Suggestions for reception timeline: host, games, at reception? ..

Hi community!


Still new to planning & being a member on WeddingWire 馃ス My fianc茅 and I are in the final stages of booking our venue and now comes the part of the timeline/schedule for the reception..Do you have any suggestion(s) .. DJ, host or games? My fianc茅 said we can just have someone in charge of music (Spotify playlist)..It鈥檚 just I don鈥檛 feel comfortable having one of our guests be in charge.. As for host:I鈥檓 thinking of having someone just call out the bridal party crew (at the beginning when we enter) and the possibility if we will have games .. the first dance, dad and daughter dance, speeches, etc .. I know there will be a 1 hour cocktail at the beginning, 4 hours(?) dinner and the rest of the night after cutting the cake (open bar) ..
I do apologize for all my ramblingThank you community 馃檹馃徑鉂わ笍

    My husband and I had 39 people at our wedding and we still hired a DJ. Didn't have to worth about a single thing all day and he also did our ceremony music as well

    My FH and I both agreed we did not want to put any of our guests to work on our day. We have approximately 100 guests and we requested our DJ be our MC as well. He can pronounce us in, do speech introductions, go over the games, and make any necessary announcements as the evening goes on.

    I have a small wedding 45 people. I am having spotify on shuffle and timed enough songs for the 6 hours we will be there. We are having games outside provided by the venue, so you can either dance or play games, or sit around and chat with everyone.

    I also have a Master of ceremony My best friends husband, he will do the announcements. and if anything happens to the music he just has to go and hit shuffle.

    I also have play lists set, 1. walk down the aisle, 2 exit song, 3 first dance, 4 parents dance. 5 bouquet toss. so he doesn't have to search for it.

    Hi Nbcj!


    Thanks for your suggestion! My wedding will be around 40-50 guests at the most .. as we want an intimate wedding.. But you are right with having someone with ideas as same with me I am half half a DIY girlie haha but at the same time I sometimes have no ideas 馃槄 I鈥檒l reach out to some Dj/MC and there鈥檚 one that I know as well too
    Many thanks!

    Hey! Depending on how big your wedding is + budget. But what we did for ours - with tight budget and 100 guests. We actually hired a DJ and MC that has reasonable rates. With their services, that includes games and props (if needed) i鈥檓 not a DIY girlie, so i鈥檇 rather pay to have someone do it than trying to figure out the games part and music 鈽猴笍
