Menu Wine bottles (dark ones) –  labels taken off and black contact paper applied and an abbreviated menu written on it; one for each table.  Think black chalk board paint but we used black contact paper.  It was much easier since could write on it before applied to bottle.They really looked cute on each table.

@MrsMRS:  Thanks 🙂

@KCKnd2:  I was thinking wine flavored ice cream, but yeah, wine ice cream bar is confusing.  Maybe OP meant wine, ice cream bar?

We didn’t do a lot of extras, but we had:

Gift baskets with snacks in the hotel rooms

Bathroom baskets

Sparkler exit

 

We had some other “neat” touches, but they all had to do with our theme or family traditions.

@MrsMRS:  that ice cream sounds delicious, I’d love to try that strawberry one, or maybe the chocolate merlot….can I come to your wedding lol?  Your ideas sound awesome, your guests will definitely remember your big day.  I think the fact that your FI’s company has a part in your wedding is a really cool and unique touch.

I actually smooshed my table numbers and guestbook together.  I made it so my escort cards were puzzle pieces, the pieces fit together to make a picture on the cover of each guestbook.  The back of the guestbook has each table number (the standard “please leave a message for the couple to read on their # anniversary”).  If I were you, I’d definitely consider using your FI’s company to make your table numbers, it could look really cool.

@MrsMRS:  We stayed until the end and ended the reception with the sparkler exit.  We put a note in the program, so many guests stayed for it.  It was great!

I did these triangular shaped tent cards – 1 on each table. On the one side I had the menu, on the other I had a little description of each person in the wedding party and on the other I have a little quizz called “Bride or Groom” for each statement you have to guess whether it was about the bride or the groom. People really loved that idea as it got people at the tables talking to each other.

We also had a hot beverage bar with hot chocolate, coffee, tea, hot apple cider, whip cream, baileys and kaluha, sprinkles…

Oh and I also personalized my favours by thanking each person by name for coming.
