Cool And Fun Ideas For A 2016 Wedding

If you are looking to get married in 2016, here are some cool and fun ideas to make your wedding day, a day to remember.

Transportation

Depending on the time of year and the weather you could break with tradition and arrive in style on a motorbike and sidecar, horse and carriage or a supercar such as a Porsche or Lamborghini. Transportation for guests can include a vintage red bus, or the VIPS could arrive in a camper van. All different and all very memorable.

Special Favours

Make your guests feel extra special with personalised favours. Particularly suitable for a small wedding, each bag could contain a mini bottle of champers/ non alcoholic wine, disposal camera to record the day, and a personal note from the bride and groom. Kids could have a wedding themed colouring book, crayons, and personalised cookies or Love Hearts sweets.


A Photo Booth



Having a photo booth, such as those by OMG! photobooths London, is an excellent way to capture brilliant memories. With a variety of themed backgrounds and props, including hats, feather boas, and sunglasses this is an incredibly fun way of creating your own photo book of the event. You can even hire a green screen booth, so your guests can be on the beach, in a Hollywood movie or outer space even. A copy of the guest's photo can also be attached to the thank-you note.

Cocktails For Everyone

Set up a cocktail bar with a variety of spirits and mixers and hire a mixologist to make the party go with a swing or should I say a shake. Better and cheaper still, create a 'Bubbles Bar' where guests can customise their sparkling wine with fruit purees  to make a refreshing fruity Kir Royal or sparkling peach Bellini.

A Choreographed Dance

Spend some time before the day learning some dance moves and surprise your guests with the 'Time of Your Lives' from Dirty Dancing, or strut your moves like Travolta and partner in 'Saturday Night Fever'. Even better make sure the best man is armed with a video camera to record it all for posterity. For added fun see if one of the older guests will join in and dance their funky moves - all arranged beforehand of course!

Don't Forget The Child Care

Those with younger children will really appreciate the thought. Ensure your reception venue has a room available and then hire a babysitter or two to look after the little ones. Make sure the room is comfortable and stock it with games, colouring pads and pencils, popcorn and a DVD player with movies. Consider theming the room and activities depending on the age and sex of the child - what about a Frozen evening anyone?

Amaze In The Evening

Instead of a buffet amaze your evening guests with a barbecue, complete with campfire and sing along with an acoustic guitarist, or a food truck with Mexican tacos or burritos all washed down with some Tequila cocktails. You could even hire some Tequila slammer girls but bring them out after the food and make sure you also have plenty of soft drinks too or your guest will have sore heads the next day.

To theme the venue for your campfire consider Wild West props such as plastic cactuses, model horses and cows and for the Mexican evening give out prizes for those who come in fancy dress - think big moustaches, ponchso and sombreros, topped off with a Pinata party game for the kids.

I hope these fun ideas will add some inspiration to your wedding planning. Tell me do you like any of these ideas?

    1. I think this wedding booths are great fun and using all the props takes it to a another level. I like the sound of a green screen too - I can imagine people flying like superman lol.

  4. I love these ideas. Most weddings I go to seem to be exactly the same and are not memorable in the slightest. It's a shame as I know people have spent thousands on an identikit wedding.
