You will also have lots of cool food trucks available out there to select from as well. You just need to hire the best food truck that matches with the theme of your wedding and the preferences of your guests.
Have a giant Jenga
If you will have plenty of outdoor space at your wedding venue, and you think the weather will hold (!) why not hire a giant Jenga for your guests to play. It’s a great ice-breaker sure to appeal to the more competitive of your guests – and the kids! There are plenty of other outdoor game kits to choose from too – like Chess or Boules.
Hire a caricature artist
If you want your guests to leave with a personalised memento of your special day, why not hire a caricature artist. Just make sure you hire a good artist who can produce flattering pictures of your guests and you’ll hopefully see them queueing to be captured in ink.
Have a fireworks display
Ending your reception with a show-stopping firework display is another great idea – just make sure that you hire a company that adheres to all necessary health and safety regulations and you have checked with the council that you have permission to let fireworks off.
Get a magician
Many people love magicians and finding a great one who will perform sleight of hand and spend some time with your guests at their table is often hugely popular. This will provide some no-fuss reception entertainment whilst still allowing the rest of your guests to talk and mingle as they wish. You’re sure to find a magician in your local area.
