TIP #10: A Successful Wedding Reception is a lot like a Good Book!

Everyone knows that a good story requires certain elements to make it readable; elements that create interest so that the reader will not want to put the book down!

Did you know that a successful Wedding Reception is a lot like a good book?  You need a unique setting with interesting characters, a plot or storyline that captivates your guests with details that are engaging and entertaining, a climatic highpoint and finally the resolution or ending to an amazing day!

You are probably familiar with some of the key elements or traditions that make up most wedding receptions.  Here is a refresher:

Grand Entrance, First Dance, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Dance, Toasting, Video, Guests Dancing, Cake Cutting, Bouquet and Garter Toss, Last Dance, and the Grand Exit

These elements make up a Reception along with Food and Beverage of course!  Some couples may add elements that are uniquely theirs and some may decide to eliminate elements that do not fit their style.  It is important to remember to keep your quests interested and engaged.  There is nothing worse than a boring party with guests wondering what is coming next!  A Wedding Planner can help you decide what elements suit your tastes best and how to best orchestrate these elements so that your reception runs smoothly and efficiently.  By evenings end your guests will wonder where the time went!
