The simplest way to make your wedding memorable, is to plan it around a unique theme. Some of the most popular themes these days include butterflies, tropical scenes, sunflowers, as well as themes based on seasons such as fall, spring, and summer. Once you decide on the theme, other things such as the decorations, invitations, food, music, etc., should revolve around it. Besides choosing an interesting theme, there are a number of other things that you can do to make your wedding even more fun. Given below are some of the most fun wedding ideas.
Arrange for a Candy Buffet
A fun theme to arrange for is, a candy buffet. It should be planned in accordance with the wedding colors. Keep candies of different colors in containers in numerous sizes and shapes. To decorate the buffet, you can use floral arrangements, pillar candles, as well as the couple's childhood photographs, around it. A good idea for wedding favors would be to keep empty containers to one side, and have the guests pick their own candies to take home with them.
A Family-Prepared Wedding Cake
Instead of just ordering for a cake, ask your close friends and family to bring homemade pastries and baked goods for you. These family-made offerings can be arranged nicely to look like a cake at your reception. Keep a note on the side for the rest of the guests, explaining how the cake was made. It will be something you will remember for the rest of your life.
Involve the Guests in the Unity Ceremony
A unity ceremony can be included as part of the wedding, to make it a unique experience. Everyone is given unlit candles. The first guest in the front is given a lit candle. From this candle, guests light each other's candles, one by one. Meanwhile, the bride and the groom light their own candles; together, they light a 'unity candle', which is a slightly larger candle. This ceremony is like a symbolic proclamation, where the friends and family support the couple in their union.
Plan a Beach Wedding
In a beach wedding, the sunset, sea, and waves rolling across the sand noisily, are more than enough to mesmerize your guests, where you do not need to put up extensive decorations, thus, cutting down immensely on your costs. On top of that, there is nothing more romantic than a couple taking their wedding vows amidst this splendid, natural environs. An interesting idea is to use decorations like marbles, pearls, wall hangings of starfish and dolphins, seashells, mounted driftwood and oars, and the like.
Bridal Lanterns in Place of Bouquets
Another fun idea is to have the bridesmaids, flower girls, and best man, hold decorative lanterns as the bride walks down the aisle. Lanterns can really light up the venue, especially if the wedding is held in the night. They can make your wedding look dazzling and special.
A last tip to make your wedding even more entertaining and impactful for the guests, is to assign each table, a song. Whenever that song is played, the guests around that particular table have to get up and dance. This would ensure maximum participation translating into maximum fun at your wedding.
