Sacramento Reception Halls & Venues

Planning the Perfect Wedding Party

Of course we want you to have fun at your own wedding. But as Sacramento's Top Party Venue hosts point out, making your wedding a fun experience for guests is a major component to pulling off a successful wedding. "There are probably 50 to 250 more people who are also choosing to spend five-plus hours with you, so it is important to plan for their good times.  Here's how to ensure that yours is the most fun wedding reception your guests will ever attend — trust us.

Are you a classic?

Delicate white florals, plenty of greenery, light linens, and minimal decor: These tried and true wedding details will never go out of style. And if you're a bride who prefers timelessness over trends, we suggest planning your ceremony and reception in a classic wedding style. You won't have to worry about photos looking dated: When you and your partner look back on your wedding photos decades from now, you'll still be madly in love with these enduring wedding ideas.

Sacramento Bride, Elizebeth Anderson, suggests that whether your wedding reception is indoors or outside, there are so many unique ways to spruce up your wedding décor. Some of our favorites include unexpected uses of color for your silverware (hint: rose gold), streamers hanging from the ceiling, or updated centerpieces (like candelabras draped with ivy). From simple accents to whimsy details, your wedding décor will be anything but boring.

Placer County's unique communities, Roseville, Rocklin, Granite Bay and more offer many rustic locations. Auburn bride, Cameron Davis, loved her outdoor hills reception with the sparkling lights of Sacramento down below.

1. Keep your guests comfortable.


For example, if you're hosting an outdoor fête with a chance of serious heat on the side, consider greeting your guests with cold lemonade or tea. Conversely, winter wedding guests would love a cup of hot cider or cocoa when they arrive, she says. "A basket of flip flops near the dance floor is a much appreciated gift for your guests' tired, dancing feet," she adds. "And be ready with amenities in the restrooms full of items that your guests might need including mints, safety pins, and a sewing kit. These little extras will make your guests feel well taken care of."


Sacramento Wedding Videography Ideas


A Documentary-Style Wedding Video

This mix of sweeping artistic angles and sound bites from your wedding day (your bridesmaids laughing while you're getting ready, his dad's toast) is one of the best ways to convey what it was like to actually be at your Sacramento wedding.


A Movie-Inspired Save-the-Date Video

Base your save-the-date video off of your favorite movie style (in this case, Wes Anderson) for a totally personalized look. With a video camera and a little bit of editing know-how, you (or even better, your videographer) can create a short video to send to family and friends or to post on your wedding website.

Must-Have Wedding Shots


There is only one first kiss at the end of the ceremony. If you miss it, there is no re-do. Good planning puts you in the right place to capture these must-have moments.


Traditional wedding video shots that should be part of every wedding video include:
