We prepare special menus. We prepare entrees to order. We’re respectful and attentive to seniors – and likewise to every child in the room. We do everything we can to make every guest feel relaxed, comfortable and important. But the larger question remains: “What are the expectations of guests at a wedding?” It really depends upon you, the brides and grooms, because you set the tone that allows your guests to have fun. For when your guests have fun, your wedding will be transformed from an event to a celebration.
After all, the occasion is about people coming together and the sentiment should extend to your guests, who often bring the wedding to life. Not just for themselves, but for the entire wedding party.
Located in Philly’s vibrant Northern Liberties, Tendenza is a sleek and chic contemporary space inspired by the cutting industrial style of New York lofts. When you want your wedding to make a unique statement, nothing else in the city comes close.
