@szaerpoor: you should definetely have a DJ if you’re not having an open bar 🙂 it’s sad that people think that way but if there’s no bar you should make sure there will be someone encouraging guests to dance.. also photobooths are really fun, went to a wedding this summer and I loved their photo booth, everyone had lots of fun taking pictures in it.

Good luck!

I’ve been thinging about things to because I have some non-alcohol drinkers coming to my wedding. Here’s some of my ideas…

photobooth, silhouette artist, candy/ice cream bar, belly dancers

Generally, if people don’t dance then they mingle. Most guests don’t really care that much for other types of entertainment.

@Ember78 I disagree. It depends on the crowd. Everyone I know loves belly dancers and photobooths. They’re pretty common at our parties/weddings.

Why dont you try hiring a table to table magician.

If you choose the right one, your wedding can be the talk of town

At our wedding (last night!), we had a bar, but the other aspects that I think people really had fun with were the DJ (he did a good job gauging the crowd and playing songs that people got really into) and the photobooth.  The booth was a HIT – there were people in there goofing off all night, right up until the photographers had to pack it up to leave.

We’re going to have some music, but also hiring a magician and hopefully a tarot card/palm reader.  That may not work for some crowds, but I grew up in a family that loves that sort of stuff and my fiance’s family is very laid back. I went to a wedding with a photobooth and it was great!!

You could also do a photo scavenger hunt–put disposable cameras on each table and a list of things to take pictures of like “someone from Ohio [or whatever state most out of towners are from]” “a piece of cake” “someone dancing their feet off!” — this gets people up and moving around and forces the picture taker to interact with the taken.
