15 Wedding Surprises That People Love


Flutter FETTI Flickr 4
Your wedding is the best day of your life! You’ll laugh, cry, dance and have the best time ever imaginable. Brides and grooms love to WOW and surprise their guests; no one wants a simple cookie-cutter wedding! Here are some outstanding ways to make a lasting impression on your guests.

  1. For cocktail hour, offer alcohol samplings by an expert. Your guests can taste wine, liquor, and champagne. Or, serve one specialty signature cocktail. Pick something that defines your journey as a couple.
  2. Champagne is delicious, but it is even better with additions like citrus or fruit. Place options on the tables so your guests can customize their champagne toast drinks.Flutter FETTI Flickr 5
  3. Create a beautiful lounge area for your reception. Set up some couches and pillows as a space for your guests to relax between dance songs and still have a party atmosphere. Don’t forget soft lighting!
  4. Ask your reception venue if they have ushers available to walk the guests to their table. This creates a swankified atmosphere
  5. Seating can at times be awkward and hard to determine. On each table, place a sign that shows the relation between the guests at the table. Show the guests that you took time to think about who they would enjoy and what they have in common. This is a great conversation icebreaker as well!
  6. If your guests are staying at a hotel, offer transportation from the hotel to the ceremony, reception and back again. Some cool ideas include a trolley, a yellow school bus, or a double decker bus.
  7. For those guests staying in the hotel, leave fun welcome bags. Make sure they are personalized and add things such as a gift certificate to the closest coffee shop, a map with directions to the wedding and reception, and a list of local sights they may enjoy.
  8. Favors can be so generic sometimes. Offer items that will stand out in their minds. For outdoor ceremonies, sunglasses and sunscreen are not only practical, but great for photo ops. Leave a basket of flip flops for those who want to take off those high heels on the dance floor. Think outside the box and put yourself in your guests’ shoes. What would you appreciate?
  9. If children are welcome at the reception, they might get tired out during the event. Hire two or three babysitters and put them in a room with toys and items for children. The kids can opt to unwind in the kid room (or area) instead of with the adults.
  10. Guests love the first dance. Why not make it exciting? Do a remix and show off your dance moves. Take a ballroom dancing course and amaze your guests. Learn a dance routine, like from Dirty Dancing, and perform away!Flutter FETTI Flickr 3
  11. Another fun idea for the first dance is to have Confetti Blowers. A favorite look is all white Tissue Corkscrewswhich spiral downward mixed with silver and gold metallic Flutter FETTI.  Your family and friends will be enthralled as the FETTI flutters, flies, and floats downward creating a beautiful “upscale” special effect!
  12. Change your appearance for your reception. Purchase a reception dress that is easier to dance in. Let your hair down, change your makeup, and use your imagination!
  13. People of all ages love a photo booth. Give your guests fun props to use and send them copies of their photos.
  14. Get your wedding party or family in on a choreographed dance. If you can convince your dad or grandfather to perform a dance and show off his impressive moves, you’re sure to induce some belly laughs!
  15. Guests love fun and unique snack foods. As the party progresses through the evening, offer candy bars, a taco bar, an ice cream bar, or a waffle bar! The possibilities are endless.

The team at Flutter FETTI is here to customize your confetti and streamer needs to make your wedding stunningly spectacular! Contact one of our confettiologists toll-free at (877) 321-1999 for personalized service on just the right products to use at your reception.

Five-Star-Image16” Wedding Confetti “Hand Flick” Launcher – Custom Colors  

Beautiful addition to the Wedding! We ordered this for our daughter’s April wedding. I had discovered it just weeks before the date. Our Flutter FETTI came in fast and it was perfectly packaged. It was a beautiful addition to the bride and groom’s exit. We thought about bubbles… takes too long and is messy. We thought about bird seed… but wasn’t sure how it would clean up. When I found this… we were excited. The pieces are nice enough to make clean up a breeze. We custom ordered our colors… and it was gorgeous. Haven’t gotten our pictures yet… but the photographer has already said the confetti made the difference. She had never shot it before and said she would recommend it. We have already recommended this to all our friends.


Naturally Elegant – Amazing Rustic Chic Weddings



Rustic chic has become a popular choice for wedding themes. The back to nature, understated simplicity is perfect for those loving couples whose idea of bliss is sipping from mason jars in their cowboy boots. The theme also fits the elegant minimalist couple who believe that the focus of a wedding should be on their family, friends, and everlasting love instead of opulent and often unnecessary expenses.

It’s as easy as Mom’s home baked pie to create a rustic feel that is chic while still charming! The Flutter FETTI Team has some exciting ideas for making your rustic chic wedding a dream.




www thelovelyfind dot comThe Flowers

When you are going for a rustic chic wedding theme, flowers are an important aspect to consider. Your flowers should be whimsical and natural, perhaps wildflowers, baby’s breath, or clusters of daisies. The bouquets can be tied with garden twine or jute rope and the table arrangements can be vintage mason jars, either clear or tinted, in a variety of colors to suit your them.




white 6 inch hand flick launcher

Celebrations that shower the bride and groom as they exit the church or ceremony location are the perfect place to set the tone for the rest of the wedding celebration. Instead of handing your guests little bottles of bubbles or packets of petals or rice, why not consider using one of our various sized confetti launchers to celebrate the newly wedded couple!  One option is to give every guest a 6″ hand held confetti launcher filled with white, biodegradable tissue confetti to send into the air as the happy couple passes by them.




Shorter tea length dresses that show off western boots provide just the right amount of sass for the bridal party. Perhaps even include cowboy hats, either the entire wedding party could wear them or just the groomsmen. Another option is casual sundresses with simple sandals (or no shoes at all)!


www dot saplag dot netRustic Décor

You want the décor to look perfect on your big day. A fantastic and inexpensive choice is getting bales of hay for your location and using them as extra seating. Hay bales can also be put to use as a place to hold flowers, chalkboard seating charts, gifts and cards or your guest book.

For an evening wedding outdoors, hang mason jars filled with votives (either real or the LED variety) on low hanging tree branches. This look creates a magical atmosphere that’s also incredible in photos! Get creative and use barrels, wood pallets, galvanized accents, and re-purposed farm implements as unique touches to your reception location.

Ceremony Ideas

Decorate your ceremony with fabrics like burlap, linen, calico, and lace. Birch wrapped accents and wooden aisle signs add a finishing touch. One cute ceremony idea is using a ring pillow that is made out of burlap or even a small bird’s nest to hold the ring! You could also have the flower girl wearing a crown of flowers or ivy while walking down the aisle for a lovely rustic touch.


www southern weddings dot comWedding Party Transportation

A limo seems out of place at a rustic wedding. Try some other options such as a hayride, a vintage pickup truck, or even a horse drawn wagon. Don’t forget to add a special send off when the bride and groom are leaving the reception! Our 18″ airless launchers half filled with custom colored metallic streamers are a gorgeous effect for outdoor use. These streamers are very easy to clean up, and in fact, they’re so pretty that guests may pick save them as a wedding souvenir! Our airless confetti launchers provide an exciting send off to bring the wedding to a close.

Baptism & Christening Parties with Pizzazz!

A baptism or christening is a wonderful cause for celebration. Families and friends alike want to share this moment with their loved ones. Whether you’re hosting a large affair or a more intimate gathering, you can have an incredible baptism or christening party. All you need to do is add the right amount of style and flair this sacred and cherished time. The Flutter FETTI Team is here for all of your party planning needs – read on for their exclusive tips to make this day oh-so-memorable!

Photo Booth with a Streamer or Ribbon Back Dropwww etsy dot com jd photo props store

Everyone will want a picture with the little guest of honor, so create a special area just for photos. Streamers and ribbon are eye catching options that won’t break the bank. Just drape them vertically from the ceiling to the floor, tightly next to each other and twisted together at the top. Since they come in a variety of colors, you can definitely find pale pastels and white colored streamers to capture the true innocence of a ceremony like this. Set up a chair or bench front and center for baby and their guests. If possible, set up the photo booth in a well-lighted area that receives lots of natural sunlight. Share the photos with your family and friends after the party! Did you know we can custom color and make any size tissue or metallic streamers to hang on the wall? And there’s no minimum order for streamers!



flutter fetti image from flickrConfetti

Confetti adds the PERFECT touch to any event! Our hand flick confetti launchers are popular with our customers. Want to as some extra flair? Scatter loose confetti in custom colored die cut hearts on the party tables. Create heartwarming memories on this special day with the magic of confetti! Soft colors mixed with white Flutter FETTI will cascade around the guests and provide amazing photo opportunities. Loved by adults and children, confetti will make your baptism or christening party stand out.




Twww blovelyevents dot comhe Desserts

The menu is always something that is important at any gathering, but when you really think about it, the desserts are the star. Satisfy those hungry party goers will a special cake, cookies in the shape of a cross or dove, a color coordinated candy bar, or even a pastel colored cupcake or donut tower! Set up a “dessert station” for all of the sweet confections.





www esty dot com resebudchocolates storeParty Favors

Unlike other parties, people don’t typically expect some type of favor for this event. However, you don’t need to let your guests leave empty handed! Choosing something simple like candies in a white or pastel colored miniature bag stamped with the name of your child and the date of the baptism can be a great place for you to start. You can also make white chocolate lollipops with cross shaped molds and simply wrap in cellophane and tie with a white ribbon.




The Theme

Who doesn’t love a theme? Party themes tie the entire event together. Think invitations/announcements, décor and style. A few ideas for your theme could include:

  1. Seasonal – Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall each bring unique ideas for decorating around the time of year when your child is baptized.
  1. Animals – If you had a baby shower with an animal theme, why not incorporate the same idea with this party? You may even have some decorations or ideas you could re-use in unique ways. Decoration with little lambs, ducks, elephants or monkeys are always an adorable choice.
  1. Location, location, location – Live at the beach? Make it a coastal party with starfish, nautical decor and various blue confetti products. Order our “water soluble” instant dissolve tissue to use by the beach. As always, all of our tissue is biodegradable!

The Flutter FETTI Team is here to help make your baptism or christening magnificent!  Contact one of our confettiologists toll-free at (877) 321-1999 for customized suggestions today!

Head to the Great Outdoors

Did you know that you could easily create an outdoor movie set right in own your backyard? All you need is a projector, a large white sheet (Queen or King sized), pillows, some chairs or blankets, and clothespins. You may want to use two sheets and double them up if you don’t have a solid backdrop. Simply hang one end using a line and clothespins while weighing down the bottom with bricks or heavy rocks. Voila – you’ve created your projection screen! Just set up the projector, connect to your computer, stream the selected movie and enjoy! Arrange the pillows, blankets and chairs around in a semi-circle for a comfortable place for your guests to relax and enjoy the show.

Charisma with Confetti!

Why not hand your guests some 9” airless sticks filled with metallic streamers as they arrive? These won’t leave a mess in your yard and are very easy to pick up.  We can also custom color the streamers no matter how small your order. Create a FETTI-frenzy at the end of the movie, incorporating Flutter FETTI will have the crowd feeling like Hollywood royalty. Using loose Flutter FETTI die cut stars as decor on your concession tables is another easy way to add ambiance. If you really want to make an impact, rent a confetti blower for maximum WOW!

A movie night just isn’t complete without popcorn! You can buy an inexpensive tabletop popcorn maker and serve up freshly popped popcorn all night long Set. up topping bar option with different fun and tasty flavors in everything from savory buffalo ranch, cilantro lime, and chipotle to sweet cinnamon & sugar, peanut butter, and s’mores.

Create It: Easy Concession Stand

One of the best ways to bring the movie theater experience to your night is by having a “concession stand”. Put out a wide variety of candy and snacks for your guests to enjoy while movie watching. Don’t forget the beverages! Set up a drink dispenser or cooler filled with icy cold drinks all can enjoy. Juice boxes are a big hit for any littles ones (less mess to clean up post movie!).

Don’t Forget to Decorate

Add some flair to your movie night by hanging colorful outdoor lights and some movie-themed décor. The details might be small, but the impact will really WOW your guests.

DIY movie nights are simple to pull off, but a memorable way to hang out with your friends and family. You can come up with a theme to go along with the movie and use custom colored Flutter FETTI to compliment your theme. Romantic chick flick? Go with pinks and whites. Old Hollywood glamour movie? Try metallic silvers and golds. American War Films? How about some Red, White and Blue patriotic products? The possibilities are endless.

Guaranteed to Keep Your Guests Laughing – Party Games for Groups

Do you have family and friends visiting?  Say goodbye to humdrum happenings and hello to FUN! The Flutter FETTI Team has some fabulous party game ideas to break the ice and get the party started!

Gargle a Song

Photo from: www.webweaver.nu

Photo from: www.webweaver.nu

You might want to have a rain poncho or bib on hand for this crazy game! While gargling water, a person will start to sing a song. The others in the group will try to guess what song they are singing. The person who guesses correctly is next up to serenade the party.

Sing Song Ping Pong

For this party pastime, a person will begin singing part of a song chorus. The next person must feature a word that is found in the first person’s song lyrics. Each time a person uses a connecting word, they are awarded a point.  The first person with 10 points wins…even if they sing off-key!


Photo from: www.sensortower.com

Photo from: www.sensortower.com

For this game, split into two teams. Have 15 to 20 words or phrases written down on slips of paper that can be easily acted out (fun ideas include “walk the dog”, “Beauty and the Beast”, and “mowing the lawn”).  Remember, talking is not allowed by the person acting out the word. Instead, use these hand motions to communicate:

  • Number of Words: Raise your fingers to indicate the number of words. Two fingers equal two words, etc.
  • Books: Hands together in front of you, then open them up like a book.
  • Quotes: Use your fingers to make air quotes.
  • Plays: Bend down on one knee with your arms extended in a dramatic gesture.
  • Movies: Pretend to look through a camera lens with one hand cranking your imaginary movie camera.
  • Songs: Move your hands out from your mouth.
  • TV Shows: Form a rectangle with your fingers to signify a television screen.

As the actor begins, set the timer for three minutes, and let the fun begin! Both teams compete to guess what the person is acting out. The first team to solve the charade wins a point. Keep the charades going until all of the slips of paper are gone. Winning team gets bragging rights!

Dictionary Game

If you have a small group, this is an awesome way to bond and get to know each other. Each person will have their turn going through a dictionary to find an obscure word. Then each guest will have to write down what they think the word actually means. This can be done for up to 10 words. Winner can either be the person with the correct definition or the person with the craziest (incorrect) answer!  All you need to play is a dictionary, paper and pencils, and your brain!

Balloon Volleyball

This game is played just like a typical volleyball game, only using a balloon. Just like in the real game, each time a person misses the ball or it hits the floor, the other team scores the point.  If you are playing outside, you can kick the game up a notch by filling the balloon with shaving cream or water!

Let Them Eat Cake

Whether you special order a cake from the bakery or bake up your own custom confectionary masterpiece, cake (or cupcakes and cookies) are a must! Search the internet for inspiration – the possibilities are limitless…  You’ll find flag cakes made with everything from fondant to blueberries and strawberries, cakes colored with red and blue food dye, and even “camouflage” cupcakes.

Red, White and FOOD!

Ready to work the menu?  All you need is a star cookie cutter and your imagination!  Use the star cookie cutter for everything from fruit (watermelons, pineapples, and cantaloupe work wonderfully) to bite-sized assorted sandwiches. Patriotic themed plates, cups, napkins, and serving dishes/bowls keep the theme going! 

Barbeque with a Bang

Family, friends, and “down home food”.  Has your service member missed certain comfort foods while they were gone? Why not host a barbeque? A simple BBQ gathering is a very low-key and casual event that can ease your military loved one back into their everyday life at home. Invite a few close friends and family over and cook on the grill for a great event.

Patriotic Potluck

Family and friends always want to “do something” to help welcome service members home. A potluck party fits the bill! You’ll have less stress and more time to enjoy the moment. Bonus:  guests get to sample a variety of different and tasty foods.


The Flutter FETTI Team wants to make sure the homecoming of your military loved one is as memorable and special as they are!

It’s beyond exciting to find out you’re expecting and it’s time to share the news! Long gone are the days of (gasp!) waiting until the baby is born to announce if it’s a girl or boy… A popular and exciting way to share your special delivery details with family and friends is to host a Gender Reveal.  Ready to plan the most epic Gender Reveal ever? The Flutter FETTI Team has you covered with these awesome ideas!

Say It with Confetti!

Hand out the confetti launchers and explain to your excited guests how to use them. No peeking! Then begin the countdown from 3… 2… 1… and flick our 14” Flutter FETTI sticks at the same time. We can customize the Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks by using either baby pink, cerise (hot pink), baby blue, navy, or royal blue tissue colors.   Or you can simply use one or 2 tissue colors inside of the tube.  We always recommend using white with the colors you choose in all the tubes since white shows up well in the air. As the Flutter FETTI flies up into the air EVERYONE will know the sex of the baby!

Ready to FETTI? Be sure to mention that your purchase is for a baby gender reveal. The Flutter FETTI Team will put a white wrap at the end of the tubes so no one can see the colors inside. Whether your party is large or small, we have you covered with no minimum order!  



The Cake Reveal


Who doesn’t love dessert?  Gender reveal cakes are a deliciously fun way to announce your baby’s gender.

There are many options in creating pastry perfection with cakes, cookies, cake pops, and cupcakes! 

  • Dye the cake batter pink or blue
  • Use colored frosting between the cake layers
  • Fill the cake’s center with pink or blue candies



Older Sibling Announcement


Already have a child? They can share in the excitement as the “big brother or sister” by announcing that your family is growing. Dress them in their special shirt underneath a zip-jacket or sweater.  At the count of three, have them unzip their jacket for the big shirt reveal!  Be sure to have cameras on hand to capture the expressions of the grandparents-to-be and other family and friends. 

The Envelope Please!

ItsaboyAnd the Oscar goes to…wait, that’s another party.  You’ll certainly take home “Best Gender Reveal” when you have your doctor or ultrasound technician write your baby’s gender on a piece of paper and seal it in an envelope.

Open the envelope as guests wait in anticipation for the big announcement or have an Aunt/Uncle or godparent share the thrilling news.

What’s In the Box?

Guests will be WOWED at your gift-wrapped present that just so happens to be so much more… Wrap our Surprise Box Continuous Flow Confetti Launcher in baby-themed wrapping paper. As the parents-to-be and party-goers surround the present area, pull up the lid of the Surprise Box and voila! The confetti products inside will fly up and flutter all around. Our continuous flow confetti launcher is easy to use and so much fun! Simply drop in tissue Flutter FETTI and add die cut hearts both available in baby pink, cerise (hot pink), baby blue, navy, or royal blue tissue colors.  The smiles and cheers as the “present” is opened will make memories to last a lifetime.

These ideas will make your pop! Family and friends will love being a party of this special day. If you’re looking for other ways to celebrate your bundle of joy, check out Oh Baby! Guide to Hosting the Cutest Baby Shower.
