Reception inspiration from the Container Bar

I am pretty sure I have found the look and feel we want to have for the reception. Holding the wedding in Apollo Bay means that there is an excellent chance that it will rain. We have done our best to mitigate against this by holding the wedding at the beginning of March, but there is always that possibility. I didn’t like the idea of having a tent, as it encloses the space and you can’t see the stars, but I think that we will have to have one on the front lawn in case of rain. This morning I stumbled upon (via West Aussie Wedding) this reception held on a property at Yallingup, West Australia. This set up is perfect! The space invites you in and gives you an instant relaxed feel, yet it is also wedding fancy. I wasn’t quite sure how to decorate the tent since we aren’t having a sit down dinner. If we create something like this, it means people can have the option to sit down if they want, but there’s also plenty of room for dancing and socialising. This space has a certain Container Bar feel - I like it!

  1. It is a beautiful vibe they created isnt it.
    I think if you have a tent with open sides it woudl provide enough shelter, without taking away from your 'beachy' vibe.
    Lounge bar style receptions are awesome, we are hoping to achieve a similar effect for our wedding.
    Good luck with your planning
