5 Innovative Ways to Ensure Comfort and Creativity

The pressure is on to do something new and fresh at your celebration in 2015. Look at past trends and give them a tweak. From scouring Pinterest to reading blogs, you'll be inundated with creative ideas but always keep in mind the comfort of your guests. Check out these five tips that are sure to wow your guests and help you create a soiree that truly stands out.

Enlist a live event artist
Here's something few people have seen before: A live event artist who will actually paint your event as it happens, creating a piece of artwork you can cherish for generations to come. Boston-based artist Mark DeSilva specializes in this type of artwork -- check out his website for more information on how you can incorporate this incredible feature into your celebration.

Let guests go hands-free at cocktail hour
Wedding guests always look forward to cocktail hour but they typically have trouble drinking, eating, and mingling at the same time. To keep them comfortable, order personalized wine glass plate clips so that each guests can hold his or her plate and wine glass easily in one hand. This will ensure their comfort as well as incorporate a personalized touch they may have never seen before.

Personalize your photo booth
Having a photo booth at your event is a huge trend that's here to stay. Make yours stand out by personalizing your booth with a custom wrap: You can use an engagement photo for a wedding, a monogram, or even a pattern that coordinates with your event's d├ęcor. Then, set up the booth with your event hashtag so you can program the images to upload to Instagram and Facebook with the tag pre-populated in your guest's posts. Photo booths are something guests are now expecting at events, so turn it up a notch with this awesome idea to ensure it continues to be a crowd-pleaser!

Hire a same-day edit videographer
There is nothing as gratifying as same-day edit videography. From interviews with friends and family or event guests, to fun set-up and getting-ready segments, to special moments from the celebration itself, this video can be played at dinner or at the end of your event, allowing everyone to reminisce over the highlights of the day while it's still unfolding. Check with your videographer to see if this is a service he or she can provide for you.

Let your cake tell a story
Cake mapping is a new trend that allows your cake to double as entertainment. Rather than decorating your cake with flowers and elaborate icing, have your baker create a blank slate of white fondant. Then, using a projector (and working with your lighting team), broadcast images or video onto the cake itself--it could tell the story of your event or simply reflect a pretty pattern or animation. Either way, it will look stunning and tie the whole night together. Check out this awesome animated Disney cake as an example!
