The Reception - Planning Basics A celebration
like no other, your wedding reception will literally be the
first party you throw as a married couple. And whether it's
a sophisticated champagne affair or an out-and-out hoedown,
you should have the time of your life. Consider Style. Match
the Reception to Your Style.
Choosing a Reception Location - As a power-planning
wedding team, one of the first things you'll choose is the
location of the reception. Whether you'll say your vows under
the same roof you'll cut your cake, or the two sites will
be across town from each other, there are a few critical qualities
to look for in any venue.
Planning the Food for the Reception - Food
is the fuel for your reception. It'll get guests mingling
and marveling, and it'll be remembered long after the event.
It's also a complicated little feature to plan. Read up on
the basic scoop on dining formats, food extras, and things
to think of. What Kind of Menu Suits Your Reception?
Beverage Choices for the Reception - The
beverages at your reception keep palates refreshed and tongues
moving. They might even inspire a few of the more timid souls
out onto the floor for the impromptu dance circle. We've got
the rundown on the choices that can get you the most bang
from your bubbly. Design a Signature Cocktail
Reception Music - It's the lifeblood of
a reception. Without it, conversation dries up, mingling halts,
and dancing is an impossibility (except, perhaps, for the
toddler set, who bring their own beat). When planning the
tunes for your party, consider three primary issues: style,
range, and delivery. What Kind of Music Suits Your Reception?
Wedding favors are a pleasant contradiction
- an extra that's actually indispensable. Whether they're
simple or elaborate, favors make a great way to thank guests,
add a personal touch to the celebration, or round out the
theme of your party. Find Memorable Favors.
Transportation to and from the Reception
- Fabulous transportation to and from the wedding site is
the emphatic punctuation of your special day. Your particular
mode of transportation will depend on your budget, your taste,
and your list of passengers.
