Even after that, they can burst poppers and make some noise for the couple and their happily-ever-after.
- Introduce another sub-event to the main event: Little things can bring joy to the wedding ceremony. The friends of the groom or bride can get-together and arrange for a cake cutting ceremony. This will find a place in the hearts of the couple and also in a wedding photo album. When they look back, they are sure to find awesome memories.
- Plan a group gift: This is a good idea when the guests want to gift something memorable as well as useful. This group gift will be cherished by them and is definitely bound to find a special place in their home and hearts.
The emotional aspect of fun
Even though the fun element in a wedding involves a lot of laughter and noise, it can bring tears to the eyes of the couple too. The moments can be emotional as they signify a very close bond between the guests and the people of the day. They will be cherished forever. The fun and noise add to the joy and tears of the day.
Any attempt to make the moments special will often make the people emotional. And if it’s a wedding, it’s doubly so, because it is a very special day in the lives if the couple that cannot be lived twice. The fun and the noise can never be forgotten as it is the way of reliving the moments after the ceremony is over.
Why is it important to plan in advance?
It is important to plan the fun in advance so that the people keep their schedule free for the day and do not miss out on the fun. Also, by letting the event manager or the wedding planner know about what’s going on, one can ensure that the timing is not messed up- it does not coincide with any other important program or alter the timings of the other programs, but rather should be incorporated seamlessly in the flow of events.
It is always good to let someone from the host’s side know of the surprise element so that they can keep it in the dark by not letting anyone from their side ask too many questions.
Plan out the fun elements well in advance and have a really fun and blast during the wedding ceremony!
