From numerology to palmistry and other zodiac stuff, the astrologer will make sure your guests take home with them much more than just the wedding favors.

So, for your photobooth, how about a bunch of TV series- or movie-themed props? Like, the throne from Game of Thrones? Or, maybe, a Batman or Avengers Assemble gear? Rest assured, your friends and cousins will find it hard to leave the booth!
If yours is going to be a typical North Indian wedding, we’re sure the pheras will get extended till the wee hours in the night! So, to keep things upbeat during the night, place a funky snack and beverage truck alongside the mandap where the guests can replenish themselves and, most importantly, stay awake with you! Offering quick bites such as popcorn, ice cream, coffee, tea, quick sandwiches and even hamburgers, the truck will truly be the highlight of your décor.
This one’s our favorite! Buy around 40-50 pairs of budget-friendly flip-flops in neutral colors and varied sizes, and place them in a basket alongside the dance floor. Your female friends who’d otherwise be strutting in 6-inch heels will thank you for this brilliant idea, with the help of which, they’ll be able to dance their hearts out without having to worry about aches or balancing.

Candles, dry fruits, and silver coins are passé! For a wedding where beer flows like water and imported spirits are hot favorites at the bar, your guests are surely going to need an awesome hangover kit the next day. Assemble your own, or purchase them in bulk from the market, and put them in cool paper bags to create a unique wedding favor your guests would simply love you for!
Everybody may have smartphones with awesome camera functionality, but you wouldn’t be able to see all photos that people click now, would you? Therefore, get some disposable cameras, and place them on each table where everyone can click photos during the wedding. Take them back once the wedding is over, and you’ll have candid shots better than any photographer can click for you!

Nothing shocks the guests quite like a group performance, and one by your uncles and aunts might just turn out to be the game-changer of the evening!

Fun pieces of information such as hobbies and talents to the other little-known bits about their life would not only make for an exciting element for your wedding décor, but also make the guests feel closer to the about-to-wed duo.
