These days, it’s hard to create a unique Wedding that will delight guests, but still be personal, but we’ve searched the globe and come up with 11 new, exciting and different ideas that will make your Wedding THE Wedding of the year.
1. Make Your Grandma the Flowergirl
This is perfect for ‘adults-only’ Weddings! Often, our Grandmas are left out of the Bridal party, however, enlisting your favourite Nan as a Flowergirl will create some magical photos (plus we bet she won’t be able to wipe the grin off her face all day).

5. Prediction Cards
These are guaranteed to result in some serious giggles. Hand out ‘prediction cards’ to guests throughout the evening and ask them to fill them out. Include predictions like ‘how many children you’ll have’, ‘what their names will be ‘, ‘what’s the biggest thing the Bride and Groom will disagree on’ and ‘Who’ll have the biggest hangover’.

6. Guest Art
If you’re having an outdoor Wedding, this is a fantastic way to create a keepsake. Have a canvas set up and attached paint-filled balloons to it. Throughout the day, invite guests to throw darts at the balloons. At the end of the night, you’ll have an abstract work of art to cherish.

7. Signed Heels
Ask your Bridesmaids to sign the bottom of your Wedding Shoes. The word is that whoever’s name doesn’t rub off by the end of the night is next to get married.

10. Personalised Place Cards Against Humanity
Cards Against Humanity is the adult party game that everyone’s playing at the moment, so incorporate it into your Wedding by giving each guest a personalised escort or place card with their name on the back. They can then add this to the pack of their own Cards Against Humanity game set.

11. Breakfast Bomboniere
We all know that the day after the Wedding is bound to be a bit rough. Too many cocktails and champagne can lead to a sore head, so leave guests with a breakfast pack bomboniere complete with a cinnamon scroll, protein ball, pastry and coffee beans as a take-home gift.
