The Seated Dinner Reception creates a more formal and traditional atmosphere. Guests will engage in conversation more exclusively with those seated at their table throughout the duration of the meal. The Seated Dinner eliminates the interruption of guests having to leave the table for service. Opportunities to circulate will therefore be relegated to before and after the meal is enjoyed. Guests will choose between entrée options in advance of the reception. Because an elegant, seated dinner requires food to be served at the same time, please keep in mind that the higher the number of guests, the more dinners will be plated before a course is served. Warming ovens are used to keep food at temperature so guests enjoy each course in unison.
