Unique wedding party ideas for your wedding guestsby Liz Gatherer
Your wedding party is usually made up of your closest and dearest friends and relatives, it is a true honour to be selected as a member of the wedding party and guests are often intrigued to find out more about them - who’s who; how they know the wedding couple; for how long they’ve known each other for; and of course do they have any funny anecdotes that they can share!
We came up with a really fun way for your wedding guests to get to know your wedding party better, there are bound to be people at your wedding who don’t perhaps know some members of your wedding party - our fun introduction ideas for our bespoke and personal wedding brochures don’t just address this potential problem, but also act as a genius ice breaker on your wedding day.

Introduce your wedding party to your wedding guests
We create delightful personalised wedding brochures which you give to your wedding guests on the day of your wedding, use your Wedition to introduce your wedding party to your wedding guests in a fun and innovative way. Our couples tend to keep Wedition as a surprise from their guests, you can imagine guest’s delighted faces as they receive their copy and realise what it is!

Real Wedition weddings - surprise wedding party who's who
A&M asked their wedding party to send them a couple of paragraphs to explain how they first met, how long they have know each other and a memorable story, A&M didn’t say what it was for, they just said it was “something for the wedding”. What resulted was a heartwarming guide to who was who in the wedding party which the guests absolutely loved reading, it was a great way to get guests interacting with others on their table that they had perhaps not met before.

Real Wedition weddings - fun interview questions to ask your wedding party
G&A sent a few questions to their bridal party ahead of their cocktail themed wedding day:
- How we met.
- How I feel about being part of the bridal party.
- Fun fact about yourself.
- Describe yourself in a hashtag.
- A message for the new Mr and Mrs.
As well as including photos with the Q&A, we also created a blackboard style cocktail menu and listed each bridal party member’s favourite cocktail - martini’s seemed to be the most popular choice, especially the Pornstar Martini!
Real Wedition wedding - creative ideas for a large wedding party
H&R had seven groomsmen, seven bridesmaids plus parents and step-parents so they chose to include a photo of each person with their name and position within the wedding party.

Wedding party baby photo who’s who
Another fun idea for your guests to get to know your wedding party is to create a wedding party baby photo who’s who game. We did this for H&E Christmas wedding, they chose four baby photos and the guests had to match the photo to the name. H&E opted for a festive feel Wedition using their colour scheme of navy, green, gold and ivory.
We also did this for Z&J who were able to get baby photos of each and every one of their wedding party! Z&J's Wedition was styled to compliment their bright and colourful wedding, yellow was the lead colour with all the other colours of the rainbow shining through.
Real Wedition wedding - thank you message alongside baby photos
Wedition couple C&J wrote a thank you message and funny memory for each of their wedding party members and included these alongside a baby photo of each person! C&J asked us to create a blue and white Wedition with navy accents.
Fun ideas for child bridesmaids, flower girls, ring bearer and page boys
For the younger members of your wedding party, we can ask them a few fun interview questions or ask them to contribute a picture to your Wedition.
We have had some really hilarious responses in the past:
Will Mummy look pretty in her dress?
He shook his head it’s a “no” then!
Will the wedding be a fun day?
He pretended to be asleep and started snoring.
Will Daddy’s speech be good?
Again, he shook his head. Another “no”!
Real Wedition weddings - including your own children in a very special way
Our Wedition couple K&B had a travel themed wedding with a cobolt blue colour scheme, we created a postcard for each of their children with a few fun facts, from what they would mostly be up to if they were quiet and what career they might have in the future.
