Wedding Reception Checklist – Evening

Your wedding reception is a party that is usually held in the evening after your wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast. This may be at the wedding venue that you’ve had throughout the day, or you might pick a completely different venue to party at!

Lots of couples will use this part of the day to invite friends and family that couldn’t be there during the day due to numbers etc.

Depending on your budget, you’ll find lots of fun activities to plan for you and your guests! Most will have a buffet and a bar open where guests pay for their own drinks. Some couples like to have an open bar or tokens to give the guest their first drink free.

When it comes to planning your evening reception, there are plenty of ways to keep your guests entertained! Some of our favourite ideas are –

DJ or Band

Casino Tables

Candy Cart


Bouncy Castle ( for kids and adults!)

Dessert Table


Singing Waiters

Prosecco Bar

Don’t forget to save a part of the evening for the first dance and also to throw the bouquet!

This checklist is to remind you of anything you might forget for your evening party.

We included the PDF for the evening reception checklist for you to print at home!
