7 Specific Ideas For Your Reception

Make your Day Totally YOURS

Last time we talked about 17 easy ways to wow your wedding guests.
Now let’s reveal 7 specific ideas to make your wedding totally YOU!


I don’t believe anybody’s wedding should be “cookie-cutter.”

Your wedding is your day, and it should feel like an extension of your personality.
What I realized after performing over 1000 receptions, the thing that makes each wedding unique is you.

Your guests have never been at party celebrating your love and relationship with your fiancé.
They’ve never seen you in that gorgeous gown, walking down the aisle, or partying on the dance floor.grey-heart-dividers

Here’s the secret:
Weave as much of your personality as you can into your wedding day.
When you include the details of what makes you special, it makes your guests feel connected to you.
It guarantees an unforgettable day… and these things cost little or no money.


1. Newlywed Trivia.
Create a list of trivia questions about you and your fiance for your guests to answer.
This not only lets your guests get to know you as a couple, it breaks the ice as guests answer questions as each table.

2. Favors That Represent You.
Give your guests favors that say something about your interests.
One couple gave Pez dispensers since the bride was a big collector.
Another gave bottles of mead (honey wine) they had made themselves.

3. Share Your Childhood Photos.
My favorite way to do this is “Table Years.”
For details, contact me to set up a meeting today.

4. Display Your Parents and Grandparents Wedding Photos.
This is a romantic and elegant way to share your family history.

5. Personalize Your Vows.
Write your own vows and add personal details like, “I promise to bake cookies with you” or “I vow to watch the game with you on Superbowl Sunday.”
You can also have your officiant share your love story with everyone.

6. Dedicate a Song.
If there is a song that reminds you of one of your loved ones, have your entertainer dedicate it to them.
It can be serious, sentimental, or silly.

7. Thank Your Guests.
Take a moment around the cake cutting or at the end of the night to thank your guests.
You might invite them to the dance floor to form a big circle and dance together to a song like That’s What Friends Are For or Friends In Low Places.

I encourage you to express your personalities in a way that fits who you are, because it will engage and involve your guests like nothing else.
