Wedding Reception Games and Activities to keep your guests entertained

Make your wedding day one your guests will never forget with our unique wedding entertainment ideas. 

Some newly-married couples might be looking for other ways to get the wedding party started. Plus they keep your guests entertained while you are having your photographs taken. 

If the idea of adding a couple of games to your big day sounds like fun, we’ve rounded up some of the best activities your guests will enjoy. These wedding activities work well in large, outdoor events with space for your guests to spread out, but they also work inside too. 

Vintage Giant Garden Games that will take your guests right back to their childhood.

Giant Jenga: Who doesn’t love this classic, block-stacking game? Let your guests take turns removing a block from the giant garden Jenga tower and then balance it on top, creating a taller and increasingly unstable structure. Which guest will be the one to knock the tower over?

Giant Snakes and Ladders: If your wedding venue has a nice big lawn then you could set up your own Giant Snakes and Ladders game. Put your guests at the heart of the game as they move up the ladders and down the snakes after rolling the dice.

Giant Connect 4: This big garden game where players connect four of the same coloured discs in a row to win is sure to keep your guests young and old entertained.

Croquet: Add this elegant lawn game to your wedding. Our package provides you with everything you need, including four English Ash mallets, Composite balls, six Steel club hoops with carrot, one hoop ‘smasher’ mallet with a rubber head, four corner flags, croquet clips, one Hardwood Centre peg and one Hoop Drill.

Giant Buzz Wire: This game requires a steady hand and nerves of steel. You can guarantee an afternoon of giggles as guests attempt to beat the bleep and guide the wand along through the course without touching the wire.

Crazy Golf: Get your wedding guests out on the lawn with our Nine Hole Crazy Golf hire. Guaranteed to put a smile on your guest’s faces, our crazy golf hire will add an exciting and unique element to your big day.

Archery: It might not sound like the most obvious option, but archery makes a great addition to a wedding reception.

Classic Sports Day: Bring some playful competition to your reception drinks by hosting a classic Sports Day. Think space hoppers, eggs and spoon races, Giant sack races, and a five Piece Obstacle course that’s perfect for young and old to get involved with. 

A wedding reception wouldn’t be complete without hiring a photo booth complete with a box of silly props. The magic mirror not only captures your photo but will also interact with your guests too. Photo booths provide your guests with a memento to take home with them too. 

For wedding entertainment with a difference, you could transform your venue into a vintage funfair.

Funfair Side Stalls: Guests can win prizes by playing Hook-A-Duck, trying their hand at Hoopla, or trying and winning a prize on a Coconut Shy. 

Carousels: Hiring a carousel would be a real statement piece for your wedding entertainment. Decorated in vintage-style artwork our carousels can accommodate 16 - 60 guests at a time. 

Ferris Wheel: Hiring a Ferris wheel would make a stunning focal point for your reception which allows guests to see your venue from high up in the air.

Funfair Food: Think Dougnuts, Candyfloss, ice cream

Live Entertainment

Caricaturists: These are an excellent and unique way to entertain your wedding guests, plus they will leave with a fantastic memento of your day. 

Magicians: Magic is a great way to entertain your wedding guests. Hire a magician to perform close-up card tricks and traditional magic illusions. 

Face painting and Body Art: Make your guests sparkle with our Henna Artists and Face Painter. Our artists have a wide range of colours and designs for your guests to pick from, so there is bound to be something for everyone.
