Unmissable Pieces Of Advice You Need To Hold The Perfect Wedding Reception

You might be surprised to know that the wedding reception can make or break a wedding. After all, it’s the main part of the wedding that guests look forward to. And it’s what they will remember from your big day. Therefore, once you have sorted out your ceremony, it’s time to switch your attention to sorting out your reception. After all, you want your wedding to stand out from the rest. Therefore, here are some unmissable pieces of advice to hold the perfect wedding reception that your guests will absolutely adore.

Choose a beautiful location with lovely grounds

First things first, you need to pick somewhere to hold your wedding. And one of the main factors that you should be considering when you are choosing a reception venue is the location. After all, the location is what will help your wedding stand out from the rest. And your wedding photographs won’t look spectacular if you don’t have a beautiful location full of photo-worthy spots. Therefore, hunt down a fantastic location which has lovely grounds which will be perfect for your photos. And if you pick somewhere wonderful, it will definitely get your guests ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ when they arrive at your venue; a reaction every bride is looking for!

Pick somewhere that is exclusive to your wedding party

When you are holding your wedding, it can be impersonal if other hotel guests are walking around amongst your guests. In fact, it can make your wedding feel less special if you keep bumping into people you don’t know! Therefore, you can make your wedding extra special by getting an exclusive venue. That way, there will be no one else aside from your guests during the big day. It can make your guests feel more comfortable too if they know they don’t have to be concerned about offending strangers. And with an exclusive wedding reception venue, you know that all the staff will be focused on your big day so it can make you feel like you and your new husband are VIPs.

Opt for a venue that has plenty of room for your guests

It’s also important that you have enough room for guests at your wedding venue. After all, there’s nothing worse than everyone being cramped in one room. In fact, it can make it a nightmare when your guests are trying to get a great shot of the first dance. And it can be hard for everyone to get their groove on with limited space. Therefore, to ensure your wedding reception is fantastic, you need to pick a spacious venue. With more than one room, it can be good if people want some time away from the loud music. After all, it can be hard for older guests to handle hours of listening to loud tunes!

Make sure that the food is to die for at the venue

Another thing that can help your wedding reception to stand out from the crowd is the food. After all, everyone can’t wait to try the wedding breakfast. And you want to leave a lasting impression. The best way you can do this is to make sure the catering is top notch. Ask for samples before the big day so that you can check out the food for yourself. And you can then make changes before your wedding day to ensure the food is cracking. As we said before, remember to ask your caterers if they can do a custom menu for your big day. That way, you can make the food extra special and delicious for your wedding day!

Keep surprising your guests during the wedding reception

It’s also important to make sure your guests are entertained throughout the day. After all, it can be a long day for guests, especially for people who don’t know many other guests. Therefore, you need to keep surprising them during the day. For example, you might want to hire some magicians to come and keep guests busy in-between wedding breakfast courses. And you could consider doing some fireworks in the evening. These little extras can help your big day to stand out from everyone else’s.

Don’t leave too much time before the disco begins

After the wedding breakfast, it can be a long wait until the disco starts. And it’s easy for some guests to get bored during this time. However, you can ensure you have the perfect wedding reception by timing the day out properly. It’s best to not start the day off too early. Otherwise, there will be a lot of sitting around for guests. You should consider having the ceremony at 1 or 2 pm, and then sit down for the meal at 4 pm. That way, you should be finished by 6.30pm, and then you can start the disco at half 7, so there is only an hour wait for guests. It means they won’t be bored and will enjoy your wedding reception.

Pick somewhere with accommodation close by

There’s nothing worse than having to drive for miles after a wedding. After all, it tends to mean you have to leave earlier. And as for drinking, it has to be out of the question. Therefore, to ensure you hold the perfect wedding reception, you should pick somewhere that has accommodation. That way, people can shuffle to bed once the party is over. And if you can’t find a venue with bedrooms, you should at least pick a venue which has several hotels within five miles. That way, your guests can just get a taxi back to their hotel after the wedding reception and collect the car the next day! Your guests will look back on your wedding reception much more favorably if they can enjoy themselves without worrying about accommodation and transport!

 

Make sure you accessorise the venue well

Decor is also another way you can make your wedding reception perfect. After all, adding cute touches like special photos of you and the groom, and beautiful flowers around the venue can make your wedding extra special. Therefore, get some great accessories you can use to dress your venue before the big day. The more personal, the better as this will help to make your wedding unique. You can find further help in this article on planning the decor for your venue.

Don’t make it too formal for your guests  

With a lot of weddings nowadays, they are skipping traditions. After all, things like receiving lines can just make the day feel even longer for guests. And long speeches can also be painful when the guests just want to get merry. So if you want to hold the perfect wedding reception, you need to ensure your wedding isn’t too formal for your guests. Skip traditions which are past their sell-by date and focus on ensuring your guests have a fab time.

Be careful when it comes to your seating arrangements

Sorting the seating plan leaves many couples shuddering in horror. After all, it can be a nightmare sorting out who is sitting where. But if you want to hold the perfect wedding reception, you need to make sure everyone will be comfortable in their seats. After all, you don’t want for your guests to feel uncomfortable next to someone they don’t like. Therefore, spend time getting the seating arrangements right. And if you can’t please everyone, let people sit where they want and have no seating plan! That way, you can’t be blamed for any awkward seating arrangements.

And remember if you need some help holding an amazing wedding reception, you can hire a professional wedding planner to organize your day. They will be able to think of small touches which will make it extra special.

That is the reason why many women choose a romantic wedding, with a princess type of gown that they will remember forever.

While they will still be wearing a white dress in most cases, they will pick a venue that is practical in term of location but also in terms of administration. They are more likely to be looking for hotel venues, that are equipped to receive and serve their guests during the day, but also that can offer rooms to those who want to spend the night there.

#3. The Bride Who Lives In A Dream From The Past

Vintage weddings are a hot trends since the past years, and therefore brides who are looking to get married in a vintage-like dress and within a décor from the past, prefer country estates which can offer an intimate and homely atmosphere very close to a story of Miss Marple. Often country houses are decorated in a way that enables the bride to pick themes from the first half of the past century without any trouble.

#4. The Bride Who Wants To Celebrate Her Love With A Few Chosen Ones

What makes a wedding day count is not the number of guests who are present, but the amount of love in the room.

Locate the perfect venue

Choosing your reception venue is not an easy task. There are lots of things to consider before you sign on the dotted line and hand over your money. For instance, you’ll have to ensure the building is in a suitable location so that everyone can attend. You’ll also have to think about the size of the room and the number of people you plan to invite. Just remember that most venues will allow you to haggle over the price. So, you should never accept the first quote you receive.

Find a reliable catering company

There is no getting away from the fact that you will have to spend a lot of money on food for your guests. So, it makes sense to look for a catering specialist that has a good track record. Being as you’re spending so much, you need to ensure the people at your party get the best cuisine available. Like it or not, some catering companies are better than others, and that’s why you need to read online reviews. You could also ask any married friends for word of mouth recommendations. At the end of the day, you’re only going to have one wedding, and so you want to make it as special as possible. The right food can help to make that happen.

Order your flowers from a respected florist

You probably ordered most of your church flowers a long time ago. However, you might not want to use the same company to deliver flowers for your reception. With that in mind, now is the time to research alternative providers online. Just make sure you explain to them that you’re buying for a wedding. That way, they should take extra care and deliver everything with time to spare. Avoid large chain stores as your flowers will look the same as everyone else’s. You are much better to choose an independent business where the owner cares deeply about the displays they create.

We hope your wedding day is everything you imagined, and that you make lots of happy memories. Now you just need to start worrying about booking your honeymoon. The destination is down to you, but places like Mexico and St Lucia are incredibly popular at the current time. Just make sure you visit somewhere you haven’t been before, and you should enjoy the experience. Good luck!

Across The World: The Best Menu for Your Wedding

Planning a wedding is never an easy task. You have to rent a venue, look for the perfect gown, choose a cake, and so much more! There will always be this pressure to have a perfect wedding. Choosing your wedding menu is also going to be an important and challenging part of this.

It’s perfectly natural that you’d want to impress your guests. However, you must keep in mind that there are a lot of other factors you should consider in planning your wedding menu.

For instance, you must take note of the time when you will be serving the food to your guests. Is it going to be around lunchtime or dinner? How many guests will you be serving? How much is your budget for wedding food? Are you planning for a seated-plated, a buffet, or a food station?

For more info on how to cut your wedding food costs. Here are some ideas as well:

Wedding Menu: Asia vs. Europe

When looking into versatile wedding menus, you can look into European or Asian cuisines. If you’re looking for a light and fancy dinner food, you might want to look into European food. But even though European food is light, it can still satisfy your taste and appetite.

However, if you are looking for a hearty lunch with an oriental twist, the Asian cuisine is a good place to look into. Being a large continent, Asia can surely offer you a wide array of cuisines that will fit your and your partner’s preferences.

Heading West For Your Wedding Food

The European Cuisine is mostly popular for Italian, Greek, and French dishes. This is also probably why most buffets and restaurants avoid missing out these particular themes. Unlike other continents like the American or the Asian continent, European Cuisine has a quite definitive identity because of their drinks, cheese, herbs and spices.

Italian Wedding Menu

Pasta, cheese, herbs and seafood are staples in Italian food. This is because Italians are very conscious about what they take and particular with the quality of the ingredients in the food that they cook.

Greek Wedding Menu

Surrounded by bodies of water, Greek food has a lot of similarities to the Italian cuisine. However, Greek cuisine emphasizes on the color. You might notice that Greek food involves a lot of flavor and color going on by adding fruits and vegetables together. Their dishes are also more on dairy products than meat.

French Wedding Menu

The French on the other hand are famous for their pastries, meat and drinks. Spirited drinks, cocktails, and other alcoholic drinks are a usual especially during dinner time for the French. This is also why classic champagne or signature cocktails are always present during a wedding, most especially for the symbolic toast.

Choosing Among Asia’s Best

Since Asia is a very big continent, it is quite challenging to sum up its cuisines in one definitive line. There are a lot of ideas that may come to mind when we say Asian cuisine. However, we can categorize Asian cuisines as East Asian, South/Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern (as known by most people) or West Asian.

Japanese Wedding Menu

Ramen, sake, and sushi are some of the most famous Japanese dishes. Like most other cuisines, the Japanese are known for using unique ingredients only common in their country like the bonito flakes, mirin, dashi and miso are some of their well-known food ingredients. However, the Japanese are not very keen on drinks.

Indian Wedding Menu

Curry and turmeric, those are some of the things that come to our minds when we hear about Indian cuisines. However, curry based dishes aren’t the only dishes you can serve on your wedding day. Indian cuisine is also known for Buddhist and Hinduist influences. This is also why vegetarian dishes play an important role in Indian dishes.

Don’t Sweat It – It’s Your Day!

At the end of the day, your wedding itself is the most important thing, and not just the food. Fortunately, nowadays you can go for a food tasting with caterers before you book them. That way, you won’t be making decisions out of thin air.

Stressing yourself about the smallest details might actually just lead to a bad wedding day. Remember that choosing the perfect wedding menu for you and your partner is not all about impressing your guests. More importantly, it should embody you and your partner’s tastes and preferences.

Engaged: Now What?

Engaged: Now What?

 

Just got engaged? Congrats!! – Here’s what you need to do next.

Make The Announcement

Some couples just don’t feel right if anyone knows their big news before their parents and other close family members do. So if possible, tell both sets of people in person, face to face. If your parents don’t live nearby, put in a special phone call, or surprise them with a visit!

Think About Ideas

Sit down with your fiancé and talk ideas. Think about the style you’d like, whether it’s a beach bash, a sit-down dinner in a ballroom or a ceremony on a mountaintop. Get creative! It is your wedding day after all – you can do what you want!

Decide On A Date (ish)

While you don’t have to set a firm date now, it’s smart to have an idea of what month or season you want to marry in. Then you’ll know how long you have to get things organised. Because your wedding’s size determines where you’ll hold the party, how much it will cost (prices usually rise per guest) and whether travel will be involved, creating a guest list is one of the most important things to do. So make your list! – Your fiancé and both families should do the same. You can, and likely will, cut later, but this first number will be your base.

Settle On A Budget

It’s rare these days that the bride’s parents pick up the whole bill, so decide on your bottom line. Find out from both sets of parents how much they can contribute (if anything!) Never expect everything to be paid for!

Organise Yourselves

Buy a notebook and separate it into sections for each budget category. This way you can write down the amount you want to spend on the item and then note your expenditures. As you get to your limits, you can start to figure out ways to cut costs.

Pick A Venue For The Ceremony

Finding an officiant and a ceremony site can be simple. Maybe you like the idea of country house wedding venues, but moved away from there a long time ago. – Even if you’re no longer living in the area – you may have family who still are, and can help out. Sometimes for the sake of convenience, couples choose a place that’s in between their homes and their parents’. And then there’s the destination wedding; just make sure that everyone you really want to join you and your groom can afford to travel and is able to make it.

Pick A Reception Venue

Think again about those wedding dreams, and see how they mesh with reality. Perhaps you envision an outdoor garden. Great, but what if you can’t find just the right place, or the weather becomes an issue? Maybe there’s a quaint hotel with a pretty courtyard that would suit. Use local resources to narrow down options like a wedding planner or a recently married friend. Check wedding websites and bridal magazines. Then start scheduling visits.

Amazing Ideas That Can Keep Your Wedding Food Costs Down

 

When it comes to planning a wedding, many couples worry about the amount of money they need to spend. Most people try to cut down costs in a variety of ways. However, there is still one part of a wedding that many people forget to budget for. And that is the food! Wedding food can be very expensive, especially if you fail to set yourself a reasonable budget. Thankfully, there are a number of ways you can limit the amount that you spend on food for your big day. Hopefully, these ideas should help you!

Limit The Bar

Many couples have an open bar at their wedding evening party. This is when all the drinks are paid for by the couple, and the guests get to drink for free. However, as you may suspect, this can become extremely expensive. Some couples decide to limit the amount they spend on an open bar by setting a limit. Once the limit has been reached, guests need to start paying for their own drinks. There are some ways that you can make this even cheaper. You could, for instance, have a BYOB party. This is where guests will bring their own drinks to the party and will go down very well if you are having a boho-style wedding.

Think Of Alternatives

Okay, so there are some wedding traditions that you won’t be able to get away without. One example is the wedding cake. You can’t have a wedding without a cake! But there is one downside to this tradition – getting a cake can be very expensive! There are some ways to reduce the cost, though. One of the best is to think of a cool alternative. For instance, what about a cheese wedding cake? You’ll find that most of these alternatives work out cheaper than a traditional cake.

Keep Staff Numbers Down

During the reception, you will need to have waiters and waitresses who serve all the dishes to the guests. If possible, you should try and limit this waiting staff to the only front of house staff that you have. Otherwise, you are only going to push up your costs because you will have to pay extra wages. Some couples choose to have servers walking around with trays of appetizers before the meal. Do you really need to employ these extra servers? Can you even afford it? The answer is probably not. So keep things simple and just stick to waiting staff.

Serve Sharing Dishes

You will have certainly been to a restaurant where you have the option of ordering big family size portions that you pass around the table, right? And did you notice how much cheaper it was to order the larger dishes compared to an individual meal for everyone? It would have certainly worked out a lot cheaper! And it will be like that for your wedding catering as well. So instead of having individual dishes at the reception, go for sharing platters. Not only is this cheaper but it also creates a great communal atmosphere during the meal!

Tips for Limiting Your Wedding Guest List

wedding planning, wedding blog, the art of wedding blog

 

Weddings can be tremendously expensive. The bigger the wedding, the more expensive it becomes. You might need extra transport, a bigger venue, more invites and a lot more food and drinks. Food, in fact, is one of the biggest expenses of your wedding day. A great way to save your money is to cut your guest list down, and the best way to keep your numbers low is to ask yourself these questions.

When Did You Last See Them?

Is this someone you only see at special occasions? Or even less? If it’s less, they don’t need an invite to your wedding. If you want a small wedding, only invite people that you see regularly. Or perhaps people that you’d like to see regularly, but family and work gets in the way. If you haven’t seen them for a year, and haven’t missed them, cross them off.

Would You Buy Them a Meal?

At the end of the day, you might well be buying all your wedding guests a 3-course meal, plus drinks and canapés, maybe even a buffet afterwards. Would you buy them a meal in everyday life? If no, are you sure you want them at your wedding?

wedding planning, wedding blog, best wedding blog, art of weddings blog

Are They on the List Because of Someone Else?

Often when we make a guest list, there’s a lot of “well, we need to invite her, because we’re inviting him”. Often this happens with work friends or extended family; people you’re worried might get upset if you don’t invite them. Don’t do this. Invite who you want to. Only because you want to. Explain to people that you’re only having a small wedding, so not to get offended if they’re not invited. You’ll probably find that quite a few of the people who only made the list because they know someone else on it will be quite relieved they don’t have to face the expense of being a wedding guest for someone they’re not really that close to.

Will You Speak to Them on the Day?

Will you or your partner take time out of your wedding day to speak to this person? Would you notice if they weren’t there? It they aren’t going to have a positive impact on your day, don’t invite them.

Do They Need a Plus One?

Are you giving everyone a plus one? Obviously, partners you know should be invited. But if you need to cut the numbers down, don’t feel bad about asking people to attend on their own.  A lot of people are opting to do that these days.

The best thing to do is to decide what size wedding you want. How many guests do you want to invite? Pick a number that works with both your dream wedding, and your budget. Next, write a first draft of your list, then go down it answering these questions, and cross out any names you can. If you decide that you do want a big wedding, there are other ways to save.
