The wedding reception is a time directly after the wedding for your friends and family to gather to offer well wishes for the bride and groom. It is also a time for celebration because the new couple is starting their lives together. There are many ways of having a wedding reception, but of course, one of the top considerations with any reception is the available budget since this will dictate where the reception is held, who will cater it, and the style of decorating.
Typically, the wedding reception is an event booked well into the future, so you have a chance to know what your budget allows for and then you can plan accordingly.
Depending on the main colours of your wedding, the reception can reflect the very same colours, which makes the entire event that much more special and appreciative for both you and your guests.
Think about the venue, again, this normally has to do with your budget, but most receptions are held in hotels, banqueting suites, restaurants, or single standing structures.
In addition, you will need to decide on the food that is catered, it can be very simple if you budget does not allow extravagant foods, or it can be an all-out bash with many different types of foods from a more expensive caterer.
In addition, the wedding reception is also, where the bride and groom cut the wedding cake, which is something that is also a planned event.
Wedding cakes come in all sizes, colours, styles, and prices; therefore, you will need to decide what you want and how much you can afford. Often the wedding cake is a very symbolic gesture of the couple, so you want to make sure you spend enough money on the cake to make it memorable for both the couple and the wedding guests.
