1930s Bride – Reception

Where To Have Your Reception

It is customary for the parents of the bride to bear the expenses of the wedding reception, and, of course, their decision as to where it will be held is influenced by the amount that can be spent on that ceremony.  Either through sentiment or through the necessity for economy many people prefer that the reception be held in the home. But sometimes the decision is in favour of an hotel, at which a private dining-room and salon may be engaged. In that case the hotel attend to all the details of preparing and serving refreshments.  These can vary from a cold buffet affair to a formal and elaborate luncheon.
