5. Mini food buffet with takeaway containers!

As far as wedding planning ideas go, this could be the most fun for you and your guests! Be it a buffet table filled with sweets, brilliant baked goods or some fruit, having a snacking station on the side will ensure that your guests have happy tums throughout the affair.

Quick tip: Instead of favours, having takeaway bags/containers can be a real treat for your guests.

6. 3D wedding guest book

From signing wooden love hearts that slide into a giant picture frame, an image that forms a big picture, even a fingerprint tree for your guests to Jenga blocks with messages from your guests—these alternatives to wedding books can add a touch of rustic yet elegance that everyone will want for their wedding!

9. Personal centre pieces

Childhood toys/ pictures or beloved family objects can make for great centre pieces as well as table numbers with a little note attached to show the significance of the number to your relationship. All can replace the traditional flowers if you’re looking for something different yet beautifully sentimental.

10. Handmade decorations

Carnival themed or orient inspired, handmade origami flowers, centre pieces, or hanging ornaments, not only look beautiful as part of a wedding reception, but are also a cost-effective and add yet another wonderfully personal touch to your nuptials.

11. Give the kids some crayons!

Great wedding planning ideas always include the kids at the event.

No doubt there’ll be a child or two at the wedding and no doubt they’ll be running around in a seemingly uncontrollable frenzy; to keep them occupied for as long as possible, adorn the kids table with snacks and crayons with paper/drawing material as placemats—be as creative as your imagination will allow!

12. Create a unique wedding program

Give your guests a laugh by either poking fun at your wedding through the program, making your program in the style of a newspaper or making a program out of something you both are obsessed with. Who says they have to be dull?
