Lawn games are most popular during the cocktail hour, giving guests something to do while they mingle and wait. But if you’re looking for an alternative to dancing during your reception, look no further for some great entertainment! Everyone loves favorite games like Giant Connect 4, Giant Jenga, and Cornhole.

Photo Booths are here to stay, because wedding guests love them. Dressing up and playing with props while posing for silly photos is always a hit at a wedding reception. Best of all, you get to see the evidence of all the fun later!

Bounce Houses aren’t just for kids anymore! You can rent a wedding-ready white bounce house and use it for some unique photo opps with your wedding party, or just to have some fun in at your reception.

Strolling magic is a trending form of entertainment. Rather than performing a show with seated guests, the magician circulates among guests, performing up-close-and-personal magic tricks.

Add a fun food vendor. Why settle for just a slice of wedding cake? Go for an ice cream cart or other mobile food vendor and turn dessert into a whole Thing.
