Games for all ages

Kids on the reception can get bored with all the adult stuff going on in the party. Be sure that the little tykes are also entertained during the event.

Include a lot of dancing and interaction among your guests when conceptualizing games to ensure that everyone would gain a friend or two after the celebration.

Be Entertaining

Have a background music playing throughout the celebration to keep the pace going for your guests. Change the mood according to the current activity to keep the vibe fun and light. You can even have small puzzles or crosswords placed on the tables to entertain guests while shifting from one part of the program to another. A live band is also a great idea especially if there are a lot of singers willing to give a song or two during the event.

Surprise Your Guests

Surprise your guests with the party favors that you are giving out. It can be a nice book that can inspire them as they go home reminiscing the good time they had during your wedding party. Chocolates for the kids, a little music box with the bride and groom dancing inside when opened. You can even share a few special gifts for the special people that helped you throughout the planning of the wedding up to the celebration like your parents, friends and even your wedding planner.

Your wedding party does not necessarily need to be as unique as possible or as grand as the others. As long as your guests are happy and the bride and groom are happy, you can consider your wedding party as a perfect one.
