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.

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!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
