Are you looking for some fun things to do at your wedding?
We’ve got some ideas that are sure to please you and your crowd!
I personally love it when a bride wants to do an anniversary dance at her wedding! To me, it’s so romantic to see a couple that has been married for decades happily dancing together. Here’s how you do it: the DJ will invite all of the married couples on the dance floor and play a song. Throughout the song, the DJ will call out the amount of years married, and dismiss them off the dance floor. So at the end of the song, the couple that has been married the longest will be the only ones out swaying on the dance floor. Then the DJ asks them what their secret is to a long, happy marriage—which is always a good little nugget to know! You could even give them a special bouquet!
Believe it or not, the Shoe Game is always a hit when we play it for a wedding; and it always gets really funny! Never heard of the Shoe Game? During the reception, the bride and groom will sit back-to-back and trade a shoe. The DJ (or someone from your bridal party) will ask a series of questions; and the couple will hold up the shoe of the person they think best answers the question. The couple can’t see what the other person is answering, and it really lets the guests get to know you a little better. When we have a bride that does the Shoe Game, she always reports back to us that it was her favorite part of the wedding! The best thing is that we make the questions for you! One less thing for you to do; and you can be sure that there will be laughter.
It’s no secret that guests love a good Photo Booth! Fun props and a memento from the wedding make a Photo Booth a no-brainer at your wedding! Our brides love that we make a custom design for your Photo Booth pictures, and that they get a copy of all the pictures after the wedding to keep! These days, brides are getting creative with their Photo Booths, and are using guest books with pictures from the Photo Booth. Click here to read a previous blog post about our Oh Snap! Photo Booth.
Do you remember when you would go to a wedding and there would be the old-school disposable cameras on the tables? Evenstagram is the modern alternative to the disposable cameras. We create a custom hashtag that hasn’t been used by anyone but you. All the pictures that your guests take and put on social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) with your custom hashtag streams throughout the night as a custom slideshow. It’s really interactive, and every guest gets excited when their tweet or Instagram post shows up!
Oh, a dance-off is sure to be a surprise that your guests never saw coming! You can do a dance-off so many ways: bride versus groom OR bridesmaids versus groomsmen OR an epic father/ daughter OR mother son dance. No matter what, it’s going to wow your guests and give them something to talk about. We’ve had a couple of super fun mother & son dances—the dance starts off slow—and then boom, a fast choreographed dance follows that nobody saw coming.
Food or Dessert Truck
When a food truck or a dessert truck rolls up to your wedding, well, then that’s sure to be talked about for months to come!
So, how are you going to make your wedding stand out from the rest? Will you use any of these ideas at your wedding?
