WHICH TYPE OF RECEPTION WILL WORK BEST FOR YOU?
Keep in mind that whatever you serve your guests, you can have it served in a number of ways. That’s because caterers and banquet staffs have various connotations of the word reception.
A reception can be with or without a theme; its seating can be configured to encourage mingling or to foster intimacy; and it doesn’t necessarily have to include a full meal. Some caterers are full-service caterers (able to provide linens, liquor, table skirts, din- nerware and decorations), while others focus entirely on the food. Most hotel and banquet facilities expect you to shop their in-house menus and will provide a limited selection of trimmings. You will have to do a little interviewing to discover what is out there to fit your specific reception needs, style and budget. Armed with an appetite and some basic information about reception planning, the process can even be fun.
In its most general sense, the reception is simply the time after your wedding when you will “receive” your guests. Specifically speaking, it’s where you
will eat, drink and make merriment.
