4. Replace Phones With Disposable Cameras

Our phones these days can be a distraction from our real-life experience. We’ve been to a wedding where guests are asked to lock away their phones for the event, and in exchange, they were given a disposable camera.

In a social media-driven world, this is a great way to make sure everyone is present in the moment creating actual memories, rather than spending time sharing it with others.

Your guests will have the excitement of getting the photos developed and looking back on their time after they’ve experienced it.

5. Surprise Guests During The Reception

Give your guests something they’re not expecting upon arrival. They say the first impression is everything. Do something fun and exciting, it’ll set the tone for your night and will engage everyone from the get-go. Here are some riveting ideas:

  • Have a hidden tent that serves a theme shot, say Indiana Jones style (keep it weird!)
  • Have an instructor give salsa or cha cha dancing lessons to your guests
  • Rather than toss a bouquet, throw a Marge Simpson wig or something unique
  • Have some old fashioned games such as mini-golf or bocce
  • S’mores bar around a fire pit
