Brunch Wedding Reception
If you envision getting married earlier in the day, then you’ll want to have a brunch reception.
Traditionally, menus include brunch classics like Quiche, Frittata, and Eggs Benedict. A good idea is to have stations where guests can get food, like Omelettes, made to order. Light salads like a Spinach and Strawberries salad, a Fresh Tomato and Bocconcini platter lightly drizzled with a balsamic vinegar and olive oil round out a great brunch menu. For a touch of elegance, consider adding Smoked Salmon, Caviar, or a carving station with Ham, Turkey or Roast Beef. Or you can also choose to spice things up with Bloody Mary’s, Bellinis, and Mimosas. And don’t forget the coffee!
Do you have your heart set on a sit down dinner and your budget and/or timing won’t allow it?
Compromise! Have a sit down lunch! Food portions might be smaller than a dinner; however, people aren’t as hungry, during the afternoon. Especially during the summer! Lunch menus tend to be a little less expensive, but this also depends on what menu options you offer your guests.
Worried that your alcohol bill will be higher than your food bill? Well, guests tend to drink less, during the afternoon. However, if you are still worried because you are inviting a lot of drinkers, there are many different options to put a cap on your bar tab. Sit down with your coordinator, to discuss the many different options. If you don’t want to serve alcohol, it is perfectly okay! Offer your guests soda, coffee, decaf coffee, hot tea, lemonade, and iced tea.
Lunch Wedding Receptions
Dinner Wedding Receptions
The most classic and formal type of wedding reception, a sit-down or buffet dinner allows you time to really celebrate your wedding, treat your guests, and still have everyone up on the dance floor afterwards.
Start with a cocktail hour, and proceed into an adjoining room for dinner, followed by dancing, cake cutting, bouquet tossing and more.
Often the public believes that buffet options are less expensive and affords their guests more selections and food. This is not completely correct! From our experience, because you are offering more options and food, the menu price could be a little more expensive than a sit down meal.
