One huge trend for weddings in 2018 is emphasizing the guest experience at your wedding. While guests have always been invited to participate in games for the newlyweds, many people look to have an unforgettable experience at a wedding now.
Here are a couple of ways I thought would be a great way to enhance the guest experience:
A Not-So-Traditional Guest Book
Guestbooks have typically been used to send the newlyweds good wishes for their marriage. Though traditional guestbooks ask for guests to physically write something down with pen and paper, think about changing it up. Have guests take individual Poloroid shots to scrapbook themselves. Or have them record videos to compile later into a larger guest-video.

It’s no surprise that food is always a big part of weddings. Change things up from the usual seated dinner with an interactive buffet, like a build-your-own bruschetta or sundae station. Or incorporate some local favorites so that out-of-town guests can appreciate their travel time. You can even make the food Insta-worthy (Coffee in a cone, anyone?).
Social Media Engagement
Wedding hashtags are so… 2016. While it’s still fun and convenient to incorporate a wedding hashtag to easily find your guests pictures on social media, there is now an emphasis to create Instagram-worthy photo opportunities. So nix the photo booth and create a profile picture-worthy background instead. Floral walls have been around for a while, so add a sign to make it more personalized.
