There are many big days in your life, with your wedding and baby shower somewhere near the top of your life. For this reason, you want everything to go as planned from start to finish. And of course, you want to bring as much fun, excitement, and entertainment to the event as possible.
While no two people take the same approach to planning a wedding or baby shower, there are some basic tips that anyone can follow to make it more enjoyable and memorable for those in attendance. Here are five tips to guide you.
- Choose a Different Type of Venue
Don’t choose the venue that other people want you to choose. Choose the venue that’s best for you and the event that you’re having. And of course, your personal tastes and budget should also come into play. For example, if you don’t want a hotel wedding, look for something that better suits your style.
The best way to determine what type of venue is best is to visit several of them in person. The more venues you see up close and personal, the easier it becomes to choose the one that’s perfect for you. Don’t guess and hope you’re right.
Go the Casual Route
Many people believe that their wedding or baby shower has to be upscale and luxurious. This can be the case, but it doesn’t have to hold true. Everyone has their own tastes and it’s okay if you want to go the casual route. In fact, more people than ever are heading down this path as it gives them more comfort on their big day. Once again, this comes down to comparing the options that are available to you. Visit several venues in person so that you can see what best suits the look and feel that you’re trying to achieve.
Include the Kids
This is a particularly important consideration when planning a wedding. At first, you may feel that the presence of kids will make your wedding feel more like a birthday party. However, nothing could be further from the truth. The more you think about it the more you’ll realize that the inclusion of kids can bring a lot of fun and excitement to your wedding. So, before you tell people to leave their kids at home, think long and hard about what you’re doing. It’s possible that you could be leaving quite a bit of fun out of your event.
Opt for Special Effects
Many people don’t think about this, but it should be high on your priority list. For example, sparklers for weddings are becoming extremely popular. You can provide these to your guests so that they can light them when they give you your final send-off. Or if you’re having a baby shower, a blue smoke bomb (or pink if it’s a girl) could bring some excitement to the atmosphere. Best yet, you don’t have to break the bank to introduce some special effects. A few dollars here and there is all that it takes.
Most people have attended a wedding. Many people have also attended a baby shower. In other words, it’s easy for them to feel like they’re all the same. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Bring unique elements into your big day to engage your guests.
This starts with thinking outside the box. Let your imagination run wild, and if you need any help there’s nothing wrong with doing some research online. The ideas you find may not be 100 percent unique, but that’s okay. Your objective isn’t to be the first person to ever do something. It’s to bring fun and excitement to the day so that everyone involved has a more enjoyable time.
All of these tips will help you bring more fun and excitement to your event than you ever thought possible. Even if you only use one of these tips, it’s more than enough to take your wedding or baby shower to the next level. What other tips would you add to the five above?
