So, you want to be different and unique. Well, there are a lot of different things you can bring to your reception to add a fun element.
First, think about your style or what you think your guests would like. Some fun things I have encountered as a wedding planner are photo booths to start out with. These are a big hit and you can really get some crazy fun shots in that tight little space. Once the pics are taken, it takes a few minutes for them to come out of the machine and then you can add them into the bride's photo album and add little comments or your best wishes! While these are fun they do add another expense to the budget. I have seen them for around $1,000. So while they may not fit into everyone's budget, I will give you some other ideas too.
Everyone seems to love the chocolate fountains at the wedding, with all the little treats. Gosh what doesn't taste good when it's dipped in chocolate?! These can set you back about $500 and up depending on how long you keep it going. They can get messy, so always get one that comes with a supervised attendant to clean up the drips and to restock all the goodies.
What about a martini ice luge? What a cool refreshing treat for your guests. What's better than your Martini drink coming down very cold ice before it hits your glass? Aaahh. This is a great surprise for the guests at a summer wedding when it's hot out. You can serve a signature drink or two.
A midnight snack of pizza, coneys or even sliders works too. You could also bring in a magician for tableside tricks. Just use your imagination and you will think of something that will work for your reception.
