1. Play rock paper scissors to decide who says their vows first

How much fun does this look.  Don't forget to record the look of complete bemusement on your guests faces (you should let the vicar or registrar know beforehand)

Wear your tattoos with pride on your wedding day by adding a bit of bling - you love them the rest of the year so incorporate them on your special day.  Will also work great with bridesmaids by adding gems to match your colour scheme.

5. Greet your guests by serving them yummy snacks

This is a great idea if you're looking at saving a bit of money.  Instead of offering them expensive sparking stuff when your guests arrive - try greeting them yourselves with an offering of sweet cakes or delicious canapes...they won't even notice the missing bubbly.

6. Create a 'Guest Box' instead of a Guest Book

Rather than getting your guests to write in your guest book - blah blah congrats etc.  Get them to record a message instead.  You can even incorporate it with a photo booth and insist they use the props.  The more drunk they get - the better the message.  Such fun!

7. Turn your ring bearer into a high-security agent.

I love this idea of the ring bearer doubling up as a security man and it's a great way of turning what can be a scary daunting experience for a young one into something super important and very fun!

8. Bling up the wedding venue toilets

How impressed will your guests be when they visit the loo and see you've even gone to the trouble of decorating it for them - it will be the talking point for every wedding after that.  Go on - be a trend setter and it's only a bit of fabric and some rose petals.

9.  Vodka Shot Tableplan

Get the celebrations started with this low cost idea.  Write the names of all your guests on each shot glass and display them at the entrance.  As they arrive, they have to find their shot and drink it.  Underneath the glass will be their table and seating number.  Make sure you use non alcholic for the kids and those who don't drink.  If you're feeling extra naughty - make yucky shots for those you're not too keen on - ie add a touch of chilli etc.

10.  Make a game centrepiece.

Scour charity shops and find fun games that multiple people can play and use these for your centre piece.  A great idea especially for the evening and takes little effort and hardly any cash (will also keep the kids occupied for hours)
