My guest list is really a lot more family and some friends. I worry that people aren’t going to have fun. I really wanted a photo booth but it wasnt available for my date. I was going to do a DIY one, but time wasn’t on my hands. What kind of things are y’all doing at your reception? Do the mad libs get used? I was thinking of message boards and having my photographer take pictures of my guests holding them. I also had props that I was going to put out. Not sure. I stress over the dumbest things lol.

It’s going to be ok…it’s a wedding reception, not a birthday party. You do not have to entertain people, they know how to enter a space, come together as a group and enjoy the gathering without a photo booth, mad libs or anything else. As long as the space is inviting, and the music playing at a comfortable level…it will all work out.

People have been having a great time socializing at weddings long before Blogs or Pinterest.
All those ideas you read about are extras and totally optional. Let go of this worry.

The most important part of your wedding day is that you get to marry the love of your life, share the day with the people nearest and dearest to you, then have a good party afterwards. I wouldn’t worry about a boring reception, as long as you have a decent DJ who can get people moving everything will be fine. And honestly I sometimes think Pinterest gives brides unrealistic expectations of what their actual wedding and not their Pinterest board for their wedding is going to be like and look like. 🙂

We were going to do a photo booth as well but around here they are really pricey so we are going to put two cameras on each table with a really cute I spy game. We are also having a candy bar and then when the dj starts playing the music we are going to put out glow sticks for everyone. We have mostly family friends, a few college, and coworkers I was worried about the same thing but i am over it now it will be fun no matter how you make it, its your day 🙂
