If you have an upcoming wedding to organise and want something to really Wow your guests then think of the reception as a vehicle to stamp your identity on the whole proceedings.
Your mother-in-law might want to dictate the actual traditional marriage ceremony but after the formalities have been tended to, a wedding is no different from any other celebration, it is an event that should be fun.
Consider your guests, their age and their interests. If you have invited all your volleyball friends then perhaps a sporting theme may be appropriate, or if you are a member of an orchestra then obviously a musical theme would suit.
Here are some of the more adventurous ideas that will make your reception stand out and be remembered for a long time.
Everybody loves to dance, young and old alike. And a wedding is full of opportunities for dancing. Hire some professional instructors to teach the guests to waltz, swing, merengue, jazz-dance or polka. It will certainly fill the dance floor and encourage all the guests to participate together instead of sitting in their designated dinner seats.
A cigar rolled on the thigh of a senorita is a sensuous and traditional activity, but think about the effect on your male guests if a professional cigar roller was on hand to demonstrate this dying art. Many people like to enjoy a cigar at a wedding and is perhaps the only time they smoke in the whole year. Somebody showing how the craft is done can really bring a touch of class to the proceedings.
Slightly more novel than a wedding photographer is a photo booth, it adds fun and frolicks to proceedings. Photos are the ultimate personalised gift, and many guests will be thrilled taking snaps home with them.
There is nothing like fancy dress for creating a fun atmosphere, hire an assortments of costumes, hats and props and place them in a big trunk on the dancefloor. Guests can dress up in silly wigs and large glasses whilst playing inflatable instruments. This activity is guaranteed to add fun and laughter.
Everybody loves fireworks, at the end of the reception stage a stunning outdoors firework show. Select the rockets and other fireworks in your own colour wedding scheme to leave a lasting impression on all your guests.
