- Wedding: June 2012 - Hollins House at Pasatiempo, Santa Cruz CA
Hey all 🙂
I’ve got a dilemma. Our wedding will be at least 65% older family members including parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, and cousins with kids. We’re probably only going to have about 30 close “young and fun” friends. I would really like our wedding to be fun for all ages, but I’m not sure what to do to make it fun! Also, we most likely will have an outdoor venue…so not sure how photobooth would work out.
Option 1: Photobooth. I think this would be really fun but my fiance thinks it will only be fun if the people are fun…and the kids are mostly under 6 and won’t be able to enoy it much and the older adults…well…who knows if they will even go take a pic let alone act goofy.
Option 2: Games and crafts for the kids. Dancing for the adults. So what if the oldies don’t dance. Let the young’ins dance!
Option 3: other ideas?

adults are fun too, no props required?

You know what… Man I wish I pictures of my grandma at my cousins wedding! She is nearly 90 and was boogying down to Lady Gaga! I think she would have had so much fun with a photobooth! I think sometimes people can surprise you. 🙂

People of all ages usually have a good time at weddings. Make sure your music has a lot of crowd pleasers that get everyone from 18-80 on the dance floor. It’s always good to have something to entertain kids, although I’ve noticed that kida and little girls especially run around the dance floor if a lot of people are danding.

We had a photobooth at our wedding and EVERYONE aged 3 to 93 enjoyed it!

We are having lawn games like cornhole and ladder golf. And we are supplying the music via ipod so we’re going to be playing really dance-y, fun music. Hopefully that will help, but we’re in the same boat as you guys in terms of having big families. And maybe PP are right and your families will surprise you!
