The Six Things
In addition to the million other things
you have to do to prepare for you wedding day, filling out an itinerary
for your emcee and/or reception venue is always a must. Sometimes brides
will look upon this task as overwhelming and put it off until the very
last minute. Some itineraries are several pages while others are quite
short. Regardless of the length or wording, they all want to know when and
if you would like to do following six things.
- Grand Entrance
- First Dances
- Cake Cutting
- Garter / Bouquet toss
- Run through the bubbles
It's these six things that make a wedding
reception different than any other party. You are always free to
customize, add to or delete any of the above, but this is the core of
every reception questionnaire.
You should be able to decide you order of
events in about 10 minutes. Compared to everything else, it's quite a
simple task. So, don't let a four-page itinerary scare you, it's still
only asking six simple questions!
Best of Luck!
