It is every couple’s wish to have a beautiful, amazing and truly unforgettable wedding. Since it is your big day, you want it to be absolutely perfect for you, your family and friends. With a little bit of good planning you can have a wedding that will keep them talking fondly for years to come. The following are a few simple tips that you can incorporate into your wedding planning to make your reception more memorable:

Good food is a good thing

Reception food is one of the things that makes or breaks a wedding. Whether the food was good or not is often the first thing people will recall when they think about a reception they once attended. This shows how important the food is for a memorable wedding day. Make sure that you win over your guests, family and friends by offering delectable dishes. Ask your married family and friends for the names of some recommended caterers and do your homework (taste-testing). When the big day comes, if the food is good, much of the groundwork for your memorable wedding has already been been done.

Choose a unique venue

Your wedding venue will help to determine whether your wedding is memorable or not. When choosing the perfect venue, select one that will give your guests their first “wow” moment when they arrive to the location of the wedding. With its stately three-story manor house and stunning manicured grounds, as an ideal wedding venue Swan Manor provides all the drama that’s needed to make an unforgettable first impression.

Focus on the reception music

If your wedding budget allows for a live band, give serious consideration to going this route for a memorable reception. Just be sure to hire an outfit that can perform songs from a range of musical genres to keep everyone happy. Similarly, if a DJ is supplying the music, make your reception extra fun for your guests by asking a good sampling of them ahead of time for their favorite party songs, then make sure the DJ puts these tracks on the playlist. To make things even more personal, the DJ can give a shoutout on the mic to the guest who suggested the track he’s about to play.

Use creative bar accessories

If you have a theme for your wedding, it is important to bring it to the bar. Whether it means elaborate martini accessories for a black tie affair, mason jars for a vintage chic wedding or specialty ice cubes for a signature drink, simply put some extra effort into the general presentation of the drinks. Don’t forget to have some special non-alcoholic drink options for the teetotalers.

In conclusion, it is important to remember that this is your big day. It is the time to celebrate your love and invite family and friends to share in that joy with you. Do not hesitate to do things a little differently as this will make also make the wedding more memorable.
