Every bride wants their wedding day to be special but sometimes that desire gets buried under the 1001 things to be done before the date arrives. But there are many simple things that can be incorporated into your organisation as well as the wedding. For the wedding reception, having a photobooth from someone like Lumin8 ready for guests to take photos or themselves is a thoughtful addition as well as something to create a great deal of fun and some take-home memories. What else can you do?
- Very often, the invitations go out months before the wedding. You can make your wedding guests feel part of everything by sending out a newsletter every month to all those who’ve accepted. Make it humorous and tell them how the organisation is progressing, any fun things that have happened – even disasters can be made fun of. If you don’t laugh, you’ll cry, right?
Mention some of your guest by name to make the letter more personal, wondering how they got on with their own wedding.
- Ask each person to write out a little fun note of advice, or tell about something funny that happened on their own wedding day and bring it to the wedding. It can be dropped in a decorated box or bowl there to be read at your leisure. You could even let others read the offerings.
