Description: Wedding Receptions

Require careful planning

No wedding would be complete without a reception and no reception will be successful without proper planning.

Venues are at a premium in the High Country these days, but most popular are church fellowship halls, historic inns, hotels, back yards and gardens.

Weather is always a factor to consider in the mountains, so having a back-up plan for an outdoor even it vital.

Don’t delay reserving the spot of your dreams for your post wedding celebration, are the more limited resources an area offers, the faster they are booked.

Most churched where wedding are performed will also allow receptions in their fellowship halls. However, most also have restrictions regarding alcohol and dancing.

Few locations in the area today are able to provide reception space plus on sight catering, so careful planning is required to coordinate the two.

Whether you choose basic appetizers, a multi course sit down meal or a buffer line for your guests, advance planning and open dialogue will be required between you and your vendors of choice. The same goes for beverage services.

Don’t forget the music do you want a disc jockey, a live band or relaxing piano music in the background?

The cost of your reception can vary greatly, but every dollar will be well spent with advanced planning and utilizing professional vendors or trustworthy friends and family members.
