LET'S FIND OUT
We know that all weddings are special and will always be remembered with much love, but we also know that there are weddings that have novel moments that will remain in everyone’s memories forever, and in this opportunity, we want to share with you 5 ways to make your wedding unique, making your guests feel special and create a memorable guest experience!
You can also have a conversation with your planner about adding moments of surprise and delight. These moments can help to entertain your guests and give them a long-lasting impression.
Here are just a few ways that you can start planning “outside the box” and add a bit of surprise and delight into your wedding day:
1. Make a bubble entrance
We all love sparklers, but bubbles are definitely a perfect addition to your wedding. The bubbles represent joy, festivity, dreams, looks beautiful in the pictures and it goes without saying that your guests are in less danger than with the sparkles.
Bubbles add whimsy and romance and give a unique touch to your wedding photographs. Creating a magical and enchanted setting to the couple’s grand entrance, or also exit. Wedding bubbles add a bit of texture to the wedding photographs and make them even more beautiful. You can use bubble guns or a few bubble machines.
Another way to make a memorable entrance is by going over-the-top to introduce the happy couple and their wedding party. Try and recreate elements of your love story. Think of creative and unique ways to highlight how you met, your favorite activities to do together, or anything in-between.
2. Bring a specialty food truck
Food truck wedding catering makes a fun addition to any celebration. From late-night snacks to delight your guests, to a traditional wedding meal. Some ideas can be popcorn, riceculturex, ice cream, churros, ice cream cookie bar.
Now more than ever, couples are focused on making their weddings an unforgettable experience for their guests. While some to be weds are opting for interactive food stations or live performances, others are thinking in food truck wedding catering. This is an extremely unique addition to your wedding. Not only will it provide your guests with delicious, authentic food, it’ll also create a completely Insta-worthy photo opportunity.
3. Add photos of your childhood as table numbers
Storytelling is a great way to bring your wedding to life. Every couple has a unique journey, whether it’s your family history or your extraordinary love story. Either of these can easily be divided up into stations (Centerpieces, pictures frames, pictures slideshow).
Using your childhood or dating photos to personalize each table number is a touch your guests will definitely love and could even give them several conversation starters. We know that your guests are the ones who have always been there for you, and they would not want to miss any important moment in your life.
4. Alternative entertainment
We all love surprises and novelties! Imagine the reaction of your guests appearing on the arm of a robot!, or start an unexpected hora loca, maybe a live band or a conguero to pump the party. There are a lot of different ideas that your guests will love and will be their topic of conversation for a long time
5. Photobooth guest book
Sometimes you don’t need a lot of words to express yourself. Provide a camera and ask your friends and family to put their photos in a book or they could also hang them on a clothesline. This idea is very nice and I think it reflects the fun, the vibe and the good time that your guests are having at this precise moment.
Just like theses ones, there are many more novelties that will surprise all attendees and the moments will remain immortalized in photos, videos and memories forever. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your planner and start a conversation that can lead to the “wow factor” your wedding deserves. Book your complimentary consultation today.
