05/02/2018

A wedding is only organized once, so you have to be very careful to make a success of the wedding reception. Luckily, we can give you 6 tips to organize the best wedding reception:

Choose the perfect date
The wedding date is often set months and months in advance. Ask your family and friends if they are available that day. If they have nothing yet planned, tell them to block the date for your wedding so they do not plan anything later on.

Choose a place for the wedding reception
The setting for your religious or civil ceremony will determine the place for your reception. They don’t have to be in the exact same spot but in a different room or part of the grounds, ideally walking distance. Ask for documents from each location so that you can ask the necessary questions during the visit.

If you want a magical wedding, what could be more romantic than marrying the love of your life in a French Château? There’s something magical about castles and if you’ve always dreamt of being a princess, the Chateau of Saint-Martory provides a perfect backdrop for your wedding vows.

Do a table plan
It is extremely important to take into account the affinities of each guest during the preparation of the table plan. Guests needs to feel relaxed and comfortable with their neighbors at the table. Be careful not to taint the overall mood with tension.

Have the decoration done by a service provider
Even if you are good at decorating, look at the providers' specifications anyway.  At this stage of the preparations you will be busy with other more important things.

Anticipate the unexpected
Always have a plan B.  We all wish for beautiful blue skies on our wedding day but no one can predict the weather!  You need to know that an outside event can be moved indoors if necessary.

Animate the evening
The animation of your evening is often entrusted to a DJ or a band. So that everything goes the way you want it to, make sure they have understood exactly what is expected from them during the evening. Make sure he has a list of the music you want to hear, that he knows when the speeches are to be made and ask him for as much information that he can provide.
