11 Ways on how you can make your wedding fun for your guests•
Posted on July 13 2020
Pick a Fun Theme
If you want your wedding day to be full of fun, it could start with picking a fun theme for it, so that you create a vibe that aligns perfectly. For example; a festival style wedding with lots of colour, quirky decor and garden games is going to help you set the scene for having lots of fun. It has energy, with a casual atmosphere where guests can feel at ease. A tropical theme is a fun, bold style to play with that you could transport your guests into an oasis for the day. Adding fun tropical plants, disco balls and pops of colour will create a world to enter that makes them forget about everything else, allowing them to get lost in the details. Its all about choosing a theme and using decorations that ooze the fun factor.

Confetti Toss Station
I have a great idea to help you make a fun confetti station with these self assemble confetti cones. Below is a step by step video to help you create them using the Diy Kit from my shop.
A Fun Creative Table Plan
Getting creative with your table plan gives you a chance to add an element of fun. It's one of the first touch points when your guests enter the reception area they will be greeted by this, so it's a chance to grab their attention. You could make your table plan really stand out with fun ideas for displaying your guests names, or you could make it interactive so you guests have to find their name in a creative way. It's really fun if it's your own idea that they won't of seen before. Here are a few fun suggestions below.
A fun patterned background to display your table plan cards on will help them pop, fit with your theme and give your guests something interesting to look at. Helping you make this practical area more fun.
If you are into nature, using branches to help display your table plan is fun idea and looks very effective and whimsical. I sell lots of table plan tag options in different designs which you check at here >>
Photo booth's are an incredible way of adding fun to your wedding reception. You can hire amazing backdrops like this one, which I offer to my wedding couples, to create a fun area. By adding lots of fun props of your choice you can get your guests to act a little silly in front of it for the camera. Your guests will absolutely love it! You could even add personalised wooden signage to help it really come alive. I offer this bespoke service so you can have something especially made for your own photo booth backdrop, matching your colour scheme. You can read more about it here >>
Fun SignageGive your guests something to talk about, and wow them with your signage. Making the entrance fun and unique will make them buzzing with excitement to see what else is in store. Give them something unexpected like styling up your dance floor area with fun signage, like this fabric sign below that you can hire for your wedding day.
Chalkboard signs are very fun as you can write your own messaging and add illustrations to bring it to life. I offer a lettering service for events which you can read more about here >>
A big way to add some fun into your wedding is to choose decor that oozes the fun vibes. I am talking disco balls, which can be used in many different ways in your design. Whether it is on your place settings to add extra fun details. Pop on the middle of your tables for decoration, hanging from the ceiling above the dance floor for partying or used as fun photo props to use in a photo booth area. Using coloured glassware to your tables will inject a sense of fun. Adding fun lighting to your venue, especially neon lights and edison bulbs.
Creating a drinks station for your thirsty guests is such a fun idea. You could set up an area where your guests can either serve themselves, which works well if your diying your own wedding. You could use buckets with ice to keep beers cold. Or you can have servers to make sure everyone has a drink on arrival. If you have a bar at the venue why not jazz it up and make it your own with your choice of favourite cocktails, or signature drinks for your guests to try something new. Don't forget about the little details to entice your guests in with signage to show them what's on offer and drink straws popped in their glass for an extra fun twist. I offer personalised drink straws if you are styling glasses on the tables, or you can personalise with your wedding date and married name.

I think you can also add lots of fun with your stationery pieces. Some times it's in the smaller details that can bring a sense of excitement and complete an overall vibe. In order to start the fun early and help set the tone, you are going to need a fun invitation, a fun design with the appropriate wording to let your guests know what to expect is essential for building the energy. I have many fun designs in my shop for you to send your guests.
A fun fern leaf pattern save the date will help you set a fun, warm vibe.
Adding some pattern to your plain napkins is a really fun addition. If you're not planning on creating a table plan meaning your guests can sit where they like at your reception, this is a fun alternative option. You can find this fern leaf design here and other fun options here if you love a bit of personalisation.
Fun Dessert Display
Arranging your wedding cake, cupcakes, cookies, or an array of desserts so that it's fun and inviting for your guests to go up to, is an area you can really pull out all the stops. It can be fun and interactive meaning guests can choose from a selection and serve themselves. I think this adds to the fun because guests love choice and who doesn't want to go up twice with it comes to dessert time! You can make it a feast for there eyes making a fun area to be at. Children will love choosing from the fun selection.
I hope you enjoyed these fun ideas and use some of these in your day to bring the fun factor alive!!
