If your wedding theme is beach inspired, you’ll want to snag a set of these driftwood beach table number holders! We spotted them over at Once Upon A Shore‘s shop where Tami creates amazing beach wedding decor. These table numbers are a favorite because they’re made from reach driftwood! We’ve never seen anything like it before. You know beach weddings can be jam-packed with delightfully themed decor and these numbers are your reception table’s finishing touch.
This photo’s making me thirsty! Over the past few years, the use of mason jars for wedding glassware has exploded! These mason jar beer mugs have been showing up at weddings filled with a couple’s favorite craft beers and cocktails. Want to pick up some for your wedding reception? Here you go!
If you’re inviting kids to your wedding, you’ll probably want to keep them entertained, right? If not, they’ll get bored and unless they have something to do they’ll be taking turns trying to sneak icing from your cake on their fingers and play hide and seek underneath your decorated tables.
Their parents are probably keeping a watchful eye, but doesn’t that sound like what you’d do if you were a kid bored at a wedding? Me too. So, let’s change the dynamic. Let’s make it fun for them. Let’s make kids a part of the party. They don’t want to sit through speeches and wait through dinner. They aren’t that interested in dancing, at least not the slow stuff. And they’re all dressed up and their bowties or dresses are uncomfortable and all they want to do is play. So let them! Here are some ways you can keep kids entertained at weddings so they can be a part of the fun (and their parents can enjoy the party all night long). Enjoy!
This might be the cutest thing I’ve ever at a ceremony. Flower girls being pulled on a wagon by the ring bearer? Now that’s adorable.
Use a projector and a screen on a giant white wall to project video games! Wii, Kinect, Guitar Hero… the options are endless! Kids (and pretty much everyone at the wedding) will want to play! This works especially well if there’s a room off to the side at your reception so as to not distract from the goings-on of the reception itself.
Check out this ecstatic couple jumping the broom at their wedding reception. This fun custom can symbolize a new beginning and a sweeping away of the past. Their reason for jumping the broom was to continue a family tradition. This photograph and wedding was captured by Kelli from Third Line Studios. Do you plan on starting or preserving any traditions at your wedding?
