5 Fun Additions For a Unique Wedding Experience
Weddings aren’t just a celebration of marriage; they are an expression of the couple’s individuality. The details of the wedding events and décor are a way to demonstrate the bride and grooms’ personal interests and style, which help to create a unique experience for everyone in attendance. Flex your creativity and provide your most experienced wedding-goers with a fresh outlook with these 5 fun additions to create a unique wedding experience.
360 Ceremony Seating
Give your guests a different perspective than the traditional ceremony by providing viewing opportunities from every angle. By aligning yourselves in the middle of the ceremony and setting up seating in circular rings, the ceremony has a more intimate feel and allows everyone a chance for closer proximity to the bride and groom. 360 seating also encourages mingling from both families as it eliminates the typical divide present at a traditional wedding ceremony.
Ring Warming Ceremony
The wedding bands are more than a piece of beautiful jewelry. They are a symbol of the bride and groom’s eternal devotion to one another and their commitment to their marriage. One creative way to strengthen the symbolism and summon fond memories every time you gaze at your wedding bands is with a ring warming ceremony.
After tying the wedding bands together with ribbon or string (you can also place them in a decorative dish or box), the rings are passed to each guest who has an opportunity to bless the rings in a way that is unique and meaningful to them. Whether that be a prayer, well-wishes, or simply sending their love, when the wedding bands make their rounds and are returned for the ring exchange, they will have been imbued with the love and affection of all your friends and family.
Pro tip: Designate a ring chaperone to ensure the rings are returned to the bride and groom in time for the ring exchange!
Photo Seating Charts
When guests arrive at your wedding reception, their first stop is usually the seating chart. Make each guest’s first event of the night both memorable and fun by having them search through silly photos rather than a long list of names.
Don’t have a photo of every guest in attendance? Nearly everyone has a social media account these days and has dozens, if not thousands, of photos posted to their accounts. With easy access to personal photo albums, you can select the best/silliest photos of each of your guests and surprise them to the effect of lots of laughter and crowding around the seating chart. This will immediately get guests in a lighthearted mood and can make for a great topic of conversation at the reception tables.
Food trucks are a great addition to nearly any wedding, so how could we possibly forget about their beverage counterparts? Getting drinks can be an experience in and of itself with the introduction of a mobile bar at your wedding. The great thing about mobile bars is that they come in all shapes and sizes, making it easy to coordinate them with the theme of your wedding.
For example, if you are having a vintage outdoor wedding, a mobile bar renovated from a vintage Volkswagen van would be a perfect match for your décor. If you’re working in tighter indoor quarters, you can decorate copper bar carts and place them in various parts of the venue to enhance your theme and ensure no one needs to wait in long lines for a drink.
Luxury Reception Lounge
When guests need a break from dancing, they often retreat to their reception table to rest their weary legs. Since tables have a limited number of seats and are often organized in a way that makes conversation difficult once the music begins, it can lead to secluding your guests. Create a space for your guests to relax and socialize as a group with a luxury reception lounge! Designs are flexible and can utilize couches, lounge chairs, or even rugs and throw pillows to create an intimate space for your guests to kick back, while they recharge for their second or third round on the dance floor!
