Be the Perfect Host at your own Wedding Reception!

September 19, 2009

Wedding Receptions can be many different things to different people. Besides being a party to celebrate your wedding, they are gatherings of various groups of people (friends from school, work, neighbors, relatives) from all age groups who do not knoweach other (yet) and even more importantly, Family reunions. Relatives come from far and wide, many of whom have not seen each other for a long while. Most young couples have never had the responsibility of hosting such a gathering before and are not familiar with what this entails.

As the hosts of this grand celebration, it is your responsibility to make them comfortable, feel welcomed and make sure they have fun. As you make decisions pertaining to your reception, it is important to keep this in mind. Yes, it is YOUR day, but the party is being thrown for the people that you invited to be there!

From experience, I can tell you that family weddings become very important events to grandparents in particular, but this same consideration should be given to all age groups who will be in attendance. If you were throwing a party for 200 vegetarians would you feed them prime rib? Of course you wouldn’t. That’s why it is crucial to keep the wants and needs of all of your honored guests in mind as you make these all-important decisions. The seating, the décor, the menu and the music are all things that will help determine whether your guests had a good time at your party. You’ll likely have guests from eight to eighty at your reception and it’s important to keep all of them in mind throughout the planning process.

If you keep these concepts in mind and plan according, it will go a long way towards ensuring that your friends and family will be talking fondly about how your reception was “the best one ever!”.
