The 2019 wedding season is underway and we have seen some awesome trends this year that add a unique touch to your big day. Adding eccentric additions to your wedding allows for a memorable experience for your guests in a sea of events that they are likely attending this year. These personal touches will show off your special relationship to your guests and gives them something exciting to experience during your wedding reception.
Food trucks are a casual alternative to traditional catering for your wedding. Especially if you want to offer a late-night snack to your guests after the formal dinner but before they head home. You can find a truck that serves your favorite type of food or if you already have a favorite food truck, ask them to make an appearance!
Photo booths have been gaining more and more popularity at weddings in recent years. They offer a fun way to have novel photos of everyone on your wedding day and is a fun activity for people to try throughout the night. You can rent a photobooth and stock the area with fun props like DIY wedding signage and sunglasses for your guests. After all, the props don’t always have to be silly!
Neon signs are all the rage this year. We see them in restaurants, bars, cafes, so why not your wedding?! You can get a neon sign with your last name, wedding hashtag, or a lyric or quote you both love. This makes for a distinct photo opportunity for your guests to boast on social media!
Leaving disposable cameras on tables throughout your wedding is a fun activity for your guests and another great way to have an array of photos from your reception. Let’s face it – the photographer won’t be able to get every fun moment and different guests’ perspectives. This will encourage everyone to make fun memories together and snap them too. Leave a basket by the door so people don’t accidentally take a camera home with them!
Interactive Wedding Favors
Upgrade the traditional wedding favors and go for something that guests can pick and choose from for themselves. Right now, we love the donut wall and candy bar trends. Order donuts from your favorite local shop and allow your guests to choose their favorite flavor from an array of choices on a gorgeous, yet rustic, wall display. You can also look into ordering candy in bulk to set up a candy bar. Your guests can pick their favorites from an endless array of bowls and jars for a treat to take home.
No matter what fun and unique addition you chose to showcase on your wedding day, make sure it’s personal to you and your fiancé and offers an unforgettable experience for your guests.
