Raise a glass: It’s time to celebrate.

A Toast to the Newlyweds

You’ve walked down the aisle. And now it’s time to dance. This is the festive finale to your big day, when friends, family and loved ones gather to raise a toast (or three), hit the dance floor and, of course, to enjoy the wedding cake. In other words, let the party begin. But, as always, what’s most important is to create a reception that’s uniquely you. And that’s where we come in: Our talented team can assist in planning a reception that ties in with your distinctive vision. We offer more than 30 hotel brands around the world, with a wide variety of reception spaces, decor and style, from elegant, high-ceiling ballrooms to flower-filled gardens to stylish rooftops under the stars.

A Reception That’s Uniquely You

Receptions come in all sizes and flavors. If you go the traditional route, industry experts suggest a general structure of starting with a cocktail hour, followed by the “grand entrance” of the bride and groom, the first dance, meal service and toasts, open dance floor and then the cutting of the cake. The reception is topped off with a celebratory departure of the couple, as they sail off into wedded bliss together. However, the reception is also your chance to get creative, and to craft an event that reflects your special style. Our expert planners can guide you in developing unique activities that will make your reception shine, from inventive entertainment, such as a live quartet performing your favorite tunes, to interactive activities for the guests, including games and trivia, to rethinking the concept of the cake, and serving up a delectable tower of donuts instead. Ultimately, the reception is all about making memories with your loved ones, and we’re committed to making that happen, with flourish.
