6 Wedding Entertainment Ideas Your Guests Have Never Seen Before

Planning Tips

Want to really wow your guests at the reception? Think beyond the photo booth and entertain guests with something they've never seen before. Here are six out-of-the-box ideas.

Piñata (above): Sure, this may seem a little juvenile, but trust us—you and your guests will have a blast. Just be sure to stuff the piñata with more adult goodies, like lottery tickets and mini bottles of booze.

Dance Performance: Surprise guests with an after-dinner performance like this couple did—they hired a group of dancers to perform a chorus line to "New York, New York" at the stroke of midnight.

Jumbo-Size Games: Kids and adults alike will get a kick out of super-size versions of childhood games like Connect Four, tic tac toe, and Jenga.

Scavenger Hunt: Another idea would be to create a scavenger hunt for guests to work on during the reception — such a great way to help break the ice among guests who may not know each other.

Fire Dancers: If you want a major "wow" moment during the reception, hire fire dancers to put on a mesmerizing after-dinner performance.

Silent Disco: Never heard of a silent disco? Everyone wears headphones and listens to the same music, and has what appears to be a silent dance party. This could be a good solution if your venue has noise restrictions.
