So How Can You  Throw A Wedding Your Guests Will Thoroughly Enjoy?


1. Masquerade Masks

If you’re planning a smaller destination wedding, perhaps in Venice, or anywhere for that matter, why not surprise your guests with a mini masquerade ball experience? You can have masks for adults and for children. Guests would need to find their partners and all the people they know on the day. You could even use masks, as an elaborate escort card display. Think of having a large wall covered with masks. It would make an incredible statement as they enter the room but it will also be fun for them to find their masks and wear them as they enter the banquet hall and go to their seats in style!

2. Carnival & Games

How about renting a carnival for your guests to enjoy? Make your wedding a truly memorable and enjoyable event for everyone, young and old. Kids love fairgrounds, rides and games. You can rent stalls or rides to keep them entertained and help make your wedding day not only full of love, but positively popping with bounds of fun too!

3. A Smoke bomb 

A wonderful way to make a wedding your guests will always remember is to use a smoke bomb. Many couples are going for more experiential photography, where they want more of a unique moment to capture. Why not use as smoke bomb, not only for yourself as a couple, but for all your wedding party together? That would be a great way  to involve your guests, capture some rather fantastic moments and have an immense amount of fun and laughter!

4. Combine good music with an open bar and late night snacks

Another way that you can make a wedding that your guests will always remember is to hire an amazing DJ plus free alcohol equals a recipe for success. Who wouldn’t remember dancing all night whilst drinking complimentary cocktails? For extra points, surprise your guests with some delicious midnight snacks to end the night on a high. Dancing is hungry business! In fact, remember that you guests will all be hungry different time of the day. The worst thing that can possibly happen is for you guests to have to wait for hours for the food to arrive, or be served!

As guests arrive there should be some designated areas throughout the day, whether it’s upon arrival, the middle of the day or throughout the midnight fiesta, an open buffet, or some form of drinks and snacks should always be available.

5. Don’t forget the late evening celebrations

This is certainly an original way to light up your guests eyes! For any night time events or parties, these reusable led balloons are a great way to liven up the wedding venue, put your guests in a good party mood and serve as a fabulous photography backdrop.

6. Exchange heartfelt, personalised wedding vows

Humans are wired to remember emotional experiences. If your wedding vows tug on the guests’ heartstrings and bring a tear to their eyes, the moving moment of making a wedding your guests will always remember, will undoubtedly stay in their memories forever. Make the moment even more meaningful and mark it with some custom designed vow books. They could be custom designed and made in velvet, leather, or whatever you might have in mind.

7. Choose a distinctive venue or opt for a destination wedding

Following on, it goes without saying that so many couples are opting for smaller destination weddings. This is the penultimate way to make a wedding that your guests will always remember! Not only will they visit a completely new country, but your wedding will be more like a holiday, with so much to offer. Think, food, culture, history!

The perfect venue sets a scene and creates a beautiful backdrop for your big day. From seaside soirees to majestic castles, an enchanting venue and stunning surroundings are sure to charm and astound your guests. The venue below is from Estoi Palace in the south of Portugal, Algarve. Its romantic rococo architecture and interiors harps back to more opulent times gone by.

8. Leave your wedding in style

Forget about throwing confetti when leaving the chapel. Why not give your guests colourful balloons to release or vintage bells to ring? Leave in a car with a line of glowing sparklers to make a memorable moment. Taking part in an activity that is exciting, unique and heart-warming is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

9. The little details create the most joy

Thoughtful touches promise to make your guests feel special. Why not treat them with a personalised wedding programme and lavish, hand-written name cards? Not only will guests appreciate that an artist has taken the time to hand-paint their names and wedding information, the artwork can also be kept as memoirs of your special day.

    You made an interesting point when you mentioned that hiring a DJ is a good way to have a wedding all your guests will remember. Would it be a good idea to hire a DJ and a band to perform at your wedding? I would think that hiring a band could be a good idea if you are wanting to have a more traditional wedding.
