Reception food will definitely EAT a big chunk on your wedding budget. That’s a a fact. While taste and food aesthetics are give-aways when deciding for wedding food, one major thing you need to consider is the kind of reception you want to have.

Consider your budget, food choices and inclusions, coherence to your wedding theme, and maximum enjoyment of your guests when deciding. Here are 4 reception choices (with pros and cons!) to help you decide.
