All About Entertainment


Your wedding should not be just a day for you to remember. Traditionally, a wedding reception is a party thrown in honor of the bridal couple, but is hosted for the wedding guests as a
thank you for their presence at the nuptials and for their gifts.

With the right planning, your reception can be just as memorable for your guests as it is for you and your family. Do research and think about what you’ve enjoyed (and haven’t enjoyed) as a guest at weddings.

Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

HIRE A CARICATURIST
Caricaturists always add a playful dose of entertainment, and their  popularity at weddings in recent years has grown significantly.

Not only are they entertaining to watch during your reception, but they can offer your guests a unique, person- alized item — which you can use as a wedding favor — to take home with them at the end of the evening.
 
HIRE DANCE INSTRUCTORS
Sometimes enticing guests out on the dance floor can be a struggle. Offering up some entertainment on the dance floor could be just the ticket to get guests into the groove of things.

Instructors can frequently be hired by the hour, so you can easily limit your costs. Your guests will never forget that your wedding is where they learned (or relearned) how to swing, waltz or salsa.

OFFER A PHOTO BOOTH
A photo booth is quickly becoming an icon at contemporary weddings. Remember, while many professional photographers offer a photo booth as an add-on option to most packages,
a photo booth does not need to be professionally installed or wreck your budget.

Consider crafting your own backdrop. Pick up fun props at a party store or thrift store, and use an iPad on a tripod to capture the mischief. If you’ve got young cousins itching to be involved, have one of them man the camera.

You don’t need to spend a fortune. But whatever you choose, you need to enjoy it. If you are happy and having fun, your guests will, too.
