Selecting your wedding reception menu & Table set up (Art de la table)
As with almost all things wedding related. what matters most is that you as a couple love your menu choice and really enjoy your first meal together as husband and wife. Let your personal preferences guide you first and foremost. But also be open minded and inclusive so your guests can have fun too. There’s a reason you wanted to share your special day with them, and the best wedding receptions are those that everybody is able to enjoy.
Budget is really important while wedding planning, therefore, the size of your wedding guest list will dictate how to choose your wedding menu. A larger number of guests means more people to feed. If you want to save on your budget, consider spending less per plate. If you’re flexible, splurging for more impressive dishes isn’t out of the question.
The catering -Venue
The wedding venue plays an important role not only because some of them will ask that you use their internal catering team. But also your venue of choice may reflect the whole menu depending on the location, the decor and the overall style.
Style of the wedding
To get into the specificities, couples who have chosen more traditional and formal weddings often opt for a three, four or five course meal. While relaxed and more “family oriented” weddings will often embrace alternative dining arrangements.
There’s a good chance that one or two of your guests will have dietary restrictions. You don’t want to add chaos to your reception by triggering one of your guests’ nut allergies or accidentally feeding meat to a vegan friend, so getting this info ASAP is key. Oftentimes caterers are up to the challenge of creating separate dishes for them, but they’ll need to know in advance so that they have the supplies on hand. If you don’t want to go around asking everyone personally, you will want to leave space for them to indicate dietary restrictions on their wedding RSVP card.
Serving style -Options :
Guests served individually.
Most of the time there is assigned seating.
wide variety of food.

Depending on the serving style you chose, the essential table settings may vary. No matter what, try to combine the rules of Savoir vivre. For the correct placement of crockery and utensils. With the art of art de la table and be sure to organize the perfect reception.
If you choose to have served dinner a plate for bread is necessary as well as forks and knives for each course.
In our opinion, a charger is of great importance no matter what the serving style is. Bear in mind that for your great day you don’t just need practicality and ticking all the boxes, but you also need style.
Decorating your wedding guest’s tables with unique chargers, glasses or even napkins, can change the whole wedding aesthetic and create a glamorous ambiance.
Most catering services or even venues, will be able to provide you with the standard equipment for dinner. But you can easily customize your own and still stay on budget.
Importance to detail and the correct placement of tableware can make a difference to both you and your guests. It is an artistic and well studied process which will definitely upgrade your wedding ceremony.
