After the difficult task of picking your reception venue, the next steps are rather mundane!

The steps you need to plan for are:

What time of day?
How long?
How many people?
Decorations: flowers, candles, fabric, lighting?
Food: menu, sit down, buffet, light, heavy?
Alcohol: to have or have not!
Open bar or cash bar or combination?
Arrangement of tables?
Types and colors of linens?
Lighting?
Seating charts: keeping people happy!
Dance songs?
DJ or Band?
Schedule of events during the reception?
Photos you wish to have at the reception?
Private times before or after the ceremony?
Final dance song?
How do you wish to exit: carried out, bubbles, sparklers, bird seed, rice, limo?

Obviously there are a thousand details to work out, but the above list can act as a general guide to planning your perfect wedding reception!
