Extra Special Wedding Touches

There is a lot going on during a wedding reception, but there is always room for some extra special touches. We're talking about some little details that couples have added to provide their guests with some extra entertainment and fun for the evening. [Photo by Susan Elizabeth Photography]

Live Painting

You can hire an artist who will work on a painting during your wedding. They will capture the atmosphere of the wedding and add to the painting as the evening goes on. A double win- you get a keepsake and guests get to check in as the painting comes to life.


Caricatures are such a fun thing for people to do, especially couples at a wedding. It's something different and gives people a break from dancing, if they are looking for that. It can also serve as a favor for people to take home with them.

Photo Booth

Photo booths have been popular for a while at weddings. There are a lot of different styles and packages you can go with for these. Make sure you figure out what would fit the best within your venue and where the venue would place the photo booth. If you're looking for something a little more unique, check out the VW Booth Bus!


If your venue has a fire pit somewhere on site, s'mores are a fun dessert/late night idea for your guests. Ideally, you can have someone from the venue manning this station because they can get really messy!

Cigar Bar

If your venue has an outside area right off your ballroom, this could be a good fit for you. You can provide the cigars for your guests or you can hire a cigar roller which adds an extra element of fun.

Ice Cream, Candy or Coffee bar

Sure, it isn't a kids party, but who doesn't love a good ice cream or candy bar!? It's always a station that guests love to see. Candy is great too because they can head out the door with it! Want something a little more "adult"? A coffee bar is great and you can add in some mixers like Baliey's. Cupa Cabana specializes in these unique coffee bars for your reception.

Lawn Games

Lawn games are a great addition if you are having an outdoor wedding or a wedding that also has a large outdoor space. You don't have to go crazy here but something as simple as corn hole could be fun. If you want to get fancy, you can look into giant connect 4 or Giant Jenga.
