does anyone else worry how to keep your guests amused? nothing worse then bored guests! :|
Hi I do not see the point of worrying about something you can't control :)
I selfie mirror is always great fun for the guests 😁
I was thinking about the younger guests last night. (Instead of going sleep as i was meant to be doing.. ) we are getting married at 4pm, then photos & disco starts at 6pm. Food at 7. Cake cutting & Thank yous at 8.30ish.. So i am guessing there wont be much time for much else.. Theres a garden that they can chase each other around... Had thought of getting bouncy castle but then you need some1 to keep an eye on little 1s.
Quizes. My son had pub quiz at his reception. With a small.prize . Everyone had a great time.. and s laugh
We had garden games to keep our guests happy and entertained. Had mini crazy golf, hook a duck, high striker, giant buzzwire, photo peep board, stand the bottle, and few more. Everyone seemed to love them x
our venue does garden cames you can hire might see what they've got if the weathers ok I'm getting a photobooth and candy cart for the evening its the day time I'm most worry about when were getting pictures took and when its the meal time me and my partner aren't much of speech people so trying to think of stuff!
I did, and contemplated several ideas, which all increased cost. Honestly, the day goes so fast and most people are happy to have a drink and catch up. I guess it depends how early your ceremony is. I've been to a few weddings this year, and had my own, and people are generally happy to amuse themselves!
We had singing waiters during dinner and then had a marryoke which was filmed with our guests all day and kept them busy! Was amazing when I got it back and saw everyone singing in a music video
We had loads of stuff for garden but on the day it poured with rain so guests had to be adults n amuse themselves by old fashioned chatting
We have got some garden games (giant jenga/giant snakes and ladders/twister/giant noughts and crosses) for the kids and we have got prosecco pong for the adults xx
We put out some games. Connect 4 for very competitive! Lol
We have a magic show. Photo booth so all should be entertained
Dont think ive ever been bored at a wedding. C
We've had all sorts of wonderful ideas to keep guests entertained at weddings with us. Garden games are a lovely idea in the summer time, but equally games that can be done indoors are a great idea, perhaps a personalised Guess Who of the bridal party!? Photo booths and selfie mirrors are a great way to get your guests interacting too. Our Red Room here at the hotel is a classic casino red, so couples often hire in Casino Tables to play with too. - Kirsty, Wedding & Events Coordinator
If your guest are bored or even look bored the best thing you can offer them is a taxi!
I have a couple of things lined up to aid the gaps but mostly am relying on my (luckily, very entertaining) friends to keep the flow going. Best of luck with your special day x
We had an open mic and a rodeo bull which kept everyone entertained :)
I think it's sad if people can't chat for a short while when they arrive at the reception ... particularly if there are drinks and a few snacks. The guests are there to help you celebrate your wedding and should be able to mingle for a little while. Why does everyone have to be 'entertained' nowadays?
We had garden games, a steel band playing while we had photos taken we then had casino tables after dinner and before evening guests arrived. Everyone we have spoken to had said that they loved that they had a choice rather than just sitting there doing nothing. They had been sitting and chatting for 2 hours while eating they didn't want another 2 hours of the same x
We are having a selfie mirror and all the children have activity books x
Yep! I think it's only natural to want everyone to be enjoying themselves, I've got an early ceremony due to registrar availability so I'm currently looking at ways to entertain guests before and after the meal and speeches. I agree that people do generally entertain themselves, chatting and catching up. I'm looking at hopefully having some live music and a magician. I've got outdoor games too but you never know what the weather is going to do. I'm sure on the day it won't be a problem so try not to worry too much.
We had favour games, conversation starter cards and small sets of Lego, everyone loved putting them together and thought they were a brilliant idea. For the children, we supplied activity books and packs of colouring pencils. Everyone had a lovely time and we didn't have any disinterested kiss running round firing speeches etc. X
