Wedding Reception Checklist

The wedding reception will probably be the part of your wedding where you and your guests spend most of the time. It is the occasion for you to enjoy your family and friends’ company and, most importantly, to celebrate your marriage with them.

The reception also gives the two family parts the opportunity to get to know each other better and merge into one big family as a result of your wedding. In order for you to enjoy a well organized and relaxed wedding reception, consider the checklist below.

Don’t feel overwhelmed by all the ideas pointed out here. Just pick the ones that best suit your dream wedding.

If you neither celebrate in a restaurant nor hire a catering service you should also:

Tip#1: Ensure that someone does a test with the soundsystem, microphones, etc. that day before the event.

Tip #2: Consider the following for the program: welcome speeches, toasts by best man / maid of honor / parents, slide show, cake cutting, long-distance calls, etc. You may find our Activities Checklist useful as well.
