Want some unique ideas for your reception?
Here are some great ideas!
Yeah, you read right. We're talking completely customized chocolate or even rice paper-made menus. Set them on top of each guest's place setting and remind guests not to spoil their appetites with chocolate before dinner!
We're not talking about the usual cheese fondue option. Instead, during the cocktail hour, set up a table with several types of vinegar, bread, and cheese, for instance, and allow your guests to create their own appetizer. Not into vinegar? Try it with chips and dip or even salsas that vary in spiciness.
Comfort food has been popular at weddings for years, but now we're noticing a slight change, and it's all about the presentation. Try French fries wrapped in monogrammed paper or mini burgers served with fresh flower garnish.
Instead of the expected passed hors d'oeuvres, ask your caterer about a more hands-on option. A few fun ideas: have a raw bar with a chef shucking oysters or a guacamole and chips bar with a chef chopping avocados and muddling the ingredients in front of everyone. Think of it as your other other bar.
Keep your guests caffeinated and out on the dance floor with coffee-infused desserts. Order espresso-spiked brownies or even Starbucks-inspired coffee dessert drinks like Frappuccinos piled high with homemade whipped cream. Include a few decaf options too, like chocolate milk shake shots or even flavored frothed milk.
It doesn't matter if your wedding is in Florida or Minnesota -- you can still bring a bit of the tropics to your cocktail hour or even your after-party. Keep your luau bar from getting too kitschy by keeping the leis and plastic flowers to a minimum. Instead, opt for fruity drinks served in thin glasses and tropical flowers, like hibiscus, to garnish the food.
Guess what? You can still have a "cake cutting" even if you're slicing through a stack of donuts. Serve up retro classics like cream and jelly filled varieties, plus new treats we've seen, like white chocolate and almond or coconut and mango donuts.
Give your guests the chance to customize their own desserts. Set up a s'mores station near an outside fire pit, or, for a more formal wedding, have a waiter serve ice cream and offer a variety of toppings for guests to choose from.
Thank you to The Knot for these great ideas!

Well....this is the week! Your Perfect Day is going to Sanibel Island, FL for our 1st destination wedding of the year! We are super excited to be a part of Brittany & Andy's wedding!
We met this couple back in March when they first picked their wedding site! After much discuss, they decided they needed a little help from Your Perfect Day to make sure their wedding day went as planned! We were excited to be able to travel to such a gorgeous place with such a gorgeous couple!
The wedding ceremony & reception will be at the Waterside Inn, right on the beach! The couple will be married under a gorgeous set-up of bamboo & tulle! Your Perfect Day will be providing their centerpieces that will consist of cylinder vases, pink ribbon, sand, candles and shells!
We are looking forward to working with many new vendors but we do get to work with Ben at DerksWorks.com again (we had a wedding with him last year)!
We will be sure to post lots of pictures of the ceremony & reception!
Your Perfect Day will travel anywhere you want us to go! We want you to have the a stress-free wedding day and would love to be your wedding coordinator...regardless of where you are at!

Your Perfect Day was the hero of this past weekend's bridal show. The owner of Wedding Dreams called us on Wednesday with some bad news. Her trailer with all the decorations had been stolen.....3 days before their BIG show. They wanted to know if we would provide all the decorations for their bridal show! Of course, we said "YES!"
The YPD crew set up all our decorations on Saturday and came back on Sunday to pass out coupons to all that attended. The response we received was AMAZING! Everyone loved our decorations and we even booked a few weddings that day! Here are some of the pictures of what we had on display!
