Create a Unique Hashtag 

Though it is a tradition to hire your own professional photographer, there will surely be a lot more photos taken by your loved ones.

These can be a variety of things such as a photo with the groom’s mother or a shot with one of the catering staff. Guests can also help each other and it’s a fantastic way to break the ice too. You could even give away something very small to the person, or team, who find and snap all of the items first.

Organise a Flash Mob Dance

Flash mobs are a rising popular trend, and it's one of the most amusing ways to surprise your guests. Gather some of your closest friends and family in a choreographed dance and transform your wedding into an entertaining musical. This may take a couple of weeks to prepare prior to the wedding so you can all meet up for lessons and practice, but the results are always astounding. Make sure to film the whole thing and hand it out to all your guests after the wedding as an extra memento of the day.
