Essential Additions To Your Wedding

The structure of a wedding is well known the world over – you have the vows, speeches, the cake cutting and a big party (with everything in between of course- you know the drill!). With more and more people edging away from the traditional wedding layout and with the likes of Pinterest adding to our inspirations and what can be possible if you think outside the box a little, the possibilities when it comes to making your wedding stand out are more exciting that ever! Wedding organisers in the UK have found that more and more couples looking to get married are branching off and exploring cool new ideas when it comes making their wedding day memorable and unique. Here are some of the latest creative additions to your wedding day that you may want to consider on your special day…

A wedding photobooth

A great way to keep your guests entertained and get some funny photographs from your special day is through hiring out a photobooth and allowing your guests to enjoy themselves pulling funny faces and taking home some keepsake pictures from the day. Regardless of your event, photobooth hire in London is always a good idea!wedding photobooth

An ice-cream van

If you are looking to organise a summer wedding, then an ice-cream van could serve as a fantastic accompaniment to your big occasion. Shop around and find the very best price in your area and find out exactly how much you are getting for your money as different ice-cream van providers offer different toppings and special ice-cream designs. Be sure to also consider whether you will need dairy free option to suit your guests too.

Sweetie stands

There has certainly been a boost in the number of people hiring out sweet stalls and stands at their weddings. Not only do these look great (particularly if you are after a vintage feel wedding) but they are also a great way of getting people to create their own wedding favours by putting sweets into personalised sweet bags or containers.

Cartoonist/ Caricature artist

What could be more fun than hiring a cartoon or caricature artist to sketch your guests?! This is a great way to entertain guests that are sitting down and resting from dancing and makes for a fun wedding favour too.

Bouncy castles

Nothing makes you feel like a kid again than being able to bounce around on your very own bouncy castle on your wedding day. Your wedding photographer will also have a field day capturing funny snaps of you and all your nearest and dearest.

How to Find the Perfect Anniversary Gift

Perfect Anniversary Gift

Finding the perfect anniversary gift for a matrimony or anniversary is supposed to be easy especially if you are the future/current spouse, a close friend or family member. After all, you are more likely to know what the recipient likes or loves. However, this is not often the case as with the choices out there, it is more confusing than ever to choose a suitable present. If there is a forthcoming wedding, the registry is a safe choice to browse for possible gifts. It will also provide an idea of what the future bride and groom like or need.

If you know the couple well and have the talent for creating art, you might want to give portraits of the couple. For those who have no time, gifting a partner or couple with a sketch of their wedding outfits is a good idea. Research also shows that ‘experience’ gifts are well-received. You might consider a spa day, weekend break or a hiking date complete with a picnic as presents. More information on planning a romantic surprise hiking getaway is available in this article.
