Eventista: Cocktails and confectionsWritten by Brittany Craig | | email@example.com
If you think a bank is going to give you a loan for your wedding, then don’t let Uncle Sam’s door hit you on the way out! Planning and celebrating should be within everyone’s means. From little change purses to bulging wallets, there’s an appropriate way to celebrate your union.
For many brides and grooms, a lavish wedding reception is just not in the budget right now. Maybe a down-payment on your first home or paying off student loans is taking financial priority. Well, if you are one of many who are nodding their head – I’ve got the wedding reception for you!
There are five types of wedding receptions: the morning brunch, an afternoon luncheon, a cocktail party, a formal dinner and a champagne and cake soirée. A champagne and cake reception is short and sweet. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a 2:00 o’clock wedding reception – the most common time for a Toledo wedding.
A garden, park or historical venue, preferably at the site of the ceremony or nearby is best for hosting the event. Include “champagne and cake reception to follow” on your invitation.
Pass champagne and ask your bridal party and family members to toast you in good fortune. Afterwards cut cake, a tradition that represents togetherness and a mutual commitment to provide for one another. How appropriate – You’ve already committed to starting your union budget savvy!
Book your ceremony music and photographer a few hours longer to accompany the reception.
Limit your bar to just champagne and non-alcoholic beverages, or add dessert wines as well. If you have a sweet tooth, include other confection favorites. The typical timeframe for this gathering is fairly short. No more than 2 hours. Anything longer and your bar bill will be just as smashed as your sloshed guests!
Afterwards, you can whisk off to your honeymoon, or an intimate dinner with immediately family.
