Unique reception site


Courtesy of the Penn Museum

A destination for 150 guests seems a little impractical given the current economic situation. Instead of jetting off to the islands, transport your guests across the globe by holding your reception in one of the Penn Museum's galleries. My favorite is the Lower Egypt gallery—modeled after a royal Egyptian palace, this space features a 12-ton sphinx and hieroglyphics. Check out the other galleries online at Museum.UPenn.edu. —Allison Bean, Editorial Assistant, Brides Philadelphia
