The photo idea sounds great, kind of like a photo booth, which I love at weddings. Will there be dancing? Even very formal weddings usually have dancing, and that’s always fun.

Photobooths are always fun (and can double as favors).  Another fun idea is a caricature artist.  If people smoke, a cigar roller is also something fun and interesting.   I’m trying to think of more but I’m having a mental block..I’ll update if I think of more!

I’m having a pretty formal wedding with no “activities” aside from a candy bar, but we hired a very well-known highly recommended band that are supposed to be wonderful. So we don’t really need anything else because they will take care of everything! The band was expensive, but a DJ + photo booth or something would have been the same price anyway.

First of all, fab venue!

I thought photobooths were way overdone . . . until my best friend had one at her wedding.  It was a blast.

But since that’s already been mentioned, I definitely see space at your venue for at least one of the following:

Cigar rolling

Casino table (or 2)

I know what you mean about non-dancers . . . sometimes people who don’t dance eat dinner and then split, so it’s nice to have an alternative activity to keep them around!
