How much time are you looking to fill?


-Dance Lessons

-Live Music


-Caracture artist

-Wishing tree

-Picture display

-Guest book scrapbooking page

EDIT TO ADD:  Sorry, I read your question wrong and was thinking this was for the gap between ceremony and reception.

Other ideas:

-Board Games

-Karaoke 😉

…but, honestly – I don’t think you really need anything ‘extra’.  If people want to take a break from the main room – maybe just some chairs, etc out there.  I wouldn’t plan an extra activity that would draw people away from the main room (even though I remember trying to figure this out during my own planning).

In thinking of all the weddings I’ve attended, I don’t think I’ve ever seen an additional activity – other than a lounge type of seating – where people can just get some air and mingle before they go back in….
