Every bride wants a fairytale wedding. Therefore, this article is to try and minimize problems that may occur during a wedding reception. Listed below are more common mistakes made by brides and grooms during your wedding reception. We will tell you what to do!
Donít leave early. Your guests came from near and far to see you on your wedding day. Not staying whole time of reception would be a slap in face. This will be only time most of your family and friends will be able to see you as you will be very busy with last minute preparations days leading up to wedding.
Setup all tables. Your wedding vendors will need to know where to set-up. Be sure there is a table for wedding cake, music entertainment, catered food, sign-in near entrance, gift table, tables and chairs for all your guests to eat and any other tables you may have planned for specialty items.
Preplan with your vendors a day or two before wedding. Be sure all your wedding vendors know exactly what you want. Clarify times and location so you donít need to worry about them.
Donít arrive late to reception. It is customary that guests do not start eating until bride and groom start food line. Be sure to get as many of your pictures taken BEFORE wedding. There are many ways to accomplish this. One is to have entire brideís family pictures taken. Then, have bride return to dressing room. Next, take pictures of groom and his family as guests can see groom before wedding. This way you will not compromise groom seeing bride before wedding. Therefore, all that is left after ceremony are pictures of happy couple.
Donít seat young at heart directly in front of music entertainment. Older generations are at a wedding typically to socialize with their family and friends. If they cannot hear each other talk, an unhappy situation may occur. So, if by choice, seat young at heart near wedding party but away from entertainerís speakers.
