Reception WOW Factors

Reception WOW Factors

One of the biggest questions our couples ask us is, “What can we do to make our wedding different than all of the others we’ve been to?” The key is to introduce a few exciting elements, but not go overboard (you don’t want your wedding to look like an out-of-control Pinterest board!). These elements can be subtle or extravagant, but either way, they add fun and flare to your overall vision.  Below are some of our favorite reception “wow factors” to make your event feel special.

Nothing says “Wow!” like a little sparkle to greet your guests when they look for their escort card.

Photo booths with fun props allow your guests to get playful. Having a photo booth that can print double strips also gives you a special keepsake when you turn them into a scrapbook for your guests to sign.
