Who else thinks fine dining receptions have become a bit too outdated? And, to be quite frank, really boring? The Long Table Feast creates the atmosphere of a big family dinner. Everyone’s seated, full and happy, and your aunts can drop you offensive comments for everyone to hear. But what’s a wedding without a little drama?
The Long Table Feast
A lot of parties are opting for a more casual and relaxed reception. Everyone’s supposed to have a good time, anyway, and the way you set up your dinner completely changes the atmosphere of your party.
Some people want to really loosen up their reception by going for an informal stand-up reception. The Long Table feast is a bit more formal than a stand-up reception, but it’s not as uptight and rigid as traditional fine dining. A banquet table is propped up at your venue, everyone can take a seat, and your food options will be served on large serving plates.
The beauty of a long table feast is it forces everyone to connect with each other. A person sitting on one edge of the table will have to ask someone to pass the potatoes or the pepper on their side. It’s really like having your whole family just sit together and eat!
