I was at a friend’s wedding a few weeks ago, and when I walked into the reception hall, I noticed that they had huge flat-screen TVs adorning every corner of the room! It didn’t take long before I understood what they were for… Because within about 10 minutes, pictures of the guests kept popping up all over the place with the hashtag written on our wedding invites! What a brilliant idea!
15Vintage or wanderlust wedding anyone? A memorable table plan fit for the occasion.
16Childhood pictures. Still on theme with pictures here, but this one might be a little cuter! We highly recommend adding a picture of the bride and groom at the age corresponding with the table number assigned to the guests. In that way, each table shares in the telling of your unique story – as well as a few embarrassing haircuts! This also lessens the blandness of table numbers.
17An unconventional but totally awesome wedding idea is a piñata cake!
18Add interactive activities to create an intimate wedding feel even if you have a large guest list.
19An adorned reception bathroom.
Try some (or all) out and let us know how the big day went! Or keep on reading about the trends for 2017 weddings!
