In order for us to respond, please clarify:
What is the nature of the wedding reception you are referring to?
Is your query regarding the banquet with various rituals and traditions prepared by the bride or the groom, or both, jointly; or the feast arranged by the bride as hospitality to those attending the Nikah (marriage ceremony)?
And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
