Just because two people are already married doesn’t mean the planning process of the post-reception party should be skimped on. There are many reasons why a couple will need to host a post-wedding party or reception. These receptions are mostly done because a couple had eloped or could not make the wedding ceremony.
Whatever the reason, it’s essential to consider the following factors when hosting a wedding party or reception, especially at a restaurant.
Recreate the Atmosphere
The atmosphere of the post-wedding event should resemble the same as the original wedding day to provide the guests with an accurate feel of the wedding. Guests should be getting the whole experience by witnessing the same floorplan design and other design elements.
As with any wedding function or event, hiring professionals to take care of the planning and execution process is vital. It may seem less critical of an effort to plan a post-wedding event for some. It should be considered that the event is being re-imagined for a reason: to recreate the atmosphere and overall feel for those who couldn’t witness the special night.
Hiring professionals will assist in getting the event to resemble the wedding ceremony closely with the same atmosphere and feel. Professionals will recreate the whole atmosphere with the same catering services for visitors to have the same cuisine experiences.
Keep it Traditional
Tradition is vital when recreating a wedding event. A wedding day is already full of traditional elements and hosting a post-wedding event should be different. Although the couple has already walked down the aisle, there should be no reason to skimp on the traditional elements.
Dancing with partners and having a traditional wedding cake are all examples of factors that should stay in place for any post-wedding event.
The Guest List
Depending on the reason for the post-wedding event, the guest list should be closely considered as it may be happening due to specific people who may not have made it to the original wedding.
The budget also goes with the guest list as the more guests you have, the more the costs will be after an original wedding was already paid for.
Following this guide, a post-wedding party or ceremony can be a great way to showcase the original wedding day and the atmosphere.
