The exquisiteness of a wedding reception plays a great role in the success of a wedding ceremony. Choosing a perfect wedding reception is the first and critical decision you have to consider in planning your wedding.
This is where the guests are eager to have every bit of fun. The dance, merriment, meal and dance takes place in the reception. What is a wedding without its reception? To have a memorable wedding with a lasting impression in the minds of the guests, the following steps have to be taken.
- Create an effective Plan
Set a good date for your wedding and have a clear picture of how you want your big day to be like. Creating an effective plan requires setting down a budget. Wedding reception requires large expense. The projected number of guests must be kept in mind. Work with the venue to arrange seating in the best possible way. The room must not be over crowded and there must be ample spaces between the spaces and each guest.
- Determine the type of wedding reception
The type of wedding reception goes a long way in determining how you want your wedding to be. The Cocktail party or Appetizer only reception is trendy, informal and adds style to the wedding. The Buffet Dinner Wedding reception is most formal and expensive. It allows for the cutting of cake, bouquet tossing and dancing. Picnic is great for nature loving couples. Beach or yatch reception can be a lot of fun and it creates beautiful photos.
- Decorate the reception
Large flower displays creates an elegant decoration to your wedding reception. Get creative material for covering tables and draping from the ceiling. This would create a romantic atmosphere.
- There should be proper music in the air
One of the most memorable times on your wedding day is the first dance you share with your partner. The first dance is selected by the bride and groom, a song that portrays emotion and love. Having good music is a great way to making your wedding the most fantastic. Choose a professional entertainer to keep the crowd thrilled. A band or DJ will keep the dance floor filled up. If a wedding DJ cannot be afforded, then an MP3 player or iPod is also an option. Popular wedding songs that can arouse the guests’ spirit are such as All of Me by John Legend, Forever by Chris Brown and so on.
- There should be enough food and drinks!
The major part of your wedding budget goes towards the reception food. People attend receptions for the food, so you have to make your menu really tasty if you want plenty of guests. Hire a good caterer to make the best of meals and serve quality drinks that will make the guests satisfied. When planning for the amount of guests to serve, don’t forget about the vendors not on your guests list such as the videographers, photographer and DJ.
