When it’s your time to bring everyone together, it’s hard not to want something outstanding at your event that everyone remembers! There’s something special about looking around the room and seeing your guests having an enjoyable time at your own wedding or event.
We’ve created a list of easy entertainment ideas to add to your event that can keep your guests entertained while you’re busy taking photos, eating dinner, dancing, or visiting with everyone else. There’s only one of you, so it’s awesome if your guests can be entertained on their own while they wait for speeches, dinner, or a moment to congratulate you in person.
Easy Entertainment Ideas
We’ll dive into a couple of entertainment ideas, all that can be implemented by your vendor, but offer opportunities to add your own ideas to make them custom. These elements help make your wedding or event unique and finding something that fits you and your partner’s personality will help create a more meaningful, memorable day.
Grazing Table Or Food Station – A Delicious Display
Food can absolutely be a form of entertainment! From the time guests arrive, they will eat if it’s provided! Help keep their belly pleased before or after dinner with a delicious display of snacks, desserts, or candy. Create an appealing display with trays and cake stands of varying heights.
An interactive food station, where guests can customize their food creation to their preferences is a win for everyone. Some of our favorite ideas are s’mores, popcorn, soft pretzels, or a Caesar bar. While these are mainly do-it-yourself and low-maintenance activities, you still will want someone’s eyes on the table, like a coordinator or designated helper, to restock and tidy up from time to time.
Here are a few local Kitchener-Waterloo caterers that can help bring your display table or food station to life:
Photo Booth – Complete Customization!
Photo booths are a fun activity with a ton of benefits, whether you’re the creative type or not! Each guest leaves with photo strips in hand documenting the fun they had with the people they love at your wedding! The photo strips can also be customized to include elements personal to your days like wedding colors, hashtags, or dates.
Want to take the customization even further? Create a few of your own photo booth signs or props to use in the booth! Also, with open-air photo booths, you can get creative with your backdrop, or use a unique wall at your venue, for an extra bit of flair!
If you’re not the slow dancing type, a photo booth gives you and your guests a dollar dance alternative. Our Complete Weddings + Events DJ and Photo Booth team will help facilitate a flash photo activity where your guests line up to step in the booth to grab a photo with you and their group! This fun ice breaker gives everyone a chance to get their photo with the couple.
Work with an experienced Complete Kitchener vendor who will help you implement these elements easily! Learn more about Complete Weddings + Events photo booth or DJ services, and contact us to get started!
