The best activities for wedding guests

Do you want to give your guests a wonderful experience during your wedding and avoid embarrassing wedding games? There are a few ways you can keep your guests busy so that they can enjoy the day to the fullest and are well entertained while you are taking photos with the photographer or receiving congratulations. Here are our best ideas.

This is how your guests get to know each other better

Especially at larger weddings, where not all the guests know each other yet and friends and family are brought together for the first time, it is a good idea to give the guests a little information. The so-called Who's Who booklet is a good way to do this. All the guests are listed in the booklet, like in a poetry album, so that you know who is connected to the bride and groom and how.

You can put ideas for creative conversation topics on a small card on the table for your guests.

If you want to get good and entertaining conversations going at the tables, you can prepare a small card for each table with potential topics of conversation . Think of questions like "How do you know the bride or groom?", "Where are you coming from just for the wedding?" or "Do you know when the wedding cake will be cut?" To lighten the mood, you can ask a few tongue-in-cheek questions.

Another idea that will surely provide plenty of ice breakers is for guests to bring their own wedding photos and look at each other. You can also create a small photo wall with them and/or spruce up your seating plans with them. However, this requires the participation of your guests.

This is how you provide your guests with cultural and culinary enjoyment

The classic activity and definitely not to be overlooked as an option are delicious snacks with a small champagne reception or coffee and cake . This way, the crowd of guests is not only kept busy, but also properly fed. A deluxe option is definitely the candy bar . Not only children, but also adults with a sweet tooth love it. You can easily prepare a small candy corner yourself with a few jars that you have lovingly labeled.

A candy bar is something for big and small sweet tooths!

During the couple photo shoot, you can also organize a nice city tour, a carriage ride or a river cruise for your guests. Make sure that the cultural activity is something for all guests.

Music is one of the essential tools for creating a good atmosphere at a wedding. Try to choose a good music selection or hire a suitable DJ so that your guests can't stay on their feet and start dancing .

How to let your guests get creative

It's always a good idea to give guests a few creative tasks to keep them busy. You've probably got yourself a nice guest book and would like them to immortalize themselves in it . Have pens, stickers, washi tape, etc. ready to get your guests excited about crafting. But don't stress if one or two of them prefer to write a traditional message to you as the bride and groom. You can also provide an instant camera to fill out the guest book so that the best snapshots can be included in your book straight away.

Speaking of photos: A photo booth station is always nice, where guests can dress up and take a few funny snapshots. Disposable cameras always have their charm too, as you never know what kind of pictures you'll get and how good they will be. As with the conversation topics, you can add a small list of photography tasks to the disposable cameras for the guests to keep themselves busy with.

The bride and groom receive 52 postcards, which are distributed to the guests, over the course of a year.

Another cute idea that requires little effort is to provide 52 blank, stamped postcards . Each guest (or each family) takes one postcard. And so, as a bride and groom, you will receive a little greeting from your wedding guests every week throughout the year . And even if one or two guests forget to write, you will still be happy about the cards that flutter in.
