Add the Fun Factor to Your Wedding
From the moment of our first phone call. Your planning the best wedding possible, Ideas to Add the Fun Factor to Your Wedding. I know it will be a fantastic wedding day, as your Celebrant can’t wait to enjoy it with your family and friends; I always arrive early, so I can help add some magic. What are the fun factors you can add to your day?
These are some of the creative ideas that can add more to your magical day. We all want you to have the best day possible.
We’ve all heard of couples who have secretly practised a carefully-choreographed first dance, and that’s great. I never knew my own son could dance.
We have all seen Strictly Come Dancing; what if you do away with a formal First Dance altogether? Why not get all your guests involved right from the start? What better way to do that than by hiring a professional ceilidh band or barn dance? This will take away some of the pressure on you and no struggle of getting everyone on the dance floor and a great way to start the evening and get everyone mixing and trying something new and fun.
The Good Old Photo Booth
The photo booth is ever-popular and with good reason. First is the DIY way you can download an app to a phone or tablet from the app store or Google, a tripod and cheap flash ring, and a few props, which can all be downloaded and shared via Google. Or Secondly, get a professional Photo Booth. There is something enjoyable about squeezing into a little booth to take silly photos with friends or even people you didn’t know before the wedding – especially if props are involved! The bonus of a photo booth is that most of them offer immediate printouts so your guests can leave with a little souvenir.
Garden Games Giant Jenga, chess or croquet can be a fun way for your guests to pass the time between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast – and even more fun as the evening wears on!
Jenga bricks can even be used as a guest book instead of/as well. Your guests can be invited to write messages on. The bricks for you to keep as a fun memory of the day every time you play!

Think of the Children! For a Fun Factor Wedding
If you’re inviting smaller guests (Children), it can be a long day, and consider hiring a team of professional entertainers to look after them during the day and the evening! It’s always great to include a ring bear or bridesmaids. It adds the Fun Factor to Your Wedding.
It’s always a beautiful moment when small flower girls/bridesmaids/page boys walk down the aisle, but once the ceremony is over, what then? It is standard for couples and their friends to have children; it can be a long (and, dare I say, boring! From their little perspective) day for them, which means that your guests can’t always focus on the essential parts of the day. I’ve often felt for the poor parent who has to take their crying child out of the ceremony and misses the all-important “I do” or who doesn’t get to enjoy the wedding breakfast because they are making sure that their children are ok.
Finding a company that specialises in childcare at weddings might be the answer! This can be a win-win if ever there was one!
Ceremony Bingo adds to the Fun Factor Wedding.
This works best if you are having a Celebrant-led ceremony, as your Celebrant will be in on the whole thing and can explain it to your guests before the ceremony begins. https://www.pinterest.com/littlehammergames/wedding-bingo/
You would have cards printed with particular words or phrases. At a certain point in the ceremony, the Celebrant can announce that this is where the bingo cards are to be used – usually during the part where they tell your unique story. In this scenario, the two of you could join in, too – though be prepared for cries of “Fix” if one of you wins! This can also work well during Speeches.
Hire a Mixologist (What’s that)
Cocktail bars are becoming increasingly popular with or without alcohol, and if you’ve seen a great mixologist at work. https://www.brides.com/bartenders-best-wedding-cocktail-recipes-6746838, you’ll know they can get a crowd cheering their fancy moves, and sometimes they’ll even use visually stunning techniques involving fire and smoke! It all adds the Fun Factor to Your Wedding
You could also ask them to create something entirely original for you, drawing on your personal story, or recreate a favourite drink with special significance.
Chocolate Fountain is Fun Factor
