Are you preparing for a wedding in the upcoming new year? There are so many details to plan for your special day. You want everything to be memorable, not only for you, but also for your guests. A memorable wedding reception is something your family and guests will be talking about for years to come. While most receptions follow traditional norms, there are some great, creative things you can do to make your reception extra memorable.

Photo Booth

Photo booths are a fantastic way to get people to loosen up and have some fun at your wedding reception. Festive props make it fun for your guests to make silly poses and make memories of the evening that they can take home with them.

Even more, you can set up a photo album next to the booth, allowing your guests to insert one of their photos in your album and write a personal message to you and your sweetheart that you can keep as a cherished souvenir of your special day.

Activities For The Kids

If you are having children attend your wedding reception, having a stable of activities that they can do to entertain themselves is very important. Little ones may get bored easily and their parents will have much more fun knowing that the kids are occupying themselves and enjoying what they are doing.

Games are always fun for kids. There are great versions of popular games in jumbo forms that they are sure to gravitate to. For instance, giant Jenga, or giant Connect 4 are great games they can play. If your wedding is outdoors, bean bag toss is never a bad option either. Pick a few games and the kids will be happily occupied all evening long.

Give Your Guests The Munchies

After a long night of celebrating, your guests are undoubtedly going to have worked up an appetite. One fantastic way you can delight them is with a late-night munchies spread. Fingerstyle foods would work best. Choose things such as french fries, a street taco bar or slider bar. Everyone loves these snacks and since your guests were probably celebrating the entire evening, this will surely be appreciated.

Create Your Own Hashtag

Even with the photo booth and your wedding photographer, with social media you can rest assured that your guests are going to be snapping and posting tons of photos throughout the evening. Creating a table card that can be placed on each table detailing a special hashtag guests can use for the evening when they post photos is a fantastic way you and your sweetheart can go back and check out all the great photos that were taken that evening.

There are many unique wedding ideas out there for your wedding reception that will leave your guests talking about your special day. These unique ideas, topped off with a wedding sparkler send-off are sure to go a long way in making your wedding stand out.
