If you are like most brides-to-be, you want to have a memorable wedding day and reception. If you’re still in the planning phases, know that accomplishing this goal is not as hard as it seems. As long as you follow a few basic rules, your big day and after party will be sure to knock everyone’s socks off.

Pick a Great Location – It’s Everything

Where you have your wedding makes a huge impact on everything. Whether you go exotic, or stay local, to add the most pizzazz pick a great venue. Your venue needs to represent you and your groom’s personality as well, and this will help you make it a special place for your special day. You can also go out-of-the-box with crazy ideas like renting out a section of the zoo, or a movie theater, or even an amusement park.

Hire Professionals, Not Friends

When it comes to your wedding day and reception, make sure you hire professionals to take care of the big jobs. Yeah, you probably have a friend or relative that has a fancy camera, but do you really want to entrust them with your wedding photos? The same goes for the food. At Catering By Design, we have affordable Raleigh catering menus for weddings, as well as free menu tastings for brides and their families.

Music and Other Entertainment

Speaking of professionals, you can also make your reception a huge hit by hiring other fun vendors as well. These include hypnotists, comedians, magicians, a psychic or palm or tarot card reader.

When it comes to music, you can hire a traditional wedding DJ or local band, but if you want to bring some real excitement and hilarity to your reception, why not hire a couple of dueling pianos? These guys/gals are comedians and musicians all rolled up into one. Granted, this might not be for everyone, but your wedding guests sure will remember the occasion if you go this route.

Photos and Guest Involvement

Really fun and memorable weddings have some sort of guest interaction element. Whether it is a photo booth, selfie station, or disposable camera game, using elements of photography to involve the guests is a great idea the leaves lasting impressions. If your budget does not allow for a photo booth, then go for disposable cameras. Guests love to play photographer, so let them.

After your wedding is over and you get all the pictures developed, share your favorite ones on all of your favorite social media sites.
