More Tips for a Fun Dry Wedding Reception

Posted in: Wedding Catering Raleigh

If you’re having a dry wedding reception, you’re probably a little stressed about how some of your guests are going to feel about this big decision. Just remember that this day is about you and your new spouse, so be happy and excited. Also know that there are still many ways to have a fun and sober reception.

In our last post on dry weddings, we talked about two tips: time of day and kid friendly receptions. Your reception times, plus the amount of children at your wedding can greatly influence the serving of alcohol, essentially making it a non-issue. Go back and read it when you have a chance.

Below you’ll find a few ways to bring fun and excitement to a dry wedding reception. For the most affordable wedding catering Raleigh NC has to offer, look no further than Catering by Design. You’ll love our food, flavors, and prices.

More Fun Tips for Dry Weddings

Mocktail Bar

Instead of serving alcohol fueled cocktails, switch them out for mocktails, nonalcoholic versions. You can still have your signature drink, since personalized drinks seem to be a big wedding trend. If you’re having a lot of children at the wedding, this is a perfect opportunity to set up their own mini drink station. Kids and adults both love interactive food and drink stations.

Lots of Entertainment

Want to really crank up the fun? Be sure to provide lots of good entertainment at your reception. Entertainment can come in many forms, it’s not necessarily just about music and dancing. For instance, you can have multiple picture taking stations for your guests. Think about including a red carpet entrance, selfie or Instagram station, or a photo-booth with lots of props. You can also have game stations, like what you’d find at the carnival or fair. If you need a few more fun ideas, check out this great list.

Serving a lot of good food can also liven up your reception in ways that you never thought possible. If you’re planning your wedding reception, we invite you to give us a call to learn more about our many affordable options.
