Tips For Maintaining A Lively Reception

With the right time and effort – and the right venue – you can create a magical wedding ceremony for yourself and your partner. The reception, like the ceremony, is guided by many traditional moments (though you can choose to pass on the ones you feel less comfortable including). However, there are some key differences between the two. One of the biggest differences is that your guests will be more active throughout the reception, and you will have to think more about how you can sustain a festive atmosphere. Texas Old Town can make this easier by providing ample venue spaces that give you the room you need to seat and serve guests, and to provide them entertainment with music and space for dancing.

How Can I Make Sure My Guests Have Fun During The Reception?

As important as it is to serve the right food and drinks, and to make the most of the traditions you want to celebrate, you should also think about how you can provide an evening that encourages people to relax and have fun. No matter how formal your overall event will be, the reception will be a more relaxed affair than the ceremony. One thing you can do to make this time more fun is to space out different traditional moments. These spaces give people the opportunity to chat with seatmates, grab drinks, and catch up with the people they know. You can also keep them captivated with music and dancing, two popular reception staples!

A Lively Dance Floor Can Keep Your Guests’ Spirits High

We provide four venue spaces to choose from when you plan your wedding with us. This means you can find a setting where guests have more than enough room to gather on the dance floor and enjoy your night! The right space for dancing is important, but you should also have the right music to sustain your ideal atmosphere. A professional wedding DJ or live band can do a good job reading the energy of the room, so they can change up their selections and selectively pace faster and slower hits to avoid wearing out your guests.

Keeping Your Youngest Guests Entertained (And Occupied)

If you plan on welcoming kids to your wedding, you may want to think of how you can keep them entertained – and occupied – for your reception. For younger kids especially, a wedding celebration can feel long, and it can offer little that appeals to them. One thing you can do to help is create a table designated for kids and stock it with games, toys, and other items.
