Your wedding happens only once in a lifetime. Therefore, it is expected of you to do all the best that you can in ensuring that everything will turn out well.
One of the most awaited parts of a wedding is the wedding reception. This is when you, as newlyweds, get the chance to celebrate with and thank your guests. It is essential for you and your wedding coordinator to come up with a good program; one that will not only be fun and entertaining, but one that is also meaningful and memorable as well.
The basic parts of a wedding reception program include the introduction and entrance of the bridal entourage and the family of the bride and groom, grand entrance of the newlyweds, the opening prayer, some speeches, some intermission numbers, the toast, and then dinner. After dinner activities include the cutting of the cake, removal of the garter from the bride and the tossing of the bouquet.
Here are some pointers that you might want to consider if you want to come up with a wedding reception program like no other.
First off, have other people deliver speeches. The Best Man is not the only one who can do so. Your father and the mother of your groom should also be asked to share a few insights and anecdotes.
While you and your guests enjoy the sumptuous meal, it will be nice if somebody sings for you and your groom. Therefore, you will need to hire a good performer; probably a singer, or a pianist and guitarist, or a band.
If you want the crowd to really have fun, come up with some interesting games. A trivia challenge about you and your groom will be fun and entertaining. You and your groom may also want to enjoy some game fun; if this is the case, hire a game coordinator to think up of the games for you and your groom.
Finally, do not forget to hire a photographer who can take pictures of you, your groom, your families and guests.
