The Wedding Reception Program
A wedding reception program is very important as it should not just be focused in eating. It should allow the guests to talk to each other, and it should promote different social activities to give the guests and the wedded couple more enjoyment. A few wedding reception programs may include the following:
- Activities or games that will involve the guests
- Entertainment from different groups or individual performers
- Dance numbers may it be from the couple or their invited guests
- Messages to be delivered for the couple
- Thank-you messages of the couple for the guests who have attended the wedding
- Video clips of the event and other visuals that guests may look at
Designing the Wedding Reception Program
The wedding reception program must be coherent in terms of its design to the overall theme applied in the wedding. Here are a few items to be considered when creating a wedding reception program:
- Do not use too many words. Be precise so that the space will not be fully occupied and that it will be easily read by the guests of the wedding.
- Make sure that there is at least one wedding design element that will be applied to the wedding reception program.
- Make sure that the timeline stated in the wedding reception program is accurate so to not cause confusion the the guests of the wedding.
