Whether it’s your first dance as a couple, a parent dance, or a dance with your best pals, breaking it down on the dance floor can be a lot of fun! Add some choreographed dance steps and practice them ahead of time to make this time-honored tradition extra entertaining for your guests!
“Line dancing” is another fun way to encourage crowd participation. Ask your DJ to periodically play some well-known group dance songs to inspire your people to get up and moving.
Artists & Artisans
Hire artists or artisans to share their talents and craftsmanship at your reception.
Kick the party up a notch by handing out glowsticks, stylish shades, feather boas, and beads! This is a simple, yet effective, way to encourage crowd participation in the festivities.
Use artistic instillations to enliven your wedding décor (think sculptures, illuminated signs, and other life-sized artistic structures or props). This is a unique way to bring sophistication, interest, and whimsy to your event.
Games & Puzzles
Bring on the games! Provide a few organized activities to break up extended periods of mingling and small talk. For example:
- Arcade games like Pac-Man or Pinball
- Life-sized board games like Jenga, Checkers, or Tic-Tac-Toe.
- Lawn games like Corn Hole, Horse Shoes, or Ladder Golf
- Custom puzzles made from pictures of you and your spouse
- Wedding Mad Libs
- Shoe Game
Capture candid moments of guests in a photo or video booth. Stock the booth with wearable props and/or a custom background to make the experience even more fun, and admit guests at cocktail hour to maximize interest and exposure.
- Dry Ice
Enhance those dance party vibes by bringing in a dry ice machine! Your guests will feel like they are dancing on clouds (or starring in their very own music video).
- Cultural Element
Give a nod to your heritage and provide memorable entertainment for your guests by adding a bit of cultural flavor!
