Have A Standout Wedding Reception With these Unique Ideas:
Conventional child care
Get a babysitter and place her in a room. Thus, if you have young guests, they can have a place to retire to when they are tucked out. If possible, select a room that is near the location of your reception to enable parents to stop by and check on them and then smoothly return to the party. Let the room have enough games, snacks, and DVD players that are portable to keep the kids entertained. There should be enough blankets and soft sofas when they feel like napping. Parents will appreciate you forever for this unique and helpful wedding idea.
A reception with a luxe- lounge
A need to ensure your guests have a place where they can mingle in between breaks for dances by having at your reception, a lounge area. To implement sophisticated and fun wedding ideas, occupy the space with chairs and couches and several pillows where they can sink into. It is a great style to entertain people at the party, even when resting. If you want to wow them, then close off the area with curtains to create a vibe that is VIP.
Upgraded welcome bags
Allow your guests to feel as if they are VIPs with welcome bags that go beyond a few snacks and a map. To ensure it is a great wedding experience at the reception, stuff tote bags that are personalized for each guest, with a six-pack of a micro-brew that is locally made or bubbly mini bottles. You can also opt for a gift certificate of one of your favorite local coffee shop. Another great idea is a welcome written note for each guest.
You might already be planning to have ushers to escort guests to their seats after the ceremony. But it would help if you considered this unique idea where you have ushers at the reception. The live cards for escort will walk your guests up to their seating places for a high class experience of a restaurant. Ask the caterer at your wedding reception venue if their wait-staff can do double duty. You can also allocate some few ushers to do that job.
Useful and thoughtful favors
Ensure your guests are comfortable all day long by thinking ahead. Provide your guests with a custom scented soap so that they don’t depend on samples offered in the hotel. They will definitely appreciate it! Do you have plans to dance until morning? Using your wedding colors, put out baskets of flip-flops so that your guests can take their shoes off.
Do you have an outdoor reception that could get breezy? Ensure that your guests keep warm by offering up some Pashminas that are cozy. And for an outdoor summer ceremony in the afternoon, provide a station stack with inexpensive sunglasses and spray-on sunscreen.
If you plan to shuttle your guests coming from the wedding ceremony up to the wedding ceremony, ensure that their journey is full of fun. For example, rent some great transportation that is cool and comfortable. Take the wedding transportation to new heights by including in the ride, a hot air balloon.
Or if it is okay for your wedding style, you can become nostalgic with some yellow school buses. And to add an extra flair, try customizing your ride by playing music that is fun. Add a fun sign on the bus that reads “her and him wedding (insert your names) wedding or bust the balloon.”
A DIY flower station
Allow your guests to know that it is not only your wedding party which is special to you but also them. Let them stand out with their boutonniere or corsage. You can ask your florist regarding making your flower station. Put in it some sturdy flowers like mums or spray roses. You can also supply them with colorful pin and ribbons. Moreover, add several labels that have instructions that are easy to follow. It is an idea that guests will greatly love.
Cocktails before the ceremony
Your guests will not be getting drinks before they arrive at the wedding reception. Thus, offer them a good surprise by having a table full of light beverages as they head to the ceremony. It would help if you avoided anything strong! You can try to have iced teas that are fruit-infused or mimosas to sip before getting seated. You should also have one that is non-alcoholic. Have your ushers or caterer collect any glasses lying around to ensure the space is neat before the processionals start.
Send your guests home with a feeling of having been taken care of. Your valets should place some small favors or snacks at the end of the night, in the cars before handing them the keys. Don’t you have valets? You can utilize baskets of gifts like masks with soft eyes with tight sleep notes. Or you can have hangover kits filled with water, Aspirin, and snacks for guests to be able to pick as they leave the reception venue. If you have organized for shuttle or bus transportation, you can get a favor waiting on board.
Standard cards for escort
Instead of having the usual paper card which guests can threw away or loose, you can upgrade your cards for escort to an item that is worth eating or keeping. Try coming up with personalized cake pops that will have names of guests as well as numbers for tables on a cute tag or icing. You can also have martini glasses that are engraved, which count also as favors.
