Tips for Creating a Fantastic Wedding Reception — Q&A With The Revere Golf Club
Planning your perfect wedding, in particular the wedding reception is no easy feat. From the décor, themes, wedding traditions, catering and much more, there are endless possibilities for couples to choose from. So, to help Las Vegas brides and grooms create their perfect wedding reception, we at Bridal Spectacular teamed up with Kenzi Blalock, the Wedding Sales Manager at the stunning The Revere Golf Club to provide couples with great tips that will help lead to planning success!
Bridal Spectacular: What are your top tips to couples when they are selecting their reception theme, colors and décor? Also, is there anything you recommend they stay away from?
Kenzi: Go with the seasons. It’s very important to take note of the time of year you have chosen to have your wedding. By paying special attention to the season, you are better able to accommodate the color scheme and types of flowers you might be dreaming of to fit your perfect theme!
Planning out your budget is another very important step when it comes to the reception and weddings in general. It’s important to make sure you have set aside the appropriate funds so your vendors can ensure your expectations and visions are able to come to life. In accordance with this, also trust your vendors!! They do this for a living, day in and day out, week after week and they will not steer you wrong!
As far as things to be weary of, we all love Pinterest and DIY projects. However, most times brides are unaware of the commitment and skill it often takes to pull off these projects in a way that will meet their own expectations. In the end, not only are they often disappointed with the final product, but they are also stressed out and pressed for time. So ladies, if you are going to venture into the DIY wedding world, please ensure you allow yourself MORE than enough time and resources to work on them, so in the end, you can enjoy the wedding process. Remember, this is an once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Bridal Spectacular: When it comes to the reception menu, what are your tips for creating a great menu that the guests will love, but will still work with a couple’s budget?
Kenzi: Keep the menu classic and simple and use fresh ingredients — it makes all the difference in the world! A simple dish with some TLC created the right way can blow people’s socks off!
Bridal Spectacular: For wedding traditions, is there anything you recommend that a couple definitely includes in their wedding?
Kenzi: Weddings should be completely unique to the couple. There should never be any do’s and don’ts or out of style traditions. If it makes you happy and is the best representation of you and your fiancé, then do it!
Bridal Spectacular: Is there anything you suggest to provide a better overall experience for their guests?
Kenzi: As event professionals, we need to ensure our customer experience is seamless. Anytime you’re out on the “show floor” and in view of guests, it’s important to be attentive and also anticipate your guests’ needs and wants. Create an environment that is hospitable, friendly and always have a smile on your face!
Bridal Spectacular: What are the current trends you’ve been seeing at wedding receptions?
Kenzi: Uplighting is such a fantastic way to boost the ambiance of any room and really transform it into something special. In my opinion, you want to incorporate the five senses: touch, taste, smell, sight and sound! Also, one of the most prevalent trends I’ve been seeing is brides and grooms that are incorporating more cultural elements into their receptions.
Bridal Spectacular: Is there anything special or unique that The Revere does to ensure couples have a great and memorable wedding experience?
Kenzi: When you come to the Revere to get married, it’s a family affair! We work hard to ensure that all of our couples, as well as their guests feel like they’re at home. We not only work with you, but we become friends with you and build a special relationship with every couple that meets with us.
