Now, your wedding should, of course, be all about love, super romantic, and so on, but in this day and age, a wedding is about more than the declaration of love. It’s about the party. While your friends and family will be happy to see you two tie the knot (of course), let’s not forget that they’ll have given up their time, and may have travelled a long way, to join you. So the least you can do is make it worth their while, and that means: fun, fun, fun! Below, we take a look at a few tried and tested ways you can ensure everyone’s entertained and having fun during your wedding party.
Make It Multi-Day
It’s becoming more and more popular to spread a wedding over multiple days, rather than to just have one big day. There are multiple advantages to this — first, if people are travelling a fair distance to be with you, you’ll be giving them more than just a few hours of activities. The other reason is that it can contribute massively to the fun factor! It gives guests who don’t know each other the chance to meet and find their common ground. By the time the wedding comes around, the guests will be way beyond the “what do you do? How do you know the bride/groom?” stage and ready to have fun.
There will be a lot of fun throughout the entire wedding, but it’ll all climax during the actual party, where people will be dancing, feeling good, and spreading the happy energy around. But of course, a party won’t just happen: you need to make it happen! To get things started, take a look at hiring a band from AliveNetwork.com — there’s nothing like live music to get people in the mood to party. Once the band has finished, the party reins should be in the hands of a DJ who knows how to keep people on the dance floor. Make sure you’re interviewing any DJ before you hire them to establish their musical preferences and openness to requests.
People are so ready to have fun at a wedding, but sometimes it can be a little difficult. For example, if you’re constantly thinking about how you’re going to get home and other annoying logistical matters, then you won’t be able to lose yourself in reckless abandon. As such, one of the best things you can do to bring the fun is to make sure the logistical matters have all been handled. A bus to take people back into town, a communal babysitter for the little ones, and other thoughtful touches will all keep the party in full swing.
Finally, take a look at those additional touches that’ll add another dose of fun. For example, what about setting up a photo booth? Or supplying inflatable instruments and fancy dress accessories for the dance floor? They’ll all up the fun factor another few degrees — and you’ll have an awesome wedding day.
