Below you will find some tips on how to keep your wedding guests involved and having a good time:

  • Employ a DJ – If the crowd starts to look bored a great DJ will pump everyone back up with fun, interactive games and music.  Just as wedding decorations work to create the mood for the wedding, so does wedding music. Of course, hiring a great DJ takes work and effort.  Don’t worry, we have a list of preferred DJ’s that we’ve worked with in the past who will certainly keep your wedding hopping
  • For most people a wedding is synonymous with music and dancing, and every time they hear about a wedding the first thing that comes to mind is dancing and partying at the wedding reception. While this is true for most people it is important to consider during the wedding planning stage, that that some people are not dancers. Such guests require a different form of entertainment. One great idea in this regard is to have pictures of earlier events of the day incorporated into the wedding decorations at the reception. As people move around looking at different pictures of the bride and groom as well as other guests, they get a way to break the ice and start conversations with strangers.


Everyone wants their wedding to be the talk of the town for all the right reasons. Having a fun and entertaining wedding reception is bound to make a lasting impression.
