girls (and boys) just wanna have fun


How to guarantee a FUN wedding day

Pretty much every single couple wants their wedding to be FUN.  Nobody wants a boring party and yawning guests.

First of all, I’d be lying if I told you that you can do something to “make” your guests have fun.  You can’t.  If your guests have their hearts set on pouting in the corner, there’s nothing you can do to stop them.

But you can guarantee that YOU have a fun time.  And if you take these actions, it all but guarantees that your fun loving guests will join you.

1) Set an example.

If you want your wedding to be fun, YOU have to have fun.  Your guests will be looking to you for guidance because you are the stars of the show.  If you aren’t having a good time, chances are they won’t, either.

On the other hand, if you’re having the time of your life, your guests will be compelled to join you.  If you want your guests on the dance floor, get on the dance floor!  Your guests will be drawn to you like moths to a light bulb.

Making sure you have fun at your own wedding is the number one way to guarantee a killer party.

2) Create a comfortable environment.

What do I mean by a “comfortable” environment?  It’s making sure that your guests know what to do, when to do it, and they have everything they need to relax and enjoy the process.

This is where booking the right venue and hiring the right vendors becomes critically important.

Your venue sets the tone for the wedding; it can be formal and elegant or laid back and relaxed.  Your wedding vendor team interacts with your guests and guides them through the day.

Guests feel comfortable when they know what’s going on and what’s expected of them.  Make sure your team guides the flow of events so that everyone knows where to go and what to do.  This sets the stage for a good time.

3) Stay in the room.

This one sounds obvious, right?  Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the bride or groom disappear from their own wedding.

When the bride or groom leaves the wedding celebration, it’s like the air gets sucked out of the room.  People get lost and wander around like lost puppies.

If you want your party to be fun, STAY IN THE MIX.

4) Get your photos done early.

Work with your photographer to plan your formal portraits so that you can join your guests for as much of your reception as possible.

If you leave your reception for a photo session, the party dies without you.  It’s your wedding and they need you to have fun. Do yourself a favour and allow plenty of time for a leisurely photo session before the reception.

5) Share your story with your guests.

Your guests will have the most fun when they are engaged and involved in your wedding.  The best way to engage them is by sharing your love story and the interests, hobbies and quirks that make you who you are.

There are lots of ways to do this.  Personalise your vows.  Have your entertainer tell your love story to your guests.  Take the microphone and tell them yourself.  Share your story in your order of service or on a card at each table. How about a video? or a song?

Find a way to share your story that fits you.  It will have a huge impact on how much fun your guests have at your wedding.
