A wide range of reception services to ensure your big day runs smoothly

Ceremony and reception services encompass some of the little extras you can add to your wedding day to help it to run smoothly and make an impression.

Perhaps you have a big family and will therefore have lots of young children on the day, so hiring child care specialists or even a staffed soft play area can help to alleviate some of the concerns for parents and give them the opportunity to relax a little and enjoy the day.

To keep the day running on schedule you could also consider hiring a toastmaster who can help to introduce speakers, make announcements and propose toasts. A dedicated toastmaster, or master of ceremonies, can take some of the pressure off the groom or groomsmen and make sure that none of your important communication is missed.

Other assistants you may want to consider hiring, depending on your venue and requirements, could include waiting and bar staff and security – or perhaps even a dance instructor to help you brush up for your first shimmy around the dancefloor as newlyweds!

Or if you’re after a bit of a spectacle think about talking to fireworks providers to end your evening reception with a bang. Discover ideas like these and more at The National Wedding Show – here’s how to make the most of your visit.
