Top 4 Tips for a Perfect Wedding Reception

With your Las Vegas wedding reception being the most intricate part of the Big Day, you definitely want to make sure you put a lot of attention to detail in the way you plan it. How do you do it the RIGHT way, though? What makes a wedding reception go from “good” to “absolutely fantastic”?

We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

  • Your venue is crucial. Don’t be afraid to think out of the box, though: if you’re not a ballroom kind of bride, then don’t settle for a classic wedding venue. Rustic barns are really popular right now, but you can go even farther with this and have your wedding in a vineyard, in a national park, or even in a museum – there’s really something out there for all bridal styles and all pockets.
  • Big tasks first. No matter how excited you are about choosing the perfect vases and the prettiest monogram for your napkins, tackle the big tasks first. The catering service, the DJ, the overall wedding flower look – they’re all at the top of the list when it comes to prioritizing your wedding planning tasks. Take care of those first, get them out of the day, and then focus on all the little details that will make you SHINE with happiness on your Big Day.
  • Remember to think of a seating chart. If you want your guests to feel good during the reception, a seating chart is really important. Try to put together people who know each other (or who seem compatible in terms of personality), and always separate people who are very likely to have a fight at your wedding (e.g. exes, for example).
  • It is absolutely essential to put down a timeline. Once you know where your wedding will take place and once you know what you want to include in it (e.g. what type of entertainment, what type of food, etc.), it is absolutely necessary to write down a timeline of the reception and share it with your day-of wedding vendors, so that they can coordinate (with you, and among themselves).
