Dancing is the widely accepted form of entertainment at most wedding receptions. After all, who doesn’t like to dance? The surprising answer is a lot of people. It takes a special person to feel confident on the dance floor, and it’s important that you cater your event to every kind of guest. Not to mention, with wedding season among us, your guests are likely attending more receptions than just yours this time of year. You want your celebration to stand out among the rest.
When it comes to reception entertainment, there are so many fun and unique experiences you can offer, in place of or in addition to dancing, to make it super memorable for you and your guests. Here are some things to do at your wedding reception that our wedding venues Omaha experts thought of, that you probably haven’t.
Bring the winery to your wedding venue. A live wine tasting is the perfect way to combine drinking and entertainment. All you need is a bartender or “sommelier” to guide your guests through the experience. Not much of a winey? Opt for beer or another beverage of your choice, instead!
Much like dancing, this idea might not be fit for the introvert. However, even the more timid guests will love to pay witness to this activity! Karaoke is fun and super easy to implement at your wedding reception with the help of your live band or DJ.
Now here is one you definitely didn’t think of. Hosting a booth with a tarot card or palm reader at your wedding reception offers your guests an experience they might otherwise never have had. When the bouquet toss fails them, everyone is sure to stand in line for more insight into their future lives.
A live painter is sure to draw curiosity from your guests. Not only will the canvas be a source of entertainment, but you will get a gift that captures your wedding, beautifully. That way, you can put it on display in your home to remember your special night forever.
While area guidelines may limit when you can include fireworks at your wedding reception, they are a sure way to ‘wow’ your guests when done safely. Our wedding venues Omaha experts can give you more information on how to incorporate fireworks into your wedding reception.
