Wedding Photographers Share Ideas from Real Wedding Receptions
1. Unique Centerpieces.
Centerpieces have moved beyond flowers and candles and now incorporate much more. Feathers, fruit displays, hurricane lamps, candelabras and bird cages are all alternatives to flowers and very trendy. Mason jars and branches can be added to give your formal affair a more relaxed feel.
2. Unexpected Venues.
Art galleries, museums and theaters have become popular reception spots as couples look for ways to separate from the norm. While they do present more challenges in arranging rentals and catering, the unique venue can be well worth the effort.

4. Show Stopping Cake
Everyone loves cake; especially a wedding cake that stops you in your tracks. A cake that looks (almost) too amazing to eat! Whether you go for elegance, unusual features and delicious flavor, couples are making their wedding cakes memorable.
PRO TIP: Make sure wedding photographer gets a variety of shots of your cake. You may not remember how it tasted, but you’ll want to remember how it looked.
5. The Not (Even Close To) White Wedding Dress
A lot of brides are starting to play with color by experimenting with blush tones and light grays, but some brides are really pushing the envelope with patterned or bold colored gowns. Your wedding dress will make a different in your wedding photos.
PRO TIP: To keep the look “bridal,” keep hair and makeup classic with a simple veil for the ceremony.
6. Choreographed First Dance
Nothing says “We’re in this together” quite like a choreographed dance between you and your spouse. The two of you will no doubt elicit some laughs out on the dance floor, and it’ll inspire your attendees to bust out some moves as well. Tell your wedding DJ about your special first dance plans & your DJ will help make the moment memorable.
