Unique Hollywood favors
Looking for wedding theme ideas for wedding favors? Here is one – party in a flapper/gangster/old hollywood style! My husband and I did! It was the most fun and memorable experience for not only us but also most of our guests. Deviate from a regular norm and you will make a special event for your guests that they will always remember. Not only will it be a special day in your life but it will be a memorable day for your guests as well. So you aks us how did we do it? Here are some tips.
IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU
Instead of planning a wedding reception where everything is about us, we took a different approach. By going with an unconventional theme, we gave ourselves a great basis for thinking outside the box. The number one goal in the planning process was to entertain our guests, make sure that everyone is having fun, and that they remember our wedding as one of the greatest parties they have gone to. It worked! Almost three years later, and we still get raving feedback about how cool everything turned out.
HELP YOUR GUESTS GET IN THE GROOVE
Once we decided on the theme, the ball started rolling. We researched ideas, historical date about the 1920-1930 period, fashion trends, musical and cultural clues – all the information helped with incorporating cool ideas into the wedding reception, our outfits, wedding invitations. Most importanly, we have designed a flapper theme website and posted links and suggestion for our guests on there. By doing extra work and providing ideas to your invitees, you show to them that you care and that you want them to be part of the event. Not everyone maybe familiar with the flapper era, and honestly, not everyone may have the time or the drive to do the research themselves. If you want your guests to parttake in the theme, help them out. After all if you provide them with some candle wedding favors it will light up the place.
