LET GUESTS LEAVE THEIR MARK

Keep your wed­ding memories in­tact with th­ese ideas for your spe­cial day

Style Magazine - - Wedding -

In the furore that is a mod­ern wed­ding we are so ca­joled into lov­ing our spe­cial mo­ment and every inch of our spe­cial selves that it is easy to lose track of some­thing im­por­tant: the peo­ple you share it with. Let them leave a me­mento. Some­times it is the candid memories of the guests’ an­tics that leave you with the big­gest smiles af­ter all is done and dusted and you are flick­ing through photos with your new spouse.

HERE’S SOME GREAT IDEAS. DIS­POS­ABLE CAM­ERAS

Place one at each ta­ble.

Have your MC in­vite guests to use the roll of film on their ta­ble.

They must try and get a snap of each per­son at the ta­ble.

As your wed­ding rolls on it is guar­an­teed you will have some beau­ti­ful, funny and chaotic photos that the hired pro­fes­sional never could have cap­tured.

MEM­ORY JAR

Place a large glass ves­sel with a lid to one side of your re­cep­tion.

Place a bowl of small slips of pa­per and a jar of pens be­side this.

Have your MC an­nounce that the new hus­band and wife would love each guest to write one mem­ory to place in the jar, and write their names on the back.

PO­LAROID TREE

This can be a dec­o­ra­tive false tree, brown string with pegs strung dec­o­ra­tively or a piece of beau­ti­ful drift­wood or dried tree branch.

Place a Po­laroid cam­era be­side the tree so guests can take a selfie.

En­sure there are pegs for guests to pin their photo to the tree and a jar of pens so mul­ti­ple peo­ple can write their notes at the same time.

FINGER­PRINT TREE

Have an artis­tic friend draw the trunk and branches of a tree on a can­vas.

En­sure there are plenty of off-shoot­ing branches.

Place an ink pad (what­ever colour you like) be­side the can­vas so guests can put their finger­print as a leaf on the tree.
