You want to make sure that your wedding reception showcases your unique style and taste. Today we have a list of unique and chic wedding reception ideas that will leave a lasting impression on your guests.

Book a venue with an outdoor reception lounge.

The patio and firepit at the Sherwood Chalet at Forest Lodge create the perfect, quaint setting for your guests to enjoy the open, fresh air of the outdoors. This spot offers a perfect opportunity for guests to take a break from all of the dancing and chat with their friends. Your guests will not feel left out at this outdoor venue, with a full bar, cigar bar accommodations, and food service, your guests may never want to leave. 

Have a Photo Booth.

Don’t let the photographer have all of the fun. Let your guests show their fun side in the photo booth with their companions and loved ones. These will be great pieces of memorabilia for your special day and will have your guests constantly reminiscing on the great and unique wedding reception that you and your partner hosted at The Sherwood Chalet at Forest Lodge. You can even add another unique twist with the props and backdrop of the booth.

Creative Escort Cards.

Have fun with your guest escort cards. Rather than a simple piece of folded paper, welcome them to your reception with a small thank you token. For example, a small succulent is a great idea if you are looking for a rustic chic wedding. Another great, more modern idea, is a cake pop with a name tag and table number wrapped around the bottom. Start the night off with a sweet treat or cute plant to let your guests know the night to come will surely be unique and chic.

Add a Bubbly Bar

What is a reception without a champagne toast? Let your guests customize their champagne by creating a DIY bar filled with champagne, fresh fruits, fresh herbs, and flavored ice cubes. Your guests will be able to create a delectable and unique champagne mix to toast to the newlyweds and make the champagne toast extremely unique and chic!

Children Activities 

Think of the children that will be attending your reception and add a small touch or two to the table to keep them occupied. This will allow the parents and other guests to truly enjoy the night without having to keep the kids busy. Some ideas include; crayons on the tables with a unique and chic printout that will match the venue and keep the youngsters entertained

Fill the night with Confetti

Make the first dance extra special and provide your guests with small bottles of confetti. When you and your partner get up to have your first dance your venue will be filled with colors and confetti! We love this unique and chic wedding idea to welcome in the newlywed couple!

Celebratory Ribbon Wands or Lights

Want to add a chic vibe to your wedding pictures? Provide your guests with ribbon wands or handheld lights to add to the dancy party and make the night look extra special in the photos. You can even make it a special send-off celebration when you and your newlywed partner leave the reception on the way to your honeymoon!
