Another Insider Tip!

Time for another installment of "insider tips" from owner and operator of JP Event Design - Judy Moore!

• Have your reception at a RESTAURANT! Yes, I said a restaurant. As a former director of events for one of Philadelphia’s premier restaurants, I know firsthand how much money brides can save by having their reception at a restaurant. Restaurants are one stop shops – the venue, food, and beverage is all included in one price – no hidden rental fees, bartender fees, catering fees. Etc. Usually restaurant chef’s can accommodate any menu, not just the menu they serve on a regular basis. Also, there are SO many unique restaurants in Philadelphia – the list is almost endless, from tropical themed, upscale, modern, classic, urban, chic, you can find a Philadelphia restaurant that will totally reflect your style. Not to mention, how much you will save on décor! Restaurants spend tons of money on decor – you will barely have to do a thing – the ambiance, lighting, and style are already built in. My favorite new restaurant in Philly is Union Trust – a former US Mint building converted into a stunning restaurant complete with original century old architecture completely restored – its is gorgeous – a perfect choice for a reception or rehearsal dinner. Another favorite – MELT in Center Valley, PA.

See photos and get inspiration from Lisa & Rob's wedding that took place at Marsha Brown's Restaurant in New Hope, PA!
