Does the thought of hearing the well-worn chorus of “Iva, lilek nhobbok” (Yes, it’s you I love) at your wedding reception set your teeth on edge? Xemx is undoubtedly one of the most beloved Maltese songs, but if you’re not the traditional sort, you’ll probably crave something a little different – from the music to the food, dances and dress code. Here, then, are some cool wedding ideas to incorporate into the biggest and most important day of your life, brought to you by the team at Portughes Dry Cleaning, leading launderette in Malta.
1. Interactive food stations
If there’s one thing that guests are sure to comment on after the party is over, it’s the food – so leave them with something to remember by setting up an interactive food station (or two!) Whether you go for a sushi-rolling station or a pizza bar, this will allow your guests to customise their own snacks and ensure that their stomachs will be left satisfied, no matter their tastes!
2. Change up the First Dance
Are you and your better half both fans of video games? Kick up the post-ceremony atmosphere a notch by getting the bridal and groom’s parties to compete against each other on Just Dance or Guitar Hero – it’s fun, modern and will definitely break the ice among people who don’t know each other that well. Otherwise, go for a choreographed flashmob set to your favourite music, or perhaps a bout of karaoke – it’s entirely up to you!
3. Create a wedding piñata
It’s not just for children’s parties! You can fill your wedding pinata with anything you like; popular ideas include mini-bottles of booze, yummy sweets such as salty caramels or even wedding photobooth gear (if you plan on having one) like fake moustaches, bowties or eyepatches.
4. A video confessional booth
Give your guests a fun activity to participate in by allowing them to record their own “wedding confessionals”. Rent a video booth where your friends and family can leave an on-screen message, and afterwards, collect all the clips and hand them over to a videographer to edit them all into one film.
5. Change your outfit
Wine or food stains on your new wedding dress? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Choose a shorter, more party-like dress to wear to the wedding reception – not only will it take your guests by surprise, you’ll also feel more comfortable.
