If you are recently engaged and are planning a wedding, then you may be interested in learning more about the many ways to have a unique ceremony and reception that will stay in your guests’ memories forever. With many weddings coming up this summer, especially in June, which is the most popular month to get married and which accounts for 15% of all weddings, it is a great idea to brush up on some of the ways to make a wedding stand out. Keep reading for a list of ideas that will be sure to shock and please all of the guests at your wedding.
1. Ask your guests to wear crazy colors.
This is a great idea to make people remember your ceremony, because most people will tend to wear traditional colors to a wedding unless instructed to do otherwise. While the bride and groom will usually stick to traditional colors of a black suit for him and ivory and white for her, it can add a lot of fun to your wedding photos if the guests are dressed in colorful patterns that are unexpected.
2.Consider using long lasting sparklers at the reception.
A conventional sparkler lasts for about 45 seconds, so if you hand out wire sparklers to the guests at your wedding, then you will have lots of spectacle with people waving them around to create beautiful patterns. If you are wondering how many long lasting sparklers to order, then you should get enough for about 75% of the guests at your weddings, and this will be sufficient if you are planning to use the sparklers during the send off or at the end of the ceremony. Quality wedding sparklers are a great and inexpensive way to add a fun, personalized touch to your wedding, so make sure that you do your research and get the best brand of long lasting sparklers that has great reviews.
3. Have an interactive centerpiece.
If you are considering using an interactive centerpiece, then you can do anything from having a beautiful bouquet of flowers that the guests can take home to a personalized vase that states the date of your wedding at the names of you and your partner. Think out of the box, and try to have something that will entertain the guests and stick in their minds when they look back on your wedding day. One option is to have fish tanks in the center of the tables so the guests can watch fish swimming around while socializing with each other. Whatever you do, make sure you read about your idea first so you can get feedback from others who have tried it before.
4. Set up a karaoke area.
Most people tend to hire entertainment for the wedding reception, and while you can still do this, it can be a great option to reserve part of the time for the guests to contribute to the entertainment themselves. People like karaoke, and if you wait until the end of the night to give people a chance to participate, you will be sure to have a lot of takers because people will have had a chance to get to know each other. If you aren’t sure if this is a good idea, bring it up to some of your guests to see what they think and if they would find it to be interesting and fun.
5. Create a signature cocktail.
This is a fun and easy way to show your guests a little bit about what you and your partner enjoy when it comes to cocktails. You should try to choose something that either reflects what you both like, or if you have different preferences then you can even create two unique cocktails that guests can choose to order if they want to try something new. You can consult with a mixologist if you aren’t sure where to begin.
So whether you choose to have long lasting sparklers or customized cocktails, consider these tips when planning your upcoming wedding!
