5 Creative Wedding Reception Ideas

creative-wedding-reception-ideasWant to make sure that your guests have the time of their lives at your reception? Think outside the box when wedding planning, and try one of these creative wedding reception ideas that are sure to win you the “most fun wedding of the year” award.

1. Set up a SpeechBooth

Not all of your friends and family have the opportunity (or inclination) to give a toast in front of everyone, but many would still love to have the chance to offer their love, congratulations and advice more privately. SpeechBooth offers the perfect way to do this - with minimal expense and hassle. Simply order a DIY kit, and set up a video booth that is easy for guests to use to record their personalized messages throughout your reception. After the wedding, you’ll receive a professionally edited compilation video and all the raw footage of guests’ messages.

2. Offer a Respite from the Dance Floor

Even the most enthusiastic dancers at your wedding reception will need a breather from time to time. Set up a relaxing lounge area away from the dance floor with sofas, comfy chairs, water bottles, games and flip-flops for weary feet. It will be more comfortable and appealing than camping out at the reception tables.

3. Ask for Requests

If you want everyone to bust a move on the dance floor, one of the simplest creative wedding reception ideas is to let your guests contribute to the DJ’s playlist. At the beginning of the wedding reception, ask the DJ to announce he or she will be taking song requests for a set period of time. Let people write down their faves, and get ready for a great dance party.

4. Make Dessert Extra Refreshing

Instead of serving traditional wedding cake, opt to rent a retro ice cream, frozen yogurt or snow cone cart to serve refreshing desserts. Pick a few of your favorite ice cream flavors to serve, or create a signature daiquiri that can be enjoyed with or without alcohol added.

5. Serve Late-Night Munchies

The golden rule of wedding planning is to make sure your guests are well fed. A few hours after the dancing starts - well after dinner has been served - hire a local food truck to make a surprise appearance at your wedding reception. Guests will love refueling on tacos, mini sandwiches or other tasty treats.
