- Wedding: May 2013
My partner and I are getting married in Central park on May 30th 2013. We will be travelling over from England with a group of approximately 40 friends and family. The actual getting married bit, seems quite straight forward and we already have our lovely officiant picked and booked. The problem we are having is finding somewhere to hold our reception afterwards.
We are getting married in the park at 3pm.There will be a number of small children (2-6 years) in our group, so I would like somewhere that is considered child friendly, somewhere their parents won’t be panicking about their safety or their children touching things they shouldn’t be. Basically somewhere our guests can relax and enjoy the day.
Food wise, again we are not looking for anything particularly fancy. My dad is a steak and potatoes type of man and I want people to be served good quality tasty food they will enjoy, preferably from a grill style menu.
We are really open to ideas at this stage and are even considering hiring caters/planners to come to our house and hold the wedding reception there. We are renting a house in Manhattan for the week we are getting married. The house also has an outside terrace which is quite a generous space.
So, my questions are these;
Can anyone recommend a restaurant/venue which could accommodate our size party and meet our requirements outlined above?
Can anyone recommend a catering company that could come to the house and set up a reception there for us? Decorations, Bar, BBQ, Grill etc….
I’m finding it really difficult trying to arrange this part of the wedding from overseas and would really appreciate peoples recommendations.
Any suggestions, guidance in this area will be gratefully received.
