A bride will put a lot of thought into the type of decorations that are used on the tables where guests will sit during the after wedding celebrations in the reception hall. The bride might choose to place a guest book at the entrance so that everyone who enters can see it and sign their names. Some might choose to leave small comments that are meant to be best wishes for the happy couple on their special day, and the bride will ensure that a decorative pen is posted for all guest to use.
One special table in the room will be reserved for the Bride and Groom. This table will boast large flower arrangements and place settings for every member of the wedding party. The bridesmaids and groomsmen will use crystal goblets to toast the happy couple and then make comments that wish them a happy future together. The Bride and Groom will add their own favors to the table in the form of presents for all who participated in the wedding procession.
Some reception tables will be decorated with ribbons and bows and many boxes encased in shiny wrapping paper. The silver and white wrappers could be accompanied by gift bags that are filled with various colors of tissue paper. More than one table will be assigned for this purpose because every guest will bring a wedding gift for the happy couple and as they fill up, the decorative theme for the wedding will inspire many exclamations from the people that pass by.
