You think you’ve got everything sorted. Invites have been sent. The venue is booked, and you have finally picked out a dress. The cake is being made; your flowers have been arranged, and the bridesmaids have finally agreed on a uniform style of dress. To cut a long story short, the essentials are covered. Now’s the especially fun part. Arranging the special touches and personal details. These are the things that will make your wedding especially memorable. The touches that will make your wedding inherently relevant to you and your guests. Here are a few ideas to make your day and your guests’ experience even better.
Photo booths are an ideal addition to any wedding reception. There’s something extra fun about old style photo booths with automatic prints. Nowadays, these are much easier to hire than ever before. Find a reliable company, such as Photo Boy Photo Booth, who will bring the booth and be able to set it up on the day. For extra security, hire a member of staff to man the booth. This will ensure that any technical errors or delays are dealt with in good time, and the booth isn’t out of service for most of the day. An extra special idea is to request two prints of every photo taken. This means your guest can keep one for themselves as a sweet memory. Request that the second is stuck into a guest book and encourage your guests to write a short note beside their picture. This way you and your partner will get a lovely souvenir of the day too.
Weddings mean dressing up. A lot of the time this can mean a lot of people will wear heels. Yes, they look lovely. You look taller and have a more sophisticated and elegant look about you. But after a long service, making the rounds for family group photos and a good few dances to the sweet sounds of a (hopefully not too cheesy) DJ, your feet will begin to ache. But you don’t want a large proportion of guests sat down for the majority of the night. There’s a quick fix to this. Place a huge bag of flip flops near to the dancefloor. Let guests know that they can help themselves. This way they can kick their heels off and head back to the dancefloor.
Hangover Recovery Kits
Weddings are notorious for leaving guests feeling a little worse for wear the next morning. Prepare on your guests’ behalf. Prepare a mini hangover kit for everybody over 18 to take as they leave. A small bottle of water and a little bag containing paracetamol or ibuprofen and a rehydration powder will work wonders. Paint a little first aid symbol on the front of each bag, or purchase ready made ones here.
Glasses and Fans
Are you having an outdoors wedding abroad or during the summer? Your guests might feel the heat during the ceremony. Make sure that they don’t miss a moment or break a sweat. Provide a pair of sunglasses and a fan for every guest. Leave them on seats for people to pick up as they sit down.
