When you are planning a wedding, it is of course all about you and your partner making your vows and having a wonderful, romantic day. However, some people forget that this is also a big event for their friends and family. Adding things to your wedding that make it more enjoyable and memorable for the other people who have come to celebrate can make the difference between your wedding being a special day for you, and it being a fantastic day that your friends will talk about for years to come, and really, which would you prefer?
So here are three ideas you can use to make your wedding as interesting and as fun as possible for your guests!
Hire a Photo Booth
Weddings are occasions when a lot of pictures get taken. You probably went to a lot of trouble to find the right wedding photographerso that you’ll have beautiful wedding pictures to keep forever. Because photos are such a big part of a wedding, having a fun photo booth where your guests can capture some photos that they can share and have some fun with can be a great way to make your reception more fun. You can find companies that hire out photo booths for events, or you can even look into photo booth software and create everything yourself. It is completely up to you, but a photo booth is always a fun addition for guests!
Get a Magician
We’ve all seen movies like The Prestige or watched illusionists like Chris Angel on TV and enjoyed the idea of magical illusions as entertainment. Most people look into having entertainment for their wedding in the form of a band or DJ but having an entertainer who can move around the guests and provide unique entertainment can make the event more memorable. Consider hiring a magician who can be sent out among your friends and do things like card tricks while the meal is going on.
Another thing that can make a wedding reception a lot more fun for guests is if they get some cool favors. There are loads of options for this, from special candies that are custom made to trinkets like keyrings that are designed to remind people that they were there for your big day. If you think creatively, you can give your guests something that is not just an obligatory gift to thank them for coming to your wedding, but something they will actually want and hang on to! Put some thought into your party favors and make sure that you choose things that are unique and fun to receive.
Planning a wedding is one of the hardest things most couples will ever have to do, but it is important to remember that the event is supposed to be fun. These ideas are just three of the ways you can make sure your guests remember your wedding.
