Your wedding is the most important day of your life, and one that you will remember forever. For this reason, it is natural to want every facet of it to be perfect for both you and your guests. Here are some tips for making sure that your wedding reception is everything you want it to be, and that everyone has a great time.
Keep it simple
The people that will attend your reception will be your nearest and dearest. This means that there is no need for you to plan lots of events and activities to keep everyone amused, as just having all of these people together should be all you need. Make sure that there is music, food and a dance floor and your friends and family will make the magic happen!
Think carefully about the music
Wedding music has a reputation for being awful but it doesn’t have to be. Choose a great DJ who will be able to work out what is keeping people interested and won’t keep playing music that is leaving the dance floor empty. But you can be selfish too. If there is a band or type of music that you and your partner have bonded over, don’t be afraid to have this playing. It is your day, after all.
Let it go
After months of planning and stressing about your wedding and wedding reception, it can be hard to relax and enjoy it, as you are always thinking about what is happening next. At your wedding, it is not up to you to run the event. Trust the people you have hired and just enjoy your wedding day and being the centre of attention. If something goes wrong, it really doesn’t matter, as the point is to have a good time, celebrate your union, and spend time with your loved ones.
Although you want the wedding to be simple, you also want it to be memorable, so having a grand finale, such as fireworks or a band, will be a way to end the evening on a high. A grand finale will also let your guests know that the night is over and prompt them to leave so there is no awkward hinting to try to clear the venue.
