Fantastic Ideas For Making Your Wedding Reception Amazing

When it comes to planning your wedding, there is a lot to think about. From finding the perfect dress to choosing the best type of wedding cake, there are a lot of things that you need to get organized.

One of the most important things you need to do is plan your wedding reception. While your ceremony is also important, your reception goes on for longer, and so, needs more thought. Ideally, you want to plan a wedding reception that has elements of romance and gives everyone the chance to let loose and have fun.

To help you make your wedding reception amazing, here are a few handy tips:


Choose your decorations carefully
Once you have chosen your reception venue, the next step is to start thinking about your wedding decorations. Ideally, the decorations you choose should tie in with your wedding theme and color palette. For decoration inspiration, like ideas for wedding venue dressing, have a look at Pinterest. You could also ask your friends and relatives what type of decorations they had at their own weddings to get some ideas.

Hire fantastic entertainment
A big part of your wedding reception is the entertainment that you choose. If the entertainment is boring, it could ruin the whole celebration. That’s why it is so important that you take your time to come up with the perfect entertainment idea.

The best form of entertainment for a wedding reception is a live band. However, hiring a live band for the whole night can be expensive, so many couples opt for a DJ instead. Another great idea is to hire a live band for a couple of hours and then have a DJ for the rest of the evening, saving you money.


If you have children attending your wedding, it’s also a good idea to consider what entertainment you want to get for them. You could choose to hire a children’s entertainer, like a clown or magician, or you could put on some activities of your own. Whatever you choose to do is up to you, just make sure that you have activities to keep any children occupied.

Think carefully about the food

When it comes to planning an amazing wedding reception, one of the most difficult things to organize is the food. When it comes to choosing the food for your wedding reception, there are so many things that you have to consider.

The first thing you need to consider is the type of meal you want, a traditional sit-down meal or a buffet-style meal. There are pros and cons to both ideas; sit-down meals are more expensive. However, sit-down meals are more elegant than buffets. For allergies, buffets are not good as there is a higher risk of cross-contamination, whereas sit-down meals are safer.

There are so many things to think about when it comes to planning your wedding reception, that it can all get a bit overwhelming. The key is to tackle each issue separately so that you don’t get too overwhelmed.
