Wedding Evening Receptions in Great Yarmouth
With the moon rising over a North Sea horizon, round your big day off in style.
If you're planning an evening wedding reception only, Imperial Hotel would love to host your evening celebration.
The Sandown Suite and it's private bar can comfortably fit up to 150 guests for an evening reception. For total ease, we can create a mouth-watering buffet and arrange a DJ or live band for you.
If you're inviting a minimum of 60 guests for an evening buffet, room hire is included. Buffet menus start from £15.50 per person and include hot and cold dishes. A sit-down buffet menu is also an option or if you'd like to plan your own buffet menu, please don't hesitate to contact us.
The Sandown Suite - Evening Reception only
If you are getting married in church or civilly partnered at a Registry Office and are looking for somewhere to host a party, the Sandown Suite is the perfect place to have your evening wedding reception.
For a minimum of 60 guests, we have a selection of buffet menus to choose from, all fully inclusive of room hire.
The Sandown Suite ballroom has its own private entrance off the hotel car park, it's own toilet facilities near the entrance, a large bar, and a spacious dance floor with climate control, although we're afraid to say that this facility will not make your guest's dance moves any the cooler!
You will have exclusive use of the Sandown Suite for your evening reception, with room for up to 150 guests. Chairs and tables can be arranged around the edge of the dance floor and in the bar area, so your friends and family can sit back and relax, or strut their stuff.
A disco for up to 4 hours can be arranged, from £330. Or if you'd rather have a live band to play, we have plenty of contacts. A ceilidh is often fun at a wedding, but so are flamenco lessons and line dancing sessions before the disco takes over. It's your day, and up to you what musical entertainment you'd like.
Plase have a look at our menu options below. But if nothing on the buffet menus we suggest takes your fancy, please don't hesitate to contact us on 01493 842000. We are here to make sure you have an evening reception to remember, with many happy memories for years to come.
Evening receptions as part of the Imperial Wedding Package
If you've already enjoyed a sit-down wedding breakfast in the hotel, the Sandown Suite is quickly transformed into a fun evening reception venue. The ballroom's dance floor is perfect for the happy couple's first dance and for your Dad to show off his best Dad dancing.
There's plenty of space around the edges for chairs and tables for your Gran to take a seat and rest her feet. And the two adjoining bars ensure that there's a steady flow of drinks and quieter areas for Auntie Helen to catch 40 winks.
Evening reception room hire is included with all wedding packages.
Pearl and Platinum wedding packages also include a disco with buffet for up to 70 or 80 guests. And extra guests can be invited to an evening reception up to a maximum of 150 people, charges vary depending on the wedding package you have chosen. Buffet menus also vary, and can be served in the Sandown Suite or in one of the adjoining rooms, depending on availability.
If your guests are staying at the hotel, there's plenty of time for them to slip upstairs and refreshen up after the formal sit-down dinner, or pop out for a breath of fresh air on the promenade before the evening's entertainment begins. We offer special rates for guests who wish to stay over, please ask for more details.
All you need to do is talk to us about how you want to play your evening reception, and we'll do our best to make your wishes come true.
