19 Apr How much reception coverage do you need?
When you stop for a moment to think about it, your wedding reception represents close to 70% of your entire wedding day festivities.
In this post, we explore:
- What happens at a wedding reception?
- What couples report after their wedding?
- Is reception coverage needed at all?
Firstly let’s think about what happens during a reception. When you stop for a moment to think about it, your wedding reception represents close to 70% of your entire wedding day festivities. A lot happens during a standard 5 or 6 hours reception too. Probably more than you first considered.
Okay, let’s break down the humble wedding reception into all it’s important parts so you can visualise your entire reception. We’ll look it from the standard MMG default shot list:
It’s a personal decision that’s different for every couple. But I will leave you with this thought…. So much planning, so much time, so much effort and money goes into a wedding. Friends and family come from near and far to celebrate your union. You have hair and makeup, and put more effort into looking gorgeous than any other day in your life. You buy dresses and hire suits and cars. You provide a feast for your entire guest list and even have an exotic cake too. WHY do all of that, and not have a decent memory of your complete day? And I mean complete, including your entire reception. I hope that one day you will thank me for this advice.
