Your wedding day is one of the most special and memorable moments in your life; however, it’s usually the smallest and unanticipated details that will render your day outstanding with some unique wedding ideas.
10 Unique Wedding Ideas
Here are 10 ideas that can help make your wedding a standout event and help transform your day from only being a great wedding, but also the most talked about and memorable event for both you and your guests.
1. A Luxe Reception Lounge
Offer your guests a place to socialize between dance breaks by setting up a lounge spot at your reception. Ensure that the area is full of couches or chairs and lots of pillows for your guest’s comfort. This is one of the perfect ways to hold everyone in on the event even while they’re relaxing. To further impress your guests, enclose the space with curtains to deliver a VIP vibe.
2. Reception Ushers
Even if you may have already planned to have your guests escorted by ushers to their ceremony seats, you should consider hiring reception ushers. These ushers escort guests to their tables for a classy restaurant experience. You should request your caterer or reception venue staff to perform this double duty, or hire several ushers to carry out this task.
3. Guest Transportation
Make the journey of shuttling your guests from the event to the reception area, a fun filled one by hiring some cool mass transportation. Take your wedding transportation to greater heights, if possible, with a hot air balloon ride. Depending on your wedding style, you may also consider getting nostalgic with some appealing yellow school trucks. To achieve an extra flair, consider customizing your guest’s ride by playing cool music or decking out the ride with a poster that states, “Mary’s and Peter’s wedding!”
4. Outstanding Pre-Ceremony Cocktails Set-up
Surprise your guests by establishing tables of light beverages on the path leading to the main event, since most of the guests expect drinks once they are in the reception area. Consider not serving very strong drinks, you may go for mimosas or fruit-infused iced teas, which they can take before taking their seats. Maintain a neat environment before the processional starts by ensuring that your ushers or caterer collect any stray glasses.
5. Customized Escort Cards
Try out customized cake pops with names of your guests and the table numbers labeled on them in icing, or imprinted martini glasses that play as double favors, rather than using paper cards that usually get lost; you should consider upgrading your escort cards to something your guests can consider keeping.
6. Upgraded Welcome Packages
Create a VIP experience for your guests with welcome bags that surpass a map and several snacks. Pack customized tote bags with bubbly mini bottles or a six-pack of a favorite local microbrew, a gift package to your local coffee shop along with your personal invitation note.
7. Thoughtful And Worthwhile Favors
Make sure that all your guests are comfortable for the entire day by thinking out of the box. For some guests provide a custom scented lather since some may not prefer the standard hotel samples. If you are planning for an overnight dance party, you should consider placing flip-flop’s in baskets (in your wedding colors, obviously) so that your guests can remove their shoes. For an outdoor reception, ensure your guests keep warm by providing some comfy pashminas in case it gets breezy. Allocate an area offering your guests with a stack of inexpensive sunglasses and spray-on sunscreen if you are planning on having an afternoon summer outdoor wedding.
8. A DIY Flower Station
Make your entire guests stand out with their own boutonniere or corsage; these make your guests recognize that everyone is special to you not only the wedding party. Request your florist for a create-your-own-flower station. Place several sturdy blooms such as spray roses, supply a plethora of colorful pins and ribbons, and attach labels with simple instructions to follow.
9. Take Away Valet Gifts
Consider sending your guests home in a stylish manner by requesting your valets to place small gifts in guests’ rides prior to handing over the car keys. These may be things like soft eye masks with a cute note for your guests to take with while going home. If you’ve organized for bus transportation, have a gift waiting on board for your guests.
10. Convenient Child Care
Have several babysitters and allocate a room for them in case your youngest guests tucker out. For easy accessibility, select a room close to your reception area so parents can drop by to check on their children and then head back to the event easily. To keep them entertained, provide snacks, games, and a music player and ensure there are soft sofas and blankets for them to relax.
