Fun Ideas for Your Wedding Reception
When you’re hosting a wedding reception, you want to keep your guests entertained. Of course, there are some great ways to really make for a fun unique event. Here are some ideas.
1) Craft Beer You can have your own brew station or brew your own beer. We had a couple once make their own craft beer. They bottled it and made their own labels with funky and funny names. It was really unique and brought their love of beer to life. Check out their Feature in Modern Luxury Here! 2) Add Song Requests to RSVPs You can do it on paper but also, a lot of DJs offer this as part of their service online. Check out our Guest Requests Link Here! 3) Colored Candy You can always tie in your wedding colors with a little candy. If amber is your color of choice, you may be able to find a lot of yellow colored candy. Try the popcorn flavored jelly beans.
4) Custom Cornhole
Also known as “bag”, this can be a great option for your reception, especially for the cocktail hour. By customizing the board and colors of the bags to fit your wedding theme, you tie it all back to your vision. It’s a great way for everyone to celebrate in your honor, while having some fun! Goes great with craft beer! See Idea #1.
5) a Photo Booth
A Photo Booth is a great way to keep your guests entertained. Most company’s can customize the photo strips. Our Starlite photo booth offers a chalkboard that we can customize with your names, date, etc. A great photo booth should have a ton of props for guests to get silly. You want to create an atmosphere that is light hearted and fun, and yes, maybe a little goofy.
In summary, you want to create fun ideas that create an environment that is not stuffy. Weddings can be very stressful for some but giving your guests unique entertainment options, can help create conversation, and a joyful environment. Don’t worry about all of these items being about you too much. This is the one day that it’s okay for everything to be all about you. The more “you” you create with these options, the more fun it can be. People are there to celebrate you so bring it out even more! As DJs, we notice that the more unique and customized options, the easier it is to get guests to dance. Everyone has really seen your vision and celebrates with you. And when you celebrate, you dance!
