A wedding should reflect you and your partner. The following are unique ideas to surprise your wedding guests to give them memories they won’t soon forget. It’s a fun way to display the quirky and unusual things about yourselves as a couple.
This idea isn’t only for the bride. Who says the groom can’t change outfits too? If you’re the bride, consider changing into a gown that’s shorter and perfect for dancing the night away or even into a suit. Make yourself comfortable for your reception.
If you’re the groom, change into your favorite player’s jersey or out of the tuxedo and into cowboy attire. The same way your other half gets to have fun, so can you.
Maybe you don’t have the budget to purchase a wardrobe change, but you can find dress options with removable skirts or sleeves. Boom! Two outfits for the price of one, and you’ll leave the guests talking for weeks.
Forgo the Typical Bouquet Toss
Are you interested in adding a unique spin to a wedding tradition? There are no rules when it comes to your wedding. Why not try:
- Attaching the garter to a football or baseball
- Asking the florist to create a breakaway bouquet so multiple guests can catch one
Not into any toss? Many couples are choosing to get rid of the bouquet and garter toss altogether, so no worries about you changing up traditions.
Fun Wedding Favors
Many wedding guests throw away favors, or they sit in our cabinets, never used. Provide your friends and family with unique wedding favors they can use more than once, or they can eat. A few ideas include:
- Tote bags
- Hot cocoa mix
Ditch the Usual Table Numbers
All guests expect to have assigned seating when attending a wedding reception. How about having some fun with it? Assign each table a song, and when the DJ plays said song, the whole table must get up to dance. It’s not only fun, but it’s also a great way to break the ice and start the party.
Set Up a Campfire
Create a cozy atmosphere outside where guests can mingle and enjoy the outdoors. Set up a s’mores bar where people can try out new combinations of flavors.
Along with chocolate, add:
- Peanut butter cups
- Peppermint patties
- Thin mints
Along with graham crackers, add:
- Butter cookies
- Shortbread cookies
- Fudge Stripe cookies
Have fun with it! There’s no right or wrong way.
Include a Satellite Bar
A satellite bar will serve a specific selection of drinks for your guests that they can’t receive at a regular bar. Fun satellite bar ideas include:
- A sangria catered to the season in which you’re getting married
- A hot chocolate bar (don’t forget all the fixings)
- A cocktail specific to you and your partner
Create a “bar hunt” where you provide clues for guests to find the satellite bar.
The number one thing to remember for your wedding is the love between you and your partner. Create a day filled with unique ideas that will surprise your wedding guests.
