If you’re all about changing it up, check out these non-traditional ways to spice up your special day!
Instead of having your traditional catered desserts, think outside of the box. Donut walls are the trendy must have- at all events. They have so many perks: style for days, Variety of flavors and, budget friendly! Serving donuts as your cake alternative, as part of your brunch reception, or maybe as a pre-ceremony donut treat, we know that donuts deserve all the attention cake gets!

Non-dancing receptions are becoming common in offbeat circles, so it’s no wonder folks are considering different types of activities. One thing that is unbelievably fun, whether your talented in this area or not, is a good ole fashioned karaoke battle. Karaoke battles are often a great way to get your extroverted friends to become free entertainment of the night. Everyone has a blast watching their friends humiliate themselves and It’s even more fun to actually participate.

Outdoor wedding lawn games are a killer way to keep kids and kids-at-heart busy at a reception. They're even more rad at a no dancing reception. Take advantage of a good season and some outdoor space for corn hole, and giant versions of your favorite nostalgic games like Jenga and 4-to-Score. Plus, you can make things a little more intimate with custom logos!
One of the most innovative wedding alternatives we have seen. Instead of tossing the wedding bouquet, tie in a love lock theme by locking the bouquet in a birdcage. Get a bunch of random keys. Each of the single ladies in attendance grabbed a key and attempted to unlock it! This allows everyone a sneaky chance to win without a huge display!

Although this idea may be a little more expensive than rice, the photos will make you not regret it. This Colorful, mixed confetti is all over the internet today and it’s obvious why. It adds color and glitter to any situation. So, what could be more fitting than sparkles flying through the air while your friends and family send off the happy couple!
