Get guests home safely with artfully displayed taxi information
This idea is as practical as it is pretty! To avoid unsafe situations with drinking and driving, provide an easy way for guests to contact cab services in your area. This way, everyone will have a great time at your wedding, and not have to worry too much about finding their way back home or to the hotel!

The balloon release first-look
This is one of the most adorable ideas for the first look photos that we’ve seen in a while! The idea is that each person hold a bunch of balloons as they’re being led to their first look. When it’s time, they release the balloons and get to see their future spouse! (via Unique and cool wedding ideas that we love: part 2 | Wedding Party)
Team bride or team groom badges
A fun way to help your guests get to know each other is by giving them “bride” or “groom” badges at your wedding day or at an event prior. Guests can wear the badge so that they can easily tell if someone is an acquaintance of the bride or groom – it’s an automatic icebreaker, and makes for a great conversation starter among your guests as well!

"Something fun for guests to do at the table for a wedding! What should we name our kids? What is the most romantic place we should visit? What is the best marriage advice you have ever received? What is your favorite memory of us? Where do you see us in 25 years? When did you know we were meant for each other?" [via]
cute idea to preserve your bridal bouquet:
"If you know your girl is a little picky, and will probably want to be in on the whole diamond buying part… try proposing with this love letter ring FIRST and then she can pick out her own engagement ring!"
hang a large empty photo frame up at your next outdoor event (cough cough wedding) with a disposable camera nearby. you may finally get some pictures of the family that will last a lifetime.
So in love with this idea… “supply some fun things for guests at your reception venue bathrooms. Gum, floss pickers, hair spray, scented body spray, bobby pins, mouth wash.”
Print your wedding program on paper bags filled with confetti! Have your guests throw the confetti at your ceremony’s recessional.
