Organizing a wedding can be a pretty stressful affair, and keeping everyone entertained all day can be tricky.

How will you keep Auntie Nora from scrapping with Auntie Dora? Will Uncle Bob get drunk and try to reenact The Full Monty again? You can never tell what families will get up to when they’re all put in a room together – with a free bar.

However, keeping them entertained with these quirky ideas is a great way to keep them occupied and happy so that you can enjoy your day.

1. Photo scavenger hunt

A photo scavenger hunt is a great idea for kids and grown-ups alike, plus it means that you will end up with lots of fun photos of your special day.

The basic idea is that you provide each table with a couple of disposable cameras, and a list of photos that they need to try and get throughout the day. The quirkier the list, the more fun the game and the better shots you end up with!

2. Caricaturists

Caricaturists are great fun for people of all ages. Your guests will love sitting to have their picture drawn while they’re all dressed in their best clothes, and seeing how the artist interprets them is always hilarious.

Have a look at caricaturists for hire in your area, and give your guests (and you!) some tremendous and personalized mementos of your day.

3. Hot chocolate bar

This is a charming idea for winter weddings, or for when evening time rolls around. It’s also great because it’s something that designated drivers and children can get involved with too!

You can pick up the supplies for your own DIY hot chocolate bar in the supermarket so it’s great for people on a budget, and you can personalize it to make it look exactly as you want it to. Try setting it up on a rustic looking cart or bar made of old pallets, and provide ideas for different flavor combinations to try on chalkboards.

4. Lawn games

If you’re getting married in the summer and your venue has some outdoor space, it’s a great idea to encourage people to go outside. It will give your venue staff a chance to change seating around between the wedding breakfast and the evening celebrations if needed, and if you have kids in attendance, it gives them a chance to run around and burn off some energy!

You can hire classic lawn games like giant Connect Four, Jenga, and even Space Hoppers. Or you could even try making some games of your own.

5. Date ideas jar

That period of time after you get married can feel like a bit of an anti-climax. You can get your guests to help you with this by setting out a jar with paper and pens, and asking your guests to suggest fun date night ideas for you.

No doubt you will end up with some truly awful ones from the comedians in your group, but that’s all part of the fun!

6. Silent disco

Silent discos are hugely underrated! They are a fantastic idea for your evening entertainment because they are fun for all the family to enjoy, and you usually have multiple channels to choose from so everyone can listen to music that they really like.

The fact that it is a silent disco also means that people don’t have to take part if they don’t want to. For the quieter guests, they can easily have a conversation without having to shout over the top of the noise!
