When most people think about receptions the first thing that comes to mind is usually a formal seated dinner however there are other options able. One of the most inexpensive receptions is a champagne and cake reception where following the ceremony guess what is offered:
Yes, you got it! Champagne and Cake!
This is a slight trend with younger couples that would like to have friends and family around for their first dance, dancing and socializing. If you’re not able to afford a formal reception, this is an option to celebrate at your ceremony venue or another venue with a nominal cost.
Another option is to add cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres, use high top cocktail tables and an open dance floor for all to enjoy the party time.
Let your style reflect you both and your budget.
