“Planning the union of a couple is a great task which not many people can actually do well. This is the reason why there are event organizers and event planners up and down the country with lots of work. One aspect of planning the event that kick starts the wedded state of a couple which may be downplayed due to the excitement and furor of the wedding ceremony is the reception. Wedding reception planning should also be as precise as the ceremony. Although the reception after the church or place of worship ceremony is relatively less formal and more uninhibited than the ceremony, a degree of formality may also be present especially when the reception is held in a formal location.
Aspects Of Wedding Reception Planning
Wedding reception planning maybe more difficult than planning the ceremony held in church or any place of worship. Usually, it is the pastor or a priest, who guides the whole ceremony in the place of worship while in the reception, a host or a DJ or a master of ceremonies will be the guide. Wedding reception planning has a lot of aspects that can be included in the reception. The aspects in the wedding reception planning are the program of activities and the dinner menu. Although these are only two things, these are major aspects that should be given attention in the wedding reception planning stage.
The program in any wedding reception planning includes the announcement of the newlyweds as they are presented to the reception for the first time as Mr. and Mrs., dinner and the corresponding activities that go with wedding reception such as cake cutting, wine drinking, the first dance, bouquet and garter throwing and many others. The bride and groom can add and delete from the activities that may be included in the wedding reception planning as proposed by the event organizer or planner.
Wedding reception planning also includes the dinner menu and the drinks that accompany it. The choice of food that is served during dinner now has choices for those who have certain preferences when it comes to food. There are usually two to three choices foods that the guests can choose from. The choices are usually sent along with the wedding invitation and the RSVP includes the guests’ preferences. This is important in wedding reception planning as some guests may have allergies or health issues with food that will require them to choose their diet carefully.”
