Quite often many of my clients simply want me to play a mix of their favourite tunes and play all of the favourite floor fillers, which is fine. However, more and more of my clients are asking for something a bit extra, something that is really memorable.
I believe memories are made by really involving people in the experience this can be the difference between a good event and an experience that lasts a lifetime.

Over the next few posts I’m going to share with you some ideas which I hope might inspire you if you are in the process of planning your big day.

Whilst we are on the theme of creative ideas for your wedding reception, take a look at this video. This is a really interactive game that is a great ice breaker which all of your guests can participate in or enjoy from the comfort of their chair, either way it’s a great way to get the crowd warmed up. You can have a lot of fun with this as you will see from the video. Of course this can work either with the Bride or Groom being blindfolded.

Watch the video and let me know what you think.

7 Ways to Make Your Reception More Fun!

Here are 7 Ways to Make your Wedding Reception more Fun courtesy of Bridal Guide! You can find the original post here courtesy of Bridal File.

1. Table Games: I Spy

Not only is this fun for kids and adults alike, but it’s a wonderful way to get extra photos from your wedding. Ask your guests to use their digital cameras or smartphones to capture the moments even the best photographers sometimes miss. Add a line on your “I Spy” card with an address where guests can upload photos (try one of these apps!). Bonus: With digital cameras, you don’t have to worry about wasting money developing less-than- stellar photos from disposables.

2. Table Games: Mad Libs

Who doesn’t love Mad Libs? This dinner-table activity is also a great way for your guests to bond as they ask each other questions. Plus, you’ll get a kick out of reading all of the responses after the wedding.

3. Table Games: Booklets

Come up with a question for each table, and put a mini booklet and pens for guests to add their ideas. Some suggestions: What should we do on date nights? What should we name our first child? How should we celebrate our first anniversary? What’s the secret to a happy marriage?

Or, place a booklet on each table that corresponds to the table number, and ask guests to write a message for you to read on that anniversary. No peeking until you hit each milestone!

4. Table Games: Guess Who?

Create personalized boards featuring your wedding guests! You can build a mini set for each table, featuring the guests at that table, or create “bride’s side” and “groom’s side” versions, giving the bride’s side to the groom’s side and vice versa. This will help your guests learn each other’s names and faces. Bonus: Since you’re talking about real people, you can ask more personalized questions than just “does this person have a mustache?”

5. Group Games: Rock Band

This gamer couple incorporated Rock Band in their first dance; they grabbed guitars and rocked out to a rendition of a song by their favorite band. Later, they moved the gaming system over to a special area where guests could try their hand throughout the night.

6. Group Games: The Shoe Game

This hilarious game is a great way for guests to get to know you better as you learn how much you really know about each other. Place two chairs back-to-back on the dance floor. Remove both of your shoes, then trade a shoe with your new spouse so that you’re holding one of each. Then, have a designated person ask a series of questions about the two of you and your relationship (get sample questions here). After each question, hold up the shoe of the person you think has the best answer to the question.

7. Group Games: The Kissing Game

There’s always that one guest who expects the newlyweds to kiss every time he or she clink a glass. And while we know you love smooching your new spouse, kissing on command gets old — fast. Why not make it more challenging? In a fishbowl, add tasks a guest can perform to get you to kiss, from easy to wacky. Some suggestions: Kiss your significant other. Show off your best moves on the dance floor. Tell us a joke that’ll make us laugh. Get your table to play duck-duck-goose with you. The guest can either choose to perform the task or take a seat and try again later.

These are just a selection of ideas which I hope may inspire you for your wedding. I provide a Wedding DJ service covering the South East of England. Please get in touch with me today to discuss making your reception truly unique.
