Order pizzas and have a delivery guy go room to room in the middle of the night or throw a surprise midnight brunch, but everyone loves a midnight snack right? Have a hangover hamper in the room filled with goodies! Right from basic necessities to fun stuff like a hangover kit, a welcome hamper is really going to make them feel special! Add a thank you note for added charm! More ideas on what to add here.

Check out Kanika and Atul's Real Wedding on WMG that had some crazy fun videos! Plan a flash mob With the two of you kickstarting things, have your waiters break into a jig and plan a fun flashmob which is going to woo your guests! The surprised look on the faces of those watching a flash mob are priceless! This is a good idea for the Sangeet or the Mehendi. Organise fun activities for the guests Hire dance instructors to teach them a rehearsed dance for the Sangeet or if you're having a seaside destination wedding, how about you make interested and adventurous guests give snorkelling a shot? You could also have sketch artists make their portraits so they can take 'em back as a keepsake!

Then make sure to organise something that interests them as well- like say cooking classes or even DIY classes like making khadi/ block print sarees? Have a costume party! We Indians are lazy when it comes to costume parties, so how about you throw a surprise one and also hire costumes for everyone? All the guests have to do is pick and change! Give them a celebrity surprise! Hire a celebrity like an actor or a singer to come and perform- but make sure the first time people find out about him or her is when they hit the stage! How awesome would that be?

Give them a parting shot Pick one amazing drink - a shot to be precise and pick a reaaalllyyy good one. Some might say a paan-shot is good fun, maybe a signature drink or a fun tequila mix - whatever it is, goodbyes at the door with a shot sound amaze, right? Sounds fun right? Any more ideas?
