Wedding reception themes are not a new novelty.  However, have you ever considered that you could utilize the area/location of your wedding reception as a part of your theme?  Incorporating a taste of the local/regional/state flare into your wedding reception is a contemporary way to add some often unexpected pizzazz!  What is your city, state or region known for?  Tying these unique characteristics into your wedding reception venue space and menu can be a pleasant way to surprise and intrigue your guests, while also making your reception unique.  Whether it is a certain color palette, architectural look, flowers or landscape, activity/event, or foods you would like to integrate….all will have an undeniable impact on the event itself and each individual guest.  I love this idea because it is a great way to showcase your personality as well as educate your guests about your hometown!  Falls Park, the beautiful and vast fields/prairies of South Dakota and the heritage/history of our region are all possibilities that could be built into your event.  Here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center, our talented award-winning chefs have put together some distinctive menu options that are perfect for a couple who want to achieve something like this through the food served at their wedding reception.  An example of a buffet that is as interesting as it is scrumptious is our “Taste of Dakota”.  This buffet includes items such as:  rustic wheat berry salad, harvest vegetable salad, braised bison delicately glazed with bourbon, broiled walleye with chardonnay butter, and exotic pheasant cacciatore.  Other items that we feature that definitely showcase the flavor of South Dakota and are always crowd pleasers include tasty buffalo slider burgers and our marvelous pheasant chowder.  Please give me a call if you want to explore these ideas or other ways to give your wedding reception a true touch of South Dakota!
