Reception Roundup

Before we were engaged, the reception and reception details were safe wedding topics for us to discuss.  We threw around all sorts of ideas and had a lot of fun getting inspiration without diving into wedding research.  Our list of  “reception must haves?”

Photo booth

We. love. photo booths.  I even initially suggested using one  for our Save the Dates- but am pleased that we decided against it. The idea of our friends and family hamming it up in a photo booth had our toes tingling.

Lounge Seating

We wanted our reception to have an informal feel and be full of mingling.  We thought that a section of lounge seating would help to create this vibe.  Like Mrs Pineapple, we found the modern ambiance that lounge seating creates very tempting.

Cupcakes

Mr P has dubbed cupcakes “perfectly sized cake nirvana”.  He has a thing for the bite-sized treats.  When I mentioned that I don’t care for wedding cake he quickly said “we should have cupcakes!”  Sounds perfect to me- especially when I found out that cupcakes cost a fraction of the cost of wedding cake. SCORE!

We were pretty proud of ourselves. Being wedding novices these elements were, in our minds, completely groundbreaking and original.  Imagine my surprise when I started to do a little wedding research and found that these three elements are quite “en vogue” in the wedding world.

Oh well, Mr P and I aren’t the type of people to change our minds about what we want because other people are doing it.  Our excitement over these elements hasn’t been diminished by their popularity either.  As Mr P puts it- we have good taste.  *grin*

What wedding element are you planning that seems to be a wedding “trend”?
