Event Tips and Tricks - Modern Bouquet and Garter Toss Ideas

The bouquet and garter toss are some of the oldest traditions, but I'm finding more and more couples omitting this from their wedding reception because it doesn't fit their modern day style. Here are some alternatives that I've seen at actual wedding that might inspire you to think of something super special. 

One of the best things I've seen in lieu of flowers are toys - stuffed teddy bears, fake pomegranates, you name it. Whatever it is, make sure it's something fun that will get the crowd going and will fit the theme of your wedding. 

Another thing I've seen is a cash bouquet. Extra points if you have the receiver of the bouquet donate that money to the charity of their choice. 

Nerf guns make the whole event better. Newly weds can find a way to hide nerf guns throughout the venue and then during the reception, initiate a nerf gun fight everyone can participate in. 

 I've also seen a dance competition happen that the newly weds can judge. Have a small prize for the winner and get the runner ups to come to the dance floor to get the party going.

Event Tips and Tricks - How to Get Your Dance Floor Going


Welcome to another episode of events tips and tricks! The number one question I get asked is "how can i get my friends and family dancing?"

Tip 1 - Make sure you are on the dance floor. Your guests are more likely  to dance if you are.
Tip 2- Take a group photo just before opening the dance floor. That way you'll have all your guests there.
Tip 3 - Invite your guests join you during your first dance. Then, have the DJ switch to a fun song to get the party started.

Here are just a few tips and tricks to get the crowd onto the dance floor. Happy planning!
