@janie-janie: I love this twist – I agree that it the special unique fun things that make the wedding really stand out.

We are trying to capture some elements to make our quiet afternoon wedding more playful and fun – magnetic poetry kits at the tables and a photobooth (not unique but not necessarily in line with the formal tone) and vintage crooner music as the background.

Okay yeah I would have hogged that karaoke machine all night. No joke.

The most recent wedding I’ve been to had edible centerpieces. We made short work of them while we were waiting our turn for the buffet.

Not that unusual, but I LOVE when food is available at the end of the night.  I tend to eat small amts often and I am always starving at the end. Especially if there is a cocktail hour. I overeat there, dont really eat my dinner and am starving later. I tend never to touch the desserts so my tummy begins to growl!

A cousins wedding had sliders and mini cones of fries passed around

I went to a wedding where at midnight….they had a hot dog stand brought in! It was so cute and vintage looking! Plus, it was nice to grub after dancing for hours. 🙂

We were invited to a wedding reception at the groom’s father’s beach house.  The invitation said the dress code was casual, so I went and bought a nice, but casual summer dress, still worrying that I was underdressed.

When we got to the wedding, the bride was in a sundress and the groom had no shirt on. There were beer cans in coolers, BBQ on the porch and people played games on the beach. It was one of the most fun weddings I ever went to.

A snow cone machine!  Personally, I’m not huge on snow cones, but all the kids there loved it, and then all the adults added various types of alcohol to theirs, so everyone enjoyed it.

I went to a wedding where they had a silhouette artist. She cut out profiles of the guests and then attached them to pretty pieces of papers as a keepsake.  It was a lot of fun!

@janie-janie I almost peed from the “butt shot” story!!  Can I ask how you set up your faux-photo booth? i am too broke for a real one, and if we could DIY one, that would be seriously the coolest thing ever!!!

I went to a wedding this past weekend and instead of having a traditional guest book to sign they had a “wishing tree” for us to leave wedding wishes for them on individual cards that we then hung on the tree. I thought it was really cute and had never seen it before, I’m just not sure how they are going to store them for the rest of their lives. I guess they will ditch the tree and keep the cards in a box or something… anyway, it was neat!

We’re having a wish tree and we plan to just keep our cards in a box. 🙂

I guess I haven’t seen a lot of unique things at weddings… nothing stands out in my memory…

@rachel3212: we did something similar, but we had them slip the words of wisdom into a photo album already on the table.

At a friend’s wedding they had a late night buffet, but also a specialty coffee bar, it was awesome! We stole it for our wedding a couple months later 😉
