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 three 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 smores, popcorn, soft pretzels, or a bloody mary 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 Complete Tyler caterers that can help bring your display table or food station to life:

  • C Rojos
  • Potporri House
  • Azalea Catering
  • Stanley’s Famous Pit Barbecue

Anniversary Dance

Your DJ will extend an invite to all married couples to come out to the dance floor so that they can share a dance with the Newlyweds. (This is typically a slower song for a slow dance but anything goes!). Once all couples have made it to the dance floor your DJ will ask couples who have been married less than a year (minus the Newlyweds), 5 years, 10 years, 15 years, and so on to please leave the dance floor. The bride and groom will be left dancing with the couple that has been married the longest. The DJ will then ask the longest-married couple to share a word of advice

Shoe Game

Allow your guest the opportunity to get to know you and your fiancé better. How is it done? Three simple steps.

Step 1: Set the Game Up
Put two chairs back to back in the center of the dance floor. The Bride and Groom should sit back to back so that they can’t see one another. Have both of them take off their shoes and swap one of them (That way each participant will have one of each).

Step 2: The DJ will start reading out questions about you and your fiancé (spouse). Similar to these. Who said I love you first? Or Who is the best cook?
It’s always best to have 10-15 questions

Step 3: Lift your Shoes
In order for the Bride and Groom to answer the questions asked by the DJ, the Bride and Groom must lift up one of the shoes to answer the question asked. Example: The Bride lifts up her shoe to answer that she said I love you first.

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.

Complete Interactive – Guest Engagement at its Best!

With Complete Interactive, your Complete Weddings + Events DJ introduces various activities for your guests to participate in while their answers and submissions are displayed live at your reception. This unique DJ option includes the following elements you can choose from to fit into your evening’s timeline.

Social Media Wall

Allow all your wedding guests to experience the virtual social media stream of your event, group meeting, or activity. The social wall lets you submit photos and/or messages from your custom url or hashtag to display at the event virtually, or you can integrate Twitter or Instagram so those posts with your hashtag will be displayed.

Crowd Questionnaire or Trivia

A fun questionnaire on the couple is always a great way for guests to learn more about the couple or see who knows them best! Complete can also provide trivia questions, which is a great way to battle to decide who will be served dinner first or to win bragging rights for the evening. With Complete Interactive, we can show the live rankings on the screen to let everyone know who’s in the lead!

Polls

See instant answers from the audience as they interact with the platform on their phone choosing from options and sending in their answers from either a multiple choice. We love having guests vote on their favorite songs to help tailor the soundtrack of the evening to the liking of the crowd (with couple-approved choices of course).
