Wedding Planning and Guest List
When planning a wedding reception, one of the first things you need to think about is your guest list. Who you invite will often times determine where you decide to hold your reception. The amount of people you plan to attend your event will be the number one factor in the size of facility you choose, but there are a few other things you’ll also want to think about. First of all, is the facility easily accessible to you and your guests? Some places are far away, outside of town, or downright difficult to find. Other facilities are only open at certain times and that can make the planning process a difficult one for you. Another thing to think about is the age of your guests—is the building suitable for children or handicap accessible for anyone who might require a wheelchair or other assistance? Some people have a hard time deciding whether or not to invite children to their reception and often times it is because of where the reception takes place. At the Sioux Falls Convention Center, we can accommodate any type of group and we even can create areas designed specifically for kids! We have meeting rooms that have actually been utilized as a day care room during a reception. There were “babysitters” and toys and games for the children to play. We can even create a room to be set up as a movie theatre to project films and have popcorn and candy to keep the kids occupied! Inside the reception room itself can also be a kid’s corner. We can do coloring areas and have books and puzzles, small toys and even small “jungle gym” play sets can be brought in for the smaller children. Bringing in things like hula-hoops and glow sticks is a very common thing to help entertain them during the dance as well! For dinner, we can do a wide variety of plated kid’s meals, but the most popular option is our kid’s buffet. This is set up so it is lower to the ground and it has all the classic children’s favorites such as chicken strips, waffle fries, mini corn dogs and mac & cheese! So no matter what the age of your guest, the Sioux Falls Convention Center can accommodate your needs!
