Do most venues offer menu tastings?

What's the typical setup for a menu tasting for a wedding venue?

NOAH'S on the Beach

Yes we do offer menu tastings in our Restaurant, typically on Sunday evenings when the restaurant is not so busy.

Couples need to book in advance and usually bring along some family or friends up to around 6ppl. 

The cost is $50pp and they pre-select the dishes they would like to try, Entrees & Mains.  They are receive the full meal as it would be served at their wedding.  Couples often use this opportunity to have an evening out with family.

Who sits on what tables at a reception?

Hi there. Can we get a basic idea of who goes on what tables at the reception? Is there an “order” to who sits closest to the front and the bridal table? Would love some ideas for groupings. Thanks.

NOAH'S on the Beach

Hi there

it is entirely up to the couple how you group their guests.  As a general rule, the immediate family, parents, grandparents of the couple sit at the tables closest to the bridal table.  At our venue we assist our couples by providing them with a floor plan so they can allocate their seating .

i hope this helps

Kind regards, Rose

Cocktail Style Reception Order of Events

Hi All, We are having a cocktail style reception (no sit down dinner) for our wedding. The ceremony starts at 3pm, reception starting at 4pm for 4 hours (8pm). My question is what would be the order of events for the reception? There is no garter or bouquet toss, I'm giving my bouquet to my grandma. My thought is, 415pm introductions > 430pm toasts and speeches > 5pm bouquet to grandma > 515pm cake cutting > 530pm first dances > 6pm party dancing > 745 send off > 8pm end. Does that seem ok? Or do you suggest something different? Thanks!

NOAH'S on the Beach

Hi Belinda

Your order of events sounds fine, with our cocktail weddings our Team will be walking around the room with the platters of canapes so this can just pause for your speeches and toasts or continue, that is entirely up to you and your partner.  We always conduct a final planning meeting about 6 weeks prior to the wedding and at that point we nut out all of the finer details, including the order of event.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards
