To make your organization easier, here are the six most popular types of wedding receptions you can choose from.

Types of wedding receptions

1. Classic Catering

The classic banquet is the ideal option for those couples who want to give their event an elegant and refined atmosphere. Especially, since in this catering service, the food is served in courses and the guests are assisted at all times from the comfort of their tables.

Therefore, it is recommended for indoor events, though it is important that there is a good coordination between the waiters. As well as harmony between the dishes you offer in your menu, which usually includes gourmet cuisine and an elegant presentation.

Whether you decide for 5 or 3 courses, you must consider the combination of flavors!

2. Buffet Banquet

For a more casual and interactive dining experience, buffet service is one of the best types of banquets you can choose. Here, guests will be able to help themselves to a variety of delicious dishes laid out on a large buffet bar.

And don’t worry about the “crowds”, if you want to make the reception more fluid, the secret is to place several tables and take care of the distribution of the dishes. This way you will avoid long lines!

On the other hand, unlike the classic banquet, this one is recommended for outdoor parties, since the guests will need space to move around. The best thing about this style is that it encourages guests to mingle and gives them the freedom to taste their favorite flavors.

3. Traditional food banquet

This is one of the wedding receptions that stands out for its originality, since in addition to being an excellent way to share the cultural heritage of the bride and groom, it is also a great option for couples who want to have a themed event.

And the best part is that here you can play with the elegant, the classic and the fun, incorporating typical dishes of the region and a refined presentation. So get creative!

4. Cocktail banquet

On the other hand, if you are looking for a more relaxed and social celebration, the cocktail banquet is the ideal option for you. Due to its ambiance, guests can enjoy a variety of appetizers with different textures, sizes and flavors.

However, the waiters are essential in this service, since they are the ones who will make sure that the guests try a little bit of everything, handing out appetizers and drinks. And although most of them are usually standing, you can also include high tables, seating areas and an open bar for tasting signature drinks.

For this reason, it is one of the most popular types of wedding reception for couples looking for something modern and glamorous, especially if they are planning a short dinner and want to spark conversation among their guests.

5. Food Corners

This style of banquet, also known as food stations, has become popular among brides and grooms as a unique and interactive type of reception, which although it is similar to the buffet has slight differences.

After all, even when it comes to offering a variety of tasting options, each station or table usually has a different theme with a chef present to prepare requests from the guests. For example, a sushi bar, a pasta station or a meat station. 

Guests can explore different flavors and customize their dishes, creating a tailored dining experience.

6. Food Trucks

This is definitely one of the most spectacular and innovative types of wedding receptions that you can find. As it is not only the perfect option to give a modern touch to your wedding, but also to celebrate in a different and memorable way.
