Ever more often nowadays couples are bypassing traditional elements and opting for more personalized fun for themselves and their guests. A larger emphasis is increasingly given to the reception and after party. Even though this special day is about the bride and groom, it is important to make sure guests are enjoying themselves. Let’s be honest if your guests are happy and having fun, so are you! In the coming weeks, we will be highlighting emerging trends such as these. This week we explore the trends in guest entertainment.
Take advantage of good weather and a beautiful outdoor venue with some lawn games to entertain your guests. Lawn games like cornhole, badminton, ring toss, and giant versions of your favorite nostalgic games are a great and simple way to entertain your guests; kids and kids-at-heart. Games are really the perfect ice-breaker for friends and family to get to know each other over a game of cornhole all while enjoying a beer or cocktail.
Wedding guests love to leave their mark! A great way to do that is to have a photobooth for them to leave their snaps in a book or take with them. Just as you do, guests want to remember this special day and these wonderful and personal memories. Photobooths are a consistent crowd-pleaser and usually have props or frames that make them super fun for your guests. You can find more information about a photobooth rental from Wonderland here.
Nothing energizes a crowd more than a live band. Live music has an energy that takes things to the next level which is why so many couples are going with this option nowadays. I still remember vividly a wedding from 2014 we photographed where I was first introduced to Uptown Live/Young Guns. The couple boasted a very grand sit down meal but before the salads even came out every seat cleared and guests flooded the dance floor. That didn’t stop until the party ended!!! My love for this band’s energy led my wife and I to fly them all the way from LA to New Orleans for our own wedding. They did not disappoint!!
