Whether you’ve found yourself with a surplus in your wedding budget or simply want to make your reception shine, your special day is an unrivaled opportunity to showcase your creative talents and give your friends and family something they’ll be talking about for months after your festivities.
Here are a few suggestions from The Park Savoy to add a swanky touch to your upcoming event. Don’t worry, you can still tell your guests they were all your handiwork!
1. Custom Cocktail Napkins
Sometimes it’s the little details that have the biggest resonance with your guests, and who knew that napkins could be such a hit? Customized cocktail napkins with you and your significant other’s names and a charming graphic are a quick and easy way to add a decorative touch without breaking the bank.
2. Eclectic Cocktails
While we’re on the subject of imbibing, creating a specialized drink for your festivities is sure to be a hit. Find a drink recipe that speaks to you and your betrothed’s tastes and one that goes along with your theme to incorporate it seamlessly into your wedding.
3. A Photo Booth
Renting a photo booth has become an extremely popular wedding trend that is a fabulous activity for your attendees. Best of all, you can get copies of every picture (candid or otherwise!) that you can add to your wedding album!
4. Themed Food Stations
Even if you have a rustic, traditional or other theme to work with, food stations are a fabulous way to impart a touch of your personality and showcase your creativity. Some ideas to consider are Farmer’s Market salad bars, outdoor fire pits with s’more ingredients and much more. There’s no limit to what you can accomplish, so start by picking your favorite dish and building the décor around it!
