But the reception isn't only about impressing your friends and family with the VIP treatment, it's about reflecting your personal style as a couple.

Whether you're going for classic romance, understated elegance or a mod night club feel, check out the following decoration ideas to help get you started on planning the perfect wedding reception.
- As your guests get out of their cars and enter the reception, give them a hint of what's to come by decorating the entryway path.

- Above all, make sure that the outdoor area they see upon arrival is clean and any landscape is neatly manicured.
