9 wedding entertainment ideas your guests will cherish forever
From a parade to a ride in the park—here’s how to treat your guests to the most fun time ever
Weddings are always a fun affair and are memorable for everyone who attends. However, there are a myriad ways to make your guests feel more involved on your wedding day. Here’s how you can keep them entertained.
- A Wedding, A Parade
There’s nothing more exciting than an over-the-top parade to kick off the celebrations. Once all the permissions and legal formalities are in place, bring all your guests together and set off on a parade that leads to your venue. Add to the festivities with a marching band to fill the atmosphere with celebratory tunes. Your guests will never forget just letting loose, dancing and having a good time.
- DIY Counter
Get your guests to actively participate by encouraging them to take on a DIY project. From putting together a mini scrapbook or creating a dessert in a jar—the options are endless! The DIY project can also double up as a wedding favour to gift your guests.
- A Cultural Rhapsody
Some traditions are sure to give you a thrill and make your guests join in on the celebrations. Whether it’s a ‘steal the shoes’ ceremony or performing a traditional dance, it will definitely enliven everyone’s spirits.
- Choreographed Dance
Everybody loves a large-scale choreographed dance sequence. Send videos to your wedding clique well in advance and organise a practice session prior to performance day. Learning and performing some synchronised moves will make for some lasting memories.
5. Wheel of Fortune
You can never go wrong with a little bit of luck (or tough luck, for some). Have your guests spin the wheel of fortune for a dare or a gift for them. It will surely produce some laughs and perhaps some awkward, yet unforgettable moments too.
6. Bring The Circus To Town
You’re never too old to enjoy a circus. Flying acrobats, juggling clowns, fire dancing and other nail-biting acts are the ultimate routines. Your wedding crew is going to be on the edge of their seat applauding in joy!
7. A Ride In The Park
Entertaining your guests is now a ride in the park—literally so! If yours is an outdoor wedding with a lot of space, arrange for carriages or bicycles to engage your guests. You can even keep electric scooters decked in flowers or open-roof rickshaws that guests can drive around the venue during the day.
8. Create A Gaming Arcade
Place sets of arcade games across your venue. Your guests are sure to appreciate the assorted gaming machines and the nostalgia it evokes. Arrange for a few wedding-related games that the guests can play.
9. A Sky Full Of Lanterns
Both romantic and exciting, your guests and you can light up the sky with Chinese lanterns.
It will definitely be a sight to remember and will also create personal memories for everyone involved. One cannot go wrong with this!
Keep your guests entertained and involved with these fun ideas for your big day. Which of these do you like best?
