A banquet Hall reception: What you need to know

The right banquet hall sets the stage for a phenomenal wedding. It’s where guests mingle with other guests; where the blushing bride introduces her family to guests; and where everyone socializes in celebration of the grand event. This area symbolizes communion, and everything guests look forward to after being invited to a wedding.

Cake cutting at Reception

The wedding reception is held after the completion of the formal marriage ceremony. Hosts will provide their choice of food and drink and typically provide a wedding cake for guests to enjoy. Whether the celebrations occur in the afternoon or evening, a wedding reception is the name that’s been given to any sort of social event after the wedding.

In a typical wedding reception, guests are greeted with a receiving line where the newly wed, the hosts, parents, and any maids of honour stand in order – greeting every guest in turn, so that everyone can formally congratulate the newly wed. After that point, all the guests mingle, drink, and enjoy the food that’s served.

Banquetting Hall Reception

Naturally, you’ll want to take care of this part of your wedding with the utmost care. You first need to know which city you want to host your wedding in. Then you need to choose an appropriate venue – one that can host the number of people you’re looking to invite. The Grand Ballroom at the Montcalm London is a fine example of one the most modern banqueting halls London offers.

London offers an eclectic range of wedding venues, meaning those planning to be wed soon will be likely to find something that suits them. Besides, many of the venues can be customized to the preference of the hosts. The Grand Ballroom can for instance be changed to create a stand up reception styled event or a sit down dinner.

Wedding Celebration

The venue is serviced by two grand marble reception areas that are blanketed with fresh flowers, glittering chandeliers, and Macassar ebony wood detail. It’s in the details that the atmosphere of a wedding venue is created. This makes it an ideal setting for those looking for an opulent, stylish wedding venue.

Wherever you decide to host your wedding at, be sure to check if they have the kind of banqueting hall your wedding deserves – it’ll make a huge difference to the kind of wedding you experience.
