What is your favorite part of attending a wedding reception?
What is your favorite part of attending a wedding reception? Some might say catching up with old friends or reconnecting with family members. Others might say just being a part of such an important step in the couple’s life (the beginning of their new life together) is their favorite. The selection of food and beverages is often an out of the ordinary treat, so even this can be mentioned as a “favorite part” among guests. What about the entertainment / dancing portion of the evening? In my opinion, this is becoming more and more of the icing on the cake in regards to wedding receptions. Couples are becoming more aware of how important it is to have entertainment for their guests. DJ’s or live bands are the most popular choice, but each individual entertainer usually has a set of specifications that must be met for maximum results. When you are investigating wedding reception venues, make sure to have an idea of what type of entertainment you are leaning towards….because setup options can make or break how everything translates to your guests. The traditional “rules” do not typically apply anymore. Abstract setups, large dance floors, and lighting/special effects all come into play in order to create an experience beyond a typical “dance”. Be certain to ask the reception venues if they have any restrictions in regards to the aspects your entertainment is going to include before you sign a contract/agreement with them. Take it one step further, and also come prepared with any other specific questions or special needs your entertainment might require. It is always beneficial to be proactive rather than reactive. Here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center, we are happy to provide our wedding receptions with very large dance floors (18×30 in size, and they are beautiful parquet wood) to enhance their wedding dance, and our ceiling height allows for unique options like large balloon drops! Sufficient amount of space for everyone to move about the room and tear it up on the dance floor, paired with the right entertainment is a recipe for an unforgettable event!
