Reader Tip for a Relaxed Wedding Reception


Updated April 20, 2010
(1 Votes)


Our wedding was in the beginning of July. We decided to have the reception outside under pavilions. To cover the tables, brown butcher paper was used. All of the tables were pushed together end to end in several rows. It made more of a family style feel and the whole roll of paper was only $40. For decorations we found very inexpensive adult-sized hats and put the date on the front. We also bought many packs of crayons and scattered the loose crayons on the tables. Wrapped candy and some other small toys completed the table dressing. It was fun and kept everyone entertained until we, the bride and groom, were able to join them. Many people commented on how relaxing the day was.

That is such a great idea! Too many times people try to go with a fancy, expensive wedding. It keeps everybody uptight so they don't ruin the bride's big day. I am sure the little flower girl dresses and little ring bearers loved the crayons. That must have made their day.
