Some unique reception ideas include lining the path from the ceremony to the reception with photos of the bride and groom with their guests and making the menus a puzzle that requires teamwork. Offering a dessert buffet or a wine tasting also makes a reception fun and memorable.
Some people have arranged for a local food truck to delight guests with a surprise snack. Another idea to make a reception unique is to hire unexpected, non-traditional entertainers such as tarot card readers, stand-up comedians or magicians. Entertainers that can get guests moving, such as square dance instructors, are an unexpected way to ensure everyone has a great time.
