Planning a wedding can be just as exciting as it is stressful. When it comes to your wedding reception, picking the correct venue, finding a good caterer, and ensuring you have enough space are just some of the items you need to tick off the checklist. Luckily for you, the expert event and wedding reception planners at New Psalmist Retreat and Meeting Center can help with each and every aspect of your big day. We want to lay out some of the things that make a wedding reception great and go off without any issues and exactly how our team can help you with it all!

Plenty of Space

dreamstime_xxl_11436300_blog_receptioninnerimage_200x200Nothing is worse than standing in a stuffy room with no elbow space, being unable to push your chair in or out, and having to squeeze past strangers to get to the bar. Tight quarters are not ideal for any celebration, especially a wedding reception. Rather than worrying about if all of your guests who RSVP’d will fit into a reception hall, knowing the exact number of guests as well as how many people a room can hold will take this stress out of the planning. New Psalmist has numerous rooms that can hold any number of guests, from 20 up to 3000 (if you’re planning that big of a wedding, good luck!) You will know exactly how many people you can fit in our reception halls and rooms, making the logistics far easier to navigate.

Catering to You

Food is a focal point for any wedding reception. Whether you decide to purchase plates per guest or opt for a buffet with the whole spread, a quality catering service is crucial to keeping yourself and your invitees happy. New Psalmist has a wonderful in-house catering service that has several menus to choose from, making sure you have options for your exact needs and wants. If you prefer to bring in another caterer, that’s great too! We still provide the space for them to set up and distribute the meal for your special day. It is important that your reception space caters to you in both food and service, and we do exactly that at New Psalmist!

Don’t Go Anywhere!

An idea to take stress off both the wedding party and the guests is to plan your wedding ceremony and reception in close proximity to one another. Doing this will make traveling much easier on your guests, and having the ceremony and reception on the same campus will be ideal! Rather than getting in the car and driving elsewhere, the party is only a few steps away! At New Psalmist, we have the event space to put on a lovely wedding ceremony, while also housing wonderful banquet and reception halls for you to let loose and enjoy your reception with no fuss.

If you are planning a wedding reception, company meeting, or other large gathering, consider New Psalmist Meeting and Retreat Center for your venue needs. We have numerous banquet rooms and conference halls for any event you may be planning, so give us a call and get started today!
