17 Oct Getting Your Reception One to Remember!
When people gather for a wedding, the whole point is to congratulate two individuals that have found happiness together and wish them well. Maybe you’re the bride at the drawing board, planning all the details, and you’d like to make it something that your guests will never forget.
When it goes to preparing an amazing party, the sky’s the limit as for the fun things you could do, and it’s super easy to use tons of ideas by browsing Pinterest or picking the brain of your wedding planner who does events like this continuously. However, for today, as you’re sitting here checking this article, here are a few tips that we thought of to throw a wedding party your friends will walk away talking about.
For beginners, you can inject some perks. If your shindig is at the country club, having valet parking is an exciting way to make your guests feel swanky immediately after they arrive. Or, if it’s up a canyon with single-lane traffic going up and down, think about employing us to attend to the transportation. Motorcoaches are a great way to shuttle people and will make for less road blockage, too. Making ease of transportation for everyone included is always a plus.
Have a program. It’s a way to make it more personal and allow others to share in the experience. Experiences like these are what make us human, and it’s lovely to celebrate these simple, beautiful moments.
Music and dancing. There’s nothing like an amazing DJ and some good tunes making for a great party. This is an important one, so see to it you do your homework. Speak to people to get some good word-of-mouth references, and get online to see who consistently has great reviews. Make sure to communicate that to your DJ if you are going for a specific theme. Otherwise, if you get a good one, you should be in safe hands. Getting someone that is great and experienced at what they do is a game changer, so choose wisely.
A further suggestion? Up the fun. That’s appropriate … come up with some methods to start up the good times. What about providing a photo booth? You know how people have those little strips of sepia photographs taped on their fridges? Maybe it’s them with their kids, their best buddy, or from an exciting night out with their significant other. The one thread that seems to be constant is that these photos are tending to fun: people laughing, goofing off, and making funny faces. You see them and feel love. … why not bring some of that love to the reception and let your friends take home photos that’ll go on their fridge?
Sweet treats. Okay, receptions vary. Sometimes people serve desserts, and other times it’s a full course dinner. Get some cute paper bags that recall older days (think old time general stores) and watch the kids’ eyes grow huge when they realize they can choose whatever treat they want.
Last but not the least, come up with a thoughtful memento that your guests can take home. Whether it’s a small box of fancy chocolate from a local hotspot, a small bouquet of flowers or complimentary drinks, this is a wonderful way to thank your visitors for coming and let them realize you love them. There aren’t many days like this one for celebrating, so you absolutely want to make it something lovely to consider!
