Fun, Engaging Wedding Reception Ideas


Bridal Party Scavenger Hunt

Building energy is one of the most important and critical elements to making a wedding reception that goes from average to amazing, which is why you need a fun reception games to engage guests! No one wants a boring wedding reception.

Chances are your wedding guests will be with you from early in the day with your wedding ceremony, until post dinner which often means 4-6 hours of down time between the ceremony, cocktails, dinner, pictures and more. Your guests need to feel engaged and part of your wedding celebration. The easiest way to do this is through a transitional activity between the dinner and the dance. Guests won’t just get up and dance, the energy needs to rise, your DJ needs to build some energy through engaging the guests in a subtle non threatening way.

One of our most popular and most requested transitional activities is the “Wedding Party Scavenger Hunt.” It takes no more than 5-10 minutes and is generally done following dinner right before the first dance. It’s a great activity that involves both your bridal party and all of your guests in attendance at your wedding celebration.

Here’s how it works:

Following dinner, before the first dance, your DJ will ask all of the bridal party members to make their way out to the dance floor and bring a chair. All of the bridal party members sit in the chairs facing the guests, and the DJ will call out an item one by one that the bridal party needs to bring back, through several rounds, the last bridal party member returning each time, is eliminated. The best part of this activity is that it involves all of the wedding guests, and gets them involved in the fun. Check out our online reviews and testimonials, it is literally one of the most memorable parts of many receptions we have done, and can be done in a short amount of time, leaving your guests in a fun laughing mood before they hit the dance floor.
