6 FUN WEDDING IDEAS FOR GUESTS

#1 - Unique and engaging reception entertainment

One of my favorite wedding ideas for guests is WOWing them with fun and unique reception entertainment! Some ideas you might want to consider include hiring a live wedding painter, having an interactive photobooth, or bringing in special entertainment such as a mariachi band, a fire knife dancer, or your favorite Disney characters. Your guests will be talking about your wedding for years to come!

A fun signature welcome drink is sure to get your guests excited for the rest of your wedding festivities! Transport your guests right away with a buzz-worthy welcome drink. This is a great opportunity to pay tribute to your favorite alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. Your guests will love the personal touch!

BONUS IDEA: give your napkins some personality! Print some fun facts or trivia about you and your future spouse on them. Guests will love this elevated and personal experience!

#3 - Fun welcome bags

This is one of those wedding ideas for guests that is not only thoughtful and fun, but practical! Especially for couples hosting a destination wedding, this is one way you can show off what you love about your wedding destination. Fill welcome baskets or bags with local favorites such as delicious snacks, sweet treats, theme park maps, sunscreen, sunglasses, and other items guests may need during their stay!

#4 - A yummy surprise

I recommend considering the local cuisine at your wedding destination when coming up with wedding ideas for guests. Maybe offer tasting stations with popular local delights, for example! If you’re planning your destination wedding in Orlando, ask your caterer for yummy local favorites to be served at your cocktail hour and reception. Looking to surprise your guests further? Hire a local food truck to stop by your event!

#5 - A solid weather backup plan

If you’re having an outdoor wedding, listen up! Weather can be very unpredictable, so trust me, your guests will appreciate you being overly prepared. A solid weather plan is one of the most considerate wedding ideas for guests there is! Be sure to think about the weather and your guest’s needs. If you’re hosting a wedding during the colder months, offer blankets. Likewise, if your wedding is in the summer, consider parasols for shade and fans for guest comfort.

BONUS IDEA: Be sure to keep your weather backup space in mind when choosing your ceremony décor! You’ll want to be sure you have décor that will help dress up the indoor backup if weather pulls your outdoor event inside.

#6 - Special song requests

Want to see your guests dance the night away? Ask them to share a song they would like to hear at your wedding reception! You can include a space on the RSVP card or have guests email you. Then present the list to your DJ or create a playlist to ensure a night full of dancing and fun. This is one of those wedding ideas for guests everyone will enjoy!
