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.

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.

 

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!

Confetti adds the PERFECT touch to any event! Our hand flick confetti launchers are popular with our customers. Want to as some extra flair?

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!

Bulk Tissue Confetti Perfect! The confetti was better than I imagined! The colors are perfect and the paper looks amazing when it falls. I was also impressed with the fact that someone kept in touch with me about the status of my order without me asking. Most companies just take your money and let you wait till the package comes to your door. Great customer service and awesome confetti!
