Organizing a quiet dinner for a few friends can require smart planning, but that effort can pale in comparison to providing dinner to everyone in attendance at your wedding! The reception dinner can be an important part of your overall wedding experience, as well as one that can demand more financial investment, and more of your attention. With that said, a successful dinner can help make sure people are thrilled with your wedding event! In addition to providing reception spaces that can accommodate different guest sizes easily, and amenities that make serving easier for your caterers, Texas Old Town can offer helpful suggestions if you are looking for someone you can count on to cater your wedding.

Creating A Great Look For Your Tables

While food is obviously important to any dining experience, you also need to think about the atmosphere you create during your wedding reception. Your centerpiece can be important to this. While you want pieces that are striking, and worth the attention of your guests, be careful about selecting something too elaborate. The size of a centerpiece may make it hard for some table guests to see and speak to each other, and elaborate pieces can be more difficult to move. If you want to use floral arrangements for your centerpieces, stick with something that heavily features your wedding colors to give your overall event a consistent look.

Coming Up With The Right Seating Chart For Your Event

Making your seating chart can be tough, especially when you have to decide where to seat single guests, or guests who are bringing their children. Keeping groups who are familiar with each other together can be important, but keeping tables full is more important than ensuring everyone is already close to their neighbors.

Finding The Right Way To Serve Your Reception Meal

Choosing the right meal is important, and it can be fun sampling different foods from catering companies. Selecting your meal matters, but you also need to think about how everything will be served. If you have a larger guest list, laying everything out buffet-style can lead to frustrating delays. It can be easier to offer plated meals, or to serve your guests a family-style meal that brings generous portions of dishes to each table.
