As much as your guests may look forward to seeing you walk down the aisle, your wedding reception is certainly important. This is your chance to interact with your guests, receive congratulations and well-wishes, and debut with your partner as an officially married couple! Whether you want to hold a more formal, elegant ceremony, or a looser, more fun event, this can be a great time for everyone. With some smart planning, you can provide a reception experience that stands out to your guests. Many people have found success by including alternatives to traditional reception trappings, or with exciting additions, like photo booths, which have grown in popularity. How you approach the reception preparation is up to you – while some couples prefer to maintain a DIY wedding vibe, you can certainly count on professional support to help with your festivities.
1. Dessert Alternatives
Tiered wedding cakes may be one of the most recognizable aspects of a wedding reception, but you should not feel confined to cake when it comes to dessert choices. A collection of pastries or cupcakes can be fun, especially in a casual setting, as guests can move about freely while they enjoy dessert. Of course, if you want something that has more of a visual impact, you could always add a chocolate fountain to your dessert spread.
2. A Photo Booth
It is easy to see how photo booths have become popular at wedding receptions – you give your guests a space to take a fun picture, and they go home with a great memento from your event. You can go with something simple, like a back drop and some props, or you can rent a classic photo booth that provides a strip of pictures.
3. Personalized Wedding Favors
Personalized wedding favors can show gratitude to your guests, and they can serve as terrific keepsakes. This token of gratitude can even tie into your event – for instance, you can give personalized fans in advance of your outdoor ceremony.
