How To Make Your Wedding Fun For Your Guests
Have you ever been to a wedding that was unadulterated fun and excitement from start to finish? If you have, you know it’s such a joy! If you haven’t then you might be wondering how to achieve such a feat! With your wedding around the corner you might be wondering how to make your wedding fun for your guests. It all starts with interactive ideas that get your guests involved. While that can include an endless list of ideas, here’s some great building blocks to get you started! Remember, think of how you can connect with your guests on your wedding day. Not only will your guests have fun, but you and your guests will enjoy the chance to interact during this special day!
Start With A BANG!
I recently had the privilege of capturing Ron and Phil’s wedding at Hilton Fallsview Hotel & Resort, in Niagara Falls, ON. They really knew how to answer the question of how to make your wedding fun for your guests! They kicked off the night with a confetti cannon. A CONFETTI CANNON! I cannot think of a more appropriate way to signify that your guests are in for a fun night! Think of something you can bring to your wedding day that can set the tone for the evening. Something that tells your guests there in for a fun night!
People Come For The Wedding, But Stay For The Dancing!
Let’s get real for a second. Your two won’t be the only ones looking forward to strutting your moves on the dance floor the night of your wedding. So open things up for some fun! Maybe have your MC throw down a dance off challenge to eager guests. You could also try to organize your wedding guests into age groupings, and play a hit from their day that they get to own the dance floor to. Anything that gets those feet moving, and those grins stretching. Talk to your band or DJ as well, see if they have any creative ideas to liven up the dance floor. Maybe throw a freeze dance game into the mix, and see who’s left standing by the end of the song.The dance floor always seems to be the time and place for guests to have fun and connect at any wedding.
Game of Alters
Why was Game of Thrones such a smashing success? The battles? The character development? The sex scenes? NO. The games of course! Ok, maybe that’s a stretch. There is nothing better at a wedding than ice breaking games that get the guests interacting. This can be as casual as a couples trivia game. You can even go as bold as to throw a Twister matt down and let the hilarity ensue. Maybe during cocktail hour you could have your wedding planner organize a mad lib about you two as a couple that your guests could all respond to. While you two are busy having photos done, the planner could put the mad lib together for you two to read during speeches.
If you really want to know how to make your wedding fun for your guests, just remember these two things:
- The more fun you two are having, the more fun the guests will have since laughing and smiling is contagious!
- The more you find ways to incorporate your guests into the evenings activities the more fun they’re going to have!
It’s as simple as that! If you want to pick my brain and find out some of my all time favourite fun ideas for wedding I’ve shot in the past contact me below.
