Most couples look for unique elements to add to their wedding planning in order to make their ceremony or reception stand out. Typically, couples don’t want their wedding to be the same as every other wedding they have been to at any of the other Omaha event halls, but since there are so many ideas on the internet, it is sometimes difficult to come up with original and never been done before ideas.
One area where you can add a unique touch to your wedding is with some activities at the reception. In order to keep your guests entertained, you can add games, entertainment or special activities for your guests to enjoy! This could be anything from trivia about the bride and groom to a s’mores bar for guests to make their own dessert! Hiring some cool entertainment like acrobatics or a live band is a great way to keep the night exciting and really bring a unique touch to the evening!
A great way to customize the experience even further is food. There are many options you can do when it comes to the actual meal or appetizers. You can go with a buffet, a sit down dinner or even just an array of snacks for guests to choose from throughout the night. Some couples even opt for a more casual feel and bring in pizza to grab while dancing and mingling! It all depends on what feels right for you as a couple and keep in mind what you’d prefer to be eating on your wedding day because after all, the day is about you!
One of the most traditional elements of a wedding is the cake. If you aren’t too keen on cake, or you’re just looking to do something a bit different, you have lots of options for desserts as well! You may want to consider getting a very small cake for you and your partner to cut and feed to each other if that tradition is important to you, but serving other desserts to your guests is a great way to keep things fun and interesting. Here are some fun ideas for desserts other than cake!
Consider gathering inspiration from other countries if you want to keep things new and fresh. Cannolis are a great way to serve something unique that is easy to eat. There is no need for utensils with this dessert, which makes it awesome finger food! Just like cake, there are different variations of cannolis in order to satisfy everyone’s taste. Look at other traditional desserts from other countries in order to spice up your food options!
Ice cream sandwiches
Maybe you and your partner have decided on a summer wedding and want something to help your guests cool down. Ice cream sandwiches are a sweet, awesome choice for all weddings, but especially those that are during the summer months. These can be customized, giving your guests plenty of flavor options to choose from. You can have a fun time deciding on which cookies go with which ice cream flavors. You can even consider having the cookies decorated with your initials.
Another great finger food option that is elegant is macarons. If you are still wanting the traditional look of a cake, these are super easy to arrange in tiers like a cake! You can customize the colors so they fit your theme and make a beautiful design however you arrange them. These are another great option to fully customize flavors and give plenty of options to your guests, plus there is no need for utensils for these either!
If you’re looking to completely ditch the wedding cake idea, a fun and unique option is a doughnut wall! This is exactly what it sounds like - a wall with hooks that have doughnuts hanging from them! Be sure to check with the Omaha event halls to be sure they have the space for it. You can choose any kind of doughnut with different fillings. Plus, this makes for an adorable photo backdrop for you and your guests!
Whatever you choose for your wedding reception and dessert options, be sure that it feels like you and matches the theme you and your partners are planning for. Keep things simple and go with whatever feels right for you as a couple!
