I think there may be a tendency to outdo each other just for the sake of doing so. Wedding guests are more than happy to eat, drink, make merry, dance and socialize.

I can’t magine going to a wedding where we all sat silently watching a molecular chef put on a demonstration. How to take away the energy from a great party!

@DeeVine1217:  Have you thought about doing the newylwed shoe game? We did that for our reception and that was a big hit! I’m so glad we did that! Look into it, fun for sure! 🙂

@julies1949:  I agree with you.  I saw one performance of a Michael Jackson impersonator on 4 weddings and it was so random and weird.  As a guest, I just want great music and flowing alcoholic beverages!

We’re having yard games for those people who don’t want to dance. We’re planning on corn hole, giant jenga, bocce, can jam, hula hoops, maybe horseshoes. If it rains then we’ll have to cancel those but for now that’s the plan

@DeeVine1217:  Hmm…so in that case I think the belly dancers would be out since it doesn’t really go with your theme.  What about some sort of musical performance?  Do you have any “local celebrities”?

@DeeVine1217:  Maybe instead of (or in addition to) a performance, you could hire a couple of dancers to give a salsa lesson? Then you could work some Latin music into the dance selections and help your guests enjoy the dancing portion of the evening even more.

We are having two caricaturists come and do guests’ pictures. Not necessarily a grand entertainment moment but for the guests who decide to do it, I’m sure they’ll enjoy it!

Something that makes your guests feel like participants rather than spectators is always best.
The B&G are the reason everyone came so something that involves the B&G is usually good.
The Shoe Game (with questions specific to the B&G) or Keys for The Groom involve the B&G and both entertain the guests.

A great book with hundreds of ideas…
