Five unique ideas for planning your reception dinner

Your wedding reception dinner is an occasion for you and your guests to make long-lasting memories. While traditional sit-down dinners can be elegant and timeless, there are many creative ways to make your reception supper truly memorable. Here are five suggestions to think about when you arrange your reception feast.

  1. Food Stations - Set up food stations in place of a traditional sit-down dinner so that guests can mingle while sampling various foods. For example, there might be a pasta station, a carving station, or even a dessert DIY s’mores station.
  2. Individualized Menus - Request that your caterer design individual menus for each table or visitor. This could be as straightforward as printing each guest’s name on the menu or as complex as designing a special menu based on their dietary restrictions.
  3. Food Trucks - Hire a few food trucks to act as a substitute for a standard caterer. This can be a fun and interesting way to provide guests with a variety of food options, and it also enables a more casual and laid-back dining experience.
  4. Family Style Service - Choose a family-style service where large dishes are set out on the table for guests to share, as opposed to plating and serving individual portions. This fosters conversation by fostering a more relaxed and private atmosphere.
  5. Late Night Snacks - Provide a variety of late-night snacks as a surprise to the guests to keep them satiated throughout the reception. A station where guests can create their own ice cream sundaes could be included.
