You’ve finally said your vows you’ve been working on for months, and kissed to seal the deal – now it’s time to party! But what should you have to entertain your guests? These activities are sure to be crowd-pleasers.

1. Music

A DJ, live band, or both! The music will set the scene for your wedding reception. A DJ can play a variety of songs but a live band may bring more of an intimate feel.


Of course, you need some way to remember your wedding day! There are plenty of fun options. For starters: hire a photographer that you feel fits your style and vibe – traditional photos or aesthetically pleasing? Maybe create a themed photo booth that matches your wedding theme, create a geotag on Snapchat, and make your own hashtag for Instagram!

3. Backyard Games

Giant Jenga, Cornhole, Connect Four, or a Wheel of Fun are all fun games to have out in the open.

4. Kids Table

Adults always need a break, so have an area for the kids to hang out! Put out some board games, coloring books, and paint supplies.

5. The Bar

Aside from a normal bar featuring DIY Cocktails, a whiskey bar, wine bar, prosecco bar,  or cigar bar are some clever additions.

6. Guest Book

Having a guest book will hold sentimental memories written or said by your friends and family. Keep it plain and simple by having a book to write memories or wishes, or hire a videographer to film a video documentary.
