Anything Can Happen!

I was discussing weddings with someone recently who was lamenting that she really loves yellow and ombre but that who has a yellow ombre wedding?  I told her that as far as wedding colors, everything goes, and it's totally up to the couple what they want to see happen.  I promised her some inspiration pics of cakes in particular, so for your consideration, I give you yellow ombre cakes!

Tulips - Too Perfect?

Keep Your Guests Entertained!

by Jenny Bryde 10. May 2015 14:54

Your guests are there on your big day to celebrate your love, but let's be honest.  There are times of your wedding day where the guests do a lot of waiting around.  How about when couples disappear for what seems like hours after the ceremony to take pictures before the reception?  Or how about the long buffet line where tables have to wait to be called to eat?  Today's post is all about simple games and activities to have around your reception to keep your guests entertained!  

 

A kissing menu: make your guests "work" to get you to do a little kiss.  Conga, anyone?  

Give guests a selfie spot with polaroids and a clothes line.  How cute!

Let your guests put their two cents in for where you guys could go for a date night.  

In this example, disposable cameras and scavenger hunts were given to kids, but any age would have fun doing this activity!

Remember fortune tellers from grade school?  They're back!  Alter the info so that it's all about you two, and your guests will love reliving this old game!

Let guests debate on their answers in this fun "who said it" game.

Mad lib advice cards will have you laughing or crying for years to come!
