No Wedding Party Table at Reception

I am looking at venues for our reception and along with that table set ups. We prefer long tables. I have always loved the idea of not having a wedding party table and sitting amongst our guests. At this stage we are not having a formal wedding party just my nieces and nephews as flower girls and ring bearers. Does anyone have any examples of how couples have done this? Or advice for and against doing this?

Tuggeranong Homestead + Events

Congratulations on your engagement! We are absolutely delighted to assist in making your dreams come true at Tuggeranong Homestead. Our spacious barn allows us to arrange long tables, providing you with the opportunity to be close to your beloved guests.

We have a wealth of creative ideas for you to be seated among your guests, ensuring an intimate and memorable experience here at Tuggeranong Homestead. In the past, our brides have enjoyed adding personal touches, such as ladder-like arrangements of flowers or other decorative elements to indicate their seats.

Additionally, you may want to explore the idea of a sweetheart table where you and your new husband can relish each other's company while still being part of the celebration.

Your engagement is a very special time, and we're excited to work with you to create the perfect setting for your wedding day." Warmest regards Gerry and Ann 0419 533 298 info@tuggeranonghomestead.com.au


Wedding venue crisis

Hi, in crisis mode, our venue has double booked a portion of our room booked and are barely communicating with us to come to an agreeable solution, except at an additional charge to us (including additional fees that are not in the contract). We feel so helpless and defeated a month out before the wedding day!!! Any advice or help or tips?

Tuggeranong Homestead + Events

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Dealing with a double booking and uncooperative venue staff can be incredibly stressful, especially so close to your wedding day. 

Please reach out to discuss further and to see if we might be able to assist.  Please feel free to contact us on 0419 533 298 or email info@tuggeranonghomestead.com.au

As we possess our own liquor license, it is essential that adults place orders for the children's beverages directly at the bars. Rest assured, we provide a family-friendly environment to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and safe experience.
