Making Plans To Host A Lively Wedding Reception

Your wedding reception is the first party you and your partner attend as a couple, so of course you want to make sure it offers a good time for all of your guests! While there are some traditional moments that can take place during this event, like the couples’ the first dance, the bouquet toss, and the cutting of the cake. There will also be plenty of time where people can enjoy the food and drinks you have provided, and to mingle. While the festive energy of your wedding can encourage people to have fun during your reception, you can benefit by taking time to think about how the right details in your plan can keep spirits high.

Reception Entertainment Is About More Than Just Music (But Music Is Definitely Important)

You can count on a DJ, or a live band, to keep people engaged with music throughout your night. One benefit to having a professional overseeing the music selection means having someone who can read your room, and pick the right music for the right moments. With that said, you need more than music if you want to keep your reception fun. Adding other cool features, like a photo booth, can be a great option for your event, especially if you have guests who are less likely to hit the dance floor.

Should I Make Plans For The Time Between My Ceremony And Reception?

If you want your reception to be a success, think about how the event starts. If you have a break between your ceremony and reception, giving people something to do – and offering refreshments – can be important. Many couples will host an informal cocktail hour between events if they need to take photos after their ceremony. This gives your guests time to mingle, and the chance to pick up a drink, which can keep everyone in the mood to celebrate until your reception begins.
