Tips and advice on preparations for your themed wedding reception       

Engaged couples often find themselves brainstorming new and exciting ways to mark their upcoming nuptials and many go all out to impress their guests at the wedding reception.

A finger buffet and a few bottles of fizz just don't cut the mustard anymore and adding a touch of class and individuality is very much the order of the day for modern weddings. This is why more couples are opting for an entirely new feel to their wedding reception and injecting a little fun and frivolity into the proceedings by hosting their very own wedding masquerade ball.

If giving your guests the opportunity to get all dressed up and don a beautifully made mask is something that appeals to you, then here are our top tips for organising a masquerade event and wowing your wedding guests.

Don’t forget the invites!

There’s no point hosting a reception masquerade ball if you don’t tell your guests about it, so don’t forget to add relevant details to your wedding invites.

If you have a theme in mind, make sure that you let your nearest and dearest know well in advance, so they have plenty of time to find the perfect mask to suit the occasion.

If you haven’t got any ideas just yet, take a look at our range of mask themes by occasion for a little inspiration. You can incorporate your theme into the invite itself too, helping to create more of a joined-up, seamless experience.

The happy couple

As the stars of the show, you’ll want to pick the perfect masks to suit your bridal attire way in advance.

Our range of gorgeous wedding masks is available in a wide assortment of styles and colours, so you’re sure to find the perfect mask for you both to wear. You’ll also get a 14-day at home approval on any order from Just Posh Masks, so you can be sure that it’s the perfect accessory for your masquerade ball wedding reception.

Don’t forget the little ones

Even children will want to join in the fun at your masquerade ball evening reception, so if you're worried about them missing out, don't forget that we also stock a wide range of children’s masks that are just ideal for cheeky little faces!

If you also want to keep them entertained during the wedding breakfast, why not provide them with stick-on gems and plain masks for them to decorate while everyone else enjoys the speeches? That’s an activity that’s sure to keep them entertained.
