What are the meanings for a reception after a wedding?

To feast and celebrate your union the story goes the more everyone eats the happier the couple will be. Certain dishes are normally prepared for the feast with wine or champagne.

It is for family and friends to " receive" the couple as married....then a celebration ensues.

It's just what people do after the ceremony so others can be closer to each other and enjoy time together.

Weddings used to involve a lot of uncomfortable travel, usually by horseback or carriage over bumpy roads. It was the custom to host a meal for these wearing travelers before sending them back onto the road after the ceremony. This transmogrified into the spectacles we see at some modern weddings.

To celebrate the wedding. To thank your guests for coming.

Not sure what you're asking... the "meanings for a reception"? Are you asking "why is there a reception after a wedding?" or are you asking the reason for the different customs, like the wedding cake, garter toss, etc?
