A wedding reception is the party that is held after a wedding ceremony. These parties have become very important parts to any wedding. They allow members of each family to get together and converse with one another.
To make your wedding even more memorable you should plan a good wedding reception. The most important thing to have for any reception is to have the right kind of atmosphere. Get some nice round tables and position them equally around a large room. This will allow each guest to be seated equally from each other and allow them to walk around and greet other guests without too much of a hassle.
When seating the bride, groom, and their families you can use raised square tables that allow them to take an "honor position." It is after all their big day and they should be remembered in it. This also allows anyone who wants to greet them to be able to line past them, shake hands, and give congratulations.
You should also consider having some food available in your reception. Having a well catered meal and a nice serving of drinks, alcoholic and nonalcoholic will make everyone happy. If you don't want to go with a full meal you should at least considerer serving some hors d'oeuvres.
Another thing that should be considered is music. This helps lighten the mood and gives people something to concentrate on when not in conversation. Good music can help set the theme of the whole night.
Lastly a fun and exciting thing to do is to get pictures and videos of the bride and grooms life and put them together in a video. This allows guests to get a glimpse into the former lives of the bride and groom. It also allows the couple to see what they were and to make their new lives something better, together.
Whatever you decide to do when planning a reception always make sure the bride and groom approves the designs. It is their big day and things should go according to what they want.
