You have almost everything planned for your wedding reception but now, when you look at the plan and the timing, you have noticed a little problem. There is some time between the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception that you need to fill in for your guests. It is the time when you need to take the photos and the guests head for the wedding reception venue. So, what to do then?
There are a lot of things to have at a wedding while guests wait for you and your photographer to finish the photo session. Of course that the ideal would be your guests will not wait for you too long, so you might talk to the photographer to take some of the photos before the ceremony. However, if your guests still need to wait, a thirty to 45 minutes waiting period is more than enough. Too much would be too rude of you.
So they have to wait for thirty minutes. And you need to think about things to have at a wedding while guests wait. First and foremost, they need to have something to drink and eat. Not too many things, not too much, just some platters with cheese, crackers, vegetables or fruit. Soda, water or lemonade, maybe some wine or champagne are also nice beverages to have at the wedding. It depends on the type of wedding and your budget.
Along with these appetizers, it is also a good idea to make your guests get into the mood. So again according to your preferences, your guests and wedding theme, choose some background music that will soothe and entertain your guests. Other things to have at a wedding while guests wait are related to photos. You can have photo albums for your guests to look or you can have a selection of photos projected by the DJ.
At the same time, you can let your guest take photos in a photo booth and fill in your guest books. If this is too much for your budget, then other things to have at a wedding while guests wait would be some games they could play and would make them relate to each other, especially if you are having a big wedding.
And so this is your backup plan. Choose what suits you and have a nice wedding day!11
