Looking for some ideas to turn your wedding reception into a really exciting evening, then look no further at these ideas to keep your guests entertained!
Starting with the younger guests, why not bring in a face painter who can transform the little faces into wonderful animals and patterns.
Have you thought about amusing the children at your reception with a Piñata – a container often made of papier-mâché, pottery, or cloth; it is decorated, and filled with small toys or candy, or both, and then broken as part of a ceremony or celebration. A great way to keep children amused.
Did you know that the word Caricature means “loaded portrait”? Having a caricaturist attend a wedding is always a hit. They can give your guests something to take home and hang on the wall at the end of their day. Drawing caricatures is great fun with a technique which exaggerates or pulls the key features of the human face to distort but still being able to retain a likeness.
Look-a-likes – people who can mingle amongst your guests. A great way to get all your guests talking and adds an element of surprise to any occasion.
Always a hit with guests is a Magician – get them to circulate around tables between your wedding breakfast, showing off their amazing skills. Most magicians will also get your guests to participate.
Looking to wow your guests a little more? Why not consider hiring an entire circus and turn your reception into a wedding big top – amazing fun for all ages of guests. Think along the lines of stilt walking, jugglers, fire eaters, acrobats and tightrope walkers!
If you have some outdoor space to fill, then why not create a cosy area for your guests to sit later in the evening. Provide seating made from hay bales and some fire pits to take the chill off.
If you have an open space to fill, why not consider hiring a bouncy castle – a sure why to get both adults and children alike to show off their tumbling skills!
Photo booths are all the rage, but if you are not able to hire one, why not create your own in a corner of a room – have a big box of glasses, hats, wigs and other props and then have a Polaroid camera available for guests to capture all the fun!
Always a must at a good wedding is music – the choices are virtually endless from discos through to karaoke
A live band – great fun for all ages to get rocking on the dance floor.
Jukebox – hire a retro jukebox with a great selection of tunes, and get your guests to choose the tunes for the evening.
DJ – you can provide a selection of songs to suit all guests and also get your guests to request songs.
