Wedding is the D-Day for bride and groom and they enjoy their special day. But what about the attendants? Some of them might get bored. You would never like your guests to nap extemporaneously during the ceremony. You have to plan some nice wedding entertainment ideas to keep your guests involved during the whole event. Here are some to keep guests on their toes.
Playing bocce ball with all the guests as teams is great fun. Throw those bigger bocce balls as closer to the pallino (the target) as possible. Getting closer to pallino will get you reward. No guest can feel bored playing it.
It’s an entertaining reception game where guests, who volunteer for it are supposed to find some already hidden items in the surrounding area. The one who finds the most, gets some special gift. Maybe a kiss from bride. Or you can use an iSpy Scavenger Hunt card, and ask the volunteers to take pictures of what’s listed in limited amount of time. Here are more details about how to play this game.
It’s a yard game that will keep the guests of all the age groups entertained and moving for hours. It’s easy to play which brings a friendly competition. Two to four players can participate at a time. All you need is a leveled ground.
Placing and playing with those giant tumble tower is great fun for all. Player has to choose one specific block and move it skillfully by using physical and mental strength. No one can feel boredom while playing it.
It’s probably the most popular and funny lawn game at the moment. The player has to toss the bean bag on the dummy board. The one who throws the bag in the hole will get more points.
Make them dance on the beat of music. Dancing in couples or in group, it would be fun both ways. Get a dancer to train your guests for dancing. This combine dancing will surely give them an unforgettable experience.
Call some DJs, musical band to entertain your guests with live music performances. You can also arrange some Mariachi band specially if you are arranging a Mexican-themed wedding. A wandering mariachi band among the guests would surely entertain them.
Don’t let your guests just sit idly for hours. Involve them in some lip syncing on their favorite hits. Karaoke is the trendiest of wedding entertainment ideas today. Turn the last couple of hours of your reception into a live music show. Below is a fun game shared by a kind reader:
In a recent wedding event that I attended, bride and groom arranged this funny activity to entertain the attendants. They used to call the names of any two people sitting in the audience. This wedding guest’s duo (strange for each other) was supposed to sing a song picked by bride and groom. The wedding guests sitting in front had to decide the winners by their votes through claps and applause. It was quite entertaining overall and kept all of us engaged.
It’s the trendiest idea these days. Instead of writing down your comments in guest’s book, use a guest box with a video cam inside, placed in some corner where guests are supposed to record their video message for the newlywed couple.
A super cute table at your reception filled with sequins and multicolored confetti where guests are supposed to fill little bags with confetti using scoopers. Its great fun showering these confetti on the couple and all over. Will look great in pictures too.
Rent an ice cream, donut or any other dessert’s truck for the guests other than the dinner that you have planned. They would surely love this idea and will be refreshed instead of keep sitting on their chairs.
Silly yet entertaining wedding pictures can create a great memoir for you. Create some unique backdrop where the newlywed couple and all the wedding guests even your grandma and grandpa can have those super-cute and entertaining pictures of them.
Give your wedding event a fabulous end. See off the guests with a spectacular show of fireworks in the outdoor. The fireworks would surely refresh the tired attendants. There is no better way to bid adieu.
At my wedding, fun was at its peak when groomsmen got me kidnapped and what they demanded in return, were some really funny demands from the groom. My husband had to undergo all those silly demands to get me back. What he did made us all laugh our head off. Firstly, he was asked to kiss as many as five grannies sitting in the attendants. Hubby did that happily. The funniest of all was the garter belt challenge where my husband had to put on a garter on a groomsman’s leg. The next was to put his boss in handcuffs. Which he did quite nervously. There were many other similar demands. Over all it was great fun and kept guests involved and laughing. You can also try many such unique wedding entertainment ideas to prevent it to be a snooze fest wedding.
