How to Prevent Your Guests from Leaving Your Wedding Reception Too Early

How to Prevent Your Guests from Leaving Your Wedding Reception Too Early

There’s nothing quite like watching the people you love the most dancing, laughing, and having a goodtime at your wedding. The last thing you want is for your guests to leave early – this is a celebration after all.

If you want to make sure that your guests stay until the very last song, here are a few things that you should keep in mind:

The volume.

If the music is so loud that the people who aren’t dancing can’t even have a conversation, you may see some of your guests slipping out early. Make sure that your band and DJ are playing at a volume that’s acceptable for the size of the venue.  Also be careful to sit older guests close to the speakers.

The music.

This is your wedding and you should absolutely play the music that you want to hear but you may also want to keep your guests in mind too. If you’re going to be playing music that others can’t dance to or are planning to stick to a very specific genre, a few of your guests might not stay until the end.

The cake.

Most guests won’t stay after the bride and groom cut the cake, so try not to do it too early or you could end up with a slightly smaller group of people on the dance floor afterward.

The food and drinks.

Your guests are there to eat, drink and have a good time, so make surethat you don’t run out of food, and especially drinks, too early in the evening. This applies to both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Over and above this, your guests really could just be tired, have work in the morning or need to get theirkids to bed. Don’t take your guests leaving early too personally. Rather focus on the celebrations, your partner and the guests that are still enjoying themselves.

Hi, I'm Rebecca Anne.

When you come on a shoot with me, I am going to tell you that you need to break down any walls preventing me from capturing you. If you truly want the most amazing photos together, you have to let me capture them. I can put you in every Pinterest pose in the book, but do you know how those poses were created? Couples naturally being themselves together. And so let's go on on a date together and I'll be the third wheel (slightly awkwardly) capturing your best moments together. And maybe we'll become besties in the process too.
