Wedding ideas 馃挕 after wedding breakfast

Katrina, 7 of January of 2024 at 18:33 Posted on Planning 0 10
Hiya all,
Just wanted some ideas of what to do after our Ceremony, reception drinks and then wedding breakfast. We won't be doing the traditional things such as first dance we will not be having a DJ or entertainment. However our playlist will be playing throughout our wedding.
We want to play a video of us letting people know how we get to together too.We want our guests to watch that. We was thinking pizza in the evening too.What can we do afterwards? Any ideas are welcome. Look forward to your replies thanks in advance.

    Usually the evening people are expecting more of a relaxed affair. If there are plenty of drinks to have and somewhere to have a little dance, you could have lots of games around - board games and larger games for people to play?
    You could do a group game/ activity depending on how many of you there are. The typical mr and Mrs shoe game?

    As sunny purple says you don't need to do anything so long as there is a space for people to have a little dance but I would recommend some sort of disco lighting which helps a lot.

    We want to play a video of us letting people know how we get to together too. We want our guests to watch that.

    Sounds great but perhaps have if on a loop somewhere as the way I am reading it sounds like you "expect" them to all sit and watch it at some point.

    You could look into hiring a mobile casino which I have seen people seem to enjoy, some print out the fake money with your faces on.

    Thanks for your response Smiley smile
    Good idea about being on a loop I think photos of us can be on a loop. I would want the guests to watch the short video of us. Plan the time in for it. We don't want to do the typical wedding things like 1st dance so thinking of alternatives. There is a big space to dance as well. We will be able to play a playlist of our songs 馃幍. No DJ for us I will look into the casino idea not thought of that. Maybe a quiz about us too.

    Although you are not having a DJ who comes with lights I would advise you look into getting some yourself, they don't have to be expensive ones. And either sell them afterwards or keep them for your own parties.

    I am having the same problem, we are having a small a road wedding (25 guests) and most of guests aren鈥檛 really dancers so feel we need something else. I鈥檓 lending towards games atm as I can鈥檛 think of anything else.


    Love the casino idea, would definitely worth looking into

    We've booked a mobile axe throwing company for after our ceremony. They're coming for 3 hours and plan on all the guests having a go for the first few hours and then doing a bit of a head to head/ competition with a small prize for the winner. Could also look at doing a little quiz or musical bingo or something.

    Sounds good Smiley smile not my sort of thing though. I was thinking a quiz to do with us two I want to do a video too. We have about 34 guests so not to far off from you. I want to have pizza in the evening Smiley smile was thinking of playing a movie 馃幀 why not? Lol its definitely different. The idea 馃挕 just came to me it's not very wedding vibes though is it?! Will have to do some research.

    Wedding vibes are whatever you make them because it's so personal to you. At the end of the day irs a celebration of your marriage which can be in the form of a movie, a quiz, a party whatever. As long as its what you want to do then I'm sure everyone will love it!

    Axe throwing --- brilliant, that's a new one on me. Similar kind of thing -- archery.
