Want your guests to talk about your wedding for years to come? A fun DJ is always memorable, but you should surprise them with alternative entertainment too! Consider some of these creative ways to liven up your reception!

1. Photo Booth
A photo booth is a great way to entertain your guests during the reception. You can customize the photo setting to fit the style and theme of the day. Whether you choose a vintage photo booth or a Volkswagen van that has been converted, you will want to capture all the silly antics of your bridal party and guests. Photos, videos with green screens, and even flip books can be a lot of fun for your family and friends.

2. Late Night Snack Keep your guests fed and hydrated throughout a late-night party! A s’mores bar, cotton candy or churros will sweeten the night, but don’t underestimate how hungry your guests might be as they dance the night away. Burgers and fries or mini pizzas are great options too.

3. Tattoo Bar
This one is especially fun for any kids in attendance! Provide a variety of temporary tattoos for guests to pick out and play with. It will also serve as a conversation starter among your guests as they compare tattoos and where they chose to put it!

4. Bring in a Mixologist
A mixologist can add a fun twist to cocktail hour or the dance party. By whipping up some unique cocktails, guests can have fun talking about the drink options and trying each other’s drinks.

5. Bring in a Painter
A painter will bring beauty and anticipation to any wedding! The guests will get to watch a masterpiece in the making as they check in with the artist throughout the night to watch the progress. Plus, the bride and groom will get to take home an amazing piece of art that captures the essence of their day.
