Reception

So after the ceremony┬ácomes everyone’s favorite part of any wedding.

The Reception!

Like the ceremony, where you decide to hold your reception is one of the most important and critical things that you can do for your wedding. You need to pick a place where you know people are going to have the times of their life, but still maintain that elegant and classy look. That was what my husband and I, and what I encourage for each of our clients, kept in mind when deciding.

We were lucky enough to have an absolutely beautiful beach to host our reception and I don’t think anyone could disagree that it was perfect. You don’t want the venue for your reception to look like it could hold a frat party, but you want people to have a good time.

Our reception was perfect because it was on the beach and once we knew weather wasn’t going to be a factor, we had nothing to worry about. If you hold your reception indoors you have less of a risk of things that could ruin a wedding, like rain but you also have a lot more options for decorations and things like that.

A friend of mine was talking to me about having a wedding outside and told me that at her wedding, there were bees all over the place and almost ruined her wedding. She had to call a pest service just a few days before her special day and come clear everything out.

Luckily, we weren’t on the phone with her company where we were at, I couldn’t imagine the nightmare that could have been :)
