There are so man
y different ways to make your wedding day fun, unique and memorable.
Your reception is where some of the best memories of the day are made, with photo opportunities galore.
If you’re looking for ways to ensure that your wedding reception will be talked about for months to come, here are a few fun ideas that you’ll definitely want to steal:
Create a signature cocktail
Get the celebrations off to a classy start by creating a signature cocktail for your wedding. Use your personalities as a couple as a guideline and chat to a mixology pro about some of the options. Your guests will love the unique options and it will help kick your reception into high gear.
Give them cake to-go
If you will be serving other desserts at the reception but would still like to give your guests a slice of wedding cake, why not purchase a few custom cardboard boxes that your guests can use to take some sugary goodness home with them.
Pair up table numbers and photos
Give your guests a glimpse into your pasts by creating custom table numbers that include photos of you and your partner at that specific age.
Customize your coasters
Get your guests to write down their words of wisdom on custom-printed coasters that you can scatter on the tables.
Create your own Instagram hashtag
Hundreds of photos will be taken at your wedding and sometimes the best shots are taken by your guests. To make sure that you don’t miss out on any of these amazing moments and memories, create your own Instagram hashtag and display it at the reception for all to use.
Change up the garter toss
Don’t want to simply toss your garter into the crowd? Change things up a bit by placing it on a football and get your husband to toss that into the crowd instead.
Get them dancing
Add a touch of fun to your reception and get more people to dance by assigning a song or lyric to each table. When the DJ plays that particular song, the entire table needs to get up and dance.
Add a DIY beer bar
Are you and your partner fans of a cold beer? Why not hire out a DIY beer bar where your guests can help themselves. Add one or two different varieties and a couple of mason jars and you’re good to go.
Even the bathrooms can be fun
Add a quirky touch to the reception bathrooms by adding a funny photo of each of you on the bathroom doors.
Everyone loves ice cream
Instead of serving up traditional desserts or opting for a DIY candy bar, why not change things up by having an ice cream bar instead? Throw in a few different ice cream flavors and toppings and you won’t be able to keep your guests away.
When it comes to planning your wedding reception, decide what’s most important to you as a couple and build on that. You can’t go wrong.
