Your wedding reception is a chance to let it all hang out. There is much less structure than the wedding ceremony, and you have many more opportunities to show off your personality, from the music you play to the type of name cards you put on the tables.
Take advantage of these opportunities to create a unique wedding reception that will show your guests a great time. Here are a few things you can do to add more spark to your wedding reception:
Create a Fun Introduction
The reception typically officially starts when the newly married couple is introduced at the reception. Instead of the formal announcement of your names, think of something special for your introduction.
For example, you might ask your wedding DJ in Scottsdale to introduce you and your bridal party the same way that boxers are introduced before a match. You can write special descriptions based on the personality of your friends and memories you have shared together.
Or you might introduce yourself and your bridal party like celebrities on a red carpet. The key to success here is hiring the right Scottsdale wedding DJ who has the right energy and can adopt the right tone to make it fun.
Make Unique Song Choices
Your first song should be one that’s special to you. But you have the opportunity to have fun with your other song choices, such as what is played during the cake cutting, the bouquet toss, or the garter throw.
For example, you could play the theme music from Jaws as you cut the cake and your guests are wondering whether you will do the classic cake smash into the face. Or you could play the theme music from Mission Impossible as the groom reaches under the dress to get out the garter.
Think outside the box for your song choices and go with something unexpected and fun. If you are coming up short, your Scottsdale wedding DJ can help you with ideas – or at least let you know what songs to avoid since they are overplayed at receptions.
Create Actual Sparks
If you prefer something a little more low-key and romantic, ask your guests to send off lighted lanterns into the sky. They can each make a wish for you and your new life together as they light the lanterns.
You can look in the sky and see a beautiful visual representation of all the love that you are surrounded with by your friends and family.
