When you plan a wedding, you not only have to plan the ceremony, but you also have to plan the reception. There’s no doubt that planning a wedding is stressful, especially when you want to ensure that everyone has a good time. In part one of this series, we gave you a few ideas that will help make your wedding reception more fun. As we continue with part two, we will provide you with even more creative ideas.
Put Thought Into Your Seating Arrangement
If you want your guests to have a good time at your wedding reception, the seating chart is a great place to start. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed with the power of choosing where people sit at your reception, and you may even consider using that power to play matchmaker, but it’s a better idea to sit your guests with people who they know and will get along with. As much as you may want to pair your best friend with your cousin because you know that they will hit it off, you have to keep in mind that things can get awkward if your matchmaking doesn’t go according to plan. Instead, take the time to introduce friends and family member who you feel need to meet.
On the other hand, some couples may take the task of creating the seating chart and decide to seat people with strangers. The idea of forcing people to make friends and intermingle may sound good in theory, but ideally, people will have more fun if they are seated with their friends, and they have the chance to celebrate you and your new spouse.
Play Music Everyone Can Dance To
Deciding on what music to play is one of the hardest parts of planning a wedding. After all, you want to make sure that everyone has a great time and hits the dance floor, but you also don’t want to be stuck on one genre of music the entire night. As you begin planning the music, think about who you have invited to your wedding. Will there be a lot of young people who want more modern dance music? Have you invited a lot of your older family members? When planning the music, you need to create a balance of songs that will appeal to the younger crowd, and the older crowd, as well as some songs that will appeal to both.
Offer Wedding Cake To-Go Boxes
If you choose to offer a three-tier cake at your wedding, you may find yourself with a lot of leftovers. Three tiers is a lot of cake, even if you plan on inviting a lot of people to your wedding. Take into consideration the number of people who may not want cake, or may not enjoy the type of cake that you chose for your wedding. You can’t cater to everyone, and that may result in numerous pieces of cake left behind. Instead of letting all of that delicious cake go to waste, or filling your freezer with enough wedding cake to last years, why not offer it to your guests in tasteful to-go boxes? Not only will this help you eliminate any unwanted leftovers, but your guests will also be able to extend the experience with delicious cake!
Create a Fun Alternative to a Guest Book
There’s no doubt that you want to remember who attended your wedding, and traditionally, the couple will provide the guests with a guest book so that they can sign in and leave a heartfelt message. However, if you want to make your wedding unique, you can offer your guests with a fun, alternative way of signing in! Instead of filling out a book, you can have your guests fill out a message on a puzzle piece that you will put together. Another idea is to have your friends and family fill out slips of paper with advice or words of encouragement that you can place in a book or a jar and look at for years to come.
