Hi girls, we are having a 3pm ceremony followed by pictures and a meal. Have decided not to have a band or dj just background music as it is jus 30 very close friends n family and we thought that people wouldnt dance. We are having giant games and a magician as entertainment but would like ideas on anything else we could include?I dont want it to be flat and people be bored!thankyou 🙂

@princesslea: I don’t have any advice, but my wedding will be very similar so I’m looking to see what other people have to say…

We are having only immediate family 30 ppl. Half of those are children aged 18 down to 2. I decided to have a scavenger hunt to entertain guests and to help the families mingle. Things to find will range (we are having an outdoor wedding) from find a pink flower to find someone with a birthday in July. We are pairing up people to make it fair. Telling guests there is a prize for the competitive ones. Prizes are either dinner at the bride and grooms house or if a team if nieces or nephews win it will be a sleepover at our house.
What do you ladies think?

I love your magician idea. One of my BM’s brothers had a magician at his wedding and my Bridesmaid or Best Man said it was awesome. She said having him there was really fun and entertaining for the guests.

If you dance others probably will too-just a thought
I’d consider the fact that when entertainment stops if there isnt dinner or cake or something, there might be a lull
Consider the risk of people standing up and making toasts and proclamations, if you dont want this make it clear we have asked ___ to speak or something. Ive seen this happen and get out of control, large and small, families etc.
It sounds lovely though

Our wedding will be a little larger, but we’re also thinking about little fun amusements for our guests. Here is our working list (and you can find more details online)
1) wedding related “cootie catchers”
2) Bride and groom ad-libs
3) Photo scavenger hunt (i.e. capture a photo of: the Maid/Matron of Honor and Bride sharing a moment, the MOTG crying, the bride and groom sharing a quiet moment together, the flower girls playing together, etc)
4) Croquet (it’s a garden wedding)
I hope this helps!
