If your daughter will be getting married within the next several months, the two of you must already be very busy. Maybe she has already selected things like her wedding dress and the dresses her bridesmaids and her maid-of-honor will wear. Is the actual wedding ceremony already planned? If so, it's more than likely that you are now focused on planning a memorable wedding reception. Read on for some ideas that might help you.
First on your to-do list for planning the wedding reception will be finding a place to hold it. The center you select for the reception will depend largely on how much money you are willing to spend on it.
Your Church Community Center - If you are on a tight budget, the community hall right at your place of worship is probably available for special events. With some creativity, hard work and help from your family and friends, you can transform the room from something plain and simple into a beautiful setting that will amaze everybody who enters.
Find out if there are things like round tables and folding chairs you can use. That will save you some money on rentals. The church might even have linens you can use.
A Rented Reception Center - Maybe money isn't much of an issue. If that's true, perhaps you are considering renting a center that is available for special events. Consider some of these reception center options:
- A hotel in your area that might have a special room for use as a reception.
- A historic home in your area that may now be used for things like weddings and other parties. If a historic home is available to you, find out how many people it will hold comfortably.
- A beautifully landscaped garden that has both an outdoor area and an indoor area for your wedding event.
- A rental party tent for an outside wedding reception.
Once you have reserved a reception center, you can get on with the actual plans for the reception. Think of getting together with your daughter to solidify what she wants. For instance, does your daughter want a formal, seated meal? Maybe she and her fiancé have decided that they want a super fun, casual event. Or a catered meal will be a good choice if you can swing the expense. Things like decorations and entertainment will need to be planned, too.
Consider making a list of things you need to discuss with your daughter. Keep a folder or a notebook with all of your notes so you can refer to them as you plan.
