WEDDING RECEPTION TRADITIONS
Cheers and toast
The first toast is proposed by the best man after the wedding party has been served. Then family members, friends or even the bride and groom can follow him.
The actual cutting of the cake is also symbolic of your new life together, so it is important to do it together. Cut the cake hand-over-hand and feed each other a small piece.
The bride and groom dance in front of their guests and relatives. Try to schedule dances lessons or practice even if you’re not planning on doing choreography. It will help you to be more comfortable with your dance skills in general and it will bring you closer to each other.
After the First dance, the bride dances with her father, the groom’s father and best man. Then, the groom dances with his mother, the bride’s mother and maid of honor. At last, other guests can join them on the dance floor.
Bouquet and Garter toss
The bride tosses her bouquet over her shoulder to a group of all the single women present. Whoever catches it is supposed to be the next to get married. Similarly, the groom throws the bride’s garter to the single men, often after removing it from her leg.
Photo booths are an amazing idea to entertain everyone at the reception and preserve lovely wedding memories.
A wedding party favor your guests will love to keep forever. A mobile flip book studio comes to your event captures a quick and prints still photos that form on site and bind them into a fun custom flip book in minutes. This idea really adds a unique element to your event.
Surprise Choreographed Dances
Though the first dance has been a tradition that usually involves romantic songs regarding love, couples getting married in the new millennium have been choosing popular, upbeat songs and dances to surprise guests with at their reception. The entire bridal party can even become a dance crew with a little practice. There are no limits for this fun trend.
