I don't know whether it is my addiction to "Don't Tell The Bride", but I am always on the lookout for fun, memorable and unique ideas to have at weddings.
The best weddings are always the ones that are unique to the couple, have a fun element and ones that you can take away wonderful memories from; whether you are the ones getting married or a guest.
One thing that I think is really fun to do, which is becoming very popular these days is having a photo booth at your wedding reception. Professional photographs, although lovely for the ceremony and group photos, really have no place at a wedding reception where you want to have fun in a more relaxed setting.

As well as having fun props and getting random combinations of guests posing, this is a really fun addition to your wedding reception.
An essential to a good wedding reception is the music. What you do not want is an empty dance floor or even worse, twenty drunk people doing the Chicken Dance courtesy of a bad DJ. A great idea to do is add a song request option to your wedding RSVP invite. When you get the cards back, simply create a playlist, adding a few of your own favourites to the mix!

Another idea would be to invest in some personalised wedding pens. They can either be added to your wedding invitation envelope or placed on the tables at the reception, perhaps to use in the next idea.
The people you ask to your wedding are (in an ideal world) all the people that you love and spend time with. A great idea would be to leave these wedding advice cards out for each guest on the tables in place of a wedding guest book. Cheaper and will invoke some great memories in years to come.

Finally, at the end of the night when toasts have been drunk, many drinks have been consumed and that wedding breakfast seems a very long time ago, how about a popcorn food stand?
