Part 7 of Lights, Camera, Action!

Action Stations are quickly gaining popularity at weddings. Why? Because they make for great ice breakers if your guests don't know everyone at your wedding! Action stations get your guests up and mingling while you're taking pictures or a moment for yourselves. Some fun stations to think about for your wedding should include, Photo booths, Adult Snow Cones and a favorite of ours since we’re lucky enough to have our own fireplace is roast your own S’mores. Recently a couple had a build your own ice cream sandwich station, Ice cream cookie sandwiches as an extra dessert. A sweet treat for an extra sweet event, it is fair to say everyone screamed for ice cream!DIY Ice cream sandwiches Action Station

Games for everyone!

Having various games at weddings such as mini-golf, bat mitten and Corn-hole, lead to some fun candid shots. Besides getting guests out of their seats and mingling, games get your guests away from the just hanging out by the bar, which will inevitably help keep your tab down. Really it's a win-win :-)

Consider having various games for all ages such as mini-golf, croquet, bat mitten and Corn-hole. These games lead to some fun candid shots and help keep the kiddos entertained.

Lighting, fun and right photographer lead to some great pictures! Come up with a clever hashtag so all your friends and family can see the photo’s when you post and so you can see some of the shots from your guests. Not good at creating clever hashtags? I know I’m not. Make it a game at your bridal shower, best hashtag wins a bottle of wine, a pedicure or maybe just the bragging rights of knowing they came up with your special hashtag.

Make your Reception a Party!

Instead of asking yourselves how to keep the kids occupied during the cocktail hour or reception, think about your entire guest list. Great food and drink is a must, but even better is to add to a few games or ice-breakers to get guests mixing and mingling before they sit down to dinner.

For a twist on the traditional, take a look at a few of our favorites:

Corn Hole

We love weddings with Southern charm, and what’s better in the south than Corn hole… or a good old fashion bean bag toss – no matter what you call it, this cannot be a bad idea.  Imagine how much fun your guests (and you!) will have sipping a cocktail on the terrace and tossing a beanbag? Plus, the options are endless for creating your very own custom corn hole set.

Photo Booth

Okay, so you probably already have a photographer…but having a photo booth at your reception where guests can take their own pictures is always fun too. Whether you rent a photo booth or make your own, offer props and signs for guests to use while striking a pose. With a photo booth, you can capture the great moments your photographer may have missed while taking your glam shots!

Wedding Piñata

One of our favorite new trends is the wedding piñata! We’re not talking about a donkey or a cartoon character you find at the generic party store down the street. These are serious paper art pieces designed and constructed to complement your wedding. And couples aren’t stopping there — fill it with small favors for your guests like lottery tickets, personalized pins, small toys (for the kids) and mini plastic liquor bottles (for the adults).

Bocce Ball

Can you say ice-breaker in Italian?! Bocce Ball is the perfect opportunity for your guests to let their hair down and get to know each other better. Lawn games pair great with outdoor weddings with warm and sunny weather – which pretty much describes all San Diego weddings!

A Spectacular Send-Off

Let’s not underestimate the power of a spectacular send-off. Once guests are riding high on a night of dancing and drinking (open bar, right?) sending you off in style can be a fun way to end the night. Offer up a fun way for guests to wish you well as you end . Bubbles and sparklers are tried and true choices, but don’t limit yourself to these! Other ideas may include throwing confetti, having guests create and toss paper airplanes, or having them attach a secret note for the bride and groom on a balloon and letting it go!
