A wedding reception is a once in a lifetime experience and you want to make sure to get everything perfect. Your family is there and everyone is expecting an amazing time, but regardless if it’s a party for 50 or 500 people make sure you take care of these aspects and everyone has plenty of fun.
There’s bound to be time before the food is served and everyone arrives to the reception hall from wedding venue. While everyone is waiting people to arrive, why not provide cocktails. Creating premade cocktails or a small menu of cocktails can help lighten the mood. If you’re making the cocktails yourself, then why not choose plastic martini glasses or other elegant glasses. You don’t have to worry about glasses breaking or washing them at the end of the night.
People will be hungry and it can be 30 minutes or more before the main meal is served. It takes time for people to go from the wedding venue to the reception area, so compliment the cocktails with delicious appetizers. You can have something classic and elegant or something inexpensive and quick. All that really matters is that people have a snack before being seated and enjoying the meal. You’ve got a lot on your mind and the last thing you want to worry about is appetizer plates. We have a variety of wedding plates and party plates to choose from. We also have plastic silverware, so people don’t have to use their hands.
It’s finally time. The main meal is the crowning achievement of the wedding reception. The meals itself can be sit down or buffet style, whichever best suites your theme and style. The same goes for the food itself. You can have prime rib, fried chicken or pasta. Caterers often will give you a choice of foods and sides for you to choose from. It’s important to pick something that you love and not just something that you think will be a good fit for your guests. It is your day, after all. You can go with traditional circular plates or go against the grain with plastic square plates. Elegant disposable plates give you the look and feel of China without the cost.
After the main meal, everyone is pretty full, but there is always room for dessert. You have a few options including using the wedding cake as a dessert or you can have a dessert table with a layout of pies, cakes and other tasty treats. Either way, you’re going to need nice disposable plates. Cut out pies and cakes and put them on our plates for weddings, so people can grab and go.
