1. Flip Flops
When it’s time for the reception everyone is ready to kick back and let their hair down. In order to have a good time you want your guests to be comfortable. Some people’s feet will be hurting by the time of the reception but by offering flip flops more people will get on the dance floor and involved. The guests would definitely appreciate it and it would be the talk of the town for days.
2. Sober Rides
A lot of people offer alcoholic beverages at their reception, but offering sober rides for the guests will ensure that all of your guests are safe upon arrival and departure. By offering sober rides it will allow everyone to have a good time and not worry as much because they know they will get home safe and sound.
3. Bathroom Baskets
Your guests may not be prepared for a spill on their shirt, a broken heal or nail or maybe they just need to freshen up a bit. Having sample toiletries’ like deodorant, lotion, mouthwash, soap, body spray, etc. will ease their mind.
Next to the basket prepare a cute poem to go along with the gesture.
So happy you’re here to share in our special day!!!
But should something happen to go astray,
Please help yourself to the contents within,
Hair spray (or Wet wipe), hand lotion, gum and even aspirin,
Use only what you need and leave the rest,
It may be useful to another guest.
So repair the damage that may have been done,
Then hurry on back and join the fun!!!
Compliments of the Newlyweds
Set up games at several tables and see how much fun everyone has. This would be most helpful for the guests with children because they can easily be entertained.
5. Photo shoot
Everyone wants to take pictures to catch the most memorable times of their lives. You probably have a photographer but having a section at your reception where your guests can take pictures and use props is always fun too. Whether you rent a photo booth or make your own this is a sure way to capture great moments.
