The Perfect RECEPTION Selecting the right wedding venue is a very significant feat. Along with the responsibility of choosing a location that is beautiful, convenient for your guests, and spacious enough to put on the party of your dreams, you must decide on the catering, décor, and many more technicalities. Aside from that, you want to personalize that space and add touches that will remain unforgettable and uniquely your own. Whether you want to jazz up your venue with extra lighting or glittery crystal backdrops or you want to add a little “je ne sais quoi” to your sweet table, here are some fun and creative ideas to help you along the way. Cute corners A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not create a picture corner for your priceless memories. Ask your wedding planner or décor specialist to create a special corner, apart from the main reception hall, where guests can mingle and gather to take pictures. This lounge area may include flower arrangements or an ornamental backdrop. It can feature coloured lighting to set a specific ambience or set the stage for your theme. Imagine a scene out of a movie from the roaring ‘20s complete with backlit bar, and flapper-style décor. Take your seat Use your imagination to create imaginative guest seating charts. They are a great way to tie in your theme and show off your unique style. Your escort cards or seating chart may be romantic, humorous, or trendy. Use pretty calligraphy, bold colours, or soft designs to showcase your own flair. You can use a chalkboard; decorate a windowpane, or use ornate picture frames. Seating cards can be hung from the branches of a tree or strung on clothesline with fanciful clips. Anything your imagination can conceive may be used to show guests to their table.
