Receiving the engagement ring means only one thing: your partner is willing to spend the rest of his life admiring your natural beauty in the morning while drinking a hot cup of coffee together, whispering you affectionate words before going to sleep, stargazing on the rooftop, visiting fascinating destinations and creating unforgettable memories. Indeed, you will take care of each other, overcome unexpected obstacles and solve unanticipated problems by communicating and setting your priorities straight. However, before you experience couple life, you have a daunting mission to complete – wedding planning. From setting a budget and a timeline, choosing a venue and setting the date, exploring transport options and rehearsing to selecting a wedding theme and a flattering gown, sending the invitations and considering joining forces with a professional wedding planner in order to make sure that everything goes smoothly, the reality is that many future brides get lost in the process and no longer find the strength to shine in the most important day of their life.

Plan each moment of the wedding reception ahead

This is more than understandable because a single person cannot possibly handle so many tasks for so many months. For this reason, we decided to provide you a wedding reception timeline so that you have the certainty that probably the most important part of your wedding night proves to be a success. Of course, you will know in advance when the photographer arrives, when the bridesmaids make their appearance in their gorgeous dresses, when you all have to prepare for the shooting, how long the ceremony lasts, when the hosts make the welcome toasts, when you and your guests hit the dance floor. Furthermore, you will be able to witness the satisfaction on the guests’ face when tasting the incredibly delicious food provided by the wedding caterers you chose and the weird yet interesting dance moves they can pull off after a couple of drinks, which obviously include soft velvety wine and refined champagne. Most importantly, you have the chance to share the excitement and joy caused by this entire night with your husband.

Enjoy every second of your special night

Usually, a wedding reception lasts approximately five hours, from the midnight until the morning, which gives you plenty of time to eat, drink, socialize, dance and celebrate love. However, you do have to ensure that everything goes according to the plan. The wedding reception starts with the cocktail hour, which represents the perfect opportunity to mingle with guests or enjoy a romantic time with your partner. After the cocktail hour, everyone sits at the table waiting for diner, but not before they listen to the bride’s father welcome speech. Later in the night, the best man will also have to give a toast for which he undoubtedly prepared intensely, followed by traditional wedding dances. Make sure that you choose a special song for when the DJ invites you to head to the dance floor and all eyes are watching you because it represents a unique moment that you will forever remember. Cutting the cake and tossing the bouquet fall into the same category of much-awaited moment of the night.
