How to Throw A Reception All Your Guests Will Love

When it comes time to plan your wedding, there are so many details to think about. From the centerpieces to the chair arrangements and beyond—the minutiae can get overwhelming. The thing about a lot of these details, though, is that they don’t really matter.

Nobody will know if the florists brought blue flowers that are just a little too dark, for example. If you’re like most people, you probably spend more time worrying about the significant aspects of your wedding—namely the ceremony itself and the reception.

The reception is a particularly big one for most couples. You want to plan a great party. You want your guests to have fun and dance. You want the party to be one for the books. But how do you guarantee that?

Here’s what you need to know.

3 Tips for Planning an Unforgettable Wedding Reception

The key to an epic wedding reception is pretty simple: it’s got to reflect the couple and release the idea of perfection. The best receptions are the ones that feel free, fun, and easy. They’re planned well, yes, but they’re not overworked or too stringent. Here are a few tips for creating a reception like this for yourself:

1. Let Your Personality Shine

This is your wedding! Why not have some fun with your party? No matter what your style is, be sure your reception reflects it. Whether that means throwing a beautiful outdoors bash or having an all-out ballroom event, your reception should bring together the music, settings, and people you love.

2. Make Sure There’s Enough Food

Rarely will a reception venue let you get away with anything short of a plentiful amount of food. That’s because dancing is great for working up an appetite! For those who don’t go with the full dessert hour, choosing something like a s'mores station or a Walter’s truck parked outside is a nice extra. If you’re having a late party, your guests will more than likely appreciate it. 

3. Hire Professionals

Even the most laid-back reception involves lots of details. Because of this, the key to a truly unforgettable wedding is to hire professional vendors and let them do their job. When it comes to a reception, for example, a great caterer and DJ will help create an unforgettable night. This happens with clear communication and a desire to go above and beyond. 


Everyone remembers the party, so why cut corners? Bring in the pros and let them bring your vision to life.
