There's tons of ways to get creative when it comes to your wedding reception, but what really stands out as unique among the rest? Here's some fun ideas for your celebration that may not have crossed your mind. 

1. KEGS

Yes- we know your wedding isn't a college frat party. But wouldn't it be awfully convenient to have the kegs out so guests could re-fill their own cups?

2. MOSS MONOGRAMS

These are a great idea for any rustic or garden wedding. Use the first letters in both your names to make it more personal.  

3. WINDOW SEATING CHART

Going for a more vintage look? Get ahold of an old desk and use it as your welcome table! It'll add a touch of character to your reception. 

5. SAUCES & SPICES

Give your guests a favor they'll actually use. Everyone appreciates a good bottle of hot sauce, and no nautical wedding is complete without Old Bay seasoning.

Wagons can be used for many things at your wedding celebration. From a dessert display to holding supplies, it's just as fun as it is practical!

Have guests sign bottles of wine in lieu of the traditional guest book, then open one each year on your anniversary. Viola! It's the guest book that keeps on giving. 

11. SEASHELL ESCORT CARDS

Ditch the stationery and go for something more festive to guide guests to their seats. These seashells couldn't be more appropriate for a beach wedding! 

12. FOOD TRUCK
