Planning Tips to Make Your Wedding Reception Even More Special

A beautiful wedding story should always include both a picturesque wedding and a warm, welcoming reception where the new bride and groom can celebrate their marriage and make lasting memories with family and friends. Since one very visible part of any reception will include the seating for both guests and their wedding party, taking time to make careful plans is sure to add even more to your big day.

If you are planning your wedding, or assisting a friend or relative with theirs, the following tips will help you make sure that the reception will be a perfect complement to an already unforgettable wedding day. 

Remember the importance of choosing and arranging the right seating

Wedding photos taken at the reception are sure to be handed down through the family for generations, as the bride and groom pose together and with special family members or friends. To make sure each photo is perfect, it is important to choose an arrangement for tables and chairs that will look attractive, while still allowing plenty of space for mingling, dancing, and serving food. 

The bride, groom, and their wedding party should always be seated together where they can be the center of the celebratory festivities. To help differentiate the wedding party from the wedding guests, consider opting for tables and seating options that help them stand out from the crowd. 

For example, choosing a larger table and a pair of stately upholstered chairs for the wedding couple, will help set them apart from the remainder of the wedding party, who can be seated around them in less ornate chairs. Likewise, the remainder of the guests should also be seated in comfortable, but durable, chairs arranged in pleasant groupings, with tables fanning out gracefully from those of the wedding party.  

Consider creating a special children's section where kids can eat and play comfortably

Sitting quietly during the ceremony and then waiting while photos are taken can bore even the best behaved child. If children will be attending your wedding reception, a good plan is to create a special section for them in an adjoining area.

Use child-sized furnishings and set out finger foods and juice that kids can munch on while playing games, coloring, or immersing themselves in quiet activities while the adults are busy with the reception. 

To make both parents and children feel safe, consider hiring an experienced, trustworthy person to sit with the children and keep them safe and happy during the reception. Since wedding receptions can last for hours, consider bringing in yoga mats and light blankets to let weary children rest or nap when needed. 

For even more great seating tips for any wedding celebration, speak with your local party planning center, like They be able to provide an affordable array of table and chair options for any size celebration, as well as table linens in a variety of colors, vases, candle holders, and more.
