We’ve been getting a lot of questions from our guests (via my mother) about our wedding day, mainly regarding transportation and logistics. We anticipated a lot of questions in this department since most of our guests are not Brooklyn/NYC natives and navigating the city can be tricky and intimidating. In an effort to provide information in an efficient way, share best practices, and also spread the word about our somewhat non-traditional reception, I’ve put together a list of FAQs and posted it all over our wedding website. Here’s how it reads, verbatim:
1.What kind of party is this? We want our reception to be a free-flowing, lounge-style PAR-TAY! In light of this, we are hosting a Progressive Cocktail reception, also known as a Strolling reception or Stationed reception. Feel free to move, mingle, dance, sit, and eat where you please, when you please!
2.What the heck is a Progressive Cocktail reception? There will be no assigned seating and (gasp!) not enough seating for all our guests. Dinner will be served from stations located around the reception space so feel free to pick and choose what you’d like to eat, and hit up the stations as often as you like! Fear not, tables and chairs will be provided so that you can sit when you want to.
3.Does this mean I’m going to be standing all night? No! There will be proper seating (i.e., at a table) for 75% of our expected guest count, plus two lounge areas of funky vintage furniture (hand-picked by the bride) next to the dance floor.
