Every couple wants to make their special day to be memorable. When it comes to designing your perfect celebration, look for wedding reception ideas that are unique as you are. Best of all, they don’t all have to break the bank.
Here are six wedding reception ideas to make your party pop.
1. DIY Photo Booth
Who needs a photo booth when polaroids are so much more fun? Using a table and coloured backdrop, set up your own polaroid corner that allows guests to capture their own fun at the wedding.
Consider allowing guests to write personalised notes on their polaroids to the bride and groom. These photos will be much more memorable than a guest book in years to come
2. Sweets Table
We all know wedding days can be quite long, so why not give your guests something sweet to keep their energy levels high and spirits even higher. A sweets table packed with your favourite lollies and sweet-treats will get everyone excited. Best of all, wedding reception ideas like this one are insta-worthy, too. Get your special #weddingdayhashtag ready!
3. Food Truck
For those looking for more casual wedding reception ideas, when thinking about catering, think food trucks. Food truck companies often manage a few different businesses, which makes it affordable to hire a few different trucks serving different cuisines for your big day. All your guests are sure to find something delicious to enjoy.
4. Unique Entertainment
Entertainment often comes down to wedding bands or a DJ. Great creative with your entertainment by thinking beyond the musical realm. Think about wedding reception ideas that will get guests interacting, like putting giant Jenga or Chess in the garden, or hiring tarot card readers or magicians to add a bit of magic to your special day.
5. Fire Pit
Create a warm, romantic mood for your special day by setting up a fire pit and cosy lounges outside. This will allow the happy couple and guests alike to get cosy as the evening progresses.
