Wedding Day Reception Ideas

Wedding receptions are a perfect opportunity to spend quality time (and to make some special memories) with all of the family and friends of the bride and groom. It is a great place to showcase the happy newlyweds and have some fun after the ceremony and all the craziness and stress that comes along with the entire wedding planning process. The crucial thing to scoring a fabulous wedding celebration is knowing what’s supposed to happen when.
Here are some fantastic wedding reception ideas and inspirational photos to pull together a party no guest will forget.

  • Give a custom flourish to all your printed material with your own logo—an image that’s meaningful to you and your spouse, like a hobby or place.
  • Collect photos of family and friends (easier with small weddings/reception), and place them in frames with each guest’s table assignment.
  • Traditional guest books often end up stashed in a closet; instead, choose a coffee-table book covering a subject you love and that you’ll want to display at home; guests can write on the photos or in the margins.
  • Depending on your style, tie the napkins with satin ribbons, metallic cording, braided leather laces, even pieces of twine.
  • Walk down the aisle to a song (with a slow tempo) that was meaningful when you were dating.
  • A cake topper can make a personal statement.
  • Hang a series of framed photos of both of you at the reception.
  • Light the way with a custom gobo—a metal plate stamped with a decorative design, then attached to a spotlight that projects the image on a dance floor or wall.
  • Place a blank card and pen at each place setting, and ask guests to write a favorite memory of you and/or the groom. Later, bind the notes into a scrapbook.
  • Match the color of your jewelry to his tie and cuff links.
