Non-Traditional Reception   2 comments

So I know I have shown you our gorgeous reception locale before, but I haven’t gone into much detail regarding the type of reception we are going to have.

(Yes, I couldn’t resist, showing off the reception venue again.) Since our room is kind of strangely shaped and has a huge cut out in the middle and the strange time of our reception, we decided to have a cocktail reception. We will have seating for about 90% of our guests. We will have no assigned seating, except for a kid’s table, a sweetheart table for Mr. Darcy and I, and one reserved table for the bridal party. The idea is to have two stations, a bar, a photo booth, and some passed hors d’ oeuvres to encourage mixing and mingling. We still plan on having dancing and our favorite wedding traditions (cake cutting, parent dances, and first dance). So the question now is what to feed our guests. Our reception is from 2pm to 6pm, so it’s not really a meal time. I don’t want our guests to be hungry and I want to make sure there is plenty of variety of food. Here’s the game plan:


1.Deep Dish Pizza Bites (vegetarian)

2. Penne Pasta with Putanesca Sauce (vegetarian)

Passed Hors d’ ouveres-

1. Italian sausage and spinach stuffed mushroom cap

2. Chicken saltimbocca satay with prosciutto and sage

3. Breaded artichoke stuffed with goat cheese (vegetarian)

4. Lobster medallion with aioli cream on a mini pumpernickel

5. Fresh mozzarella and sundried tomato on corstini (vegetarian)

So each guest will have the equivalent of an individual pizza, one bowl of pasta, and 7 hors d’ oeuvres.

So what do you think? Does it seem like a nice balance? Would you be hungry? What did you serve your guests?
