I recently attended a wedding where the couple had a wonderful idea! Rather than having disposable cameras on the wedding tables, where usually only one or two are keepers from each roll, this couple decided to ask the guests to take photographs from a list provided and for them to upload them to instagram tagging #mr&mrs.
Not only is this a great, cost effective way to get people to take photos at your wedding, but also a great way to get people interacting. Most people have a smart phone and an instagram account. This method is a great icebreaker, especially if not all the people at any one table are aquatinted with each other. Some of the photos on the list were relatively straightforward, however, some were a little more obscure – a great way to get people chatting.
Another wedding I conducted included a quiz, made by one of the bridesmaids, each table had to answer – it was a great way to get everyone on the table interacting, including various questions about the bride and groom. They excluded questions everyone knew the answers to – a fun challenge for the guests. Not only was it a great way to start people talking, it was also a great way to get to know more about the bride and groom.
Have you been to any weddings that had a unique touch you thought was a great idea at the reception?
