5 Tips for an Amazing Wedding Reception Dinner

Posted by Linda Hudson on June 27th, 2018

What does a wedding guest secretly wants at your wedding? Good decoration? Unique theme? Gifts? Of course, not! Good food and plenty of free drinks is the only thing a wedding guest secretly craves in your wedding reception dinner.

A standout reception dinner is easier to plan and execute than you think. All it takes is a little homework and some creativity.

Search the caterer

Once you finalize the venue, begin your search for a caterer. These two decisions go hand in hand as many venues have their own catering team and you are required to hire them. If it is not the case, they may still provide you a preferred list of vendors to work with. If you are allowed to bring an outside caterer, you may be charged extra. In such case, requires a tasting with in-house chef or caterers from the preferred list before you book the venue. Also review the menu options with the chef, especially if you want a special dish served.

Decide the seating style

A tablescape is an important component to create an intimate dining experience. Take care of every small detail of this part, like table decoration, chair style, table shape and tablecloths which come in different shape and varieties. Check out the latest trends, for example, you can buy square tablecloths as it is one of the preferred choices for a wedding reception.

Things to take care

Think about the entire dining experience as a whole. Will meal be the focus of the party? Do you want a sit-down dinner with multiple courses? What about music? Make sure that guests are not starved till the dinner is served and keep a good supply of appetizers and finger food before the big meal. It will make them grab a quick bite before they hit the dance floor.

Incorporate new food ideas

Deciding the menu is one of the most exciting parts of the wedding reception planning. Pick up every dish you will serve and include unexpected twist, like cupcakes with melted cheese frosting. You can also play with serving styles. All these elements make the dinner party interesting.

Local and seasonal food

Giving your guests the most flavorful food with right quality ingredients should be your priority. Staying local is a great way in this direction. Why invest in exotic food when you have plenty of fresh locally grown groceries available? It is also about going green.

Hope these tips will help you plan a fabulous wedding dinner party.
