Your wedding is a fun celebration of your love. Your guests are there to enjoy the moment with you, and it’s even more enjoyable for them if you involve them in the day. There are so many great ways of involving your guests in the wedding fun, and we have chosen a few of the best simple ideas to inspire you.
Don’t forget flower girls
Choosing flower girls is the perfect way to involve the little kids in your life in your wedding. By involving the young ones, you are giving them an extra special memory they will cherish forever. Everyone loves to see flower girls walking up the aisle with their special and cute flower girl dresses, it softens the vibe and cuts any nerves or tension in the room.
Set up a photo booth with lots of crazy props, costume pieces, hats, glasses and whiteboards with markers. Your guests can pile in there together throughout the night, taking silly photos with dress-ups, props and whiteboard messages to you and your new spouse. You can look at all of the photos after the wedding and laugh at your crazy friends and family. You can also send out photos to your guests with your thank-you notes.
Send a song request note with your wedding invitations
Set up a wedding email address and include it in wedding invitations. Write a note to your guests telling them to choose two songs (per guest), and email them through to the provided address. During the reception, the music will be an array of your friends’ and family’s favorite songs. Everyone will be waiting to hear their song, and when they do…there’s no stopping the dance floor from absolutely going off. It’s simple touches like these which make your guests feel valued and involved.
Send a flash-mob video tutorial
If you want to get really interactive, you could send out a video of a dance tutorial to all of your guests. Each guest can learn the dance (if they want to!) and when the song comes on during the reception, the guests can gather on the dancefloor and dance a choreographed routine together. This gives the guests something fun and silly to look forward to, and makes them excited and involved in the wedding before it has even begun. Fun, outrageous features such as these make everyone feel relaxed and enthusiastic about your wedding from the moment they get their invitation. It lets everyone know that you want them to have fun, and you’re not afraid to get a little silly on your big day.
While your wedding day is about the love between you and your spouse, it’s also about the love your guests have for you both. The best weddings are the ones where the guests feel involved and appreciated. Start the process early by adding instructions to your wedding invitations, telling your guests to choose songs and even learn a dance! Involve the littlest guests in your wedding by choosing flower girls, and get everyone involved in the fun by setting up photo booths. This way, your guests will feel welcome, involved and free to have FUN.
