When it comes to planning your wedding, you might be used to seeing the same types of ideas and themes floating around. Rather than rack your brain trying to come up with something truly unique all by yourself, here are a few ideas to help you get your creative juices flowing.
An Art Bar
Set up a table with confetti, paper, glue sticks and markers and let your guests create something whimsical and special for you to take home with you and place into a memory box. This will give your guests something creative to do as well as provide you with special take home memories from your friends and family. This is an especially good idea for younger couples and couples who have children. Also, if there is going to be a lot of children at the wedding, an “art bar” can provide all the entertainment that you need to keep the little ones occupied. It’s also a great source of aesthetic appeal. You can set up big glass vases that are clear with mounds of different colored confetti. This provides illuminating décor without causing you to spend a lot of money.
Unique Wedding Invites
Instead of sending out run of the mill invites to your guests, let them know that you are doing things a little bit differently by adding something special to the wedding invites. A card with a song request is a fun way of including your guests as well as making sure that they won’t be suffering through the music choices made on your wedding day. It also reduces the amount of work that you have to do when it comes to choosing the wedding playlist. Attaching an old photo from one of your parents’ weddings is another way to add something extra to the wedding invites. Old photos can create a sense of nostalgia as well as honor your family in a really nice way.
If you are trying to impress your guests as well as show off your artsy side (and save money!) creating your own simple crafts and using them as the wedding décor is a great idea. Although this won’t work for everyone, it you’re feeling creative you can set aside a day for you and your friends to create crafts using ideas from the internet and then incorporate those crafts throughout the venue for the your wedding. Then, when everyone boasts about how much they love the décor, you can literally take all of the credit!
Change the Dress
Despite having beautiful bridesmaid dresses and a beautiful wedding dress, why not change things up by changing into a different dress for you wedding reception? Your guests will be excited to see the change and you could end up being even more comfortable wearing a dress that you can easily dance around in.
