How To Make Your Wedding More Fun For The Guests

All being well, the people that you have invited to your wedding will enjoy themselves plenty throughout the day. Of course, it is your day, but many couples we talk to, tell us that they want their guests to look back on it and remember the great time they had. Some want them to remember the party, some the ceremony – and most want them to leave telling everyone that it was the best day ever! Here we are going to take you through some of the best and easiest ways to make your wedding more fun for your guests, to ensure it is a day that nobody ever forgets and which is always seen as a truly amazing experience for all.


How To Make Your Wedding More Fun For The Guests

Be Creative With The Entertainment

The entertainment is of course for everybody in attendance, so the more enjoyable you can make it, the better off you will be and the more enjoyable the whole event is going to be. You need to make sure that you are as creative as possible with the entertainment, and that you are providing some kind of show that people can either get involved with in an interactive sense or which is going to be something they will never forget.


There are really no limits on what you can do here, but you might for instance consider going all-out on some Vegas style performers, having a magic show performed, or even bringing in a psychic to read some tarot cards for your guests. The more interactive, the better, and this is something that you can be sure of as a general rule. With good entertainment comes happy and fulfilled guests.


Get Some Good Music Playing

In the evening, along with whatever entertainment you might have chosen, you also need to make sure that you can find some decent music to be played. There are a few obvious routes you can go down here. You can either hire a DJ to play some rocking tunes for everyone to dance to, or you can opt for a live band. There are pros and cons to each of these, of course, but bear in mind that you need to find some way to get people up and dancing, otherwise the tail end of the wedding day could be less impactful and a lot less fun for all involved.


As long as there is some good music, there is no reason to worry about people having a good time on your wedding day. Of course, you can’t cater for all tastes, but you can ensure that you are at least providing a good variety of music, so that there is a good chance that there will be a good mix of music for everybody, and something for everyone at least. This is a really important consideration in planning your wedding day.

Provide Great Favours

One of the areas where a lot of couples like to get a little creative is with the favours that you are offering to people. If you don’t already know what you are doing for these, it is definitely something that you need to think about, and it’s likely that you are going to want to do whatever you can to make them as original and enticing as possible. If you have managed to think of something that people will genuinely love to receive through the favours, then that is the kind of thing that can really make a wedding a lot more memorable.


If you do it right, this can really land very well with people. Maybe you want to provide some unique cool gifts to each person based on that individual, for instance. Or maybe you are thinking about creating something by hand which people can get a lot of fun and joy out of. Sometimes it is best if the favours are interactive in some way, as this can provide extra entertainment for the day itself. It’s all up to you, but do make sure that you are thinking about it long and hard.

Feed Them Well

One of the most enjoyable parts of the whole day for your guests is going to be the food, so you need to make sure that you are feeding them as well as you possibly can. The good news here is that it is also one of the more enjoyable aspects for you too, as you get to try out different chefs and menus when you are planning for a wedding, and that means that you are going to have a great time yourself long before the big day. But it is important that you are choosing well, so that your guests are likely to be happy with the choice.


It’s about much more than just the quality of the meals, too. It’s also about the quantity, and you don’t want to leave anyone hungry – or not give them enough to soak up the champagne! That’s why most weddings these days have a meal but also an evening buffet or something similar too. It’s up to you exactly how to do this, of course, but you should make sure that you are providing plenty of food in any case. If you do, your guests will be a lot happier.


Theme It

Your wedding is always going to have some theme or other, but a theme that actually involves the guests is going to be a lot more fun and more memorable, and something that you are really going to want to look into if you are keen to make the day as positive for them as possible. You could treat it like a fancy dress party, for instance, and ensure that you send out invitations that make the theme as clear as day. Or you could just hint at it and see how people pick up on it. You might find that there are some interesting outfits if you do it this way!
For a unique and unconventional twist, consider the “Gothic Romance” theme and encourage your guests to embrace gothic clothing for your wedding. Imagine a sea of elegant black lace, dark velvet, and mysterious accessories creating an atmosphere of enchanting allure. Either way, this is a good way to involve the guests more, and that will always lead to them having a lot more fun on your big day.

Provide Amazing Rooms

If it is the kind of wedding where a good number of people are going to be staying at the venue itself, then the quality of the accommodation is going to make all the difference in the world. If you can provide some amazing rooms that people will really enjoy and get on board with, you might be amazed what a difference that really can make to the guests’ overall experience of the wedding day itself.


Of course, it’s great if those rooms are all splendour and luxury, but that is not the only way to approach it. You can also go chic or something of that kind. It’s all about making sure that everyone has the best possible chance of really having fun. If you manage to achieve that with the rooms you choose, then you are going to find that people tend to respond to it very well indeed.


Take Lots Of Photographs

There is nothing quite like taking lots of photographs to ensure that everyone feels as though they are having a great time. You will of course be hiring a professional wedding photographer to do that, but you might also want to think about taking lots yourself, and encouraging your guests to do the same. Not only will that make everyone feel more into it, it will also mean you can spice up the wedding album with some candid shots taken by the people you love. That is something that will make your own memories of the day much sweeter too.


Choose A Unique Venue

The venue itself is probably the first decision you will make in all of this, and it is something that can have a dramatic effect on whether or not people are having as much fun as possible on your wedding day. If it is a unique venue which people have not really seen the likes of before, then you might find that it really does help to make it a lot more fun and entertaining for people, especially if there is something quirky or odd about it. Be sure to take this into consideration as you choose your venue.


Make It Yours


Ultimately, it all boils down to this one thing: make the wedding day yours, in whatever way you possibly can. If you are keen to try and make your wedding a lot more enjoyable for everyone, it means that you need to make sure it is true to you, and not anyone else. Overall, this is what will lead to your guests enjoying it a lot more, and you’ll find that this is really the most important way to make this happen. If nothing else, you will be happy with the day.
