Wed­dings can be all fun and games too

Mackay and Whitsundays Wedding Guide - - Contents -

BETWEEN the cer­e­mony and the reception, the first course and the sec­ond course, af­ter dessert. No mat­ter what time of the wed­ding you want to make sure guests are en­ter­tained.

Mu­sic is one of the best forms of en­ter­tain­ment.

Live bands, wed­ding singers, DJS, juke­boxes or play lists, there are many mu­sic op­tions avail­able at wed­dings.

Mu­sic is gen­er­ally used to cre­ate a mood. Songs such aswag­ner’s Bri­dal Cho­rus and Men­delssohn’s wed­ding March re­main favourites, as does Pachel­bel’s Canon in D.

Cou­ples gen­er­ally pick a happy, up­beat song for the re­ces­sional, when they leave the cer­e­mony venue.

Here are some other en­ter­tain­ment ideas: Ta­ble games: From games such as Mad Libs, which al­low guests to bond with each other, to guess who of wed­ding guests and other board games, there are many dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties guests can take part in at their ta­ble.

One idea could be to have a ta­ble book­let which the ta­ble works to­gether to fill out with ques­tions in it such aswhat should we name our first child?, What should we do on date night?, etc.

Yard games: If you are hav­ing an out­door cer­e­mony or reception, out­door games could be the way to go.

You could play ring toss, Jenga, or over­sized board games.

Tra­di­tional child­hood games such as tag or hide and seek could also work a treat with the adults.

Group games: Games such as Sing Star or Gui­tar Hero could also be a good way for guests to in­ter­act and break the ice.
