5 Unique Wedding Reception Ideas

Plan the ultimate wedding reception your guests won’t soon forget. Whether you are just starting or in midst of planning your wedding reception, you are in the right place. We have pulled together a list of our favorite wedding reception ideas that you can incorporate into your big day. Cheers to your happily ever after party!

1. Audio Guestbook

Leave a message after the beep because these are the voicemails you will want to save long after your guests leave. An audio guestbook, like Confetti Call based in Calgary, allows guests to leave a heart felt message that they would otherwise write in a guestbook. Nothing is better than hearing your friends and family create memories that will last a lifetime.

 2. Pet Inspired Name Signature Cocktail

We love this unique way to incorporate your pet into your big day. Create a signature cocktail that is named after both of your true loves; your pet! With endless cocktail menus out there, this is a perfect way to narrow down the list a his, hers and the dog or cat’s favorite drinks! Check out one of our favorite New Mexico weddings with their signature cocktail menu at the reception.

3. Live Wedding Painting

A live wedding painting is the gift that keeps on giving long after your wedding day. This is a great add on for entertainment for guests as they watch the artist capture your big day in such a unique way. The best part of a live painting is getting these special piece framed and in your home. Make your wedding memories last a lifetime with this unique reception idea.

Check out Hannah Wilson Art (Colorado Live Wedding Painter) or K Potter Fine Art (Montana Live Wedding Painter) for two talented artists based in the Rocky Mountains.

4. Personalized Coozies and Cocktail Napkins 

Think coozies and cocktail napkins, but make it fun. Personalize coozies and cocktail napkins with something special on your big day. This is a fun way to incorporate your pets, wedding date, last name initial, you name it. Best of all, a coozie is the gift that keeps on giving, even when your guests go home!
