A wedding is believed to be one of the most important occasions in a person's life. In fact, if organized properly, a wedding becomes memorable not only for the wedding couple, but also to all who attend it. However, to do so, one has to take care of several tiny details.
Every wedding is unique and different, with the reception being the highlight of the wedding, which needs to be carefully handled. There are no definite rules and steps to conduct a reception. It's a time when people can use their creativity and make the event extra special.
The reception site or budget cannot be finalized, unless the approximate number of guests attending the reception is clear.
If the venue does not offer chairs, tables and other furniture, then make arrangements for those as well. Make a floor layout for the tables and seating area at the reception site.
If one does not want to go in for a second outfit, then the wedding gown designer can design a two or three-piece bridal gown. These bridal gowns comprise two or three parts, which when worn together appear like a one-piece gown, and when separated forms a wedding dress. So a grand bridal gown can be turned into a short dancing dress within minutes.
Many couples love their wedding receptions to be interactive, and choose to have games. The games responsibility can be given to a friend or relative who could take care of the same.
Commutation facilities for the guests, from the hotel to the wedding site and to the reception venue, needs to be kept in mind. The travel arrangements must be made, and a travel agency should be contacted for this purpose.
Final Guest List
Changes can be made to the rough guest list, and the final guest list can be prepared. The wedding invitations or save-the-date cards should be mailed to the guests well in advance.
However, if you are planning to make them, you need to consider how and when it will be done and who all will be helping.
Planning a reception is not only exciting for the couple, but also for their parents and close relatives. The entire wedding reception planning can be a joyful experience if done in a systematic manner. Maintaining a wedding reception checklist can simplify the reception requirements a great deal.
Once all the items on the checklist have been carried out, the bride, groom and parents can relax and enjoy the wedding day. Nevertheless, there's no perfect family and squabbles are bound to crop up. Just take it all in the stride!
