If your wedding day is the happiest day of your life, it makes sense that you’ll want it to be the most fun too.
Unfortunately, weddings can often feel boring and stuffy, exhausting both the happy couple and the guests that attend.
The good news is there are plenty of ways to spice up your wedding day and make it more fun with different types of entertainment. Read on to find out what they are.
Games bring people together
Games are such great entertainment for a wedding, not only because they keep everyone entertained but also because they are a brilliant icebreaker.
Indeed, some types of games like giant chess, Jenga, or even lawn crochet will have all your guests getting along like they have known each other for years.
Another way to use games as entertainment at your wedding is to include things like old-fashioned fairground attractions.
Think hook-a-duck, knock over the cans, ring toss, and that sort of thing. Some people have even embraced ax throwing as part of their wedding entertainment, which is a novelty that you can be sure most people have never done before.
Music is the food of love
Music is one of the most popular types of entertainment for a wedding, and there are so many options to consider including DJs for the disco part of your evening.
Many people like to have a live band or performer at the wedding now too, although it can be quite challenging to find one that suits your musical taste.
However, some websites cater to wedding bands specifically, or why not try an open mic that is happening locally? The reason is that there you will find the newest talent looking for their big break, that will not have played at anyone else’s weddings that you know.
Take a break
Weddings can be exhausting, especially if you are the one getting married, so do not forget to schedule some breaks if you need them.
A good way of doing this is to have your reception in the same hotel that you will be staying the night, then you and your other half can retreat to your room for 15 mins for a quick sitdown away from everyone else, and then emerge refreshed and ready to enjoy the rest of the entertainment.
Stop the kids from getting bored
Last, of all, everyone wants their guests to think their wedding is unique, but often the little’s ones’ needs can be forgotten.
However, kids have an even lower tolerance for boredom than adults so making sure there is plenty to keep them entertained too is vital.
The good news is you can do this in a myriad of ways from having a dedicated children’s entertainer like a clown, or magician to investing in kid-friendly things bouncy castles.
Another sport option is to add a ‘quiet pack’ to the table setting of each child, containing things like coloring and sticker books, as well as games and pencils.
Then you can be sure they will have plenty to keep them entertained during the speeches!
