A wedding is also a party, and you should put in some thought and effort to make sure everybody is having a good time, and that you can look back on this day and wonder and laugh at all the fun things that happened. So here are 6 recommendations to make your wedding more fun.
Hand out quirky party favors. It's traditional to offer little presents or treats to guests at a wedding. Often, these are cute and custom things, such as a mason jar filled with homemade jam or retro gumballs. But to really get the party moving, give away something that will get people talking to each other and having fun. For example, colorful sunglasses or funky masks will allow people to get into character and the night will soon take off.
Set the scene with the first dance. The couple does the first dance, and if they make a slow and stately performance, chances are that the guests will subconsciously follow and it might take a while for the party to really get going. However, if you set the scene with a fun, wild dance that gets people laughing, very soon, others will be laughing and joining you in the craziness.
Have a kids' corner. If your wedding will have lots of kids, keep them well-entertained to make sure both they and their parents can enjoy themselves. Few things will dampen a party better than a large number of kids who have gotten bored, rowdy, or cranky. Hire a babysitter, set aside an area where the kids can watch movies, or even consider bringing on some custom entertainment for them like a magician.
Choose a few games. There are a number of party games that can get your guests laughing and interacting with each other. These aren't just drinking games—they can be tasteful and fun, and they can allow everyone to know the couple and the other guests better. For starters, check out "the shoe game" or "he said, she said".
Add a twist to the photobooth. Photobooths are a great way for you and your guests to have fun and to share memories after the wedding. To really make it a great wedding, provide a photobooth, but add a twist. Give people props or costumes that they can wear inside the photobooth, and watch them start playing and giggling.
End the night in a spectacular way. Make sure that your guests will stick around to the end by letting them know of a special treat that will happen at the end of the party. Some ideas are sparklers and confetti, fireworks, or paper lanterns that you will light and release.
