As a bride, you, your planner and your florist will spend hours working on the perfect look for your reception. The linens, the flowers, the candles, the china all adds up to the wow your guests experience entering the room. You are so excited to see it all come to together.But guess what, you my dear bride will not see it. At least not in all its perfect glory. By the time you and your groom are announced into the room, guests will have already moved chairs around, put purses on the tables, drink glasses will litter the landscape, dirty napkins will be crushed and laying around. Which brings me to the tip of the day, make sure someone, your photographer, your planner, your friend, someone gets you pictures of the room set as your guests see it when they enter.
I can hear you say, “Oh, no problem my photographer will get that”. Well, I can tell you that unless your ceremony and your reception are in the same building, 99% of the time this isn’t going to happen. The photographer is getting pictures of you getting ready, of the ceremony and family pictures afterwards. He does not have the time to stop that and run over to the reception site for a few set up pictures. For Willrich Brides we have a photographer on staff that takes these shots that we later send to our brides. If you don’t have that luxury, then make sure someone is assigned the task.
