The 6 Best Ways to Entertain Your Wedding Guests

28th November 2017

Attend a happy couple’s wedding day is an honour for both friends and family, but there are some aspects of the big day that are less than enjoyable. If you want to prevent your loved ones from checking their watches throughout the wedding, find out the six best ways to entertain your guests.

Stick to the Wedding Schedule

While it’s hard to be meticulous with the time on your wedding day, it’s important to try to stick to a schedule. After all, your guests will not want to be left waiting too long while you have your wedding photographs taken. However, time delays are often unavoidable, which is why you should provide your wedding guests with a lounge area for them to enjoy a cocktail as they wait. Also, ensure there is music playing and plenty of seating so that people can mingle in a comfortable, party atmosphere.

Feed Your Guests

You might have planned a full dinner at your wedding reception, but you should stop rumbling stomachs by providing a few nibbles for your guests once they reach the reception venue. Delicious canapes will prevent your guests from feeling bored and a little cranky, so they can enjoy something of sustenance and have a good time.

Hire Professional Entertainment

Of course, if you want to entertain your guests, you should hire a professional entertainer to ensure your guests have an unforgettable time on your wedding day. You can choose from a wedding singer, party band or talented musician to encourage guests to sing and dance the night away at your reception. Visit www.entertainment-nation.co.uk to hire a professional act from the popular entertainment agency.

Perfectly Plan the Seating Chart

Nothing is more awkward than being stuck next to people you don’t like at a wedding, and there is not be enough food, drink or entertainment in the world to make a person feel more comfortable. Perfectly planning the seating chart is a cost-free way to entertain your guests, as you can place them next to people they will enjoy spending time with, so the room can be filled with conversation and laughter.

Plan an Exit Strategy for Your Guests

Many happy couples often arrange transportation for their guests, so they can arrive home safely once the wedding reception has come to an end. For example, you could hire a shuttle service to take your guests home, which will provide them with greater freedom to relax and have a drink. It will also allow the newlyweds to enjoy the peace of mind that their loved ones will be safe once the special day has come to an end.

Keep the Toasts Short Yet Sweet

Unless the best man or the father of the bride moonlights as a stand-up comic, it is wise to keep all wedding toasts short but sweet. While it’s always nice to hear kind words from loved ones, you will want to avoid boring your guests. Limit the number of people who will make a toast, so everyone can continue to enjoy the reception party.
