Have you chosen your wedding venue? Time to think about food, favours, and much more…
There is no getting away from it; planning a wedding is not an easy task. There are so many things that need to be thought about. One of the main areas of concerns is the wedding reception. There are so many different aspects regarding this that need to be considered and planned. First of all, you need to choose from the whole host of wedding reception venues around the country (and further if you’re having a destination wedding). Once you have done this, then you need to think of all the little things that tie a wedding reception beautifully together, such as, favours, table pieces, food, decorations etc. So, keep on reading for information on this.
For most women, favours are one of the exciting and less stressful things to think about regarding the planning. It is nice to be able to give something beautiful to your friends and family to show your appreciation for their attendance. Traditionally, five almonds are given. The five represent; happiness, fertility, wealth, longevity and health. However, nowadays there are no ‘rules’ about what you can give as a favour and so you can be as unique as you like.

In addition to favours and entertainment, you also need to think about how you are going to adorn the wedding reception. This involves a lot of thinking because you need to ensure that everything falls under a strict theme in order to tie together beautifully. Firstly, decide upon a colour scheme and whether you want a modern or traditional looking venue. You then need to decide on more minor things, such as table centrepieces. Nevertheless, these still need consideration. They need to tie into your theme and also the room itself. The larger the room, the taller your centrepiece should be.
Furthermore, you also need to think about what type of food you want at the wedding and whether you want a venue in-house caterer or you want to employ your own. Some venues may not allow you to have an outside caterer, so do keep this in mind!
With all of these things to think about it can be quite a scary time. But if you have decided on one of the wedding reception venues already, then half the hard work is done. Simply use the checklist above to ensure you cover all of the other elements.
