Host, live music, illusionist show or sand animation is great if you can afford such an assortment of entertainment for guests at a wedding. And if not? Be ready to take on the role of a holiday scriptwriter and be puzzled by the question of how to entertain your guests. Chanfashion has collected 10 worthwhile ideas for you that will make your wedding time fun and interesting for everyone.
Crossword about you
Prepare questions about your couple and code them into a small, beautifully designed crossword puzzle. There may be questions about your favorite films, memorable dates, dreams and life aspirations. You can make your rebus in a large format, one for everyone, or print out many copies for each pair of guests. As in any game, even here the winner is entitled to a small present — this will create the necessary excitement!
Relatives and friends on your special day will not just be there, they will be beautiful and in a very good mood! But these are ideal conditions for vivid photos for memory! Give guests the opportunity to make a hundred selfie-photo in a specially designed photo zone. The two main accents are the background and props. They must match the general style of the holiday. Remember that not all guests know how to pose. This is where a box with bright accessories will come in handy. You can put funny hats, turntables, bright lips or fake mustaches in it. And don’t forget about plates with hashtags your holiday. So you can collect an unforgettable mosaic of your own wedding in social networks.
Food class or tasting
Why don’t make your evening only entertaining but also useful. Invite a sommelier arrange for guests an excursion into the world of wine aromas, or a confectioner who discover the secrets of making chocolates. Such leisure will require proper zoning and careful preparation. But believe me, it’s worth it.
Wish clip for newlyweds
A wedding movie with the participation of each guest will become a real gem of your family collection. Invite a cameraman who will film guests and then professionally edit short reports. You can ask the facilitator to come up with interesting questions, do it personally, or leave the whole initiative to the direct participants. Shooting is better to start 1–2 hours after the start of the banquet. By this time, guests will completely relax and completely immerse themselves in the festive atmosphere.
An unusual surprise for guests — a cartoon as a gift! Invite an artist whose style of portraits impresses you and will organically fit into your wedding format. While the one who wants to get a drawing is posing, other guests are happy to watch the work of the master.
Ice cream truck or cotton candy
If the wedding takes place in the warm season, give the guests a real childhood dream. A cheerful ice cream truck will be a bright accent of your wedding decor. Believe me, not only children, but also adults will want to take a picture near such an attribute. Perhaps it is worth making a table next to it, on which there will be vases with a variety of powders. Each guest will want to decorate the ice cream to their liking. An equally original solution is to treat guests with cotton candy! There is nothing difficult in the process of creating a sweet cloud, and in the photographs the delicacy looks advantageous.
floor standing XXXL games
domino, Django, scrabble or tic-tac-toe large format will captivate not only children! In the garden or in the banquet hall, allocate a place for the games area, just away from the speakers and dance floor. So you can place a couple of soft poufs or bean bags. It would be great to find large chess like in Harry Potter!
As you can see, many children’s games fit perfectly into the format of a wedding party! Happy people are ready to have fun like children! Blindfold an adult, give a special bat and point in the direction of a bright figure in which sweets and souvenirs are hidden — we guarantee you have not seen such excitement for a long time! Entertainment, watching which is no less fun than participating!
While the female half of the guests will be busy preparing chocolate masterpieces, the men will not be bored! Rent a table football, for example, and so that the guests do not forget that they came to the wedding — modify the players! How do you like this idea?
Letters to the future
This can be the format of your wedding wish book, or it can be a self-contained task idea for guests. Prepare a cute postcard for everyone and offer to write a message for your newly created families! In America, there is a tradition to distribute the dates for sending such letters, so that the newlyweds receive them throughout the year, for each holiday. But we do not advise to complicate. It will be great if your girlfriend takes care of the shipment.
Another variation of the wish book, which is not banal and will entertain your guests! Chanfashion has two ideas for you:
- order a figured wooden puzzle (it can be a heart, your initials, your symbol), take it apart, leaving only a few elements, place the details side by side — your guests should select a part that they can attach to the existing ones and write their wishes on it. So, the assembled puzzle will be completely filled with warm words of your loved ones.
- puzzle assembled — your photo, and guests can leave wishes on the back of the details. Such a souvenir collected by your family will decorate your apartment and will remind you of a wonderful day.
Classic pastime — board games. Lotto, “Who’s Who”, Mafia — a lot of options that will captivate your guests, make them laugh, or vice versa, require maximum concentration. Fortunately, now there are even specialized desktop stores, and the assortment includes products with an age category of up to 99 years! Explore, choose, have fun with your family!
A wonderful highlight of an outdoor wedding celebration is a burning fire, which creates an atmosphere of romance and comfort. Each of your guests will happily sit down near the fire, because it is not without reason that fire is one of the trinity of things that you can look at forever. If you want to create a warm atmosphere in the evening, make several small fires. And if you want a spectacle, you can make one huge fire! And, of course, a photo session on its background 🙂
We wish your couple inspiration and opportunities to have an incredible, beautiful and fun wedding! We hope our article will be useful to you.
