First-Anniversary Pinata Notes:  Bored of the traditional guest book? An innovative twist on well wishes and guest signatures  is a piñata! The only caveat is having enough room to store it for a year so if you have space, a piñata is a fun idea your guests to convey their happiness for your marriage.

Add a Fun Lounge: Similar to the intrigue of pop up beer gardens, transforming an ordinary outdoor space into a unique lounge for your South Florida wedding adds some fun to the celebration. It’s a respite and get away from the every day. Think of rental furniture that adds a dramatic effect or even a hammock or two. The dichotomy of a park or rustic venue against classic living room couches and shabby chic hutch to display cocktails and hors d’oeuvres really sets a scene.

Hire an Authentic Barista: Imagine instead of traditional coffee service, guests were invited to enjoy a freshly made cappuccino or latte from an authentic barista. Flavored syrups, chocolate shavings, cinnamon and whipped cream brings the local café right to your reception.

Campfire: S’mores never gets old. Whether it’s a sense of nostalgia, sweet tooth or the camaraderie of the campfire, the melty gooey goodness keeps guest coming back for more. Just ask your caterer! Make sure there are plenty of napkins to go around!

An Incredible Exit: An unexpected exit like fireworks or choreographed last dance will make those who skipped out early wish they could have stayed to see it.

Late Night Food Truck: Let’s face it, hunger strikes again after a night on the dance floor. Bring out that running-down-the-street-after-the- ice-cream-truck childhood curiosity with a yummy food truck! From donuts to cupcakes, taco trucks and fancy foodie delights, these mobile culinary treats are certain to satisfy!

Customized Popsicles: There are numerous companies that will not only customize popsicle flavors but also words on the sticks. From Mr. and Mrs. to Now and Forever, an advance order allows for a fun wedding treat on a hot day or sultry night.
