Fun activities for your guests to do on your wedding day

by Liz Gatherer

Providing activities for your guests to take part in before and after your ceremony is a great way to ensure everyone has a good time and to keep guests wowed and entertained whilst you sneak off with your photographer for any group or formal shots you would like.

Here are a few ideas:

Professional wedding artists and performers will be a big hit with your guests

  • hire a caricaturist to create a keepsake for your friends and family 
  • magician is a big hit during the reception or the wedding breakfast 
  • giant colouring in - have a custom canvas set up and let your guest paint away with special paint pens to their heart's content (we like Fancy Features)

These ideas for wedding activities will make memories

  • go retro with arcade games
  • 360 degree photo booths are all the rage at the moment!
  • wedding bouncy castle (yes, these adult proof white bouncy castles are available for you to hire!)

Hire in some giant games for your wedding

  • giant scalextric will be an enormous amount of fun for sure
  • casinos can be hired in and you can even have custom 'money' printed for you to use
  • provide games such as corn hole, giant Jenga / Connect 4 / chess

    Let wedding guests find fun things on the tables

    • leaving bubbles for guests on the tables makes a fun photo op! 
    • leave disposable cameras on the table 
    • have an audio guest book - these are telephones where guests can leave you an audio message! Wedition couples have used Calleo in the past for their audioi guestbook.
