A big trend for 2019? Going the extra mile to make everyone feel really welcome! It may be your big day and all, but most couples tell us “guest enjoyment” is high on their priority list this year. The verdict? Unforgettable celebrations that everyone loves.
Watching your nearest and dearest mingle, enjoy the festivities and toast you with tears in their eyes will honestly be a wedding highlight. Which is why many couples are swapping out bomboniere and even snipping their guest list in favour of luxe guest experiences, wedding weekends, restaurant-quality food and wine, and catered after-parties. This is a trend with serious staying power!
Keep guests entertained with interactive ideas which you’ll also love, including a balloon drop, video and photo booths, on-site mixologists, tarot card readers (watch the line-up for this one!) Prosecco vans, ice cream carts and decadent dessert bars. A crowd-pleasing cultural activity is always a winner too, think all-inclusive Greek circle dance, Polynesian fire dancing (or fire twirling) or a Chinese tea ceremony. If in doubt, a fabulous fireworks display is perennially on point. Looking for ideas for your own special day?
