Provide a “drizzle” bar for them take their snacks and treat their popcorn (caramel, salt, cheeses, shaved chocolate, etc.). It makes a great take home gift for those who attend.
Fill mason jars with the petals from different flowers, those that accentuate the theme of your wedding. Decorate the lid with a picture of the bride and groom, cut circularly to fit the top. Then somewhere on the outside of the lid, poke a hole and stick one flower (representative of the petals in the jar) through the top of the hole.
Have each of the guests when replying to your R.S.V.P., indicate their favorite mixed drink of choice (juice or tea for the non-drinkers). Place their names on the side of the jar and fill with their favorite beverage. Leave enough space so when they enter, they can fill their drinks with ice. Make sure they have a paper straw to drink from.
They are simple, inexpensive ways to entertain your guests without being too traditional, yet still expressing the fun and original ideas you have to make it a great day indeed.
