Time For Games
Couples who are young at heart and want to bring some old-school nostalgia to their wedding will love the idea of renting a skeeball or Pop-a-Shot set-up for guests to play with all night long. Even a bag toss game can be dressed up for wedding fun! It’s a great alternative for guests who need a break from the dance floor and parents with kids in tow.
Evoke the era of a time long ago with a hand-rolled cigar station. A few years ago I attended a wedding with one of these in place and it was a huge hit. Even non-smokers were lining up to get their very own in order to get up and close personal for the process that involves the vendor cutting a teardrop from a broad tobacco leaf, rolling it flat, then gluing, wrapping and twisting it into the final product.
A wedding planner friend told me she once planned a cooking class for guests during the cocktail hour. Because the wedding size was under 50, the couple was able to create a unique experience in which guests made their own dinner. However, if your wedding celebration is much larger, consider a beverage company that sets up a station and lets guests shake up their own craft cocktail. A friend employed Femme du Coupe at her birthday party and it was a great way to break the ice between guests who were strangers, a strategy that’s perfect for big weddings.
