Most wedding reception ideas focus on the entertainment aspect. However, some of your wedding guests may not prefer dancing and that’s why it’s important to look for other ways to make them feel entertained. You can start off by creating a stunning and exciting atmosphere for your guests.
Here are some amazing, fun and romantic ways to spice up your wedding reception and get everyone in the mood.
Invest in custom lighting: Lighting is important at the reception venue because it sets the stage for romance. Custom lighting is among the hottest wedding trends this season. If possible, hire a lighting specialist who is responsible for setting up the site for your first dance.
Consider hues such as pinks, whites and silvers. There are certain colors that bring out a more sensual and romantic ambience. The perfect examples are pinks and whites. Let these colors dominate in your reception venue if you would like to create the romantic feel.
Candles: Candles can be used in outdoor wedding receptions too. You can have your décor specialist get tiny electric candles which will be suspended on the tree branches or other areas at the reception. You can use candles on the tables and to decorate the food.
Choose a romantic wedding venue: Vineyards and botanical gardens are beautiful and romantic places to have a wedding reception. Go for a venue which has natural backdrops and lush green gardens where your guests can roam in. The setting should be romantic with beautiful plantings, or if it’s an indoor venue, gorgeous chandeliers can set the mood right.
Place customized cards, with romantic details about the two of you, on each reception table. Guests will pass them around and enjoy reading your love story. Incorporate your wedding colors on the card design and a special message like how you met or your favorite thing to do as a couple.
Display wedding photos of family and friends at the reception: This is a nice way to show your friends and family how much you appreciate the love and encouragement they have shown you as a couple.
Play a song that is special to the two of you when walking down the aisle. If you want your wedding ceremony to be unique then forget about the top wedding songs and choose meaningful music that is particularly special to the two of you.
Create a video tribute: This is usually done by the groom where he describes how he meet and fell in love with you. He can include humor and fun pictures you took together just to express his emotions.
