Want to have your guests talking about your wedding for years to come? Dancing the night away to a fun DJ is always memorable, but why not surprise them with alternative entertainment, as well? Consider some of these sensational ways to liven up your reception!
After all, a picture is worth a thousand words! A photo booth is a great way to entertain your guests during the reception. Customize your photo setting to fit the style and theme of your special day. Whether you choose a vintage photo booth or a Volkswagen van that has been converted, capture all the silly antics of your bridal party. Photos, videos with green screens, and even flip books can be a lot of fun for your family and friends.
Late Night Snack
Keep your guests fed and hydrated throughout a late night party! A s’mores bar, cotton candy, or churros could sweeten the night, but don’t underestimate your guests’ hunger as everyone dances the night away. Burgers, fries and shakes or mini pizzas are great options, too.
This one is especially fun for the kiddos out there! Provide a variety of temporary tattoos for guests to pick out and play with. It will be a conversation starter with guests as they compare tattoos and where they chose to put it!
Bring in a Mixologist
A talented mixologist can add an exciting twist to cocktail hour or the dance party. By whipping up some unique flavors, guests can have fun talking about the drink options and trying one another’s drinks.
Spotlight Family & Friends
If you have a friend or family member who is a singer, musician, or even a magician, let them take the spotlight for a few minutes as they put on a special performance for your guests. This is a great way to involve the people you love in your big day.
Incorporate Cultural Elements
Celebrate your shared culture with your loved ones and introduce some traditions to your friends! Consider a special musical performance, an interactive dessert, or décor that speaks to your family history.
A live painter will bring beauty and anticipation to any wedding! The guests will get to watch a masterpiece in the making, and check in with the artist throughout the night to watch the progress. Plus, the bride and groom will get to take home a phenomenal piece of art that captures the essence of your special day.
