Your wedding is one of the most memorable days of your life. And, while it will always be a special day for you, you want it to be equally memorable and special for your friends and family. You spend a lot of time planning unique touches and making sure you have all the fine details arranged. But, for your guests, one of the most important parts of the day will be your wedding reception. With this in mind, it’s time to make your wedding banquet one of the most impressive events your guests will attend.
You have lots of choices when it comes to how you will serve food to your guests at your wedding reception. You can choose to serve a sit-down meal, a family-style dinner, a buffet, a creative food bar or even just hors-d’oeuvres. But, whatever styles you choose you need to ensure your food is scrumptious. Take the time to make sure your caterer or banquet chef provides you with a tasting of each item that will be served. If you’re happy with the food, your guests will be, too.
Your banquet decorations will also be something your guests will remark upon when they enter your reception. You can choose a simple color palette, for example, black and white and create a stunning Banqueting Halls in London. Or, you can go more elaborate and choose a theme that relates to you and your groom. Cinderella, Carnival, or Fire and Ice could all be the inspiration for themed banquet decorations that create a memorable backdrop for your reception.
One of the shining stars of your wedding reception is most definitely your cake. Your wedding cake is the ultimate of all desserts and, as such, it should showcase your style. You can go glam by choosing a cake covered in gold leaf or gold dust which can be enhanced with flowers, perhaps the same ones from your bouquet, or pick a naked cake, forgoing all the icing for blooms or fruit. And, don’t hesitate to try a chocolate wedding cake. Since most brides choose a white cake, a chocolate cake will definitely stand out, whether it is covered in buttercream icing or decorated with an assortment of berries and clusters of red anemones or both!
If you are looking to add romance to the overall theme of your wedding reception, candles are the way to go. Dim the overhead lights and flood your reception with candles. Tea lights and votives can be added in large quantities to create a romantic dinner for all your guests.
You and the groom are definitely the focus of the day. And at the reception, you will want to be front and center. Therefore, plan to create a theme for your stage decorations. You can showcase your colors in this area by adding flowers, lights, curtains, balloons, or other items.
Looking for an endearing and memorable theme for your wedding reception? Then think about a Secret Garden Theme? This theme allows you to enjoy the outdoors. And all it has to offer and can be easily achieved at the banquet when you incorporate flowers and greenery.

Kris was the calm in the storm that I found wedding planning to be. Kris held my hand, encouraged me and also made me laugh when I didn’t feel like laughing. She is organized, professional and is the absolute best at what she does"
