One of the most interesting things about planning a wedding is having to learn about all the details associated with decorations and etiquette that you never even knew existed. When you host your celebration at a premiere wedding venue like Venus de Milo, you can count on the staff to help with a lot of these tasks. However, you can always choose to create your own unique place settings to reflect the theme that you have chosen for your special day. Everything from napkins to plates, silverware to glassware, centerpieces to favors, and table linens to chargers, can be customized to suit your own particular needs. You can even add place cards, table games or anything else that you desire to include.
What to Expect at Venus de Milo
When you host your wedding reception in our banquet rooms in Swansea, you can expect to get a whole lot of value for your investment. All of our round tables are capable of seating up to ten guests. We have a wide assortment of linen napkins and table covers in your choice of in-stock colors, which can include: white, gold, red, light blue, dark blue, peach, pink, teal, burgundy, dark green, lilac, red, and black. We do have centerpieces available if you do not want to create your own and a special option is available for a head table or sweetheart table if desired.
Additional options can be added, including fanned napkins, special linens, chair covers, covers that feature bow accents, lighted trees, silver or gold charger plates, aisle runners, wedding arches, uplighting, and even room decorations. While some couples decide to do all of the decorations themselves, there are many who choose to have our on-site event coordinator and staff take care of all those details for them. It is an ideal option for couples who are pressed for time or have a lot of other things that they need to handle themselves.
