old fashioned wedding reception ideas

Today I am grateful that my night class was canceled tonight so I got to go home early and catch up on some homework (and who am I kidding--I also got to catch Gossip Girl).

This is a bit random but I thought I would share it. I found Post from Ruffledblog .
This is a very cute wedding reception idea and a LDS wedding to boot.  I really like the sundae bar idea and the photo booth idea.

Jace and Alex’s wedding, captured by Darla Roze Photography, brought the outside in with gorgeous garden details. In addition to the garden feel, there were tons of sweet details like a sundae bar fashioned after an old fashion ice cream parlor, a fun DIY photo booth, and a recurring silhouette motif. 

I am in love with paper laterns. We put lights and lanterns up in the room to give it an outside feel.

How adorable is her Ice Cream Parlour dessert table? You can download the templates courtesy of Amy from Eat Drink Chic blog!

I wanted a photo booth where the guests could put on some vintage props, use picture frames and capture a picture of them at our wedding. The DIY program we used was See Monkey. It was the perfect program to set up using a laptop, camera and tripod and printer. Guest snapped pictures, it printed two sets on a 4×6 sheet. One they left in the guest book with a note to us and the other they took home to remember the fun evening.

Relax and enjoy everything…you plan forever and then in one day its all over, so just enjoy it!

I love this post! I am getting married next June and want to do a vintage theme. I love the photo booth idea, I have seen it with renting an actual booth but never the DIY style. How exactly did you set it up? Did someone facilitate it or did the guests do it themselves?

What stunning old fashioned wedding reception ideas!! I was just in need of exact stuff. Actually we want to have a stylish old fashioned theme for our reception party and here got plenty of inspirations. Now we would decide on one of these and then will book the rental reception party venue according to the theme.
