Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days of your life, punctuated by the life partner you are tied to at the end of an incredible ceremony and reception. A celebration of this magnitude should be as fun as it is special, and if your wedding plans are in need of a dash of fun, here are 6 ways you can do just that. Let’s get into it.
Hire a wedding photobooth
Nothing gets people laughing and feeling playful quite like a wedding photobooth. The props can create such a buzz for your guests, and there are so many group photo variations you can get through on the night. The best part is that you and your guests get to take a piece of the party home with them and cherish that fun for many years to come. It also means that your photographer doesn’t need to stay long beyond the ceremony, as you can have your own fun with the photobooth.
Book a DJ
A playlist will suffice at a house party, but it won’t cut the mustard on your wedding day. Finding the right DJ can liven any wedding, and it allows you to incorporate a wide selection of music that will get all generations on their feet and grooving to the music. Before you choose a DJ to book, make sure you are both on the same page with wedding music taste to avoid any unwanted tracks on the night.
Choose an entertaining MC
Do you have someone in mind to be the MC on the night of your wedding? If you’re not sure who this person should be, simply consider whether they can keep a crowd giggling and engaging, and likely to tell a few questionable anecdotes. An entertaining MC can set your wedding off to a fun start, so start shortlisting you’re candidates.
Design a wedding guestbook
You might think that this is a given, and you might also think that it’s not what you would exactly call fun. However, it can be! By designing your own guest book, you can ask some rather pointed questions of your guests like ‘who do you think wears the pants in the relationship?’, and other questions that are sure to get hilarious responses. Task a friend with reminding guests to fill out the guestbook before they leave, as it can often be forgotten and you and your partner will have enough to do on the night.
Consider a ‘recovery’
Ok, this isn’t technically something you do on the wedding day, but it’s a great follow up activity! Hosting a recovery party is a great way to connect with your guests that you didn’t spend enough time with on the day, but it also gives your guests a chance to mingle with one another and recap on the night before. It’s quite popular to pair a recovery with an activity, like lawn bowls or a BBQ.
Surprise your guests with a choreographed dance
You would have seen those hilarious YouTube videos that show a bride and groom or bride and father absolutely tearing up the dance floor with an unexpected choreographed dance. This is such a fun start to an evening on the dance floor, and it’s a nice little surprise to have up your sleeve when your guests believe they have seen it all! Extra points for choosing an iconic song that will have the room singing and clapping along.
Hopefully, this wedding guide has you excited for the big day, with ideas bubbling away for an incredibly fun day of celebrating. Remember to loop your bridal party in on the plan so that they can support and encourage these activities.
