I loved our reception. Not only was it a good time, but the room looked amazing (in my unbiased opinion). We held the reception at a local hall that was basically brand new, I think we were about the 6th wedding to be held there.
The table numbers were an issue and a half. We had so much trouble making them work! But in the end, they turned out great. Each table number had a picture of myself and Ryan at that age.
The head table had Ryan and myself at the end, and the bridesmaids down one side and groomsmen down the other. I saw this at another wedding and loved the idea. It allowed everyone to talk to each other instead of only being able to talk to the person next to you. I found it much more enjoyable.
I thought our seating plan turned out great as well! My mom was the crafty one with most of this stuff.The centrepieces were some orchids in a tall vase. Simple but classy. I wanted the feel of the hall to be elegant and not overwhelming.
