With all the time and effort that you put into planning and organising your big day, you want your guests to remember your wedding day!
The perfect way to do this is to add some finishing touches that will be the icing on the cake in regard to your wedding decorations. Here are some great finishing touches that will create unique and enjoyable memories for you and your guests, whether you are having a traditional Asian celebration or not.
A gift for your other half
Whether it is a heartfelt letter or piece of matching jewellery, a gift on the morning of your special day is a great way to let them know you are thinking about them. It also helps with the pre-wedding nerves to be able to have a little bit of the person you love with you before you see them at the ceremony.
Capture the memories
Even if you have a photographer, it is a sweet idea to pop disposable cameras on the tables for your guests to take some more informal images on your big day. A great way to get some lovely memories of all your loved ones who might not feature in the profession photos.
Notes and gifts for your bridesmaids
If you are having a traditional Asian wedding, the culture differs from western celebrations, and paying your respects is a huge part! Giving your bridesmaids a gift thanks them for all their efforts in helping you on your big day.
Advice from your guests
A unique idea is to place a large jar with some bits of paper and stationary for your guests to leave you and your partner some advice on married life. It interesting to go through them at the end of the wedding day and reflect on the hints and tips other couples have.
If you have a wedding hashtag, it means that you will be able to search through all the photographs that your guests have put on social media; they are easy to find for you to enjoy.
Why not hang lots of pictures around to show your guests the story of you and your loved one? This is perfect if you are childhood sweethearts.
Having little bags full of activities for the children at your wedding is a great way to keep them occupied, and the parents will be grateful too as it will give them an excused to get on the dance floor.
Having your own DIY cart or station means that your guests can really get hands on with the fun. A sweet cart or cheese station are two examples you could use.
Games! This is an especially great idea if you are having your wedding outdoors, or your venue has outdoor space. You can use it to have games such as giant Jenga and giant Connect 4. Or you could even go more traditional with croquet!
Tired feet station
A quirky idea to have at your wedding is a tired feet station, which consists of a box full of flip flops for your guests in heels! They don’t have to be expensive, but it will be really appreciated by your friends and family.
Your guests will love a personalised place tag for the table. Something they can take home and remember your special day by.
Do me a favour?
It is customary to give your guests wedding favours to take home on your special day, a great way to thank them for coming along is to give them a personalised gift they can incorporate into their homes.
