Planning your wedding experience
Our top 4 epic wedding ideas!
If you have been following me on my Facebook and Instagram you have noticed that I have been talking a lot about planning your wedding experience, but what is that exactly? This basically means planning an event or wedding that leaves an lasting impression on you and all your wedding guests!
Do you remember the last wedding you attended? What do you remember about this wedding and Why? Most weddings have the same type of flow and vibe. Starting with the ceremony, reception, dinner and dancing, not exactly the most exciting thing ever.... My own wedding wasn't that exciting at all, I don't remember much about the day, it flew by and I honestly don't know if my guests remember any of it either.
Planning a epic wedding experience doesn't always mean you have to opt for a destination wedding, making your wedding interactive and fun can make all the difference! So how do you plan a Epic Wedding Experience without breaking the bank? Here are some epic ideas!
1: A Wedding Bake Off!
A sweet table is a must have for most of my clients. Having a bake off contest is such a fun idea and is perfect for couples on a tight budget! This is how it works......
You ask your friends and family to bake something for your sweet table, this can be a cake, cookies, cupcakes or even something as a special a family recipe. Every sweet gets a number and every guest can vote on their favorite Sweet. At the end of the night you announce the winning sweet and give the baker a fun prize! Making your sweet table an interactive experience makes it memorable and fun for all! Another plus point is that your guests will eat more of the sweets so their will be less waste at the end of the night!
2: Wedding Dance academy!
Almost everyone likes to dance, but this doesn't mean that everyone can dance! Often couples will take a couple of dance lessons to practice there moves for their opening dance. Why not give all your guests the chance to learn a new type of dance at your wedding?
As part of your wedding entertainment hire a dance teacher that will give your wedding guests a dance lesson while they're on the dance floor. This is a fun and interactive way of getting everyone up on their feet! You can make this element as personal as you would like, choose a traditional dance to celebrate your roots, or choose something fun and modern. So put on those dancing shoes and get this party started!!
3: The cocktail winery !
Keeping your guests entertained while your off having some alone time as newlyweds can sometimes be tricky. Having a interactive wine, beer, or even a cocktail tasting with a professional connoisseur that can tell your guests all about what they are drinking can be so much fun!
This is a perfect activity to keep your guests busy and entertained. Your friends and family may even pick up some nerdy wine lingo! Combine this with a table quiz during dinner to see how much everyone has learned. So... for all you Cork Dorks out there say cheers to this epic wedding idea!
4: Adventure Elopement
This is one of my favorite ways to make your wedding a epic experience. Take things to the next level and combine your wedding and honeymoon! What could be more fun and memorable than saying " I do" on a mountain top, in the desert, or on a beach somewhere around the world.
Surround yourself with a small group of your favorite people and celebrate your love story with a holiday vibe! Travel together to your favorite holiday location or a location that you have never seen before, collect the memories that will last a life time!
