4 Tips for Creating the Ultimate Wedding Reception

As newlyweds, your wedding reception is the first opportunity to celebrate together – and with loved ones – as an officially married couple, and as such, you want it to be a memorable occasion. While nothing will make you forget the wonder of your wedding day, there is absolutely no reason why your wedding reception shouldn’t be equally as memorable, and with the following tips, you can create your very own unforgettable event:

Adorn the tables:

As guests will likely be spending a good amount of time at their tables, you should try to make their dining experience memorable by adorning the table with creative centerpieces, having fancy cutlery and using exquisite linen. If you have friends who create decorative items for dining, why not have them make some unique pieces for you? Or support a local business that makes creative décor for such occasions? Either way, your guests will definitely appreciate a table that is inspiring, interesting and pretty, and you might even be able to help your friend or a local business to sell some of their items in the future.

Make the drinks as important as the food:

Whether your guests are teetotal or enjoy indulging in an alcoholic beverage from time to time, a delicious and creative drink to help whet their appetites will always go down well. From mocktails, to cocktails, serve up some refreshing drinks with interesting flavor combinations to get your guests talking, and lubricate their throats in preparation for the party games and singing!

Strike a pose!

Photo booths have been a popular fixture at wedding and birthday celebrations for years now, and they are still as fun and sought after as ever. Make sure there are plenty of fun props for your guests to use when the curtain is drawn, and make time to sit in there with your new partner and create some crazy shots that will make you smile when you look back on them years down the line.

Fun and games:

Games and friendly celebrations have long been a tradition in Indian weddings and receptions, and there’s no reason why that still shouldn’t be the case today. Whether you choose to play some age old, tried and tested games, or have come up with some new ones, be sure to get everyone involved – young and old – and encourage fun and laughter among your guests. If you want to get your guests involved in the preparations beforehand, have them come up with some new games that you can try out; even if they don’t quite work, everyone will have fun trying!

To make your wedding reception a truly memorable one, try to keep one thing in mind: be as creative as possible. And if you’re not a creative thinker, find a friend or family member who is! After all, there’s no better way of making your guests feel a part of the celebration, than by having them help you create it!
