Personalizing your Reception

By Brittany Pumphrey

After saying 'I Do,' every bride deserves to kick back and party at her reception. Here are a few tips on how to make your reception as unique as you and your groom.

  • Now that you have officially started a family, a perfect way to strut your new last name is using monogrammed runners or accessories. This idea will be an extension of the unity between you and your spouse.

  • Instead of repetitive table numbers, put a picture of you and your groom at the age of the table number. This will personalize your reception to let your guests feel like they know you a little bit better. It also might be comical to remember those crazy styles way back when.

  • As a newlywed, your groom may not know all the tricks in the book on how to live up to the phrase, "Happy Wife, Happy Life." So, provide stationary to have guests write marriage advice to read after the honeymoon.

  • For those guests who may not know you well enough, use a chalkboard to write down all of the important dates in your relationship leading up to your marriage. Your fairytale love story will be displayed for all to see.

  • Even though they may not admit it, one of the reasons guests come to weddings is for the cake. Use a personalized wedding topper to depict the perfect picture of you and your price charming's relationship.

  • No one goes anywhere without their smartphone. Have your guests use the devices to your benefit by creating a hashtag for them to use as they take pictures of the happy day. Then you can go back and reminisce for years to come.

  • At the end of the day, you want your guests to remember the fun celebration you planned and worked so hard for. Let them take away something to remember like a koozie or sunglasses with your names and wedding date printed on them.

As you are watching the Wedding Pinterest board like a hawk for new ideas, rest assured that personalizing your reception will be the one part that takes the cake in your wedding.... No pun intended.
