I’ve heard it time and time again, “You worry too much about what others think. You can’t please everyone. Remember, it’s your day… worry about pleasing yourself,” but I’ve yet to meet anyone that hasn’t considered his/her guests at all. Of course, there’s always a desire to make everyone happy during planning.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t typically throw parties and invite a group of people ranging from Great Aunt Essie to a gaggle of toddlers. It’s harder to entertain a wide variety of people who don’t really know each other than it is to throw a bash for your peers with somewhat common interests. You don’t want to offend or bore people. It’s actually ridiculously hard to figure out how to make lots of people feel comfortable. In planning a wedding, you have an obligation to try to make it a great experience for everyone, not just you and the wedding party.
So here’s the question: What would YOU like to do/see at a wedding reception? Not just what you’ve seen before, but what do you actually enjoy doing/seeing?
