Weddings these days can be very mainstream and guests learn what to expect and know the rundown of activities. The last thing the bride wants is for her day to seem just like any other. Creative ways are needed to make each wedding feel completely fresh and new from all the others! Here are some planning tips to keep in mind when planning the wedding of the season.
1. Being open minded to new things is the best thing a bride can do when it comes to making her wedding day one of a kind. Brides have imagined the dream wedding, but being stuck to a certain vision can be limiting and detrimental to imaginative new ideas.
2. Also, remember your guests! The best weddings are the ones who plan around having a great time for the newlyweds and the loved ones around them. The couples that are looking to celebrate the start of their lives together with everyone around them are the weddings that will be remembered for a long time for all the right reasons. Try adding a photo booth for the guests to have fun with each other and use it also as the wedding favor for them to take home!
Adding lawn games like corn hole or giant jenga will also be a hit with those who are not so keen on dancing. Games will keep the little ones occupied too. Other fun games that can be added include the shoe questionnaire game. It is a great way for guests to know the couple on a new level. The couple has their own shoe in one hand and their spouse’s shoe in the other. The DJ asks a series of questions and whichever person fits it best, that’s the shoe they raise. It gives the crowd a chance to laugh and relax with the couple and then kick off the reception.
3. The ultimate way to add the WOW factor to your wedding is to kick off the reception with a first dance that your guests will not expect. The typical sway around in a circle is old and boring and guests will not sit still for the 4 minutes that it will take. Start with a classic and romantic dance that lets you and your new spouse enjoy dancing together and then, with a music change, blow your guests away with a side of you two that they haven’t seen before! This will take your guests by surprise and pump them up for getting on the dance floor. The first dance is used to embrace the couple’s fun character and start their lives together on the right foot. Guests love knowing that the bride and groom took time to prepare something for them to enjoy.
