Top 7 Wedding Surprises That People Love
Posted by Genesis Samson on 03/05/13
Your wedding is the most important day of your life and you want it to be perfect. At the same time, it has to be spectacular for your guests too. Do you think a big surprise will “WOW!” your significant other as well as your friends and family? There are numerous ways to spice up your wedding and put your guests in awe too. Here are the top 7 wedding surprises from your experts at Flutter FETTI®:
1. The First Dance… Remix
You’ve probably seen those weddings on YouTube a dozen times before – bride and groom begin their first dance slowly and then break out into a crazy dance routine featuring the entire bridal party. If you think it’s overplayed, then think again. Most of your guests have seen enough slow dances to last a lifetime, so if you surprise them something featuring a bit more flavor, they’re usually thrilled. Plus, most people do their own personalized routine; there’s nothing cookie-cutter about it. As your friends and family watch you do your duet, have them shower you with metallic streamers from 18” Airless Launchers.
2. Flower Power Surprise
Table decorations at wedding receptions are usually pretty standard. There’s vase full of flowers, a selection of tall candles, and some form of crystals or crystal ware. Well Flutter FETTI has a tabletop surprise that will literally blow your guests away. Place our Tabletop Confetti Launcher within your flowery centerpieces and use a wireless remote to detonate a blast of confetti amongst all your guests – it’s quite the scene!
3. A Mystery Musical Guest
Does your significant other love a certain song or a big-name band? Booking the actual artist might be difficult, but there are plenty of cover bands and musicians willing to play at your wedding. Hire a local act and surprise your lover with that special song right after your first dance. Alternatively, you and your friends could give it a shot on your own too – we just hope that you’re a decent a cappella group. And make sure you have plenty of 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks around to shower your special guest with colorful confetti!
4. Confetti In A Cupcake
This is our favorite surprise of all. During the first (or last) dance, hand out “Wedding Cupcakes” to all your guests. These small white boxes are shaped like cupcakes and hidden inside are Angel Hair Metallic Streamers. As you enjoy your dance, guests can open the cupcakes in their hands and sprinkle you with streamers! Because our Wedding Cupcake party favors are so new, call toll free 877-321-1999 to place an order.
5. Dessert Food Fantasies
Everyone has a favorite food and some favorites work perfect for weddings, especially desserts. Does one of you love chocolate? Surprise your significant other with an overflowing chocolate fountain. Do you both love cupcakes? Replace the traditional three-tiered cake with three platters of homemade cupcakes, each decorated with your initials on the top.
6. Drinking Delights
A lot of couples offer standard “his” and “her” drinks at their wedding to give people something other than wine and beer to drink. Do you want a bigger surprise than that? Rent an elegant Champagne fountain and serve your glasses in a much more exciting way. Better yet, have an ice sculptor create a magnificent ice luge and ask your bartenders to pour mixed drinks through the frosty tunnel.
7. That Personal Touch
These ideas can be easy or difficult to come up with, but they’re always huge winners. Is your husband-to-be a firefighter? Exit the ceremony on a fire truck (with the department’s permission, of course). Was your first kiss at a restaurant only a few miles away? Request photos with your professional photographer at your romantic meeting spot! Whatever you do, remember not to tell anyone about your secret plans! Hearing all the “oohs” and “aahs” from your guests is part of the pleasure.
