All things considered, your wedding day is likely to be among the most memorable days of you and your partner’s life without much further consideration. Its importance, though, also needs to be communicated to your friends, family and other loved ones who will be there to share the moments with you.
Here are a few ways to make sure your wedding is as memorable for everyone else as it is for you and your new spouse.
Update the favour tradition
Favours are a great physical reminder for your guests to take away with them, which in turn makes them a great candidate for making your wedding a memorable one.
Most people make use of chocolates or flowers as favours to give to guests, but how about tailoring your choice and opting for a favour that they can keep forever to remind them of your wedding?
You could go for practical options, like scarves or pashminas and tie them into the season of your wedding, or give them an activity-based favour – like seeds to grow flowers, or herbs. Have fun with it!
Opt for quirky entertainment
The tried-and-tested wedding band is a staple regular at weddings, but along with that comes a whole host of alternative entertainment options, among them novelty karaoke, or fairground-style attractions. Hiring dodgems is easier than you think, and making use of interactive elements, like photo booths, is a great and modern way to keep your guests engaged.
Photo Booths and caricature artists also offer guests something to keep and take away with them from the event, which makes your wedding that bit more memorable!
Letters for guests
Unfortunately, at your wedding, finding the time to meet all your guests may be something of a tall order. As a result, you may have to consider other means of expressing your gratitude for their presence.
One great way to do this is by handwriting notes to leave on each guests’ dining seat. It may take a while – but it’s well worth the time and effort.
You could also set aside two seats on each table during the meal, and spend each course with a different set of guests. This will ensure that nobody feels left out or unimportant, and at the same time, will make sure that your wedding is memorable to everyone involved!
