When it comes to planning your wedding, your guests may expect a high level of entertainment. So how do you keep everyone entertained in between all the formalities that come on your wedding day. We’ve put together our top 10 ideas for consideration of ways to entertain guests at weddings.

HIRE A PHOTO BOOTH

There’s no doubt that a photo booth at your wedding will go down a hit. It’s the perfect opportunity to grab your friends and family and create some wonderful memories. They’re fun, popular and provide additional keepsakes for guests. In addition, the happy couple will usually receive a guest book filled with amazing photos and notes from all their guests to look back on. So what are you waiting for, book that photo booth, grab those crazy props and strike a pose.

CASINO TABLE

Why not incorporate a fun casino night to your special day. Exchange your fun dollars for chips and play as you wish. Whether it be blackjack, roulette or poker, the choice is yours. Contrary to popular belief, a casino table is not real gambling, but rather playing for fun and for prizes. It’s also a brilliant idea for couples who love all things Vegas.

HIRE A CARICATURIST

If you’re looking for a unique idea, then be sure to hire a caricaturist. This will raise the laughter amongst your guests and will help to break the ice. You’ll see everyone mingling with one another as they compare drawings. It’s another great alternative keepsake your guests can take home and perhaps even frame and put up on their wall. Setting up is easy, as they require minimal space and can take care of themselves. This is perfect for all venues, but in particular the smaller ones.

LIVE MUSIC

Incorporating live music will set the tone and mood for your wedding day. It will unite your guests and create a memorable experience for all. From solo performers such as singers, cello or saxophone players or live group bands, this option will add a personal touch to your wedding. Live performers can really set the ambience in the room, while adding effortless sophistication to your day.

MAGICIAN

Most people have witnessed magic tricks on television, but what about in real life at a wedding. Magicians at weddings engage with your guests and somehow draw them into their tricks. As your guests see the close up of a magic trick happen, their reactions can often be priceless, providing fabulous photo opportunities for your photographer.

CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN

Make sure your guests don’t go home hungry by including a chocolate fountain. Popular for all ages, the mouth watering flow of the chocolate will have all your guests flocking to it. Choose your favorite dippers to go with the chocolate. These could include fruit such as strawberries and banana, marshmallows, or mini donuts.

WAFFLE/PANCAKE STAND

This is a simple sweet treat that can be cooked within minutes and then customised with your choice of toppings. Another great way to ensure your guests are kept entertained.

WEDDING SHOE GAME

Entertain your guests at your wedding by playing the wedding shoe game. To play, the bride and groom sit facing away from each other (this is usually in the middle of the dance floor) and take off their shoes. They trade one of their shoes with the other, so that they now have one of each. The MC, or organizer of the game will ask a series of questions about the couple’s relationship and to answer the question, they must hold up a shoe. If they feel the answer pertains to the groom, then they would hold the groom’s shoe up and vice versa. It’s a fun game to make your guests laugh about your relationship.

OUTDOOR GAMES / LAWN CROQUET

Outdoor games always tend to be a winner at many weddings. Why not give your wedding reception a French touch by adding lawn croquet. It’s perfect for those summer months with stunning garden grounds. Croquet will have your guests mixing and mingling in no time. Other options for outdoor wedding games include beer pong, giant jenga or ring toss.

FIREWORKS

If you really want to put on a show and entertain all your guests, then consider a fireworks display show. Having a sparkler send off is a nice alternative, while being simple and cost effective, however, a spectacular fireworks show is really taking it to the next level. These are popular to put on after your ceremony or when the night concludes. Ensure you obtain permission from the venue and have in place correct rules/guidelines from local authorities.
