Guests will begin to arrive at The Permanent at 5:30PM, and will be greeted by our staff who will be tray passing a trio of Specialty Cocktails. 4 Servers will greet guests at the door, and they will offer cocktails and mineral water, and also advise guests that the bar is open, and for anyone wishing to have something other than a cocktail, then they can make their way to the bar. Cocktails will include Elderflower Tonic (gin, St. Germain, tonic), Negroni (gin, Campari, sweet vermouth, orange peel), Cucumber Fizz (vodka, lime juice, tonic water and cucumber). Mineral water will also be offered.
Once everyone has a drink in hand, Savoury City staff will begin tray passing a lovely selection of 4 warm and room temperature hors d’oeuvres. Guests will be able to chat and mingle for an hour or so, until the bride and groom arrive and make their entrance at approximately 6:55PM.
Guests will be asked to be seated between 6:30PM and 6:45PM, and wine will be offered as everyone takes their seats. Water and wine service will continue throughout the evening. Coco and Dylan will have long tables laid out for their guests, and crisp white linens will drape the banquet tables. The look will be clean and fresh, with minimal florals.
Once the bride and groom have made their entrance and everyone is seated, an introductory speech will take place, followed immediately by a Prosecco toast.
A festive 3-course family-style dinner will begin at approximately 7:10PM, followed by dessert, coffee and tea. At 8:50PM, guests will be invited to make their way upstairs to the second floor for the cake cutting. Coco and Dylan will also give their Thank You speech, followed by the bouquet toss. At this time, Savoury City will strike 2 center rows of tables to make way for the dancing. Some chairs will be scattered around the room for casual seating. A late night snack will be put out a little later in the evening – sometime between 10:45PM and 11:30PM.
Last call will take place at 12:30AM, and then guests will depart by 1:00AM. Savoury City staff will continue cleaning, organizing the rentals for pickup, and then depart.
Happy celebrating, and congratulations again Coco and Dylan!
