Weddings can be super fun for the bride and groom, as well as their immediate families. For all the other guests, it can be all too easy to lose interest as the day goes on. This is especially the case for very long wedding days when there is a break between the service and the evening party. There are various ways you can keep your guests interested and help them enjoy the day. It’s all in the details! Here are five little wedding details that can make a large difference to your big day!
Invitations are very important, as they’ll get your friends and family all excited for the wedding! For a very stylish set of invites, chat to a designer and tell them your perfect design. If you are on a budget or want to give them a personal touch, consider designing them yourself. Your guests will love the fact you’ve gone to the trouble to make your own invites. Your bank balance will also thank you for choosing free wedding invitations.
Wedding photographers can be very expensive and often miss many moments during the reception. With smartphones being in the hands of almost every guest, let them help preserve your day. Frame signs with instructions for your guests to share their photos on social media using a specific hashtag assigned to your wedding. With Instagram and Facebook being all the rage, your guests can help capture and share memories that you may have missed. Browse through all the photos documented from your special day after your reception is over.
Hire Live Music
Live music or a DJ is important for your reception. If your budget is tight for your wedding, try to cut costs on the decorations and apply the funds towards the entertainment. Dancing is a wonderful way to make many lasting memories with your guests.
Ceilidh bands are a popular form of Gaelic entertainment that many people choose to have at their wedding. Originating in Ireland and Scotland, Ceilidhs rely a lot on audience participation, so expect all your guests to dance with the band! The band will play lots of fast-paced dances including reels and jigs.
Decorate your venue with photos of you and your fiance. Take a look at all the photos that feature both of you, and spread them around the room. You can incorporate them in many different ways. Stand some on all the dining tables during your wedding breakfast, and stick some to the walls. Your guests will enjoy going around and seeing all the different pictures.
Leave A Guestbook
Throughout the day, leave a guestbook for everyone to sign. They can write all their well-wishes so that you have them in a pretty book to keep as a memento of your precious day. This way, you will also remember who was at your wedding. If you do decide to use Polaroid cameras, you can also stick your photos into the guestbook and create a scrapbook of your wedding.
Most of these little additions to your weddings are ones which you will be able to keep for a long time afterwards as keepsakes. If not, they will help brighten all the many memories of your special day!
