I don’t think it’s too much.  It sounds fun!  How many people have you invited?

We are having a DJ, photo booth, and candy buffet, not to mention fewer guests, so no–I don’t think it would be too much. It sounds like fun!

If you’re worried, though, you could have the guitar setting out before the ceremony so people can sign then, or during cocktail hour.

That sounds good!  I was thinking if you had a smaller wedding, that might be a lot going on, but for that many people…YES!  It also might actually HELP the dance floor since those other activities will get people out of their seats.

I’d love to go to a wedding that had that much going on. Not everyone likes to dance, so at least there are more options. People who want to dance will do so no matter what.

I’m was going to be the party pooper and say that it does seem like a lot, but with that many guests, I think you’ll be find. The artist sounds SO COOL! The guestbook will take a whopping two seconds, so just put that out at cocktail hour.

Yeah, we’re having alot of stuff too.

Photobooth, open bar, dj/dancing, outdoor seating area, cigar bar, candy buffet.

Maybe it’s too much, but I don’t think everyone will do everything, some people don’t dance.. some don’t smoke cigars, some won’t drink.

I think those are awesome ideas! The charicature artist’s speed portraits are a unique favor. Anyone would have so much fun at your wedding 🙂

Nah with that many guests you’re going to be fine. The last wedding I went to, I was too busy chatting to do the photobooth (plus it was DIY and in a weird spot, our group didn’t really do it). The wedding before that, I was dancing the night away and we did the photobooth a few times (different people), but for that wedding I forgot to sign the guest book (plus I’m not good at that). 

My bottom line- people will find the time to do what they want to do.

@Bridebee13:  it sounds like a lot of fun!  I will say the photobooth we had was a HUGE HIT; however….people were hanging out there and by the bar for a good portion of the evening.  My one bridezilla moment was getting a little upset that more people weren’t dancing.  I asked DH to round up his friends, I grabbed mine, and the DJ put on some good music and the dance floor did finallly fill up the way I wanted it to.

The photo booth alone with attract a cRowd.  we barely had anyone dancing. I’m glad they were having fun but I would have nixed the booth if I knew.

Not too much! It’ll be fine!

As long as YOU are dancing, people will be on the dance floor!
