Bring a Smile on Your Guests’ Faces with These Wedding Ideas

They say the wedding ceremony is all about the couple getting married, while the wedding reception is all about the guests.

We like to think that it’s a bit of both – this entire day is all about you, but you wouldn’t be here without your wonderful family and friends, all of whom have gathered to celebrate this amazing event in your life.

Thus, you definitely want them to have a great time at your Big Day.

Aside from great food, a selection of drinks, and excellent music, what are some of the best ways to make sure your guests have the time of their lives?

We have some ideas for you – so read on if you’re looking for inspiration.

  • Have some fun with the RSVP. These cards can be stressful for guests as much as they are for you – so why not sprinkle them with a touch of humor? Instead of classic RSVP cards, ask guests to fill in a wedding-themed Mad Libs card and send it back to you. Extra tip: you can use this to ask them about your favorite music too if you want to make sure everyone loves the wedding music.
  • Another great way to make sure people dance at your wedding? Replace table numbers with song lyrics. When that particular song comes up, the table “allocated” to it has to get up and move to the dance floor.
  • Pick a fun outfit for your Ring Bearer – such as a security T-shirt saying “Ring Security”. This is bound to make all the wedding guests smile when they see the little guy proudly wearing his T-shirt down the aisle!
  • Send guests home with a pack of sweets. What better way to end such an amazing night, other than by munching on some delicious sweets? Personalize some cute bags or boxes and ask guests to take some of the candy on the dessert table “to go”. This will double as a wedding favor – one that guests will definitely love because, well, they get to select their favorite snacks!
