Keeping your guests entertained should be in a top priority when planning your wedding. There’s nothing worse than having guests standing around with nothing to do or looking bored in photographs. Leave a lasting impression with your wedding guests with an interactive element or activity. For budgets big or small, interactive wedding touches make you big day standout. Here are five ways to inject a bit of action into your guests’ experience.
Add A Guest Book
Having a guest book is an immediate way for guests to interact with your wedding experience. Guest have the opportunity to share a special message with the bride and groom and gives the newlyweds a beautiful souvenir from their big day. We suggest placing the guest book at the entrance of your reception venue to make sure no one misses it. By doing this it also gives guests something to do while waiting for the bride and groom to arrive. From the classic guest book to more creative options like a Heart Holder for Guest Book, today guest books come in various shapes and sizes. Add a modern twist to your guest book by including a Polaroid camera for guests to snap a selfie and add it to their page of the book.
Use A Hashtag
Unless you choose to have an unplugged wedding, a great way to share your special day with the world is through social media. The easiest way to do this is through a hashtag. Allow your guests to get interactive and share their special moments from your wedding on social media using a specific hashtag. To create the perfect hashtag you can use a hashtag generator or come up with your own, but remember to keep it appropriate and simple.
Give Guests Disposable Cameras
Even though this idea may seem outdated, it is not only really fun for guests but is also affordable. Encourage guests to snap away on disposable cameras you’ve provided. Both the bridal party and guests will have an awesome time getting creative with how they shoot your wedding. You could even incorporate a game of ‘I Spy’ that will help guests to take photos of special moments.
Set Up Lawn Games
Take advantage of big open spaces at your wedding venue and set up some lawn games. For those waiting for the reception to start or who don’t enjoy dancing, lawn games are a way to keep everyone entertained. Games that work well are giant Jenga, croquet, and corn hole. You can also add games from your childhood to add a flare of nostalgia to your wedding.
Get Creative With A Photo Booth
Over the past few years, photo booths have become increasingly popular at weddings. And we understand why – they are so fun, interactive and give guests something to take home. Add an awesome backdrop and some props to encourage guests to let their hair down and be silly – it is a celebration after all. Don’t forget to include yourself and your new husband or wife in a few of the photo booth activities.
