14 Sep Pinatas Delight Destination Wedding Guests
Just because a wedding is set to take place at an exotic location, miles from home doesn’t mean happy couples can’t have a surprise or two up their sleeves. Brides and grooms who want to delight their destination wedding guests with some truly unique reception entertainment might want to jump on latest trend in hip nuptials – wedding pinatas.
Best wedding piñatas
That’s not a typo! Wedding pinatas are the latest sensation sweeping the bridal planning world for very good reasons: they’re fun and they add a lighthearted touch to the festivities that is sure to get people up and out of their seats.
Although similar in concept to those colorful cartoon character pinatas so popular at children’s birthday parties, the wedding variety offers its own unique spin. There are even boutique companies springing up to create special designs meant to delight couples and their wedding guests. If a wedding pinata sounds like the perfect addition for your destination wedding, be sure to consider these things:
Wedding pinatas can be custom ordered from companies that specialize in creating pinatas and other party favors. Brides and grooms will find a number of distinct designs available to suit their sense of style. Popular choices include wedding roses, bells, ampersands and hot air balloons. Some companies are even willing to create multi-layer “wedding cakes” to enhance the festive atmosphere at receptions.
Wedding pinatas might be grown up versions of the child’s game, but they’re still pinatas at heart. That means guests will expect items to victoriously fall out when they manage to crack through those outer walls. Prizes to include can vary greatly based on the couple in question and attendees. Couples who are planning destination weddings for adults only may want to consider such items as scratch-off lottery tickets, tiny plastic liquor bottles and gourmet candies, among other things. If children are on the guest list, a combination of trinkets for all ages might suit the best.
Bringing a wedding pinata onboard a plane might be quite the trick. With that in mind, it’s a good idea to work with your wedding travel advisor and/or a resort’s wedding planner to get the appropriate details for having the pinata shipped to the site in advance of the ceremony. Filler items can be pre-stuffed, brought along on the plane or picked up at the destination, depending on the selection desired.
Other materials needed
Be sure to check with resort staff about the availability of a stick or bat guests may use to take swings at the pinata. Again, bringing such an item on the plane might be a challenge to say the least. Don’t forget to stow a blindfold or two in luggage though.
If getting guests out of their chairs to have a good time at a destination wedding is the plan, pinatas will do the trick. This growing trend is gaining such steam because it’s fun, unexpected and is sure to please.
