We are trying to make our wedding as fun as possible for our guests.  I have a couple of ideas for the wedding:

 

1 - Giving guests beach balls to throw during the recessional, we are also planning on playing Georgia Satellites - Keep your Hands to yourself :)

2 - Having glow bracelets for the guests for during the dinner and rest of the evening

3 - Doing a photo booth guest book with props and a chalk board to give us their wedding advice

 

We aren't having a DJ, my FI parents are pretty reserved so we are just having a dinner and then the "younger" people are going to party the rest of the night away with some bar hopping.

 

Does anyone have any other FUN ideas!

    I just had a conversation with my bridesmaids about it too!!!!!

     

    how about these. I am thinking about the second with some Q&A:

    1. Beanbag. Yes, it is not sandbag. This classic beanbag game can easily be DIYed for your wedding; add your silhouettes or monograms, or get a set in your wedding colors. http://www.fotavo.co...6hID70CuVLizdRA
    2. Flip cup ~Start off this drinking game with a round of boys vs. girls: the groom and the groomsmen against the bride and bridesmaids! Then, open it up to the rest of the guests. http://www.fotavo.co...MsXQCvjcBJtFhTp I like the game because it is much like a group game that can cheer up the whole guests.

    Yup #1 and #2 are on my list too! And our photographer added in a photobooth with props to our package so we will have this at the reception.

    Also planning on adding a go-pro camera to a bottle of tequila during the dance (saw this on a brides video and it was amazing and hilariously fun!)

    We are having a DJ so hoping the party goes til 11pm outdoors and then moves to the disco after. Funny- we are considered old by many but still want to have a great FUN wedding.

    Ale sure you talk to your resorts. Many resorts are now banning these due to fire hazard- which I was bummed about since they are gorgeous... But alas they are not allowed at my resort!
