Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, we know. There’s a million little decisions to make, a budget to consider and the pressure of taking a huge step in your relationship.

One way to relax (at least a little bit!) is to put things in perspective and remember that a wedding is really just a party. And parties are fun! That’s why we’ve compiled 27 brilliant ideas that will ensure you and your guests have a blast, no matter what.

1
A spy decoder save-the-date
Invitees can use the special glasses to view your top-secret wedding details.
2
Or a flow chart save-the-date
Inject a little humor into your stationery selection.

A popcorn box that doubles as a wedding program
Guests can munch while they wait for your walk down the aisle.

Mini tissue boxes for your cry baby friends
After hearing your vows, they'll need 'em!

A playhouse for your little wedding guests
You've got to keep the kiddos occupied somehow.

A funny sign to display at the reception

8
A make-your-own bloody mary bar = #BrunchGoals
We'll have ours extra spicy, please!

Or better yet: A French fry bar
Season them to your heart's desire. And the more dipping sauce options, the better.

A photo booth with life-size cut-outs of you and your boo
The posing possibilities are endless.
11
And don't forget cut-outs of your guests' faces to use as props

Or a video booth instead, if you want something a little more animated
Guests can share a story, give relationship advice or just goof off -- anything goes!
13
A shoe valet for tired feet
Invite guests to kick off their heels so they can *really* bust a move.
14
A flip cup table
Relive your college glory days with some drinking game fun.

Not really a beer person? Then maybe a whiskey tasting is more to your liking

Table numbers with corresponding pictures of you two at that age
A great way to share all those cute (and occasionally embarrassing) #TBT photos.
