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!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
