Wedding Reception Décor

Your wedding reception is a place to celebrate with friends and family. Accenting the room with décor that matches your unique style and wedding theme will definitely grab the attention of your guests and create a magical atmosphere.

Your guest's tables are the perfect place to let your creativity run wild. By incorporating unique centerpieces, place card holders, linens, table numbers and favors you can create a setting that will keep your guests talking.

Here are some of my favorites you can find at The Wedding Outlet . . .

These adorable lanterns shown below can be used as centerpieces, favors or perfect for an outdoor wedding reception or ceremony to light the way for your guests. I absolutely love the idea of candles during any part of the celebration. I think it creates such a romantic atmosphere.Above Images:

There is a large variety of styles to chose from when selecting your place cards. The selection includes uniquely styled holders that fit with any type of wedding theme as well as more traditional frames and holders. Place cards holders can also be used as favors too. Some of my favorites shown below can be used after the wedding to hold photos, be used at a special occasion dinner or displayed as a decoration during the holidays.Above Images:

Lastly, there are the favors that are displayed at your guests seats. It is customary to acknowledge the presence of your guests with a wedding favor. There is a wide selection of unique favors to say thank you to the ones who have helped celebrate you and your special day. Your guests will be delighted to go home with a special favor from you. Consider a themed wedding favor, useful favor, or fill favor boxes with candy treats. Once you've selected your favor, don't forget to add a personal tag to make it complete.Above Images:
