Fun Ceremony/reception Ideas!

Recommended Posts

We are trying to make our wedding as fun as possible for our guests.  I have a couple of ideas for the wedding:

 

1 - Giving guests beach balls to throw during the recessional, we are also planning on playing Georgia Satellites - Keep your Hands to yourself :)

2 - Having glow bracelets for the guests for during the dinner and rest of the evening

3 - Doing a photo booth guest book with props and a chalk board to give us their wedding advice

 

We aren't having a DJ, my FI parents are pretty reserved so we are just having a dinner and then the "younger" people are going to party the rest of the night away with some bar hopping.

 

Does anyone have any other FUN ideas!

I just had a conversation with my bridesmaids about it too!!!!!

 

how about these. I am thinking about the second with some Q&A:

  1. Beanbag. Yes, it is not sandbag. This classic beanbag game can easily be DIYed for your wedding; add your silhouettes or monograms, or get a set in your wedding colors. http://www.fotavo.com/photos/photo3XK5yw4la8912mpTcSMgoNvWU6hID70CuVLizdRA
  2. Flip cup ~Start off this drinking game with a round of boys vs. girls: the groom and the groomsmen against the bride and bridesmaids! Then, open it up to the rest of the guests. http://www.fotavo.com/photos/photodo9lZ0ED8LUk5Gn1m23NYuxieMsXQCvjcBJtFhTp I like the game because it is much like a group game that can cheer up the whole guests.

Yup #1 and #2 are on my list too! And our photographer added in a photobooth with props to our package so we will have this at the reception.

 

Also planning on adding a go-pro camera to a bottle of tequila during the dance (saw this on a brides video and it was amazing and hilariously fun!)

 

We are having a DJ so hoping the party goes til 11pm outdoors and then moves to the disco after. Funny- we are considered old by many but still want to have a great FUN wedding.

One idea I have is chinese wish lanterns. It can be really pretty as well as thoughtful for the guests

Ale sure you talk to your resorts. Many resorts are now banning these due to fire hazard- which I was bummed about since they are gorgeous... But alas they are not allowed at my resort!

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
