Elements of a Traditional Wedding Reception


The following is a list of traditional wedding reception elements. They may be arranged or edited to suite the styles of the newly married couple.The master of ceremonies call all the married couples to the dance floor. He/she then calls out "all couples married less than one day please leave the dance floor", followed by "all couples married less than five years please leave the dance floor", etc., etc. The bouquet is awarded by the couple married the longest. It often works out that the grandparents of the bride or groom are the recipients of this honorable prize. Upon receiving the bouquet, the longest married couple is asked to give the newlywed couple words of advise for a healthy and life-long partnership.

The master of ceremonies may then ask that the two couples share a special dance together.
