When you’re planning your wedding, the ceremony is all about you and your partner. It’s your time to declare your love for one another and make the promises of marriage. But the reception is the time to celebrate with all of your family and friends and so you want to make it special for them. The reception is the time when you can have a bit of fun with your wedding and do something interesting for your guests so your wedding is one to remember. These are some great fun ideas for a memorable wedding reception.
Think About Your Seating Arrangement
When you’re planning a wedding, the seating arrangement is one of the most important things you have to do, but a lot of people don’t think about it as much as they should. The seating arrangement can actually have a big effect on how much fun people have so make sure that you spend some time with it. Seat people with people that they get on with and maybe take the opportunity to seat old friends that don’t see each other often together. It’ll be a lovely surprise for them when they get to their seat and get the chance to catch up with an old friend. You’ve also got to be careful about any guests that don’t get on particularly well because nobody is going to have a good time if they’re sat next to somebody they hate all night. Keep people far away from one another if they don’t get along so there aren’t any issues.
A Photo Booth
Chances are you'll have a professional photographer there to take all of the professional pictures of the big day, but why not have a little fun with it as well? You can hire a photo booth for your wedding with all sorts of fun costumes and filters so your guests can get in there and take lots of their own fun pictures. Imagine how fun it will be looking through them all after the big day and they’re be something different than the typical pictures that you get done by a photographer.
Plan Something For Kids
Many people decide not to invite kids to their wedding which is fine, but if you are going to let people bring their children, its a great idea to plan something for them. Your guests aren’t going to have a great time if they can’t let loose so why not have a kids area and hire a babysitter. They can keep the kids entertained and play games with them so they’re not getting bored and the parents have a chance to have a bit of fun of their own.
Interactive Food Bar
People are more than likely going to get hungry later on in the evening so it’s always good to put some food options for later in the evening . You can make things a bit more fun with interactive food stations where people can make their own meals. You could put all of the ingredients out for people to make tacos or even have a sushi rolling station. It’s a great way to make sure everybody gets fed and has fun while they’re doing it.
These are all great ways to make your wedding reception more fun so that your guests remember it for years to come.
