When you’re planning your big day, how can you set yourself apart from the rest of the year’s weddings?! With so many guests attending multiple weddings in a season, it’s always fun to try and think up a fun, unique idea to make your wedding memorable, and to make your guest’s experience even better than they could’ve imagined! Here are some unique ideas from The Knot for how to set your wedding apart from the pack:
A Luxe Reception Lounge
Wouldn’t you love to have some comfortable lounge areas for your guests to relax in?! By setting up some simple tents outside your reception area (like our unique Star Shade tents!) you can create uber posh living spaces filled with couches, plush chairs, loads of pillows and romantic gauze! Your guests can bring their cocktails outside and take a break from dancing up a storm on the dance floor in the comfort of your thoughtful creation!
Create your own signature cocktail, and serve it to guests as they arrive and while they wait for the festivities to begin! Choose something light and refreshing, and make sure you have a convenient, well marked drop-zone for empty glasses to keep it classy and clutter-free for your ceremony! This is a fun way to bring some of your personality and character into the wedding before your guests even see the bride and groom! You can even give it a fun name that has special meaning to you and your partner.
Thoughtful, Practical Wedding Favours
There are so many fun, interesting ways to say thank you to your guests with wedding favours, but why not choose something that’s not only fun but practical too!? If you’re celebrating outside, why not provide bright, cheerful sunglasses for all your guests to wear so they can enjoy your ceremony without the sun blinding their view? And since temperatures can change drastically from afternoon to evening, having some sweet, inexpensive blankets for guests to swing around their shoulders (perhaps under the cover of your tented outdoor lounge?!) is both thoughtful, and generous!
All told, your wedding day will be unbelievably special regardless of all the bells and whistles, but having a unique way to set your day apart is not only a great way to personalize your celebration, but also to keep your guests happy and talking about your big day for years to come!
