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.

 

Naturally Elegant – Amazing Rustic Chic Weddings

horses

 

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.

 

 

Confetti


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.

 

 

Attire

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.

Fun Wedding Reception Ideas and Games

Bye bye boring wedding receptions!  No more worries about guests sitting silently as they wait for dinner or their favorite song.  The Flutter FETTI Team has curated some fabulously fun wedding reception ideas to break the ice and get the party started!

Prevent Your Guests From Clanging Glasses

Your weddings guests want to see you kiss. It’s a lovely celebration and what a better time for a kiss than at your wedding reception? However, after the 10th kiss in 2 minutes you realize you’ve become a slave to the clanging.  We all know the old tradition was for guests to bang their glasses with flatware as an audible request for the bride and groom to kiss.  CLANG! CLANG! CLANG! YUCK! Brides everywhere are looking for a fun new alternative to this old tradition.  

Let’s slow things down a bit and make each kiss a little more meaningful! You can inform your guests with an announcement from the MC that “In lieu of banging our forks against our glasses, if you would like the newlywed couple to kiss, you must…”

  • …stand up and provide some meaningful marriage advice – if the crowd deems it worthy, the bride and groom will kiss.
  • …show the bride and groom how it’s done by coming up in front of the main table and kissing your mate – the bride and groom will outdo all of you!
  • …stand up and make a short toast to the bride or groom

Garden Gamesmonogrammed-corn-hole

Outdoor wedding receptions are the perfect venue to invite your guests to “Come Play with Us”.  Lots of wedding planners and brides that purchase our wedding confetti ask us about fun wedding reception ideas for the great outdoors. During the al fresco cocktail reception, guests can get to know each other through a friendly lawn game or two.  “Life-sized” jenga and chess, along with bocce ball, corn hole, and croquet create an entertaining and easy going atmosphere. Just be sure to have someone in charge of getting people involved or, depending on tour crowd, that stuff might just sit there.

Just Say “Confetti!”Wedding_Ideas_and_Games_Flutter_Frenzy_2

Guests want to have fun!  A fabulous time will be had by all as a confetti frenzy erupts on the dance floor.  Before the reception, pick a certain dance song that’s sure the get guests on their feet.  Then plan to have the wait staff bring confetti sticks out on trays as your DJ or Band Leader lets everyone know how and when to use them.  As the special song plays, guests will fill the air with a captivating confetti frenzy.
