Couple’s home

First is that there are a lot of locations and places to hold the program properly during the reception. A reception can be held in the comfort of the couple’s home. The foods and settings of the program may depend on the couple’s preparation.

The family may help them in preparing the foods and the settings. But this would require a lot of effort because everything in the reception would depend on their own.

The creativity of the family and friends of the couple would also be shown if the couple would choose this reception idea. Everything that makes the place wonderful for the program proper is in the hands of their family members. But on the other hand, they could also hire catering services and event organizers to set-up your home for the reception program properly.

Most of the catering services offer a combination of foods that can satisfy the couple’s guests. And they are also assigned to decorating and setting up the table depending on their clients’ recommendations. The event organizers are assigned in setting up the overall design of the venue. They will just be needing and asking for the theme of the wedding and give their clients sample designs for them to approve. The program that will also be happening can come from the couple and the event organizers will be tasked to instruct the host about the flow of the program. But some couples prefer to let the event organizers manage the reception program.

But they would need the food and theme choices of the couple. The overall setting would depend on the event organizers on how they will set up the mood for the reception ceremony. The couple and the event organizers also communicate with each other about the program proper.
