Tips for Planning a Fun Wedding Reception: Part One

Dec 04, 2019

Let’s be honest. When you go to a wedding, the part you are most excited about is the reception. While the exchanging of vows is a very special moment, the reception is where you really get to celebrate. Because this is the part that both you and your guests most look forward to, it’s important that you make it memorable and fun for everyone. In part one of this multi-part series, we will give you a few tips on how to make your wedding reception exciting and entertaining!


Planning your wedding can be a stressful process, and many couples find that it is easier to hire a wedding planner to help them with some of the more burdensome tasks than to do it themselves.

While seating may seem like an easy task, it can easily become quite tedious. Instead of pairing together whomever you feel like, it’s important to think carefully about your seating arrangements. You may be tempted to play matchmaker and pair up your cousin with your college roommate, but if you want your wedding to be as enjoyable as it can be, it’s best to seat your guests with people that you know they will be able to talk to.




Dancing is the highlight of most wedding receptions, but it’s hard to have a good time if you can’t dance to the music. Whether you have hired a band or a DJ, be sure that you put together a playlist that everyone will enjoy. It’s a good idea to think about who will be attending your wedding and what kind of music they will enjoy. That being said, we’re not saying that you should exclusively play songs that your grandparents will like. It’s best to create a good mixture so that everyone can find their way to the dancefloor at some point during the reception.



One way to get your guests more involved during the reception is to offer an interactive portion of the meal. At weddings, you expect to have a choice between chicken, beef, or fish, depending on the dishes you decided to serve. However, if you give your guests an option that they can customize to fit their tastes, it will make your wedding more fun and unique. Offer a build-your-own grilled cheese station or a cappuccino station for guests who need a boost of caffeine! While these may seem like small additions, they will make a big impression.


At Serendipity Bridal & Events, we want to help you make your big day as memorable and special as possible. Whether that means assisting you in finding the perfect wedding gown or guiding you through the wedding planning process, we can do it all!
