Checklist for the Wedding Reception

As you just start the wedding planning process, it is necessary to have a complete wedding reception checklist. This will not only help you with the timeframe following, but also allow you to fulfill all the tasks before the wedding day takes place. The checklist should include the vendors you hired and the activities you planned. Believe me, planning will significantly simplify your wedding planning process as well as save you energy and time.

Wedding reception checklist

Almost any wedding cannot make t without hiring the wedding vendors. The key vendors usually are the reception location and the caterer if the latter is not offered by the location. Also don’t forget to include to the checklist the musicians or DJ, photographer, florist, cake baker and videographer. If you feel like you cannot manage the wedding planning yourself, it wouldn’t be an extra hiring the wedding planner or coordinator in order to have a smoothly running wedding.
Food and drink
The checklist should contain the menus for the main meal, cocktail hour and dessert. Another thing you should define is whether you want to set the open bar, cash bar or avoid bar at all. Based on your decision, you should include the liquor and bar needs to the checklist, which lies in purchasing the drinks, hiring the bartender and bar installing. Don’t forget to serve the nonalcoholic drinks like water.
Make sure to include the special activities to your wedding reception checklist: these might be the good old traditions like the tossing of the bouquet or garter and wedding cake cutting. Don’t forget to add to the checklist the preparation for the special dances like the first dance, father and daughter dance, mother and son dance and of course the bridal party dance. It is also necessary to pick the songs for each dance. Besides the dances, consider having other entertainment activities like the games. It is necessary to include each of these activities to your checklist to make sure your wedding reception goes the way you want it.
