Everyone wants their wedding or event to be remembered and be the best it could possibly be! Here is what you can do to ensure it’s memorable for you and your guests!
Incorporating ALL of the five senses may propel your event to the next level for you and your guests. If you can’t achieve all five senses, aim for at least three.
See it – SIGHT:
Sight is a major one, think about:
Colour Palette – Different colours invoke different emotions and how people interact with one another. Dark colours will make the room feel smaller, as for lighter colours can make a room feel larger. If you do choose to use a dark striking colour, choose a soft tone. For example: Brown, use a chocolate brown as it is a warm tone.
Lighting/Decor/Layout – You can use lights, candles and patterns to make an event visually appealing. Think about your tablecloths, centrepieces, flowers and how the room is set out; is it easy to navigate through? Is there enough space between chairs?
Feel it – TOUCH:
Guests are more likely to stay if the ‘environment’ is comfortable and if they have something to do!
Comfort – Choose comfortable seats and lounges, consider the temperature or climate of the venue. If it’s too cold people will feel uncomfortable, so make sure it’s a pleasant temperature.
Decor – Use tablecloths, napkins and/or chair covers with textured fabric, even have menus printed on fabrics or textured, glossy or grainy paper.
Even have something the guests can interact with on the table, like a fun puzzle or game. A photo booth is always a great idea too! Set up a station where guests can even cut out their own props!
Hear it – SOUND:
You can really set the mood of your Wedding/Event with sound.
Music – Have music that all ages can enjoy play continuously in the background, not exactly like elevator music, but lounge music. Book a DJ or band to dance the night away. Make sure the volume isn’t going to burst ear drums!
You can use a ‘signature’ sound to draw your guests to a particular area and for effects.
Taste it – TASTE:
Never under estimate the power of tastebuds, they are your buddies. Food and beverage are a huge influence on an event and can make or break it. Make sure you taste test any food/cake before you book with a caterer or venue!
Find the right balance between sour, salty, sweet and bitter and keep in mind guests with dietary requirements! Food and beverage can even be an event within itself, think about colours and design.
Sniff it – SMELL:
People tend to forget how powerful this sense is! Smell is closely linked to a person’s memory and emotion, so if you have a scent at your Wedding/Event and a guest smells it somewhere else, it instantly triggers memories! Exactly what we are after!
Scent – You can use anything from burning scented candles, timed fragrances, incense and flowers. Just make sure you don’t overdo it! Make it subtle but enough to be noticeable!
You can even have scented menus, now that’s different!
Make it an event never to be forgotten!
