Your friends and family have made sure they attend your wedding and be a part of all the celebrations! The guests you have on your wedding are special to you and thus you should go a step ahead in making your wedding memorable for them too. Here are some great ideas to surprise your wedding guests and make them feel every bit special!
1. Make the cocktail hour exciting
Set up a wine, champagne or liquor tasting counter. This will be something different and unique for your guests and will also give them a taste of the different types of alcohol before they finally decide upon their drink for the night! Call a beverage expert and let him give some tasting lessons.
2. A spinning wheel
On your mehendi or cocktail, put a spinning wheel with some fun prizes for your friends and family to spin and win!
3. Midnight surprises
Weddings are all about staying up and partying all night. Surprise your guests by delivering some pizzas for their after party and make it all the more exciting!
4. Hire a sketch artist
Keep a sketch artist at your wedding venue and let your guests get their portraits made that they can take back home as a memory of your wedding. This is something more unique and different from the usual photo booth pictures.
5. Girls’ v/s boys’ side
Yes, this doesn’t have to happen only in the movies! Organise a girls’ v/s boys’ side cricket match or a fun antakshari session between both the sides.
6. Kite flying fun
Add more colour and fun to your mehendi ceremony by having a bunch of kites kept aside for your guests to enjoy some kite flying.
7. Make the pheras fun
If your pheras are happening late at night then it is obvious that most of your guests would be tired. Surprise them and wake them up with the smell of some yummy warm popcorn in all kinds of flavours!
8. Keep the little ones happy
Why should elders have all the fun? Organise some fun activities for the little ones at your wedding by having some fun meal boxes for them. Their parents are sure to thank you for the rest of their lives for giving them some time to be a part of the celebrations without worrying about the kids and their food.
9. Dance the night away
To ensure that your guests are comfortable while they dance at your sangeet, have a box of dancing shoes, where the girls can change into comfortable flat footwear and enjoy dancing.
10. Farewell gifts
It could be a personalised thank you note in the rooms or a small gift. Don’t forget to add yours and your husband’s initials or your wedding date on the note or the gift.
11. A fun lipdub
This is one amazing way to make all your guests a part of a fun activity. Choose a fun song like ‘London Thumakda’ or ‘Iski Uski’ and ask your photographer to take shots of all the guests lip dubbing to the lyrics. This will be one crazy fun video that everyone will remember for ever.
12. Don’t forget anyone
There will be some guests who wouldn’t have been able to make it for your wedding. Don’t forget them and do include them in the festivities too. Surprise them by sending out a personalised note and let them know how much they were missed.
13. A memorable activity
Make sure you spend time with every guest who comes to your wedding. Have all of them release flying lanterns in the air or use a polaroid camera and take fun pictures with your friends and family. A polaroid camera will give them instant pictures which they can take back with them as memories.GIFs: Tumblr, Giphy
