Your big day is right around the corner. A wedding day is meant to be a joyous celebration of love and unity. Your friends and family will come together to celebrate your marriage, and while you may have meticulously planned out quirks like the buffet, dessert, floral arrangements, and more, wedding entertainment may be an underdeveloped feature of your wedding. Looking for some easy tips to incorporate more entertainment options for your guests on your big day? Here are some unique and/or classic ideas to keep your guests (and you) completely entertained!
1. Have a live painter on hand!
Having a live painter on the day of your wedding can have guests completely poised and happy to have their portraits painted, and it can be a lot of fun to watch these caricatures being developed. As a bonus, guests can keep the paintings as a sweet memento from your wedding to remind them of that amazing day. It’s a double win!
2. Have a silent disco!
Sure, dancing is expected at weddings, but a silent disco instantly takes this activity up a notch. If your wedding is outdoors or you have a noise curfew, the music doesn’t have to stop because your guests will be getting down with a pair of headphones on instead of listening to music through a speaker. Your guests will have a great time, whether they’re dancing all night or observing this silent dance party.
3. Photo booth!
You can’t go wrong with a classic photo booth as the perfect source of entertainment for your guests. Stock up on a few silly and cool props and your guests will be hogging the photo booth all night long! The pictures will also serve as the perfect memory from such a special day.
4. Invite guests to a treasure hunt!
Leave little clues and have a scavenger hunt for guests who are interested in participating. Whether it’s little clues about you and your significant other, random trivia about pop culture or anything else, guests will be thoroughly entertained trying to figure out the answers. Offer a sweet little prize like a dessert basket or gift card as an incentive for guests to turn this into a friendly competition!
5. DIY Cocktails
Give that reception cocktail hour a boost! Lay out a large selection of spirits, mixers, and garnishes to let your guests play the role of bartender. There will be a lot of laughs and well-wishes for the happy couple shared over drinks!
Your wedding day is all about you. It would make sense you want to keep guests entertained to thank them for joining you in this celebration. The tips above should help provide entertainment and memories for your guests and you to reflect on for years and years to come. If you are hosting an outdoor wedding, tents are the perfect solution to keep warm and covered as the wedding festivities continue. Looking for a tent rental in San Francisco?
