With so many choices on how to entertain your guests, how do you decide for your day? First you need to establish what it is that will show your desired theme... Are you going for a romantic whimsical feel? Or do you want your guest to feel like they are at the “Fun Carefree” couples reception?

Here are a few entertainment ideas:
DJ: Who doesn’t like a DJ that moves the party along? Leave it to your DJ to create the perfect vibe during your reception and take pressure off of you.
Photo Booth: Imagine how much fun it will be looking back at your wedding and seeing all of the silly photos of your friends and family at your Photo Booth
Fire Works: How great would it be to leave your reception with a display of fireworks sending you off to your honeymoon? Tip: Make sure you have the proper permission first.
Advice cards: Leave some cards on the reception tables that you can get advice from others on how to have a happy marriage. Read the cards on a date night when you get home from your honeymoon.
Now that you have some ideas, how do you choose what to do at your reception? Here are a few tips to help you decide:
Pick a theme: A theme is important so you don’t get sidetracked.
Logistics: Will your guest enjoy a cocktail hour prior to your reception? If so, be sure to discuss the location, as well as music options with your DJ.
Budget: You are not cheap. Your wedding is not cheap. Therefore, stay away from cheap entertainment.
Keep it simple: Don’t overstimulate your guests. Provide just enough entertainment so they can enjoy everything.
Decide as a couple: Choose entertainment that you both will enjoy.
Whatever it is that you decide to do or not do at your reception is up to you. It’s your day so have fun with it and pick things that will make you look back with fondness and make you feel that you would want to live that day over and over again.
