You don’t have to have a seated dinner reception if you don’t want to! Here’s how to do this:

Weddings are very frequently thought to be very formal events where a seated dinner is an absolute must. However, that’s completely untrue, especially today when brides and grooms have a lot more freedom of choice when it comes to what they have at their wedding.


If you want to have a non-seated dinner, you should definitely know that there are tons of options to choose from. Here are some tips to help you with this:

  • First and foremost, keep in mind that your wedding reception does not have to be centered on a dinner party. You can very well have a marvelous brunch party or an evening soiree where you serve just cake and desserts.
  • Moreover, even if you do choose to have your reception at dinnertime, you still don’t have to have a seated dinner. You can serve your guests delicious passed appetizers or you can have a buffet dinner too!
  • Whatever you choose though, make sure you inform your guests on what they should expect from your event. Don’t mention this on your wedding invitations, do it on your wedding website where you will have more space to give everyone the details the need in order to be prepared for your wedding.
  • Also, remember that just because you are not having a traditional reception, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all those cute wedding customs (such as the First Dance and the Cutting of the Cake, for example). You can have them regardless of the time of the day at which your party will take place and regardless of what you actually want to serve your guests with!
