Wedding parties are a great time to come up with some unique ideas and show your personality. If you want to throw a party your guests will never forget, keep some of these ideas in mind during your planning.
Letting Everyone Get The Perfect Picture
We know everyone wants a picture with the bride and groom, but sometimes it’s just not possible with a large wedding party. Instead, add a life-size standee at your wedding party and guests can get that perfect picture with the happy couple throughout the evening. For some extra fun, you can even add your own voice-recorded message thanking your guests for celebrating with you.
Another great way to let everyone have some fun with pictures is to set up a wedding photo booth. You can stock it with fun props, great backdrops, and personalized signs. With such a fun display, it might be hard to keep guests out!
Putting Together a Children’s Table
The adults have plenty of ways to keep themselves entertained at your wedding party, but don’t forget about keeping the children happy as well. While many people used to consider the children’s table a neglected afterthought, you can make it a place where everyone wants to hang out. By setting up a special table with coloring books, puzzles, and games, you can make sure that both children and adults have a good time.
Setting Up a Cookie Table
Whether it’s a lovely accompaniment to the cake table or a unique idea for wedding favors, a cookie table will keep all your guests happy (and full). You can stick with the basics, like butterballs and lady locks, or you can use wedding cookie cutters to add a little something extra to your sugar cookies. You can also stack personalized cookie tins at the end of the table so guests can load up on their favorite cookies and take home a wonderful reminder of your special day.
Stocking a Candy Buffet
Another sweet way to give everyone a good time and thank them for coming is to set up a candy buffet. Tie in the colors of your wedding to your table and then stock it with bags, candy jars, and tongs. To save some money filling up your candy buffet, use some jars that seem tall because of stems or stands. Also, stock your biggest jars with the least expensive candy, and your smallest jars with the most expensive candy.
Having a Themed Party
From a beach wedding to a romantic night in Paris, your guests will love a themed wedding party. You can communicate your theme ahead of time with the invitations. That way, if you want an easy dress code for your guests — such as black and white or beach casual —they’ll have plenty of time to find the perfect outfit. The roaring 20s is always a popular theme but you can also base your theme around the time of year you’re having your wedding. For example, winter weddings can have a Russian theme while autumn weddings are perfect for apple orchard themes.
If you want a wedding party that everyone will remember, then you should use some of these great ideas. Each is a perfect way to celebrate such a fun and love-filled event.
