Daytime wedding ideas to keep you, and your guests entertained
What about that lull once your wedding breakfast has finished and you are waiting for the party to get started? Well here are some tips to make sure that your guests are entertained from ceremony to last dance.
We fully get it’s your day, you are the main priority, but how do we keep your guests loving your day just as much as you? If you’re happy, they’re happy and visa versa, right?
Here are a few ideas to keep your guests entertained throughout your wedding day. Nobody wants that ‘dreaded’ wedding lull now do they.
Between your ceremony and the meal, why not start a game of beer pong, or ‘go posh’ and try champagne pong. Here are Michelle and Chris doing just that at Bashall Barn, captured by Shane Webber Photography.
N.B. Please make sure you ask venue permission. No really, please ask! We would hate for you to set your heart on it and then the venue not be able to allow it. Licensing is very strict.
If you don’t fancy beer pong, why not try a selfie mirror / musicians / DJ on the terrace / acoustic sax. The list is endless. Think outside the box!
Advice cards are a perfect keepsake from your special day. Cards are usually handed out during starters for your guests to write ‘words of wisdom’ or ‘nice memories on’. The cards could then be read out before your speeches if you’ve chosen to end your meal with them, or take them away on honeymoon to reminisce/have a giggle.
Have you thought about mixing things up a little? The cake cut doesn’t have to be done before your first dance. You could end your meal on your cake cut or you could cut the cake when you enter into your meal and have it as part of your desert. It’s your day, do what’s best for you and the flow of your day.
And what about entertainment whilst you have your wedding pictures? You will most likely be having pictures after your ceremony and after your meal. Keep your guests entertained by adding music to keep the atmosphere going. 2 ideas:
Summer wedding > Acoustic artist on the lawn
Winter wedding > Piano by the fire
First dance outside? Go all acoustic, choose your favourite song and take it onto the lawn , just imagine how good that would look as a picture on your wall.
