Everyone wants their wedding to be unique and memorable. The key to pulling this off is to find some creative ideas for weddings and incorporate them into your special event. This will go a long way towards keeping all of your guests entertained and focused on your special day instead of secretly texting their friends or checking Facebook on their cell phones. It’s also a great way to keep the bride and groom relaxed and having fun.
1. Have Live Music
Having live music at your reception can be a great way to keep your guests out on the dance floor and entertained. You don’t have to go with standard wedding bands or music either. If you love to swing dance, why not have a swing band playing at your reception. Have a bluegrass band or jazz quartet or any other kind of music that you like. Your guests will love the fact that there is live music and that you have put your own special stamp on your reception.
2. Have Fun And Tasty Food
You don’t have to go with the standard wedding reception fare. Spice things up with tasty Mexican or Asian hors d’oeuvres, hire a caterer to do barbecue the night before your wedding, have a big popcorn or cotton candy machine at the reception. Think outside the box!
3. Have Fun Games To Play
You can have entertaining games for everyone to play. These could be outdoor games or indoor games. It’s your choice. You could play lawn games like croquet or bocci ball. Get a pinata or play pin the tail on the donkey. The sky is the limit!
4. Rent a Photo Booth
One great way to keep your guests entertained and create lasting memories all at the same time is to rent a photo booth for everyone to use. Later you can make albums of the pictures everyone has taken.
5. Have Some Added Entertainment
Surprise your guests with a magic show, dance company, caricaturist or some other unannounced entertainment or show. Your guests will absolutely love it and remember your wedding for a very long time.
6. Plan Fun Activities For The Kids
Make sure there are fun things for the kids to do. Have games, activities, coloring books or toys in a designated kids area. Having special activities for the kids to do that tie into your wedding theme is a great idea. It’s also a good idea to hire a babysitter or activities director to oversee the kids and make sure they have fun things to do.
