Choosing the right arrangements for a wedding reception is the starting point to a wonderful night you and all guests will remember for ever, and no one should feel overly stressed in the process, less if we’re talking about you, the bride.

Here are 10 wedding reception arrangements ideas you can juggle in your mind before making a decision.
Flowers might be the natural choice for almost every person that wants to marry, as they’re the traditional way to inject color and excitement into your reception. But this great feature can also be a gigantic trouble when it comes to having to choose one option. This is why, if you want to go simple and stay different, pick tree centerpieces that are naturally green, or artificial with lights! You can have small bamboo trees, bonsai, small fruit trees, freshly cut branches, or even beautiful bushes.
No matter if indoors or outdoors, wedding receptions look stunning with hanging lights, as they make it look as if good and warm vibes are descending from heaven to bring happiness and amusement to you and all guests, who also can feel protected by them. At an outdoor wedding you can hang them from trees; while indoors, through special hanging cables. Also, you can use huge bulbs that hang close to the table.
Peacock Flower Stage Decoration
In case you want to stick with flowers for your wedding reception, then why don’t make it extravagant, and even look as a floating decoration? Get your favorite mix of flower colors and try to have them arranged in a way that can resemble a peacock posing. Big, colorful, and dreamy.
Hanging flower rings are classy, simple, and can incredibly enhance all the atmosphere if done right. Rustic, lovable, colorful, no matter which style you choose, be sure to have them hanging over the guests tables, or maybe just over your special “just married” table.
Want to get a bit surreal? Then consider stuffing bird cages with the most beautiful flowers. This arrangement has the power of creating a fairy tale effect, as well as the perception of time being still. Let the magic reign in your wedding!
This modern decoration is gaining popularity among brides-to be, and even if it’s not the style many are accustomed to, the fact of having beautiful geometric decoration is certainly something that can fit many couples’ desires for a unique reception. Walls in 3D, origami centerpieces and snack tables with all geometric things can be part of a new way of living your wedding fantasy.
“Find your face, find your place”
Guiding guests to their table sometimes can take too much time away from your planner or hostess, so a neat idea lately has been “the sitting board”. The board is filled with the names of your guests and the table assigned to them, so they can find their own seats. BUT, if you care about details, then maybe you want to do something cool with it. Put the name and place of invitees below any printed picture of them! You’ll create a special moment for them too, and it could be a perfect way to thank them for being part of your life.
Healthy snacks table
You should also never underestimate the snacks table, as it helps your guests keep up the energy and good mood until the main course is ready. You can decor your snacks table with any theme you want, but one of the most cherished and successful options is to get a simple wood table and pack it with many healthy snacks. Try getting extravagant fruits to create a tasty and memorable foodie experience.
Functional Seating Reception
Most of us think tables at weddings should be positioned the traditional way—many separated tables— but truth is that spacing problems can come up during the table organization of your wedding, and the staff should be ready to creatively solve the issue; and even if there’s no issue to solve, why don’t just play with table formation? Join them all in a geometric shape, make them just two long lines, put them on a zig zag line, it doesn’t matter! Fun table formations can be the most memorable thing at the wedding.
Ceilings at weddings can be decorated with anything that comes to your mind! It’s a blank space waiting to be filled with your wildest dreams. This kind of whimsical effect can be created with nothing more than umbrellas! As umbrellas make you feel as if you’re in an upside down world dissociated from the real one, which makes sense; this is your wedding, this is your dream, feel it as it is, a place where nothing can do you harm —unless it’s champagne, but is still fun.
Not only can you turn the world upside down with umbrellas, but also the cake, and even better, make it float! You can choose from the simplest to the most extravagant hanging methods to show your guests the magic of a cake, which by itself is great, but now, imagine it floating?!
Note: A wedding reception is the chance you have to fully enjoy your recent union with the love of your life. All these decoration ideas are just an extra to that feeling, don’t forget it.
