Gifts for the Little Ones
Embroider a message on a gift for the little ones. They have an important role on your wedding day, and a personalized gift is special no matter the age.
5. Your bouquet can be so much more than just flowers

6. New ways to toss a garter
Garters can be tied to soccer balls, rugby balls, or even tightly wrapped around a golf ball. Then, simply throw it as hard as you can.

This creates an amazing painting made by your guests that you can keep as a unique memory from your special day.
9. Read all about it...
Capture a photo of your weddingrings alongside a newspaper from your wedding day. This creates a beautiful photograph with a reminder of what happened on your special day.

Assign a song title to each table, and when that song plays, all guests at that table must hurry up and hit the dance floor.
11. Cake To Go, Please!
You've had a beautiful cake created for your wedding day, but some guests might not have room for more treats. Ensure you have some small boxes that can fit a slice or two for your guests to take home—nothing goes to waste.
12. Something for the Morning After
Wedding parties can sometimes go on into the wee hours. Create fun "morning after" bags with a few small essentials that can be appreciated the day after a grand partyYour guests will thank you.
13. Desserts Galore

14. Klä stolarna middagsfina
En enkel stol kan dekoreras till det tema ni har på er bröllopsdag. Ett vackert band kan knytas runt stolens rygg, fäst vackra blommor som matchar brudbuketten, ja det finns oändliga möjligheter. Låt fantasin flöda.
15. Consider Your Guests
With high heels and plenty of dancing, the ladies' feet may start to ache. Place a basket of slippers, ballet flats, or flip-flops (if you're having a summer wedding) on a table in the venue. Now, guests can dance the night away in comfort.
16. Wedding Activities for the Young Ones
Keeping the kids entertained is important for both them and the adults. If there are several children attending, it might be a good idea to hire someone to entertain them with games and activities. Have a room where kids can relax, play games, do crafts, and have fun.
17. Creative Lighting
Great lighting effects don't have to be expensive and are an easy way to decorate a venue. Lighting works especially well when used to transform a space from day to night, and you can create all sorts of effects with lighting by projecting patterns, your own images, and videos on blank walls.
18. Tight Budget?
Gifts for your guests don't have to cost money. Why not give something you've created yourselves as a token of appreciation - perfect for a smaller wedding?
19. It Doesn't Have to Be a Book...
As an alternative to the classic guestbook, why not give your guests something else to write in or on? Some alternatives could be having guests write their messages on a photo frame, on small beautiful cards to hang at home, or not recording a video where guests can give their well-wishes and messages.
20. Follow That Balloon
If the distance from the ceremony to the reception venue is short, a fun idea is to give guests a helium balloon each so they can follow each other and release the balloons together, creating a fantastic photo opportunity for your wedding album.
21. Bake, Create, Craft
If you're on a tight budget or simply prefer to bake and create yourself, there's so much you can do. Bake cookies for the dessert table or perhaps even bake the wedding cake - that would be something to brag about to your guests. Making your own jam, juice, or other delicious treats to offer guests is always appreciated. Add a personal touch with a handwritten label, for example, tied around the jam jar.
22. Bring Out the Inner Child!
Bouncy castles for the kids (and also the inner kids of the adults, of course) can be an excellent idea if space allows, either inside or outside the reception venue. There's a variety of bouncy castles available, even suitable for a wedding party. It will undoubtedly provide some of your favorite guest photos.
23. Say It with Lanterns!
Your bridesmaids don't need to have flowers in their hands; they can instead carry feathers, and fans, or if you have an evening wedding, why not let the bridesmaids carry beautiful lanterns?
Music Makes Strong Memories
