Amazing ways to entertain your wedding guests

Keeping your wedding guests entertained is one of the most important things that you can do as a couple during your wedding day.

Of course, it is down to them to make sure that they have a good time, but if you can lay the foundations then this will definitely help.

It can be hard to think of ways to make sure that your guests are entertained, so, to help you, we have put together some of the best ideas that you can try for yourself.

Live music

Live music is a great way to make sure that your guests are impressed.

We love the idea of having an acoustic singer (or band if you like) playing during the lull between the ceremony and the reception.

Not only does this set the mood for the party, but it also helps to keep your guests entertained when they could otherwise feel a little on the bored side.


Taking a step up from live music, if you really want to entertain your guests then find someone who is going to take care of that.

Magicians are a popular choice for many couples as they are fun and they are interesting too.

You can get them to mingle around with the guests and perform up close tricks, which will really help to impress them.


A popular idea for many couples is to provide games and activities or their guests.

The type of things that you offer will really depend on the space that you have.

Jenga, bean bag throwing and duck races all seem to be popular however, some simple garden games might be all that they need to entertain themselves.

Hire an artist

One form of entertainment that is definitely becoming more popular is that of an artist, such as a caricaturist drawing pictures of your guests.

This is great fun for your guests and they also get to take home something unique that they can treasure for some time to come.

A photo booth

Photo booths are being seen at more and more weddings, with good reason.

They are not only entertaining for your guests, but much like a caricaturist, then they get something that they can take home afterwards.

You can even make their photo booth photos somewhat of a guestbook, asking them to stick them into a book and add a message.

These are just some of the ideas that you can try out for yourself with your guests.

However, there are so many more that you should never run out of approaches.

The main thing is to think about not only what will make your guests smile, but that you will also be able to enjoy as a couple too.

That is the most important thing to keep in mind.
