Keeping Your Wedding Reception Original, From Banquet Halls to Flower Bouquets
Everyone wants to have a wedding that will remain unique and fun in every guest's mind. No one wants to feel that his or her big day was unoriginal. Here are some ways to make your wedding one for the books, from banquet halls to d©cor and hors d'oeuvres.
On your big day, you will want your guests gushing about everything, from your wedding dress to the appetizers. Some creative ways to wow guests include taking a different perspective on presentation. Consider small hors d'oeuvres such as cheese cake filling inside whole strawberries, with some toasted almonds sprinkled on top. Tiny fish tacos are also a great idea. Use cooked bass or white flaked fish and pineapple salsa on top of a flat tortilla crisp. Another great finger food delight that will keep your guests more than satisfied is fried risotto balls, filled with mozzarella and cheese curds and served with fresh basil for flavor and presentation!
If you are looking for a whimsical feel at your wedding, try having it outdoors with trees nearby. One great way to beautify the area is to hang lush garden chandeliers from the trees with scented flowers billowing out of them. Even if you are inside, banquet halls are typically equipped to hang chandeliers or add decorations to pre-existing ones. Lanterns, garland lights and thick satin ribbons can also be used to beautify a setting in a unique way. For a really gorgeous flower arrangement, use exotic bird feathers to compliment a bouquet. For example, purple flowers pair great with peacock feathers.
When it comes to actually deciding where to hold your wedding reception, make sure that you choose a banquet hall that can fit the number of guests you invite. Consider the size of the dance floor, the amount of tables and the best seating arrangements. While everyone would love to have an outdoor wedding, sometimes it is safer to choose an indoor venue. Look for banquet halls that offer wedding packages. Bundles may include food, set up, flowers and an experienced planner to manage everything that happens on-site. Purchasing a wedding package may save you both time and money for planning out the little details, giving you time to focus on your vision with slight tweaks and additions.
Everyone wants his or her wedding to be really special. Carefully consider what is unique to your taste and style. This will help you decorate and deliver a wonderful experience. Remember to consider the big picture first, and then decide what little details will help you fulfill that vision.
