When planning your wedding, one of the main factors of focus is often the wedding breakfast. From the menu and food, to adding personal touches, there are a number of factors to consider, and guest enjoyment is one of the most important. So what are the options for making sure your wedding breakfast isn’t awkward? And how can you make sure your wedding breakfast is a comfortable, fun experience for everyone?
What are the effective options for making sure your wedding breakfast isn’t awkward?
There are a number of different options to consider when thinking about making your wedding breakfast comfortable for everyone and reducing any awkwardness. These options include:
- Designing an effective seating plan
- Adding personal touches
- Singing waiters
Designing an effective seating plan
One of the first things to consider in terms of your wedding breakfast is the seating plan. This will determine which of your guests sit together and so you should be sure to factor in the different dynamics among your guests. Colleagues who work together, or family members who get along for example can benefit from being seated with each other, to ensure conversation flows, and that people feel comfortable.
However, it may also be important to you that your different guests mingle and get to know each other a little. As such, you will need to be sure to strike the right balance between those who know each other, and those who do not, on each table. The right balance can help to foster new connections while preserving the comfort of existing relationships.
Taking into account shared interests, and tailoring the seating arrangements around these, can be a great way to get people talking and to get to know each other.
Adding personal touches
Awkwardness during the wedding breakfast can also be alleviated by adding personal touches. This could include a number of different options, including adding bespoke place cards or wedding favours. These should reflect your personality as a couple and can be a great way to break the ice, and show your appreciation for each guest.
There is no better way to break tension or awkwardness during a wedding breakfast than surprise entertainment, and professional singing waiters can be an outstanding option. A reputable team like us here at the Opera Boys, have the skills and expertise to be able to transform a conventional meal into a memorable experience.
Singing waiters will be disguised as staff at your wedding, maybe even bringing the drinks to add to the rouse. However, they will be ready to perform and sing, at just the right moment, to make a big impact. This will surprise, delight and amaze your guests, and is sure to make your wedding a memorable occasion. Not only will your guests be entertained, they will also enjoy a shared experience that can become a focal point for conversation.
One of the biggest advantages of singing waiters for your wedding breakfast, beyond the element of surprise, is that you can work with them to ensure the performance is tailored to your preferences and requirements, making the performance relevant to you and your spouse.
