At the Mackey House, we’ve seen a number of unique and fun things happen at weddings over the years. Many times the ideas come from the wedding couple – or their family members – and help showcase some of the individuality found within the newlyweds-to-be.
If you’re looking for something that will make your wedding stand out from the others you have been to, start by thinking of the two of you. What do you like to do together? Do you have a favorite season? What about location, is there a place that means a lot to you? A simple and unique idea can turn into an easily enhanced theme with a few decorations, some music, reception menu, or other creative add-on that doesn’t have to break your budget.
Some of our favorites have been:
– Unique pictures: an easy set up really, all you need is a picture “station” with a back drop, some silly hats, necklaces, scarves, etc., and you have all the makings for a fun photo booth to capture silly moments with your friends and family to commemorate your special day.
– Unique color schemes: if the wedding couple has favorite colors, this is the time to let them shine. Don’t be afraid to play with colors and drape them throughout your wedding – both ceremony and reception – adding splashes of color, fun items in those same colors, drinks, food, deserts, candies – can make your wedding as memorable as the two of you.
– Unique themes: while it sounds a little convention-ish, you can do a theme wedding and still maintain all the uniqueness that is the two of you. Are you fans of a particular television show? What about a music group? Cartoons that you watched growing up as a kid? Think of all the things you have in common and how those can become underlying themes at the one day that celebrates your love!
– Unique entertainment: do you both love jazz? Perhaps you spend weekends together at the art museum in town? Do the two of you love to laugh? Take some of the common threads that make your relationship stronger and incorporate them into your reception. Hire a great musician, an artist, or a comedian to perform as the entertainment piece of your reception.
