Does anyone have any ideas for unique or fun different things to do at a small vintage garden wedding? My fiance and I are super fun and not very traditional so we are looking for some creative ideas of things to do at our wedding, weither it be decor, games, ceremony, reception etc! We want to do something completely different but stay within the guidlines of a wedding. Any ideas?

I can’t think of anything that is super “unique”, because everything has been done before.
We are doing a cigar bar for the guys, candy buffet for everyone else, chocolate fountain, punch fountainers, outdoor smoking area [mainly for the cigar smoking guys], hay bale seating & fire pit w/ marshmallow roasting, dj, and photo booth.

jenilynevette: Yea I know, everything has already been done. We are writing our own vows and having the candy bar as well but I was thinking of having the chairs for the ceremony split and in as S shape because it is an outdoor location. I was also wanting to string lights and lanterns all outdoors and in a gazebo for the first dances so its pitch black all around except under the gazebo. Things like that. I guess since its such a small wedding, Im hoping people dont get bored and it still leaves them having had a good time and leave us with tones of cool memories.

We are having a small destination wedding, and therefore have pretty much eliminated all traditions/practices from it. I personally want my wedding to feel like more of a small party rather than a wedding reception. I love your idea of doing the lights and having the gazebo be under a “spotlight” I don’t think you’ll have to worry about guests being bored. The receptions/weddings I’ve loved the most are small and intimate. I also feel like it will give you more time to interact with your guests, opposed to rushing to say hi to everyone.
We’re basically doing a small dinner reception, we will be having dancing and drinking. I think ultimately that’s going to satisfy most people.
