Unique Wedding Ideas for Reception Entertainment

When it comes to wedding reception entertainment, there are probably a lot of fun and wacky things that may come to mind but of course, you have to consider what is doable and feasible and what is not excessive when it comes to your budget as well.

For unique entertainment ideas for your wedding, here are some suggestions:

  • Photobooth (photo by J.G. Park (Flickr))

    Photobooths – of course, they can add fun and sparkle to your wedding reception and even if the reception starts a bit late, your guests won’t be bored waiting for the newlyweds.

  • Photo guestbooks – instead of having your guests sign in your guest books, they can have their photos taken instantly and have their messages and wishes written in your photobook.
  • Video kiosks – more advanced than photobooths, you can also have videos taken with your guests saying their message of best wishes and congratulations. Isn’t that a good keepsake than the usual guest list?
  • Hire a caricature artist – have your guests sketched by a good caricature artist during the reception. This can be added entertainment for the event and one of your unique wedding ideas for reception fun.

Your logo and your font convey just as much information about your company as the actual verbiage that you use on such pieces so it’s important to analyze just exactly what your font is “saying” about you and your product or services.
