The welcome table is your first opportunity to welcome guests and set the tone of your evening so you should incorporate your personalities and creativity into the table! We’re considering creating a sign to guide our guests to a welcome drink table (cold lemonade or iced tea bar). We’ll tie it into the rest of the wedding ambiance by decorating the table with similar decorations as the head table.
For the guestbook, some love the idea of a book they can flip through with the names of everyone who attended – but Joshua and I are a bit non-traditional in that sense. We are looking into a wild idea of having everyone in attendance assist us with a painting by throwing darts at a canvas lined with balloons filled with paint. This would occur in a roped-off area so all of our adult guests can leave their mark on the artwork that we will display in our home forever! We’re also going to have two video cameras at our welcome table, requesting each attendee to leave a few words of advice via video and we can later edit it into a fun snippet of messages from our loved ones!
Sometimes, it’s the little details that matter most. I tend to remember small, but meaningful details when I look back on past weddings. I hope to leave the same impression on our guests by putting special touches amidst our wedding day festivities.
