Planning Your Dream Connecticut Wedding: Tips from The Riverhouse’s Wedding Experts

Connecticut is one of the most beautiful places in the nation for a wedding. Our beautiful seashore, lovely rolling hills, old New England villages and grand mansions just beg to be the backdrop for a fairytale wedding.

In fact, there are so many choices for wedding venues in Connecticut, it can be hard to know where to start. Following are some tips for planning the ideal wedding, either indoors or outdoors, in the Nutmeg State.

Choose your vibe

Are you a couple that likes the look of an elegant, stately mansion? Are you seeking an outdoor wedding in a garden or near the water? Are you a modernist looking for a city backdrop for your big day? Or perhaps you’re looking for a rollicking but informal good time in the form of a barbecue or a barn dance. Determining your dream wedding backdrop can help you narrow down your list of choices and creates a good starting point for planning. To put some images to your imaginings, Riverhouse Catering maintains an excellent gallery of venues that might help inspire you.

Indoors or outdoors

There are pros and cons to each scenario. Indoors, obviously, you have better control over the elements such as rain, heat, bugs, Saturday night weed-whackers and other factors. Outdoor weddings feel natural and beautiful, particularly when the weather, the sunset and the stars align perfectly. If you like to maintain high levels of control over your event, an indoor setting might be the better choice. If you’re willing to accept a bit of unpredictability for your big day – after all, what’s a little rain when you’ve got a beautifully decorated tent? – then embrace the outdoor venue.

Be persnickety about your catering partner

Too many of us have memories of uninspired or even bad food at weddings. The truth is that food is one of the elements of a wedding people remember the most: for good or bad. While it may be tempting to pick a caterer from search results randomly, take the extra effort it requires to find a great caterer who will provide your guests with a unique meal that reflects your tastes.

No matter what type of event you choose for your wedding, make sure it’s full of dramatic experiences that will be remembered and celebrated by you and your guests for decades to come. Ideally, you want fresh food, presented well, and bursting with bold flavors or subtle delicacies. The right catering partner will exceed your expectations and add magic to your wedding.
