10 Tips To Creating An Memorable Wedding Reception
The most memorable wedding reception is seldom the most expensive, the most elaborate, or the most time consuming, but more likely involves the most forethought and planning. Our experts have a talent for finding what matters most and including with that the most significant memory making event for each couple.
- Plan an Eventful Wedding – oh the excitement of a wedding that recognizes grandparents, parents, and other life long relationships! What about planning your amazing great day on the anniversary of a grandparent? Invite the Grandparents to stand at the head table with the Bride and Groom, and celebrate their day with era themed music and dances.
- Combine a Holiday Celebration – Christmas will never be the same again, and nobody will ever forget your anniversary when you combine your day with a Holiday. And the decor? It’s all a flutter of the holiday, combined with wedding bells, lace, and white satin. What could be better? Can you define the holiday without your wedding party?
- Set a Theme to Celebrate – Seasonal or an era, themes can be a fun way to add memorable content and even a time-stamp to a wedding. Perhaps, the era of the Bride and Groom’s birth?
- Black Tie & Masquerade – pull all your plans together for a masquerade ball, and present the most mysterious with a fun prize for their costume. One of my favorite blends this formal event with ‘famous couples’ and combines the winning musical selections with a magical theme of great music.
- Casual Afternoon Tea – a quartet of stringed instruments performing as the sun dips low in the western skies might be a better choice for the most casual, yet memorable event. Entice the rain with some rainmaker tunes.
- Breakfast with Strollers – when the coffee is hot, the air offers a chill of early morning, and the musicians are strolling through the audience, what could be more memorable at your wedding reception than musicians playing the early hours?
- Big Band Era Music and Dancers – wedding attendance can be even more fun when everyone dances, but if your attendees aren’t dancers, perhaps dancers on the stage can give them a few tips and ideas. Inspiring a line dance, or group dance might be a good option, if you want more action among guests, but any big band era music dances can be fun for multiple age groups.
- Cover Band Entertainment – current tunes, selected for the many hours of memories stirred with words, music, and hours of together time, making life better before, during, and after the wedding. A selection of popular tune might inspire dancing feet.
- Specialty Show Stoppers – showcase a favorite singer, the look-a-like tribute artist sends out memory making show tunes from talented featured singers.
- Memory Making Moments – whether your music is relevant or classic, the tunes you showcase at your wedding will be the most remembered music of your life. I still know every single word to ‘The Rose’ and ‘Ever Green’ even 35 years after the fact…
