SASKATOONEXPRESS - January 28-February 3, 2019 - Page 18 (Continued from page 16) a versatile space that can be easily transformed with little effort. It also offers the most amazing views in Saskatoon from every single area of rentable and public spaces. Q: How does Remai Modern lend itself to different wedding styles? A: The Riverview Room at Remai Modern is a blank palette that can be transformed to suit any style of wedding. Many people consider the building and the space itself to stand out enough on its own that a lot of additional décor isn’t necessary to dress up the event space and match the vision of their wedding. Q: How would you describe Remai Modern’s food and beverage packages? A: Our packages can be customized and are diverse. We work closely with the newlyweds-to-be to ensure that every guest attending the event is taken care of. Q: What advice would you offer to a couple designing their dream wedding menu? A: Make sure you do your research on all aspects of the day, but do not overwhelm yourself. It is easy to get thrown off track from your vision with all the inspiring wedding imagery around us and online. But once you have chosen a style for your wedding, make sure you stick with it. Q: What will be your favourite wedding food and drink trend of 2019? A: The cocktail hour is becoming a more prominent part of the event. Traditionally the cocktail hour was a waiting period between the ceremony and dinner, but many couples are choosing to offer a more customized experience using this time. They may not offer a full-service bar, but instead offer passed signature cocktails and Prosecco with canapés. Additionally, less traditional dinners may be replaced with interactive food stations, which allows guests to mix and mingle during dinner. TA012825 Tammy
