A wedding reception is a celebration of your new marriage and a way to thank all of your guests for being there with you on your special day. So it's understandable if you want to plan a magnificent wedding reception that will keep your guests talking for years to come. Try these creative ideas to take your wedding reception from great and memorable to amazing and unforgettable.
Include an Ice Bar
Adding ice sculptures to your bar takes it to the next level. But to really make an impression on your guests, you should consider having a bar that's complete with ice luges. An ice luge is a long piece of ice with a channel carved into it. The bartender pours drinks down the ice luge to chill them.
Rent a Photo Booth and Props
Photo booths are great additions to wedding receptions because they serve a dual purpose. Your guests will be entertained taking pictures with various props, which they can take home with them to remember the event, and you can set your photo booth so that it prints duplicates of all of the pictures taken during your wedding reception. This way, you have copies of all of the pictures taken for your wedding scrapbook. For more information, contact a company like Royal Entertainment.
Hold a Themed Wedding Reception
Consider planning your wedding reception around a fun theme instead of planning a more traditional affair. It's important that the theme you choose for your reception is something that you and your fiance are both passionate about. Here are some things you could choose to create your wedding reception theme around:
- Your favorite romantic movie
- An inspiring book
- Your favorite sports team
- Your favorite children's game or story
If you choose to hold a themed reception, you might want to consider holding it in a nontraditional location. For example, if your wedding reception will be planned around you and your fiance's favorite football team, consider contacting the stadium to see if they offer event rental space. You might be able to hold your reception, and even get married, at the team's stadium. The more creative you are with your theme, the more your guests will embrace and love it.
Planning an unforgettable wedding reception isn't as difficult as you may think. However, you will need to pay close attention to all of the little details of your event, so there's a good chance it will take you a bit more time. Take your time when planning, and before you know it, you'll have a wedding reception planned that your guests will never forget.
