It's a bit difficult to choose a reception venue when you're not sure how many people are going to be there! Our RSVP date is set for July 1st, but we expect there will be at least a few people that join along in the last few months before the wedding. We wanted to make sure we had a space that was big enough!
Knowing we weren't going to be making a trip to Vegas to check out the venues, we went with a place that had amazing reviews. Hundreds of couples can't be wrong, right?
Our reception venue is Maggiano's which is located in the Fashion Show Mall (how appropriate for me...)
Maggiano's is an Italian family restaurant that has a number of private reception rooms. We've decided to rent three rooms that can be transformed into one large space with a balcony. We haven't decided on decorations yet, but I'm thinking we are going to stick with minimal decor as I really don't want to have much to worry about for the wedding besides showing up and having a good time!
I'm very excited for the reception as the reviews of Maggiano's are fantastic. We have a family-style dinner, which is where we pick several dishes and they bring them to the tables and place them in the middle so people can serve themselves. It will be hard to narrow down the choices as everything on the menu looks delicious!
A little over five months to go!
Do you have any tips for me on menu-choosing or easy decor?
