Every couple wants a personal, sweet wedding reception to showcase their love story to their guests, yet this can be a challenge to accomplish on top of all other wedding duties. We have compiled some of our favorite personal touches for wedding receptions to make your wedding planning process that much smoother.

Use childhood photos as table numbers- Put childhood photos of the bride and groom at each age to represent the table numbers. This adds a funny, light-hearted touch your guests will be entertained by. 

Include a timeline of your love story- Add a synopsis of your love story to the program, or as a sign at the reception. This is a sweet way for guests to learn the history of you two as a couple.

Create a collage of photos- Display various photos of your relationship for the guests to look at. This creates a sweet way for guests to feel connected to your relationship, and to see photos they may not have had the chance to see otherwise.

Incorporate date idea jar- Allow guests to write a date idea/ piece of advice for you to look back on. It’s a way for your guests to be creative, and to also feel included in your new marriage.

Honor loved ones- Honor loved ones who can’t be with you on your special day by adding photos to your bouquet. This way, they will be with you every step of the way. Here are more heartfelt ways to honor your loved ones on your wedding day.

Send guests with personalized wedding favors- A mix tape of love songs that have significant meaning to your relationship is just one example of a sweet favor that will take your guests back to your special day every time they listen to it. See more personalized wedding favors ideas.
