Pre-Reception Music

The ‘pre-reception’ or ‘drinks reception’ as it is sometimes called, is a part of the day which many couples don’t actually get to experience as they are away taking photos for the majority of the 2 to 3 hours. However, it can be the slowest part of the day for your guests. Providing live pre-reception music keeps your guests entertained and maximizes the party atmosphere while they mingle and enjoy the champagne. When choosing your pre-reception entertainment, it is important to consider exactly what you want…

Do you want relaxing background music? or a livelier interactive band? It is also important to consider which type of music will best suit your venue. Will your pre-reception be held in a large welcome area? or a smaller reception area? Will the guests be then moved to the bar area for the majority of the pre-reception? Kayla offers 3 different choices of pre-reception entertainment to suit every venue, wedding size and the musical taste of every couple…
