From the moment you wake up on your wedding day, you are running in a dozen different directions, moving at lightening speed. Once the wedding ceremony is over, you can relax, right? Wrong! When you arrive at the reception, everyone is eagerly waiting to talk to you. Some people have traveled great distances, others have not had an opportunity to talk to you in weeks since you have been so busy, and some do not pay attention to all the people trying to get your attention.

Attending to guests at your reception takes a lot of energy and effort. In fact, at times it can be overwhelming. Your goal is to talk with everyone, thanking them for attending your wedding and for their support. You want guests to know you appreciate them, and somehow, make them feel special. The problem is that you are physically and emotionally exhausted. Even though your adrenalin is pumping, a nice, soft bed to fall asleep in sounds good.

You need to understand and accept that you will never please everyone, and you will not have the time or energy to sit down with guest and have a full-blown conversation, even though you would like to. Think of it this way, what other event in life brings all of the people you love and care for together in one place. The answer is none, which is why at your reception, you want to take time with each person but in reality, your "conversations" may only be a hug, "Congratulations", and "I love you" before moving on to the next person.

You are just one person facing a hundred or more, all with the goal of taking some of your time. Obviously, the bride and groom are the focus and everyone wants to talk with them. Do not feel frustrated or as though you are failing if you cannot spend more than five minutes with any one person. For large weddings, use the receiving line and as people leave the church heading to the reception hall, they will pass by both bride and groom. A receiving line only gives you a few brief seconds, but at least every person gets a hug and a spoken word.

A wedding reception is physically demanding. To keep your energy at a healthy level, munch on cheese or other proteins that can boost your energy level. Every wedding has people that have never met the bride or groom. When you see someone, you do not know, introduce yourself and thank him or her for coming to your wedding. Do the best you can and view your reception as an excellent opportunity instead of an obligation. This too is a part of your wedding celebration so cherish each moment and person.
