Wedding Detail: Reception

Happy Wedding Wednesday! Today I am sharing details about our reception! We held our wedding ceremony and reception on the same site – the Celebration Farm in Iowa City, IA. They have two barns on the property and we had our reception in the Timber Frame. A beautiful wood barn with an upstairs loft.

I loved our backdrop I ordered off of Etsy! I highly recommend it and it turned out matching our flowers perfectly right?

We kept the centerpieces simple The venue had the wood chargers already and I also purchased the paper table numbers on Etsy!

Absolutely loved our head table arrangement.

Don’t forget a table set up for cards and guest book. Adding a picture of the couple and a glass of flowers is great touch as well!

I bought a seating chart template off of Easy but then printed it poster size at Walgreens for about $20.

Tip: try and set up the day before if you can! I am glad that we were able to so everything was ready on the day of! Also see what the venue will set up for you as well. (Ours did the table and chairs and linens and serve ware.)

Don’t forget to make a wedding hashtag!

Tip: Have a bar menu printed out so that people can decide what they want ahead of time, then they don’t have to ask the bartender what is available.

Tip: We went straight into our first dance right after our introduction, before dinner. We liked doing it in this order.

Don’t forget the plan a time to cut your cake so the important people (like the photographer) don’t miss it! We had just a small cake for us to cut but then served cupcakes for everyone else.

We are so grateful for everyone who spent the entire day celebrating us in this beautiful venue!

Thanks for catching up!
