Wedding reception ideas......

I have finally arrived home after our whirlwind wedding and honeymoon overseas. Now I get to plan the reception part of it. I know it all sounds a little backwards, having the wedding already and the reception weeks later, but my "now" husband and I decided to elope to NYC. It's taking me a while to get used to calling him that! Its also taking me a while to adjust to my new surname and being a Mrs rather than a Miss. Its not something that I really thought about before hand, but I have had the same name all my life, it may take some time to adjust. I must admit I do like the change though. Anyway, I completely went off on a tangent! Where was I? Oh yeah that's right, we wanted to have an intimate ceremony somewhere different and exciting. We both love New York and we have been there a few times already so we thought it would be the perfect setting for our wedding day. The ceremony was held in Central park and it was such a magical experience. It was also very hot and full of tourists. But it all added to the excitement of the whole day. Now the fun part begins. The party! We have decided to have an intimate get together at our house with our close family and friends, but I still want it to feel like a wedding. I have started looking for some inspiration and I thought I would share some lovely wedding pics I found. I am also curious to hear if you have any great ideas or interesting wedding experiences?

This picture is actually of a baby shower but I love the idea of having sweet little treats.

The paper cylinder is a great way to make anything look pretty.

love white platters + fruit skewers + glass juice bottles

Everyone loves a cupcake!

Having games is a great way to entertain your guests.

Homemade goodies add a personalized touch.

I have spent hours on Style me Pretty finding inspiration, I could have shown you so much more but I thought I might be getting a little to carried away. I would love to hear your thoughts?


  1. Gosh! So much here. What is very fashionable at the moment are the photo booths combined with chalk boards for guests to write notes. They look a heap of fun!

    Take care not to go too pink, some people have regretted this looking back. All of those images are beautiful.
