Reception Question...

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone has posted this question yet but what is the average dw reception like. After everyone has dinner, is the reception over? If you do you have music during dinner and if you have a dj, do you have a party where the traditional garder/bouquet toss takes place? Or does everyone just go their seperate ways?

There really isnt any average, I dont think anyway. Some people go all out and follow every tradition and others keep some traditional components and toss some also.

 

We for example, will have bouquet, wedding attire, bestman and maid of honor, a gazebo ceremony, and DJ reception with most likely a buffet dinner and ofcourse dancing and cocktails. And Photographer. oh and mother son dance. and first dance together.

 

However we WONT be having....

Cake

Garter Toss

Wedding Bands (we are getting tattood)

bridesmaids

groomsmen

father daughter dance

 

I'm sure theres more but I'm not remembering at the moment.

 

Really the whole point of a DW is that you can create your own special day and keep the traditions that are important to you and ommit the other ones.

I think depends on how many people you are expecting and how formal/traditional you want to be.

 

Our reception is going to be fairly traditional with dinner, a cake and a DJ. We're doing the father/daughter, mother/son, first dance. We're not doing the boquet or garter toss. It's basically going to be a big, fun party.

 

Some people go all out and have fire dancers, fireworks, salsa dancers, cigar rollers....the options are endless.

The beauty of having a DW is that anything goes. You can do as little or as much as you want. We are having a dinner, cake and then depending on the time we may end up at a club downtown. We'll pretty much wing in that day. Anything goes.... shoot maybe we'll all put on our swim suites after dinner and go for a swim in the pool,,,, anything goes.. :-)

Funny you should mention swimming in the pool...we went to his cousin's wedding at a resort and after the dinner and dancing...the groom and his friends all jumped into the pool...with thier atire on! It was halirous...then we moved into another indoor pool...and everyone changed into suits and we were playing stupid ass games in the pool for hours! It was the greatest wedding reception we had been apart of!! :)

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
