Yard games

Let’s not overlook a simple yet super fun addition to any party! Instead of guests feeling stuck at their table, they can have the opportunity to play cornhole, horseshoes, rope toss, giant Jenga, connect four, and other yard games. Everyone loves the opportunity to play — and a little friendly competition never hurt!  What’s more fun than a classic backyard party experience?

Team mascots

Just think about how stoked your guests would be if everyone’s favorite team mascot walked in to join the party; too fun, right? Dancing and snapping photos with your fave mascot will definitely stick with your guests for years to come!

Choreographed dances

Hear us out: flash mob. Nothing like shaking up your guests’ expectations like surprising them with entertainment filled with familiar faces! This will take a little more time and planning but is so worth the added pizzaz on your big day. It’s also a very fun bonding moment for you and your wedding party!

A nod to shared passions

Think outside of the box. What are you and your future spouse passionate about? How can you incorporate that into your wedding day? The options are endless for your big day’s itinerary, so make it your own! If you love board games or murder mysteries, consider hosting a murder mystery game before dinner is served (a la The Office). Remember, it’s YOUR day!

Fireworks

If your venue permits, fireworks are always an exciting addition that adds a romantic flare to your wedding day. Enjoy the lights and shimmers in the sky before your big sendoff. Talk about going off with a bang!

There’s no need to feel confined to the typical wedding itinerary! The options are truly endless for your big day, so get creative and don’t hold back. Allow yourself the opportunity to thoroughly enjoy your day and your guests!
