Karaoke is SO MUCH FUN if done right! I’ve been to 2 weddings that did it and it worked out great. If you’re not having alcohol though, you may have a problem getting people up to do it (not sure if that applies or not).

Photobooths are always fun! You could also do some interactive food stuff, like a candy bar, toppings bar for cupcakes/ice cream/mashed potatoes/etc. Or a guest book that’s a little more comrehensive than signing names.

And there are always games you could play during the reception! Google it, I came across a wedding book once that had a lot of suggestions but I don’t remember any exact ones, sorry.

@dragonfairyz:  How about having a video guest book?  Enlist a close friend with a video camera and have them poll guests for the zaniest marriage advice.  If you get the right person to start it it can be a real hoot with everyone competing and the advice getting wilder by the minute.  I attended a bridal shower where this was done and we laughed til we cried.  See no reason it wouldn’t work for a wedding reception.

Hope it helps! Best wishes!

If you have an outdoor option, lawn games are fun. My cousin had horseshoes, bocce ball, and I believe croquet. She had a photobooth as well as a dessert table. Hardly anyone danced until way after dark despite music playing the whole time.

You could get a photo booth. They are really cool and it gives the guests something to do.  Some photographers do them.

Board games at a wedding seriously?  Why??

I agree with @Knubbsy-Wubbsy:. We had an outdoor wedding and had bocce, wiffle ball, football, frisbee. That kept people entertained till dark, when they started dancing.

If it’s indoors you could take up some floor space and do life sized checkers or tic tac toe

Charades in teams.  Table 1 vs. Table 2 for example.

Depending on the weather and venue, you could set up outdoor games like boche and badminton. If the weather is bad, you could probably have ping pong inside. Board games are sure to be a hit…think back to what you liked to play as a kid and that’s probably what your guests would enjoy most.
