Fun Ways to Keep Your Wedding Guests Entertained in Austin, TX


Entertaining wedding guests that have different interests can be hard. Although dancing is the main attraction at weddings, not everyone likes to dance. In fact, a lot of people will sit there watching everyone dance until they are ready to leave or the wedding is over. It can be hard on the happy couple and DJ as they are trying to ensure everyone has a wonderful time. We have found some ideas that can help entertain all wedding guests at any kind of venue.

Inside Venues Ideas 

Indoor venues are a great place to allow people to dance their hearts way. These types of wedding venues also have places to set up board games, poker, or card games. This can give guests the chance to meet people that the bride and groom know. Indoor venues are also great for video game consoles and classic games. Coloring books or legos at different tables can help younger guests, and introverts feel more comfortable and enjoy the party as much as the extroverts busting the hot moves on the dance floor. 


Outside Venues Ideas

Outdoor venues are a great place to enjoy the cool or warm weather while celebrating the newly married couple. Don’t worry about having enough space for everyone, including vendors. Your wedding guests can have the option of dancing their heart away or playing games with strangers that are now family. Good games to play at weddings are:

  • Corn hole
  • Ring Toss
  • Croquet
  • Bocce Ball – Basic Rules 
  • Balloon Darts

Lastly, you can bring everybody together and have s’mores and hotdogs by a bonfire.


Inside or Outside Ideas

It’s easier to get the small details out of the way so the rest of the budget can go towards the perfect dress, venue, and food. Not knowing if the perfect venue is inside or outside should never be a worry. Your guest can dance the night away or enjoy playing games with other guests:

  • Jenga/Giant Jenga
  • Connect four/Giant Connect four
  • Wheel of fun: Have fun with the bride and groom. You can have full creativity with this one and make it fun for you and your guest. 
  • Photobooth: Austin photo booth rentals are a hit whether they are inside or outside. Give every guest a chance to take home a souvenir of the special day and have a chance to take a picture with the bride or groom or both. 
  • Picture scavenger hunt: Have everyone involved and take selfies around the venue and with the bride and groom.
  • The Shoe Game
