The Reception

Youíve done it. Youíve gotten married and now itís time to party! So what kind of party are you going to throw? These days, almost everything goes when it comes to the event after the ceremony but whatever kind of reception you decide to have it should always be planned with elegance and class in mind. That doesnít mean you have to spend an excessive amount of money, lavishing your guests with five course meals and gifts. You can plan a classy reception that is less formal but still elegant.

  • Cocktail Hour:
    At many weddings this is the first hour of the reception. Usually youíll see hors d'oeuvres, either passed butler-style, at buffet stations, or a combination of both. It is often held in a different room than the reception if you are having your wedding at a hall/restaurant that caters to weddings.
  • Afternoon Wedding Reception:
    If you are getting married in the morning or early afternoon you can have a reception that is less formal than an evening reception. Often because of the time of day, it is appropriate to serve light food at the reception. You could have a buffet rather than a sit-down meal, or just serving stations of heavy scrumptious hors d'oeuvres.
