Wedding Reception Q&As

Answers to your questions about toasting, timing, and traditional reception rites and rituals.

Q: Where should we place our favors? We’re giving our guests small bottles of wine, and we’re not sure whether to put them on the reception tables or display all of them on their own. 

A: It’s up to the two of you to decide which presentation appeals to you most. You can put a bottle at each guest’s place setting on the reception tables, or all the bottles can be prettily arranged on a separate table near the door. That way, guests can take one as they leave. Just be sure that someone monitors the table, so people don’t help themselves to more than one favor.
