A wedding is truly a showcase of your own unique style, but it also is a celebration of the blending of two lives and two families. Many brides spend quite a bit of time planning the perfect wedding reception that provides guests with an unforgettable evening and that also captures the essence of who the couple is, too. Planning such an event can be truly stressful as you try to pull all of the details of the big event together. First, though, you have to come up with some fabulous wedding reception ideas to center your plans around.
Many couples find that themed events are a great way to add some unique individuality to their event. Some will choose a theme that is centered around something they feel passionately about, such as their alma mater, their profession or hobby, or even a social cause they are devoted to. Others will choose a more generic yet customized theme such as a Victorian event, a country chic event, and so forth. Others will choose a blended them that explores the differences in the two families that are joining together, such as if a Jewish family and Christian family were being joined in the celebration. Such an event would feature elements of each family’s traditions. There is really no right or wrong way to do a themed wedding.
That Extra Something Special
Whether you make the decision to have a themed wedding or a more traditional affair, if you are like most brides, you want to add that extra something special to your event. Weddings, as personal as they are, can be fairly non-descript when you don’t add some personal flair to the event. This may mean that you include some photos of you and your fiance growing up in a framed montage or video montage in some area of the reception. It may mean that you both sing a love song to each other, or something else entirely. Consider who you and your spouse-to-be are as individuals and what you can do that can truly celebrate your two lives joining together.
These are just a few of the many wedding reception ideas that you can put to use in your own reception. You will find that when you keep in mind that the event brings family and friends together to celebrate the new life the two of you are beginning together, you likely will be able to find that perfectly unique idea that is just perfect for celebrating the two of you as a beautiful couple in love.
