Your wedding reception can be the most fulfilling, or the most stressful part of your wedding day. Is it worth it? Let's clear a few things up right away: your reception is not just a way to make your guests get gifts for you. If you go into your reception with gift-getting as your focus, you will find it to be stressful and unfulfilling.
Instead, we encourage brides and grooms to focus on their reception as a time to appreciate their guests. A room full of people will be supporting you and your sweetheart and the committment you're making to one another. These are the people who have helped you as you've grown up. These are the people who will be there for you when you need encouragement down the road. To get the most out of your reception, think of each guest as a gift. Their time and energy and support for you will bring much more satisfaction than anything that may be on your gift table.
Should you do a reception? Basic wedding etiquette says that if many of your guests are coming from out of town, do what you can to feed them! There are many ways to simplify a reception so that you can focus on spending time with your new spouse, as well as your guests.
You can let the Antique Angel Wedding Chapel take care of the reception planning for you. We take care of the catering, the linens, the centerpieces, the music and more! We have a beautiful reception room, or you may opt for a Reception in a Box and head back to your hotel or to the park!
Your guests will be looking forward to spending time with you, congratulating you, on your wedding day. Give the Antique Angel a call to review the possibilities! Let us make your reception a fulfilling and memorable part of your special day!
