10 Spanking New Ideas For Your 2017 Reception!
BY Sakshi Saxena | 10 Nov, 2017
A Reception is a way more intimate event than the wedding. The guests who come are mostly near and dear ones. It's also an emotional event, since it marks the end of your wedding festivities, so it most probably will be the last time you guys are all getting together. So why not make it extra special with some cool new ideas which are just fabulous?
Have an intimate sit-down dinner

This one is inspired by weddings abroad, but it is a superb idea if you're having an intimate reception with only your near and dear ones- this especially works well for a destination wedding. Arrange for long table seating with some fab decor!
Keep a small gift on every guest's plate

A small token of appreciation for the effort they took to come for your wedding! Keep it on their earmarked plates and it'll be a sweet surprise!
Serve some trending food
From coffee served in cones to 'diamond Cappuccinos' and even boozy ice cream or Old Monk Gulab Jamuns- serve some Instagram-worthy food at your reception which is gonna make everyone happy!
Have an all-white party

Everything white around you guys- the decor, the cake and the guests outfits and only you both in colour- that's also a great idea to stand out in the crowd and have your own special fairytale moment!
Make a dramatic entry or exit

This is one of our favourites which makes the photos look fabulous! Cold pyros and sparklers around you as you guys come in or leave the reception venue! There are also some more ideas you can read about here like this awesome zorb landing!
Get a live band

A DJ is always an option, but a live band, is an even better idea especially if the setting is smaller- everyone can have a gala time! We heard that the band: Bryden and Parth are a great addition to any wedding.
Get fireworks with a hashtag #2017goals
This one has to be our favourite among the many pictures we see day after day. A hashtag sparkler moment is a must-have at any Reception and it says - we sealed the deal!
The last dance
The last image of you guys - dancing away to your favourite song with the symbol of your wedding as a backdrop - in this case, it's a phrase that got these guys going!
A great table setting

If it's an intimate do, then a great table setting works wonders - just pay attention to detail. The wedding and pre-wedding ceremonies are all about masses but the Reception is the time to go slow!
The shoe game
It's the new and popular game that we can make couples play after the wedding. The game is about answering questions about you as a couple. Who makes up after a fight- you answer by putting up a shoe of the person who does. Hmmm, only game you can go home with!
