Tips and Trends from Chauncey's Catering Expert, Cathy Geer


Cathy Geer, Catering Manager of the Chauncey Hotel & CC, highly recommends the following tips to pull off the wedding of your dreams: Hire and experienced wedding planner

Get referrals for venue, flowers, music, caterers, wedding cake

Have activities for the Groom and groomsmen day of wedding to keep them busy while the bride is getting ready

When booking a venue, think about a location that is either a hotel or is near a hotel..give options to guests with 3 price points. Breathe and enjoy the experience..keep it light and fun!


Daytime Rustic Weddings ending early enough to catch your flight for your honeymoon or for guests to drive home for those that don't want to spend additional money to stay overnight

Childhood favorite foods with a grownup twist, such as Grilled Gruyere Cheese Triangles with a Tomato Bisque Shooter

Progressive Weddings at the same location - moving about from Ceremony in the Gazebo to Cocktail Hour under the Tented Pavilion followed by an intimate dinner in the Dining Room ending with the Dance Party in a altogether separate space to allow for each component to stand on its own, allowing the guests to choose they want to participate in dancing and often loud music or mingle with guests in a more serene environment.

Flashy is really in this year..the glitzier the better

Bands are in, bubbles are out!

DJ's will always offer a great value, and usually work with the bride and groom to play their party music is the standard. Jazz trios for ceremony or cocktail hour are always a nice touch

The Reveal! The day of the groom first laying eyes on his beloved as she walks down the aisle are a thing of the past..the Reveal happens before the ceremony, still capturing that first look but in a more private setting.
