7 Specific Ideas For Your Reception

Make your Day Totally YOURS

Let’s reveal 7 specific ideas to make your wedding totally YOU!

Nobody’s wedding should be “cookie-cutter.”

Your wedding is your day, and it should feel like an extension of your personality.
After performing over 1500 receptions, I know the thing that makes each wedding unique is: you.

Your guests have never been at a party celebrating your love with your fiancé.
They’ve never seen you in that gorgeous gown, walk down the aisle, or party on the dance floor.


Here’s the secret:
Weave as much of your personality as you can into your wedding day.
(It makes your guests feel connected to you).


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, but it also 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.

3. Share Your Childhood Photos.
My favorite way to do this is “Table Years.”
Contact me for the details on this one, it’s pretty cool!

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 with details like, “I promise to bake cookies with you” or
“I vow to watch the game with you on Superbowl Sunday.”

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.
Surprise them with a song like That’s What Friends Are For or Friends In Low Places.

I encourage you to express yourself and tell your story as much as possible!
