Professional Caterers Can Add a Distinctive Flair to Your Outdoor Summer Wedding
Wedding Catering Services That Add a Distinctive Flair to Outdoor Receptions
One of the many distinguishing aspects to summertime weather in Toronto and the GTA is its compatibility with outdoor weddings. While many couples have often preferred the summer months for their nuptials, more and more marriage ceremonies and receptions are being held in such non-traditional settings as private backyards, conservation areas, heritage estates, and cottage properties.
Summer is short enough in Toronto, so why not spend as much time as possible outside? And, as wedding receptions are concerned, the warmer temperatures and longer daylight hours of Toronto summers provide the idyllic backdrop for a comfortable, enjoyable, and memorable celebration.
Another unique aspect to the outdoor wedding season is the availability of a wider range of possibilities with respect to:
- Menu selections
- Meal service options
- Colour scheme/décor
- Reception style/set-up
- Entertainment alternatives
