While it might seem as though you are the only couple who is concerned about sticking with a budget when it comes to planning a reception in New England, the truth is you are not alone. The majority of couples who are scouting around for the right venue to host a wedding reception in the Boston area are locked into a specific price range as well. It can be pretty overwhelming to consider all of the costs that go into your reception staging ideas and decorations, but the Crystal Room has a custom wedding option that will help you to create a beautiful budget wedding reception.
How Do We Do It?
We help our customers stick with their budget by offering a custom wedding package that covers all the standard services and options for planning a reception in New England. While we do offer additional services and items that can be added to further customize the experience, knowing that all of the essential services are included in one price quote can be helpful. The use of the venue, tables and chairs, linens, cake cutting services, four-course plated meal, champagne toast, and even a few surprising options are included in the custom wedding package. The couples can then decide to add-on extra options to enhance their reception staging ideas to create a wedding reception in the Boston area that best suits their needs.
A budget wedding reception does not have to look and feel like it was planned with a financial restriction. Many couples appreciate the ability to create a controlled event that does not stress them out or cause them to go over their budget requirements. Some do it so they can save for a honeymoon, while others do it because they have plans for purchasing a home or just want to start a debt-free life together without having to pay off loans and credit cards for their wedding. We can also accommodate single-site services for both the ceremony and the reception. This can further save costs for couples by eliminating the need for two venues and the associated costs.
Choose Your Own Menu
In spite of the fact that our custom wedding packages are perfect for couples who want to control their spending, we offer a lot of excellent options that can be used to plan a memorable wedding celebration. For example, our included menu choices feature a four-course plated meal. The first course is soup, which can be a homemade Italian Wedding, Chicken Escarole, or Vegetable Minestrone. The second course is the salad, with options that include a Tossed Garden Salad with Italian dressing or a Classic Caesar Salad.
The third course is the main entree. Our clients can choose between Roast Turkey with Sage Stuffing, Center Cut Stuffed Pork Loin with Cinnamon Apple Sauce, and a Baked Stuffed Boneless Breast of Chicken, either with a Sage Bread Stuffing or a Seasoned Rice Stuffing. The third course also comes with your choice of vegetables and starches, such as String Beans Almondine, Glazed Fancy Sliced Carrots, Whipped Idaho Potatoes, Rice Pilaf, and Oven Roasted Red Bliss Potatoes. The fourth course is dessert, which can be your wedding cake and a coffee/tea station or dessert upgrades.
Personal Coordinator Support
Another helpful service that is included in our custom wedding package is working with one of our personal coordinators. We can help you every step of the way to make sure that you have everything you want and need for your wedding reception in the Boston area. This preparation time is crucial, helping you to navigate all of the services, items, and options that you need to support your reception staging ideas and other plans. Whether that means offering information regarding local DJs, live bands, photographers, and other pre-vetted vendors, or answering questions about uplighting, audiovisual equipment, and cake enhancement options, we are there for you.
Make sure also to take advantage of our complimentary food tasting service for the bride and groom. This will help you make an informed decision about the menu options available for planning a reception in New England.
