No couple wants their wedding to be boring! You may have been to a wedding where you counted down the minutes until you felt you could leave, and you don’t want your wedding to be anything like that. You want your guests to have a good time and enjoy themselves as they celebrate your marriage to the love of your life!
There are traditional parts of your wedding reception, such as the dancing and the bouquet toss, but there are so many other ways you can entertain your guests. Check out a few of our faves!
A photo booth can be tons of fun, but why not think outside the box? Hire a professional caricaturist to create fun art of your guests that they can keep and display in their homes.
An alternative to the traditional photo booth is a video booth, where guests can leave fun messages for the bride and groom to enjoy later.
Want to get your guests more involved in your reception? Consider handing out awards for things like Best Dressed and Cutest Kid. You can offer fun custom trophies or even little prizes for each winner.
Nothing goes with an open bar quite like karaoke! Encourage guests to belt their hearts out to their favorite tunes.
A little competition can add a lot of fun to your reception. Have a specific song during your dance time where everyone can show off their moves. Don’t forget to cheer your guests on!
Want to thoroughly embarrass your new spouse? Send your friends and family down memory lane with a slideshow of old photos documenting your lives before you met, as well as photos of your relationship as a couple. You may be surprised how many of your guests will watch your slideshow!
Step away from the traditional sit-down dinner with food trucks! This is the perfect fun and informal touch to your wedding reception and gives your guests multiple options to choose from for dinner.
Ice Cream Station
For a tasty, do-it-yourself treat, let your guests build their own ice cream sundaes. Provide a variety of toppings, including syrup and candy to let guests of all ages create their own delicious desserts!
Instead of traditional flower centerpieces, set different board games at the center of each table for your guests to enjoy. Make sure to choose games with minimal pieces and that are short and easy to play so everyone can have a good time.
If your wedding will be during spring or summer, consider setting up some fun backyard games for guests to play before and during your reception. Ring toss, bean bag games and bocce ball are all great ways to keep your guests entertained.
If you’re hosting your wedding day in cooler temperatures, consider having a campfire in the evening to warm everyone up! Toast marshmallows, sing songs and end your wedding reception with a cozy fire.
Want to end your wedding day with a bang? Fireworks make for amazing photos and are a great way to entertain your guests and get a truly memorable send-off.
