The warm, relaxed, original mood you want is one of your major concerns throughout the preparations. How stage yourself while helping your guests feel at ease? That is the question!
An endless movie clap
The D-Day is a real scenario with scene changes, moments of emotion or action, duos of actors, plethora of extras. Each scene is punctuated by a specific animation that highlights an aspect of your personality and prints a different pace on the scene that you will live. Never forget that you are the lead actor and director.
The religious ceremony
Without taking anything from the solemnity of the moment, the bride and groom are mixing up the old fashion and are now entering on very rhythmic music that give a very festive tone from the start. In this case, it is often the witnesses who open the ball entering the place of worship with an often rehearsed choreography, and are finally followed by the groom of the bride. The traditional entrance on the arm of Dad is changed, it’s up you to prepare him!
If this style is too offbeat for you, you can opt for the presence of a group of Gospels which still guarantees much effect and cast a sunny light on the wettest of all weddings.
This is the time when families in the broadest sense can be discovered, where friends gather, where the couple are recovering from their emotions. An orchestra and classical influences, reggae or a jazzy atmosphere ease the exchange. Stopping the music signals the end of this stage and the guests not invited to dinner understand that it is time to take leave.
Bet on the mood created during the cocktail and let your friends talk without music that can sometimes interfere with the comfort of the ears! A well thought out seating plan, yes we know it’s not always easy to achieve, will allow the atmosphere to warm up a bit. It’s time for you to move from table to table to thank the friends that are present. If you are afraid of downtime, you can search for a cartoonist whose incisive pencil will crack up even the most serious. Leave it to your friends and witnesses who definitely planned to honor you with their speech or photo montage worthy of the finest feathers and best directors. Enjoy it!
Standard ways of managing the transition from dinner to the opening of the ball are the fireworks, the release of balloons or lanterns. They are still relevant and are a delight for everyone.
