Tell a Story

Share the story of your love with your attendees or how you got engaged! Place pictures and memories that led you to the big “I do” around your reception. Print off your photos as polaroid’s and string them throughout the reception with lights and other decor. It’s YOUR day, tell YOUR story.

Creative Food/Beverage Choices

Have a “make-your-own station”! Be creative! Make your own alcohol beverages, desserts, etc. These are great stations for guests to get involved and make their own signature creations! Or, hire a local food truck to serve handheld foods such as tacos, ice cream or pizza! Food trucks are a popular trend right now, why not have one at your wedding? The food will not disappoint!

Social Media

Most of your guests are active on social media. Give them a reason to post live pictures from your wedding and show their followers how much fun they’re having! Include stations with fun props for photos and your wedding #hashtag. Props can be hats, glasses, shapes, phrases, etc. Pictures last forever, make them AMAZING!

Instead of using a DJ, try something different! Hire a local band to perform at your wedding. It won’t be songs that are on the radio and that will make your reception unique! It will get your guests on their feet dancing the night away.
