A Reception to Remember

There are so many things to think about when you are planning a wedding and reception.

Who should you invite? How many should you invite? The list goes on and on and you may find yourself completely overwhelmed in decisions and things to remember to do.

A very important part of your wedding day is your reception.

Celebration Hall is the perfect venue for an indoor or outdoor reception. One great way to celebrate your reception is a Cocktail Reception. This can be fun and less formal than a sit down dinner reception. A simple note added to the wedding invitation stating “cocktail reception immediately following” should suffice to let guests know what to expect. Your menu can be simplified a great deal by having an assortment of hor d’ouerves. A theme such as Caribbean with a tropical flair in décor, food and drinks is one great idea. Cheese and fruit trays, a chocolate fountain with fresh fruit and chunks of cake to dip are always a hit. A signature cocktail for your wedding theme is a fun way to celebrate. For instance if you are going with a Caribbean theme offer Pina Coladas or Rum Runners for your guests. Beer and Wine can also be served if you wish. You will need to consider all of the costs in your wedding budget planning. You will also want to provide a non-alcoholic punch or other beverages for minors or those who do not imbibe. For entertainment, consider a live band or DJ and dance the evening away. Cocktail receptions are a good time for guests to move about and mingle with one another. Celebration Hall has plenty of room for just this type of event. The best way to reach us is via email, with most questions responded to in about a day. Feel free to give us a call as well!
