Casino gaming tables at the reception?
Elizabeth, on September 19, 2019 at 5:38 PM

Plated or buffet
Rose, on May 14, 2024 at 9:53 AM

Did anyone have a hard time debating on paying the extra for a plated dinner ? Our wedding will only be about 30 -40 guests so I’m not sure if it’s worth the extra $1k thanks!

Sierra, on May 2, 2024 at 3:28 PM

We are looking to do a plated dinner with entree choices when the guest RSVP's. Would it be weird to not include a red meat option? We were looking to do a chicken, pork and salmon option (with a...
