Whether you want to do something traditional or less conventional, you may find yourself with several questions about how you should plan your wedding reception. This portion of your event will take up much of your evening, and it serves as an opportunity to both celebrate with friends and family and give them a night of entertainment to thank them for their support. While different people may have different ideas about what “should” happen at this occasion, they can share similar questions and concerns as they plan. Texas Old Town makes wedding preparations easier by providing generous amenities to couples, and by providing venue options that ensure you have the right space for your gathering!

Where Should The Happy Couple Sit?

While it is not always needed, you and your partner may end up spending a considerable amount of time working on where you want everyone to sit during your reception. Because Texas Old Town has venues of different sizes, you can find a space that makes fitting everyone on your guest list is easier than you anticipate. However, you can run into questions about who sits where, and where you and your partner ought to be located. Many couples choose to set up a sweetheart table where they can be together. Because you two should be the center of attention, it is common for people to dress this table up with more elaborate and eye-catching pieces. However, you do still have the option of sitting with family at a designated table, or setting up a banquet table where you will be joined by your wedding party members.

How Should We Serve Dinner?

Finding the right catering service for your wedding will be important, but determining what to serve means more than just picking what you want to eat for dinner. You also need to think about how you provide meals to your guests – do you set up a buffet area, or bring out plated meals? Plating and serving individual meals can be more costly, but it can be a better fit for a more formal wedding. With a buffet, you can save money and also avoid the need to collect information on people’s diet preferences and concerns.

How Do We Communicate Important Information To Guests?

There are several traditional events that you can incorporate into your reception. You can share your first dance as a wedded couple, welcome important people to speak during wedding toasts, and perform the ceremonial cake cutting, among other moments. For any event, you need to address one specific concern – how can you grab everyone’s attention to let them know what is happening? An event coordinator can relay information for you, or you can ask your DJ or live band to make announcements at the appropriate times!
