Wedding Wednesday: The Reception

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

Now that planning is in full swing, the ideas are flowing. I want to wow our guests when they step into the reception. Being the beginning of spring, I want everything to feel very fresh and natural with the dark contrast of the purple accents. These are some ideas for the reception decor and setup. 
P.S. sorry, I forgot it was Wedding Wednesday so you'll have to wait to see my Free People look until tomorrow...oh the suspense.
I am going to have a Menu outside the reception doors so our guests will know what tasty meal they have to look forward to.
We are going to have one full length "feast" style table for the bridal party and family to all sit together. I don't like the idea of being up on a stage above everyone else. I want to be able to interact with our guests and make it easy for people to come and talk to us.

This uplighting is so beautiful and the intricate lighting on the wall ads that extra bit of detail. I hope I can find something like this.

Instead of a typical display of wedding cake, I want our guests to indulge in a variety of  tasty trifles and tarts.

We are thinking of going with a low round centrepiece, but haven't decided yet if we're going to go with a soft neutral colour scheme (my choice), or something dark and bold (fiance's choice). Our linens are going to be dark purple so I like the idea of the centrepiece standing out rather than blending in. What do you think?
