A Guide to Wedding Receptions

There are countless things to consider when planning a wedding, but perhaps one of the most important has to do with the reception. Your wedding reception influences the feel of your wedding!

  • Breakfast/Brunch
    These types of receptions can be great for morning people or can be held the day after the wedding. 
  • Luncheon
    This type of reception is the perfect middle man if you’re looking to have a day reception without holding the ceremony too early in the morning. 
  • Cocktail
    These types of receptions aren’t as formal as a traditional wedding reception because it doesn’t require a full sit down meal and allows guests to meander around your venue with ease. 
  • Cake + Punch
    AKA a champagne and cake reception. This reception is very similar to a cocktail reception however it only features sweets and usually takes place later in the evening. 
  • Full Meal
    Full meal receptions can be served in a variety of ways including sit-down, buffet,  and family style. 
  • Potluck
    This style of reception is budget friendly and great if you have a close knit group of guests.
