You may be experiencing different emotions after your daughter has announced that she is getting married. A bit sad at the passage of time, maybe? Yet, you are probably excited at this new adventure your daughter will be having. Of course, you are also realizing that planning a wedding can be a very big deal. Is this your first time to plan a wedding reception? Whether this is your first time, or whether you have planned previous wedding receptions, you are more than likely focused on planning something very special. From securing the country club reception area to planning the event, here are some ideas that might inspire you to give a wedding your daughter will never forget.

Securing The Location

Have you decided for sure to hold the wedding reception at a country club? If you are already members of the country club, you're set to go. If you aren't members of a country club, that doesn't mean that you can't use the facility for your daughter's wedding reception. You'll just need to spend some time on detailed planning to make sure there are no disappointments later on.

  • How much will it cost for you to use the reception area?
  • Does the country club have catering services?
  • Is the wedding reception date available at the country club?
  • How many people will the designated room hold?

Planning The Event

Of course, friends and family members will be coming to the wedding reception mostly to honor the new bride and groom. However, your guests will also be looking forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones, and being a part of the event you have planned. Cover all your bases and write them on paper. Keep a note book with dividers that designate things like The Menu, The Table Decorations, The Entertainment and The Party Favors. Recording your ideas on paper will help you when it's time to carry out your plan.

  • Will you be holding an elegant affair or a less formal one?
  • Will there be a buffet or meal served by the staff?
  • Will there be a groom's cake in addition to the traditional wedding cake?
  • Will there be a DJ or a band?

You may get some wonderful ideas right from the staff at the country club. After all, they have more than likely been a part of many weddings, so the staff will have the experience to give you great counsel. For more information, contact companies like Brandy Wine Country Club.
