Yay! The reception is the fun part!! So why not make it actually fun from start to finish.
You have been to weddings where there has been plenty of wasted time and drawn out conversations as people make their way to their seats, why not speed this up, after all, we have a party to get to!
Kick off your reception with a bang.
Do more than just 'open the doors'
Make guests eager to get in and sit down
Here is an idea...
When the reception doors open - SURPRISE - The party is already started with performers putting on a great act on the dance floor. With a performance drawing guests in, those guests will have a reason to take their seats and settle in. So do your part and give them that reason.
Doing something catchy will have the reception start off with some pizazz instead of 'the usual' sequence. This works best with a professional performance company as they often have acts that grow in intrigue and intensity. Or consider a flash mob. Or other options.
Think about it, try it, wouldn't you sit down and watch if these guys were strutting their stuff?
