Hi all,

 

My wedding is about 2 and a half months away and I'm just wondering of anyone has any ideas on how to keep the party going at the reception. I'm just worried people won't dance or they'll get bored so if anyone has some fun ideas that would be great. I was thinking of maybe bringing fun props or something.  The resort does have a list of entertainment I can hire but it costs an arm and a leg! There will be a fun crowd going down so I'm not tooooo stressed about this but now that the wedding is right around the corner I'm starting to worry!!!

Sorry I don't have any ideas. We just had the DJ to play music for us to dance and the dance floor was full all night. He did a lot of interactive songs - like YMCA and we had a blast.

Congrats!!

I was reading an article somewhere that suggested setting up games to play, such as croquet, giant jenga, hopscotch, etc. Some of these would require renting equipment and some may not be suitable at night, but maybe it gives you some other ideas.

 

What about a photobooth? You can even set up a DIY photobooth so you don't have to rent an actual booth. Get props and let people take selfies or have a standard digital camera set up on a tripod. I've seen brides talk about ordering props on ETSY.

I like the diy photo booth! My moh did that for my shower and it was a hit! I like the idea of games though!! I'll have to do some research! Thanks for the ideas!

Ohhh yes we had glow bracelets that we made into necklaces and head bands and people loved them. We also had maracas as our favors that got used on the dance floor all night.

    We're planning on doing a DIY photobooth :) but other than that just playing music all night. Maybe we'll do a scavenger hunt for pictures but I don't know if that will carry on during the reception. Maybe. 

     

    I like the idea of games but my group loves to dance so much that I think they'd actually be somewhat annoyed if I kept interrupting the party for games haha. However, if there can be games set up aside and people just come and go it would be fun!
