Organization of wedding banquets
The festive banquet, its very holding, will leave a bright imprint in your memory. And do not treat the banquet with neglect. These are the moments that you will then remember for the rest of your life.
As with any important event, the organization of a banquet must be approached with all seriousness. The main points for preparing for the banquet should be decided at least a month before the start of the celebration.
The first and most important point is the venue of the banquet. A restaurant or someone’s cottage? An apartment or a cafe? This item of the festive banquet is important, since it is easy to make a mistake here without calculating your financial capabilities, but at the same time you can greatly regret how poorly the banquet was held.
If the venue of the banquet is still a restaurant, then you need to determine the following: whether it will be the city center or the microdistrict in which you and most of your guests live, it is also possible to take care of the delivery of guests with a wedding procession; Do you need music and a dance floor; Does the interior of the institution match your tastes; Is there access to fresh air, a wardrobe, toilets?
The next important point is the compilation of the menu. The menu depends not only on your own preferences, in particular, it is worth abandoning exotic dishes, since not everyone likes oysters or lobsters. Also, a certain sequence in the presentation of dishes should be observed. Cold dishes (pickled fish, caviar) are served first. Then hot snacks (warmed sandwiches, julienne) follow. After that come seafood dishes (stuffed or boiled fish, squid, crayfish, mussels, oysters). For fish served meat products. At the end is dessert.
You should also take into account the individual characteristics of each of the guests: a special menu will be for children, people fasting, vegetarians, people suffering from allergies to a certain type of product.
As a rule, a small break is arranged between serving dessert and hot dishes, which can be devoted to a variety of games or dances. Drinks remain throughout the banquet.
The next item is the location of the guests. The place of honor at the table is occupied by the bride and groom. To the right of the bride are the parents of the groom, to the left of the groom are the parents of the bride, and then the best men and other guests. The place of each guest should preferably be marked with a name card.
At the end of the banquet, you can order a transport that would safely deliver the most ardent guests to congratulate the guests home.
If, from all the problems of organizing a wedding banquet, your head is spinning, then you can hire a caterer. A specialist who makes a living by arranging wonderful and unforgettable banquets.
In conclusion, I would like to note the importance and great importance of a wedding party. Banquet is not just a symbol and an obligatory attribute of a wedding. During the banquet, lovers are escorted by their best friends, close relatives, those people who will then provide support. Banquet is a joyful meeting of the next step in the relationship of marriage between the newlyweds. Let your banquet be bright and unforgettable, and a wonderful meeting of a new stage in your life will mark the beginning of a strong and prosperous family.
