While it’s great to have professional photos from the wedding, today, more and more couples also have photo booths at their weddings since it’s one of the best ways to make any wedding stand out. The great news is that you can build your own photo booth for your wedding. If you want to remind your guests how wonderful your wedding was, send them a beautiful photo with a thank you note afterward.

2. Wishing tree

Cut one branch off of any tree and plant it in a small pot. Lay out small pieces of paper with ribbons tied through them and ask your guests to write advices, wishes, and tips on them and hang them on yor wishing tree. It’s fun and interesting to read those wishes and advices after your wedding or honeymoon.

3. Homemade wedding cake

If your friend or family member can make great cakes, ask them to make a wedding cake for you. This way, you will save money and have a super delicious homemade cake. After all, a cake made by someone close to you is much better and tastier than store bought, isn’t it?
