30 Amazing Ideas For Your Wedding

 

Weddings are the time to rejoice as two families come together as one. The only feelings in the air are happiness, excitement and most importantly, love. It’s the day the bride has been looking forward to all her life and the day the groom becomes a real man. Everything needs to be perfect. 

But just because things have to be perfect doesn’t mean it has to be normal or boring. It’s a good time to bust out your creativity to help make your day a memorable one.

And that is why we’ve compiled 30 unique and cool ideas that you can use when you’re planning your wedding. If you’re going to be spending a fortune on your wedding, you might as well make the best of it and have it stand out. If done well, people will be talking for years about how awesome your special day was.

Whether you’re getting married tomorrow or in 10 years, this list will be a lifesaver.

 

 

Wedding Guest Book Alternatives

 

1. Guest Box Instead of Guest Book

Source

My friends have told me that I can get quite demanding but seriously, if I don’t have this at my wedding, I might bawl. This is such a cool thing to have! Instead of having your guests write their well-wishes, you can ask them to record a video of them saying it instead. I think it’s much more sincere and especially fun for both the guests and the couple. 

2. Guest Book Tree

Ask your guests to write their well-wishes on a piece of paper and tie them to the branches of a potted plant using a ribbon. Not only is it cute, you now have your first piece of furniture for your future house!

3. Polaroid Guest Book

Source

I am a big fan of Polaroid or instant pictures and I thought this was really adorable! Technically, it is still a guest book but you can add a personal touch by asking your guests to take a picture of themselves and pasting it next to their message!

10 years down the road, you can look back and laugh at all the awkward pictures of your loved ones.  

4. Advice Coasters

Source

If you’re not into guest books and want something even more unique, you can hand out these advice coasters for your guests! You and your spouse can go through all the advice at the end of your wedding day and muse over the things that your guests have written.

I think this is a lovely idea and it’s definitely something I would keep in mind for the future. 

5. Wedding Wishes Box

Source

This has the same concept as the guest book tree but instead of using a potted plant, you use a box with honeycomb-shape rings in it to store all the well-wishes. It’s compact and creative, perfect if you want to keep them from getting dusty before your 20th anniversary!

6. Guest Keys

Source

This is also another great alternative to the usual guest book. It makes for a pretty house decoration too! Guests would write their well wishes on a tag that’s attached to a key and hang it on a faux tree trunk. If you can’t find a faux tree trunk, a cork board or any other nice surfaces would do. This would definitely make your reception an outstanding one.

7. Chalkboard

Source

You can hardly find chalkboards in local schools these days but I honestly think they’re one of the greatest toys yet. Yes, I said toy because you can actually have so much fun writing on them.

They have such an old-school feel to them, whenever I see one, I can never resist picking up a chalk and just doodling all over it. So can you imagine a wedding with a chalkboard as a guest book? Everyone’s going to have so much fun! 

8. Chalkboard + Photobooth

Source

If you’re not into a large scale chalkboard then, why not combine it with photobooth! Many weddings these days have a photobooth corner where guests can take pictures with props and come up with kickass pictures.

Guests can take pictures with their message written on mini chalkboards for you and your spouse to have a good laugh over at the end of the day!

Taking this one step further, why just have a static photobooth? A good photographer can project your photos immediately up to the screen and entertain your guests. They can also have it printed out as photocards for them to keep as wedding mementos.

If you’re in Singapore, livestudios.com is one of those companies that specialises in wireless photography, giving you live projection and instant photocards.

9. Jenga

Source

If you can’t think of any post-wedding dinner games to play, then ask your guests to write your wishes on jenga blocks. That way you can read all the messages and have loads of fun. It’s a pretty unconventional thing to have but it’s still cool. 

10. Mad Lib Guest Book

Source

I love these mad lib guest responses! They’re super fun to complete and you would have a great time reading all the responses! Display all of them at your wedding so other people can have a laugh too!

 

Cool Wedding Decorations

 

11. Fun Facts for Tables

Source

Leave some fun facts about the bride and groom on each table so guests can get to know you better.

There’s probably some quirky little secrets that no one knows about! It’s personal and creative, a perfect addition to your centrepiece. 

12. Frames for Photo-taking

Source

Your guests need an insta-worthy picture to post so what better way to help them than to hang up frames that they can use as props! Everyone’s going to rush for them straight away. I mean, I would so run to them even if I’m wearing heels. I’m sure I’m not the only one. 

13. DIY Paper Lanterns


Source

If you’re into Do-It-Yourself stuff, then why not make lots of DIY lanterns for your wedding! They look so gorgeous, they’re definitely going to stand out at your wedding. It also helps you save on all those expensive decorations. But, you’ll need lots of time and patience to come up with them though it’ll all be worth it in the end.  

14. Signboard

Source

C’mon, admit it. You refresh your Instagram feed every 10 minutes even if there’s no new picture. Instagram is slowly taking over Facebook and I assure you, this would be a great addition to your wedding. By asking your guests to use a specific hashtag, you can track all pictures taken at your wedding and have a blast going through it in future. 

15. Big Balloons

Source

The only thing that’s better than helium balloons is BIG helium balloons! Decorate your wedding venue with huge balloons in different pastel colours. At the end of the day, release all of them into the sky. But not before you write all your wishes down on the balloons! It’s definitely a must-have at every wedding.

16. Ribbons and Fairy Lights

Source

Add a whimsical touch to your wedding by decorating your venue with ribbons and fairy lights! This would look so pretty especially if your wedding is indoors. I personally love the idea of having fairy lights, they make everything seem so much more magical.

 

17. Hanging Lanterns

Source

For your wedding dinner, why not add a romantic touch to it by hanging lanterns everywhere. This would be a beautiful addition to your wedding dinner especially if it’s outdoors. I am absolutely loving this idea and I can’t wait to add it to my future wedding planner. 

18. Ribbon Chair

Source

Liven up the mood at your wedding by adding rainbow streamers to the chairs! When the wind blows, the scene would be spectacular. Of course you could have any other coloured streamers according to your wedding theme but a rainbow theme certainly exudes a sense of joy in everyone. 

19. Creative Centrepiece

Source

If you’re not into the typical centrepieces that most weddings have, then why not opt for this beautiful arrangement instead! This ethereal floral runner dotted with moss and mushroom is super gorgeous and is certainly unique for your wedding.  

20. Upside Down Umbrellas

Source

Show off your quirky side by using umbrellas to decorate your venue! Hang different umbrellas with pretty designs upside down and you’ll have a lovely piece of decoration. Now you know umbrellas are not only useful for when it rains, they’re also amazing pieces of decor. 

 

Other Wedding Ideas

 

21. Outdoor Wedding Picnic

Source

When I saw this picture, I couldn’t contain my excitement. I love picnics and I think I would love to have this at my future wedding. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, this would be an awesome alternative to the usual tables. It’s fun and definitely not ordinary, your guests are pretty much going to have the best time of their lives at your wedding picnic. 

22. Bathroom Essentials

Source

If you’ve ever found yourself wishing that a bottle of hairspray would magically appear at a wedding because your hair is so flat or for a packet of mints to appear before you because that cute guy is about to talk to you then you would think this is a genius idea.  

Be a dear and have all these available at your wedding so your guests can keep fresh and pamper themselves for the rest of the day.

23. Polaroid Wall

Source

This is very similar to the Polaroid guest book. The only thing that’s different is that you hang the pictures up instead of sticking them inside a book. The best thing about this is that once the wedding is over, you can just bring the pictures home and use them as a form of decoration. 

24. Kids Table

Source

Hey, don’t forget about the kids! Back when I was still young and innocent, I didn’t enjoy weddings because it’s all grown up talks and stuff I didn’t understand. If every wedding had a Kids Table full of arts and craft to do, I would have enjoyed weddings even more.

Plus, parents don’t have to keep chasing after their kids if they know that their children are safe at the Kids Table. 

25. Personalized Cups

Source

What better way to let your guests know that you love and appreciate every single one of them by giving them their own personalized cups which they can keep! Their seat number comes with the cup so at least they know that even if there are 1000 other guests, you still appreciate their presence. 

26. Pie Station

Source

The glutton in me is screaming, “Let me out! Let me out!” A pie station at a wedding is such an amazing alternative to the typical dessert bar. You can have a variety of cakes or pies for guests to choose from, displayed in a very cute manner. 

Beware of people like me who might hog the whole station and eat all the pies…nomnomnom!

27. Sealing Love Letters

Source

At your wedding, seal all the love letters that you’ve sent to each other in a time capsule so you can open it on your 30th wedding anniversary. You can also seal other treasured items inside and bury the box in your backyard. If you don’t have a backyard then simply store it safe in your cupboard. 

It’s a very endearing activity and will remind you of your love for one another. 

28. Team Bride or Groom Badges

Source

Wearing these badges isn’t about picking sides. After all, on your wedding day, two families become one, there is no side! However, it would be fun to know why the other person’s there or how they got to know the bride and groom. It’s a great conversation starter and will bond your guests even more. 

29. Wedit

Source

Wedit is an enjoyable and easy way for you to capture, view and share your wedding memories. A few days before your wedding they’ll send you 5 HD cameras for you and your guests to record every single moment. You can then send it back to them so they can edit all the footage and make a mini movie out of it.  

Unfortunately, it’s only available in the U.S but if there’s any local company that does this too, please let me know. I need this. 

30. Bubbles In A Tin

Source

You are never too old for bubbles. Trust me. Set aside for some bubble time and have contests for who can blow the biggest bubble! Your guests are going to have a great time and it makes for a memorable memory.

12 Things Bored Wedding Guests Wish You Would Do at Your Wedding

Singaporebrides | Inspirations

March 2020

By Tansey Tang

Showcase your personalities and give your wedding guests an all-new experience with these fun and unique wedding ideas!

When wedding guests reach that age when everyone seems to be getting married at the same time and attending four weddings a year becomes the norm, they don’t want the same experience over and over again. Your wedding is a celebration of you and your unique personalities and love journey! Take the opportunity to be creative when telling your story at your wedding, and keep your wedding guests entertained as a bonus.

We’ve rounded up some unique wedding ideas that guests would love to see at your big day, such as choosing a venue that is really you, injecting some personality into your wedding theme and décor, and raising the bar at your wedding with interactive stations your guests will love.

1. Choose a Wedding Venue that’s You

Gucci and Jacky’s Fun and Laid-Back Wedding at The Summerhouse by thegaleria Ariel and Johan’s Gorgeous Industrial Wedding at The Ahava by Andri Tei Photography

After attending countless hotel ballroom weddings, your guests would love it if you threw a celebration somewhere they’ve never been. Better yet, make it an intimate reception where they can actually talk to you instead of just admire your sparkly dress from afar. Have fun with a unique wedding like Gucci and Jacky did at The Summerhouse and Ariel and Johan at The Ahava, or check out our list of alternative wedding venues and their rates for inspiration.

2. Tell Your Story

Lyn and Ming Xian’s Exquisite Wedding at The Ritz-Carlton and Capella Singapore by Darren and Jade Photography Tina and Jacen’s Intimate Wedding at Emily Hill by 520 Library

Cookie-cutter weddings begone! These days, there are more and more opportunities for couples to tell their story and add personal touches to their weddings. Guests will be delighted to learn more about you and will enjoy interesting themes. Have fun with themes that reflect your personalities, such as Lyn and Ming Xian’s Old Shanghai and Roaring Twenties wedding, or Tina and Jacen did with their colourful outdoor wedding at Emily Hill.

3. Celebrate culture

Andrea and Samuel’s Mixed Culture Void Deck Wedding in Clementi by Just Like Magic Co. Ying Yi and Sebastian’s Cosy Wedding at The Gallery at Grand Hyatt Singapore by Tinydot Photography

Come from two different cultures? Celebrate your cultures and share them with your families and friends, as Andrea and Samuel did with their void deck wedding, with unique wedding ideas such as a lion dance, an ice cream uncle, and a chuppah to represent both Singaporean and Jewish cultures! You can also put a modern spin on Oriental style by pairing your traditional kun qua with retro round shades, or light up your wedding with a neon double happiness sign like Ying Yi and Sebastian did at their celebration.

4. Inject Some Colour

Forget blush and white weddings; inject some colour into your wedding guests’ experience with a bright and unusual colour palette. Take a leaf from our >oody Tropical Styled Shoot with dark jewelled tones, or go for bright yellow and greens like our Zesty Modern Romance Styled Shoot.

5. Install Edible Decor

Ting Ping and Edward’s Gorgeous Wedding in Capella Singapore by Antelope Studios

If there’s one thing your guests want, it’s for you to feed them! Dessert bars are a great way to inject colour and style to the whole wedding experience too. Set up a beautiful popcorn bar like Ting Ping and Edward did, so guests can snack during cocktail hour. Better yet, add a pretty donut wall with customised donuts in your wedding colours!

6. Get an Ice Cream Cart

Cara and Andy’s Ethereal, Blue-Hued Wedding at The St. Regis Singapore by Antelope Studios

Delight wedding guests young and old with an ice cream cart serving your favourite flavours like Cara and Andy did at their beautiful wedding!

7. Give Wedding Favours Guests Can Actually Use

Jocelyn and Marcus’ Gorgeous Succulent Wedding at The Rabbit Hole by Click! Photography Ting Ping and Edward’s Gorgeous Wedding in Capella Singapore by Antelope Studios

How many times have you gone to a traditional wedding and left the wedding favours behind? Nobody needs three sets of dove-shaped salt and pepper shakers! Do your guests and yourselves a favour by giving them something they’ll actually want, like these cute succulent pots at Jocelyn and Marcus’ wedding. They create a lovely display at your wedding too! Another great hit with guests is a DIY favour bar where they can create their own favours, such as a DIY floral tea bar, as Ting Ping and Edward had at their wedding.

8. Include Your Pets

Ellen and Andre’s Fun, Animal-Themed Wedding at The White Rabbit by Colossal Weddings

Cue the “Awww”s! If you’ve got a furry friend or three, and they’ve been part of your relationship almost as long as you have, it would be special indeed to involve them in your wedding, as Ellen and Andre did at their animal-themed celebration. You can be sure it will put a smile on your guests’ faces too!

9. March In to an Unusual Song

Alison and David’s Magical and Intimate Wedding at Tirtha Uluwatu Bali by Gusmank Photography.

A few years ago, all guests heard at wedding march-ins was “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. Now, if it’s not Ed Sheeren’s “Perfect” or “Thinking Out Loud”, couples are playing “Beautiful in White” by Shane Filan. Get a little more creative and choose a song that represents the both of you! Check out our Spotify playlist for some inspiration.

10. Set Up a DIY Cocktail Bar

Michelle and William’s Beautiful and Intimate Botanico Wedding by The Beautiful Moment Photography

Get the party started with a DIY cocktail bar! Everybody loves alcohol at weddings, and a themed cocktail bar where guests can mix their own drinks adds a fun, interactive element. To share their love for Pimms, Michelle and William set up a Pimp Your Pimms bar so guests could garnish their cocktails with the fruits and herbs of their choice!

11. Host a Flower Bar

Shermaine and Kelvin’s Wild, Botanical Wedding at Chijmes by Nicolethen Studio

Who doesn’t love a good flower bar? It’s great entertainment, and looks so pretty as part of your wedding styling. Let your guests get creative at a floral bar at your wedding, which can double up as wedding favours! For inspiration, here are 13 flower bar providers in Singapore.

12. Be Eco-Conscious

Marina Bay Sands Launches New Harmony Package for the Eco-Conscious Couple

It’s not just your eco-conscious guests who will appreciate your efforts for sustainability, but also the earth! These days, it’s easier to cut down on wastage as more wedding vendors jump on board the green wagon. Start with simple things like cutting shark’s fin from your wedding menu, or repurposing your wedding solemnisation flowers and bridesmaid posies for your reception décor.

10 Fun and Meaningful Activities To Entertain Your Wedding Guests

Singaporebrides | Essentials

October 2016

By Audrie Soh

Looking for ways to keep your guests occupied during your wedding? Take your pick from our list of fun and engaging activities to get your guests excited.

We know it is your wedding day but don’t forget to include your guests, both young and old, in your celebration by planning activities that they can enjoy during and throughout the wedding. Keep them entertained and engaged with these 10 brilliant activities throughout the night, from your reception all the way until the end of the celebration. Psst, some of these even double up as wedding favours or décor!

1. Photobooth

Tansey and Phil’s Elegant-Chic Wedding in Malaysia by Samimage Photography

Ever since its introduction, photobooths have become a staple at weddings islandwide and it’s easy to see why. It’s a great and fun way to keep guests of all ages busy and gift them a lovely momento of the wedding.

2. Motion Photobooth

But you know what’s even better than still images? Moving photos! Ubersnap takes photobooths to a whole new level by introducing the world’s first GIF printing service for some merry motion photobooth action. Not only are these instant Harry-Potter style prints a unique gift for your guests to take home, they can also download the app for a copy of their animated print to share on their social media.

3. DIY Tea Station

Constance and Jason’s Kaleidoscope Flower Field Hall Wedding At Gardens By The Bay by Samuel Goh Photography

A DIY bag-your-own-tea station is a cute way to give your guests something to do and talk about during your reception. Lay out a variety of tea leaves and pretty organza bags for them and leave them to pick their favourite or create their very own unique blend. Your guests can even get acquainted with each other as they pick out their tea. Plus, this doubles up as a wedding favour too. Talk about killing two (or more!) birds with one stone!

4. Food/Drink Truck

Maureen and Chuankai’s Vintage Carnival Wedding at UNA, One Rochester by Multifolds Photography

Keep your guests (and their stomachs) happy with some light refreshments as they mingle around at the reception. Instead of the usual presentation of waiters walking around with canapés in hand, hire a mini food or drink pushcart that your guests can visit for food and drinks.

5. Hire a Live Band/DJ

A Kewei and Alfred Love Duet by Tinydot Photography

Involve your guests by hiring a live band that accepts song requests so they can request for songs that they want to jive or slow dance to to keep things lively during your reception. Have your band belt out a playlist with a good mixture of oldies and trending tracks to keep both the old and young entertained in between song requests as well.

6. A Viewing Gallery

A Merry Love Story Marathon Styled Shoot by 520 Library

Give your guests something to look at with Artisan Prints’ high quality photo products, including premium soft-cover photobooks, art-gallery wall canvases and rustic wooden blocks and keepsake boxes. Create a mini photo gallery at your reception with your favourite moments assembled beautifully in one of their artisan photobooks or string the prints up on fairylights for a dreamy look.

You can even decorate your reception table with their lovely rustic wooden blocks and keepsake boxes by showcasing a handful of your most beloved moments from your pre-wedding photo session. The best part? You can take these home with you after the wedding and spruce up your new home with these lovely keepsakes of your love and wedding.

7. Message-in-a-Mason-Jar Guestbook

Jocelyn and Marcus’ Gorgeous Succulent Wedding at The Rabbit Hole by Click! Photography

Take a piece of your wedding and your guests’ well-wishes home with you after your big day by swopping the traditional guestbook for an adorable mason jar frame filled with small wooden hearts bearing happy words and blessings from your guests.

8. Caricature Drawing

Melissa and Gavin’s Cosy Wedding at Skyve Wine Bistro by Kok, freelance photographer from Seletar Broadway

An alternative way to gift guests with a ‘photo’ of themselves is to hire a caricaturist to draw their portraits while they mingle around during the reception. Go for a professional speed caricaturist who can churn out many drawings for events with a limited time like weddings to ensure that all your guests are able to have a turn at having their portraits drawn.

9. Interactive Cards

Tim and Sabrina – You Found Me by Chris Ling International Photographers

Keep your guests entertained while they’re seated at their tables in between dishes or programmes by providing them with interactive cards that can fill up with with marriage advice, baby name ideas or even romantic date-night suggestions.

10. Sandart Video

A Diving Love Story by Peeping Thom Photography

Opt for a unique sandart video in place of the usual video montage and watch your guests become enthralled as the fine grains of sand come together to tell the tale of how you met your husband and fell in love.

110 Wedding Entertainment Ideas That Will WOW Your Guests

1. Fireworks

Everybody loves a dramatic display of fireworks – here’s how to plan yours.

2. Sparklers

Tone it down a notch and go for sparklers to get your guests involved! Buy your own sparklers here.  

Gather your guests around campfires or fire pits and enjoy these sweet treats. Whether a blast from the past or something new, s’mores are a winner every time.

4. Whisky bar

Curate a glamorous collection of Scotland’s finest whiskies, complete with ice, soda and glasses to serve.

5. Cigar bar

Continue reading below…

Another way to continue the gentlemanly theme is to cater your wedding with cigars complete with vintage boxes and accessories.

6. Photo Booth

Can you really have a wedding reception without one? Provide your guests with all the photo booth props they need to create those Kodak moments. 

It’s a party essential – choose a playlist that spans as many decades as your guests for a full dance floor all night long.

8. Table Chefs

Nominate a guest to become the chef and carve the meat at the table. Not simply an excellent ice breaker, this is actually an efficient way to serve the food too.

9.

 Advice Cards

Leave an advice card with each place setting and see what words of wisdom your guests extoll.

Ideal for entertaining younger guests during the wedding breakfast, a magician can also work the room with card tricks for your drinks reception.

11. Caricaturist

For a fun take on wedding favours!

12. Live Painter

Another way to capture the magic, which you can forever treasure when hung on your wall.

13. Dove Release

This tradition might be less prevalent than your something old and your something new, but it is tradition nonetheless, and a breathtaking one at that…

14. Butterfly Release

For similar style on a smaller scale!

15. Table Trivia

Stock up on trivia cards or host a Mr & Mrs quiz to entertain guests between courses.

16. Croquet

It’s a garden game classic that comes with easy instructions, easy set up and a whole lot of fun.

Kids will love to get involved with this one! Check out Sid & Olive for a gorgeously vintage range of garden games, from rustic ring toss to skittles and, of course, several sizes of Jenga. They also offer a beautiful range of decorations, signs and lighting to hire…

18. Pets at Weddings

Perhaps your dog will be your ring bearer, or maybe your new puppy will join you after the ceremony. Any which way, we’re sure your guests will love to cuddle furry friends on the day.

19. Giant Chess

Thanks to its size, this game is fun and functional, zoning the different outdoor spaces for drinks, photos and play.

20. Bouncy Castle

Embrace your inner child!

21. Space Hoppers

May we refer you to the previous point? Purchase some space hoppers and watch the madness unfold. 

22. Picnics

Embrace the trend for relaxed, rustic weddings and dine alfresco. Pack up hampers of charcuterie, freshly baked bread, cheese, salads and drinks to serve up a low-key feast.

23. Birds of Prey

For a more dramatic entertainment option, why not take to the skies? You don’t have to do this literally – simply enlist the help of your local birds of prey centre, and have a golden eagle soar or an owl swoop past.

24. Bake off

A budget friendly and interactive way to fill your dessert table for less! Guests will love to be involved. It’s a lovely touch to give out prizes, medals or awards for the best bakes at the end.

25. Awards Ceremony

Host one during your speeches and cover as many people as possible… from the best-dressed guest to the best man.

26. Couple’s Cocktails

Make your pitcher perfect with adorable paper straws, Mason Jar cups and garnishes galore.

27. Pimp Your Prosecco bar

Because there’s only one thing better than prosecco, and that’s prosecco with extras! Pimp your drinks with Popaball’s fruity bursting bubbles and drink shimmers. Simply add a spoon of fruity bubbles to your fizz, or watch your tipple transform with Popaball’s drink shimmers.

28. Ice Cream Stall

This one’s perfect for summer weddings. Having a vintage theme? Hire an old-school ice cream cart rather than a modern-day van to enhance the vibe.

Kerrie Mitchell Photography

29. Cake Buffet

Simply ask your nearest and dearest to bake and bring, to stock up a cake buffet fit for a king!

30. Sweet Cart

A sweet cart offers a satisfying finish to your evening buffet and can continue to be picked at throughout the night. Sweet bags can also double-up as your wedding favours that appeal to kids and adults alike. Opt for a family-run business like, Sweetheart Moments, as they’ll tailor the glassware, decor and sweets to your colour and wedding theme.

31. String Quartet

If your budget will stretch a little further, the enchanting notes of a string quartet such as Status Cymbal, will give your ceremony so much atmosphere. There’s nothing quite as romantic as your procession music played by a professional string quartet. 

One of the most romantic sounds of all time, harpists are perfect for ceremonies and sophisticated drinks receptions.

33. Opera Singers

One of our featured couples recently had opera singers as she walked down the aisle. We think they’d make a dramatic feature at a drinks reception, too.

34. Jazz Band

One of the easiest ways to ensure a packed dance floor is to choose a genre that people just can’t help but dance to. A live band like Oompah Brass are a sure-fire way of getting your guests up on their feet. Read our guide on how to choose a band for your wedding.

Oompah Brass

35. Casino

One for the grown-ups! You’ll find many hire options, from roulette wheels to cards tables and more.

36. Fancy Dress

Now we’re not saying fancy dress is the best wedding dress code, but it does make for great fun in a photo booth.

37. Comedian

Make your guests laugh with the help of a comedian, who can entertain you during the wedding breakfast.

38. Karaoke

Save this one for later in the night and you’re bound to get even more brilliant, hilarious and enthusiastic results!

39. Mr & Mrs Quiz

Just how well do your guests really know you? It’s time to find out with this wedding entertainment idea!

40.

Ballroom Dancing

If you love all things grand but don’t want to be the star of the show, ask other couples to join you for a traditional waltz.

41. Ceilidh

Whether you’re Scottish or not, ceilidhs are one of the best wedding entertainment ideas to get all of your guests involved. Plus, they’re not something that everyone will have seen before.

42. Fire Breathers

While we absolutely love them, you might well have already attended a wedding with a fireworks display. Choose fire breathers, on the other hand, and you’re sure to stand out.

43. Circus Show

For wedding entertainment ideas that you don’t see every day, look to the circus. You could hire all manner of performers to put on your very own big day circus show.

44. Fairground Rides

Tying the knot in a venue with expansive, rolling grounds? You could hire a ferris wheel to make your guests smile and take some super cute snaps.

45. Singing Waiters

These are the go-to performers for a surprise during your wedding breakfast. You guessed it… one minute they’re serving Bellinis, the next they’re belting out a ballad! We recommend The Three Waiters. With 11,000 shows under their belt, they’re sure to make your wedding surprise go without a hitch.

46. Confetti Canons

Give your first dance the wow factor with a shower of colourful confetti. Give your guests the fun of setting them off with these confetti canons. 

47. Lights Show

If you’re including up-lighting in your venue decor, you could ask the lighting gurus to create a custom light show too, so that, come evening, your dancing gets a buzzing backdrop of colour.

48. Surprise Talents

Add an element of surprise to your entertainment ideas for your wedding. Maybe you’re a secret rock goddess? Or your husband has always dreamed of DJing… We’re taking inspiration from our featured couples on this one, who we’ve seen do everything from sing during the ceremony to play in the band at night and even a dressmaker who also DJs!

49.

Flash mob

Not limited to dance routines (although they’re an ace option), your maid of honour could coordinate a surprise sing-a-long during the speeches, or your bridal party could join you for a surprise first dance routine.

50. Choreographed Routine

Dance lessons won’t just help you look great on the day, they’ll also help you to relax and enjoy your first dance. Take this quiz to find your first dance song.

lindseyocker.com

51. Piñata

7 fun wedding reception entertainment ideas

Food, music and entertainment – the 3 main aspects that every wedding reception should have. However, if you’re looking to change things up by involving your guests in the entertainment instead of getting entertainment for them, here are some ideas that will have your guests laughing a little louder and leaving with more meaningful memories of your wedding.  

Song and dance
Instead of the usual table number assignments, give each table a song title. Throughout the reception, if the song gets played, everyone sitting at that table will have to stand up and dance. 

Not only will this keep everyone on their toes, but it will also allow them to show off their dance moves, and entertain your other guests. You can even offer prizes to the table with the most creative moves or to the table with the most team-spirit. It’ll definitely give your guests and you a wonderful memory! 

Karaoke
Instead of getting a band or any other sort of music entertainment, set up a karaoke system and keep each other entertained! There’s no better way to interact with your guests than with karaoke. Not only will this create a wonderful atmosphere, but it will also give your guests something more to look forward to. 

A tip to consider: include a song request slip together with your wedding invitations to gather song requests as well as inform guests that they have to participate! 

Fill-in-the-blanks Cards
Print fill-in-the-blank cards for advice from your guests on love and married life. For example: “My best advice: On your first anniversary, don’t forget to ____.” You can always customise the card however you want and replace the content with anything you want instead of advice. 

Throughout the reception, get your emcee to pick random guests to read off their cards for everyone to know what they said or get your guests to place their cards in a collection box and throughout the reception, either your spouse or you can pick out a random card to read from. 

Bride and Groom trivia 
Create a trivia based on both your spouse and yourself and get your emcee to select random guests to play along. To make things more interesting, ensure that only the groom’s side can answer questions about the bride and vice-versa. Create questions with levels of difficulties to include as many guests as possible. For example, come up with questions about your growing up years for your family members to play and another set of questions of your teenage years for both family and friends! 

Puzzle Menu
Just like ice-breaker games that we used to play in school, this can act as an ice-breaker game for your guests. Print out your menu and cut them up into puzzled shaped pieces. For your guests to know the full menu and its description, they will have to work together as a table to put these pieces together. To make things more interesting, you can even make it into a competition. 

I spy 
This activity has more benefit for your spouse and you rather than your guests. For this activity, you can place a list of items your guests should capture with their own camera and upload it and add your wedding hashtag. This will give you the chance to see your wedding from your guest’s point of view and it will also give them something exciting to look forward to. 

Examples of what you can include are, an adult and child dancing, a kiss, someone laughing, someone eating, etc. the list can go on and on. 

Dance-off 
Usually, when the dance floor is opened, most guests might be too shy to start it off. In order to encourage them to have fun, start a dance off by gathering a group of friends to start or you can start the dance off as a couple. One way to make it interesting and to ensure everyone participates is to incorporate the rules of “catch” into this. For example, after the current dancer finishes, she/he will point to a person and the selected person will have to go up next to dance.

Wedding Venue Singapore | Wedding Reception | Wedding Banquet

 

In a conventional wedding, guests register at the entrance, then wait for the couple to march in before they enjoy dinner. After that, the couple will march in again with a change of attire and pop the champagne and cut the cake, then ending the night with a customary yuuuuuuuuuuuum seng!

However, more and more couples are hoping for a more interesting wedding to involve their guests more. If you are worried that your wedding banquet will be dry and boring with guests who are completely out of the situation, read on to see some suggestions to make your wedding banquet more interesting!

 

1) Ask your guests to tell you their favourite songs when RSVP-ing

When sending out your invites, consider asking your guests to RSVP along with their favourite songs and compile the more popular ones together for a wedding playlist.

Not only does a good wedding playlist hype up the atmosphere, it also serves as a great conversation starter for guests from both the bride and groom’s side to encourage mixing!

It is always good to appeal to your guests rather than to let them sit around in silence or even worse— poor music that makes them want to run out of the wedding!

 

2) Have a get-to-know-your-table game

Photo credits to Craft Weddings

Organizing some table games need not be too complicated. Even a simple game of Pictionary or some card games (if there are no kids at the table) can help the guests to get them to know one another.

This also helps to entertain the guests while the bride and groom are busy so that every table remains lively and fun throughout the banquet!

 

3) Have some fun with balloons during your march-in

Photo credits to Balloon Blasters

What else could grab the attention of your guests other than pretty floating coloured balls?

Other than leaving them on the aisle as you march-in to create a dreamy effect, you could also get your flower girl and boy to hold onto some pastel-coloured helium balloons to make your guests go “Awwww!”

If you have any other balloon ideas, go ahead with it! It can make your young guests more excited for the upcoming activities for the night as well

 

4) Organize a wedding lucky draw

Coming up with some prizes to give away can help to wow the crowd for sure…

But if you have a smaller budget, you can consider making some handmade prizes to fit in with the wedding theme and show some appreciation for your guests.

After all, the prizes are secondary and the sincerity of the prizes may go a longer way than expensive ones in terms of creating that buzz from your audience.

 

5) Q & A session with the couple

Photo credits to Express-Oh Photography

Ultimately, the wedding is all about the couple. Guests from both sides would be likely to want to take the opportunity to find out more about the other side and the couple’s story.

An interesting Question & Answer (Q&A) session from the audience with the couple can allow greater interaction and also garner some interesting stories to liven up the atmosphere!

In contrast to dull wedding speeches, this will definitely up the fun factor and get the guests interested!

 

6)    Hire a magician

For the higher-budget weddings, you can consider getting a magician to dazzle your audience with some great performances for the night.

While on-stage performances are a must, the magician can also go down to the individual tables and perform some close up magic, and/or small tricks to create some laughs among the tables to help break the ice among the guests!

Let Tommy The Magician dazzle and entertain your guest 

 

7) Plan a surprise item for your husband/wife-to-be

To make your wedding truly memorable for your other half, you might want to put up a surprise item for him/her!

If you would like an elaborate one, maybe a boy band/girl band dance item with your friends/family can make your husband/wife-to-be laugh off the embarrassment and enjoy the spotlight.

But if you would like a simpler idea, you can also plan something small such as a song dedication to create music only for his/her ears.

 

8) Spice up your march-in

If a serious march-in is not the thing for you, loosen up the atmosphere! Like the incorporation of balloons above, you could further shake things up with a more interesting entrance.

Dancing or singing on your way in would definitely make it unforgettable, and your guests would love it as well!

Since you are likely to be nervous during your march-in, jazzing it up a little would help you feel better as your guests applaud and laugh as you enter instead of staring at you.

 

9) Ask guests to contribute to date night ideas for the couple

Photo credits to LulaWithLove

This is taking up the well wishes of the guests for the couple up a notch by getting them to write some date night suggestions and collecting them to actually get them to contribute to the couple’s great married life together!

This would be a great memento for the couple, and also have some practical value for them so why not do this?

 

10) Create a form for each of the guest to fill in 

Image credits to charlesbenedict.com

Instead of the usual guestbook, why not create a form where the guest could have fun filling in the form while waiting for the banquet to start? It will be so fun to read the responses after the wedding, and what a great keepsake it will be!

 

—————————————————————————————

 

Do these ideas excite you already? While it is difficult to involve all the guests during the wedding, these ideas could make it easier for the couple to juggle their busy night with their guests while having fun. With that, we hope to hear from you if you have any more interesting ideas, or used any of the ideas above (email to us at [email protected]).

 

With love,

American Style Wedding

There is something so beautiful about Americana, whether you are at home, Ukraine, America or Europe, the stars and stripes look fresh, fun and festive. YesYes has prepared for you a portion of inspiration and ideas on how to arrange an American style wedding.

Decor & Colors

When we talk about the United States of America, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Of course, the American flag is the famous bright symbol of freedom! And let your American style wedding be just as bright.If the idea of ​​hanging and placing American flags seems banal to you, we will only support you. The main thing that needs to be borrowed from the US attribute is the colors: red, white and blue. And then – the flight of your imagination!

The classic American wedding is an off-site ceremony, buffet and banquet. And since the American style wedding is celebrated most often in the summer, the ideal place is: nature, a blooming garden, a country house, a farm. White fresh flowers and an abundance of greenery are ideal for a wedding arch.Above banquet tables, you can hang paper pom-poms in red and blue, or glowing garlands.

Red tablecloths can be placed on tables, then blue or blue dishes and white flowers in vases together create an American color scheme. Details such as numbers on tables, gifts for guests, newlyweds in America often do it themselves. This adds a special flavor to the decor.

Why not emphasize the American style with a bright, typical for the United States, feature? Let it be a rented ice cream van or a barberyu area, a Pepsi-Cola fountain or a photo booth.The result is a two-in-one effect: entertainment for guests and authentic decor!

The image of the bride and groom in the American style

America is a country of free morals, so the bride can experiment with her image as her heart desires. But oddly enough, most often “American” brides choose dresses in a figure in a classic white color.

Styling – the legendary American wave. But again, pay attention: there are no rules, you can afford to be anyone! Neat, discreet makeup and invariably red lipstick – there is in this image something of Merlin Monroe herself.The American style bride is feminine, natural, self-sufficient.

American style groom looks bright and positive. A suit in blue would be the perfect choice. The highlight of the image is an unusual catchy bow tie or sneakers.

Floristry

Florists use a lot of greenery and only fresh flowers to decorate a wedding event in the American style. When creating your bridal bouquet, you can choose anemones, roses, succulents and green filler. Let it be in light colors.

But bridesmaids will come in handy with bouquets with bright blue and red flowers, which will support the overall color scheme of your Ameri wedding.

Groom’s boutonniere – repeats the mood of your bouquet, it can even be a single white rose with greenery. Then the groom’s friends can be offered red roses – stylishly and harmoniously!

Treats

In America, it is customary to add two types of hot dishes to the banquet menu, giving guests the opportunity to choose between pork and poultry.

Candy bar – this is a field for imagination! Star-shaped cookies with white icing, red and blue cakes, and of course coca-cola in glass bottles with bright tubes – here are some ideas from YesYes . Homemade round pies decorated with strawberries and blueberries in red and blue colors will look very cool and American-style.

Traditional American cake is a white sponge cake with a white fondant or iced mask.

In the USA, couples sometimes pretend (or not!) And after the cake-cutting ceremony, when they feed each other, they smear each other’s faces with cream! It looks very funny.

Let your wedding be rock and roll, fun and unique!

90,000 No boring wedding: 10 ideas for entertaining guests

A wedding is not only a feast in the mountains, it is also emotions of a different order, impressions of the atmosphere. And in their creation, the entertainment program for the guests of the holiday plays an important role. If a large-scale wedding is planned with a large number of guests, then one toastmaster will not be enough. It is necessary to think over an interactive for guests, which will skillfully cover the entire wedding day – the period of the day’s walk, the photo session of the newlyweds, the time before and after the banquet, preventing anyone from being bored and languishing from idleness.

What kind of wedding entertainment is in vogue today? The leading informational Internet resource www.4banket.ru tells about the most popular ways how to entertain guests at a wedding in a fun and interesting way. Follow us!

10 fun ideas

1. Modern photo entertainment – Instagram photos, hashtags and photo booths

The universal craze for Instagram makes this type of photo entertainment, like Instagram photos, very popular.Renting a vending machine that allows you to upload and print photos from Instagram is very popular with wedding guests and allows newlyweds to create an online photo broadcast of their wedding events.

Photo zone is another way to add variety to the welcome-zone and fill the time of guests gathering for a festive dinner. A sign of the times and a tribute to social networks is the use of photo layouts with hashtags, invented specifically for the wedding.

Also, props in the style of a wedding and universal are selected for the photo zone – mustaches, hats, lips, pipes, picture frames, plates with the inscriptions and initials of the newlyweds.

Note : Photo booths and an instant Polaroid photo are welcome. The optimal time for such entertainment is before the banquet and at the second or third hour of the feast, when the guests have already relaxed and are tired of sitting at the table. In this case, the photos are more natural and relaxed.

2. Board games – mini and grand format

Board games of all ages are submissive, which makes this kind of entertainment universal.The main thing is to organize and think everything right.

5 Board Game Tricks
  • Board games for every age.

Chess, checkers, backgammon require more prepared and sophisticated players. But the game in loto or dominoes may well be played by beginners. Jenga, twister, crocodile, association, Danetki love funny and perky players who are prone to artistry and improvisation. Monopoly, uno, polymath have a wide army of admirers and are very popular both among young people and more mature age.

  • Each game has its own time .

The best time for board games is the period of gathering guests for a festive dinner and after the end of its official part, when you can play to your heart’s content without being afraid to miss something important from the evening’s program.

Note : so that guests can relax and unwind as much as possible, you need to ask the host to group congratulations and wishes in the first part of the evening.

  • Duration of the game and the number of participants.

In order for the game to become an easy and pleasant form of leisure at the holiday, you need to choose not too long options. This will allow the participants to change more often and not let them and the fans get bored of the monotony.

Advice: 30 minutes is the maximum duration of the game. And it is better to choose those options in which the maximum number of participants is involved. It’s more fun this way.

  • Suitable location.

We need a special play area equipped with everything you need – tables, inventory – cubes, chips, slate board or notebooks to record the current score.

Tip: prepared prizes will increase the intrigue and activity of the participants. As a prize for adult winners, original alcohol will be suitable, for children – sweets.

  • Various formats.

Some of the outdoor board games are becoming more spectacular, acquiring a gigantic format – chess, twister, jenga.

3. Active outdoor activities

This is a win-win entertainment for summer weddings that choose outdoor areas with lawns.

Active outdoor games are good because they capture a large number of participants, of different ages, into their halo and contribute to their rallying and fun together.

Cricket and petanque / boccia are good options for not fatiguing options. For gamblers – quests with solving clues and finding a prize.

Simple and exciting competition – “Who is in charge of the family?”, With a tug-of-war.

Note : It is important to discuss with the host in advance all outdoor games and the time of their holding – so that the guests are already cheerful, and their outfits are not threatened by crawling on the green grass and jumping in bags.

4. Wedding master classes

The most suitable for a wedding are: dance, floral, culinary master classes, as well as from the category of “hand-made”. It should be something lightweight and not very long, with a minimum of inventory, so that you can easily organize and equip the venue.

The laws of organizing wedding master classes include:

– the more guests, the easier the master class.Choose such that the participants can be divided into teams;

– each themed wedding has its own master class. So, for example, for an oriental-style wedding, a dance master class is selected with learning belly or Indian dance, for a Spanish wedding, you can choose a cigar-rolling master class, for an Italian one – for baking pizza;

– each master class has its own time. Floristic workshops are usually organized before the banquet, offering, for example, to collect a bouquet for the bride.The dance lesson is in the middle of the evening, after the end of the official part.

5. Entertainment shows

The most popular at weddings are performances: clowns, magicians, dancers, cover bands, caricatures, as well as – sand show, bubble show, fire show, bartender show.

Tip: the first number is put one hour after the start of the banquet, so that the guests have time to have a snack and make the first toasts. The performances are then distributed throughout the evening, increasing the frequency towards the end.

6.Live music

A separate type of entertainment program at a wedding. This is both filling in the musical breaks and accompanying the dance part of the evening. Suitable for any size and format of the wedding. Various musical compositions and performers are selected: solos, duets, cover bands, string quartets, jazz musical ensembles or those working in the disco, blues style.

Live music will decorate the welcome buffet, the wedding ceremony, and all stages of the wedding banquet.

7. Wedding Crosswords

A crossword puzzle, the theme of which is hobbies and interesting facts about the newlyweds, is good entertainment for guests, which, depending on the design, can become both a memorable gift about the event, and individual or group thematic entertainment.

The crossword puzzle can be designed and printed on separate sheets of small size, or in the format of a wedding newspaper, magazine issue, or as a wall newspaper / poster for guests to guess together.

Questions are often selected of a humorous nature and relate to the hobbies of the newlyweds, their zodiac signs, culinary preferences, place of acquaintance, first date.

Note: The welcome buffet area is well suited for this type of entertainment, which then turns into a relaxation area. Next to the crosswords, you need to put enough pens / pencils, and prepare a prize for the first person who guessed the entire crossword puzzle.

8. Video congratulations to newlyweds

Having a videographer will make the task easier, but it is not required.It can be replaced by a video camera with instructions located in the photo zone. Guests record small, 20-30-second video congratulations to the newlyweds, share their impressions of the event on camera.

Joint viewing of recordings can be organized at the end of the wedding evening, which will also be part of the entertainment program.

Tip: It is better to postpone the filming process until the middle of the banquet, when the guests are already relaxed and do not feel constrained in front of the camera.

9. Live or on-site quest

Quests are in trend today. They also did not escape the sphere of wedding entertainment. There are two types of quests, differing in scale and method of organization – live and on-site.

The first type is organized by professional firms specializing in this kind of entertainment. They will help you choose and conduct a quest suitable for the type of wedding venue.

The exit quest will arrive at the wedding in an equipped container in the form of a kind of room with a quest on wheels, which is also very convenient.

Note : This type of entertainment is suitable for cheerful youth weddings held in spacious countryside venues.

10. Open-air cinema

An excellent type of wedding entertainment for informal, family events, as well as those held in the format of a buffet table.

Lyric, romantic comedies with a cheerful, life-affirming ending are selected for viewing. The film program of the evening can be printed out in advance and distributed to guests in the welcome area.Between the screenings, you can insert wedding videos telling about the newlyweds, their love stories, as well as video congratulations to guests recorded at the wedding.

Tip: blankets, soft pillows, thermoses with hot drinks and a table with tea snacks – all this should be thought out and prepared in advance.

Your favorite movie under the stars will be the perfect end to a bright wedding day, its atmospheric final chord.
