Designing a Wedding Reception Program
How to run a wedding reception program entails practical know-how and observations from wedding program witnessed. It is not necessary to follow standard flow common to weddings but a smooth reel from start to end with the help of the couple’s ideas can be managed smoothly.
Remember not to make the wedding reception program too long or short. The important thing is cropping the flow from the most important parts then the program climax for that end bang.

What is next after the wedding affair?
Our best wishes and prayers for the newly married couple that they will love each other forever.
When I host a wedding reception program, I do not ascertain myself as the sphere of regard. I am there to steer the flow for a smooth transition of an activity to another not spending time snapping jokes or shouting my communique to the top of my voice. I am there making guests at ease and the couple at their right toes at all times. I am there making things smoothly at the handle.
I do not have the deepest voice others forcefully do but I am careful of what comes out from my mouth. I still believe that less talk, less mistakes. But words must be thick set and strong. That I strive to be second to none. It is not my thing to bellow every word I say but play up what is important and being a trained singer knows speaking in waves.
There is much to improve and the first brave person to remind my foibles squarely at my face is my brother and rouse me to realize that I have to be more careful.
I love the call and I want to reiterate that I am there not to steal the show but frame one.
