You just said “I do” and now you and your new husband are rushing off to go capture pictures. Since the ceremony just ended and your reception is not scheduled for another hour or 2 what are your guests supposed to do in the meantime? Here are a few tips on how to keep guests entertained.
1) After the ceremony you can have guests head over to the location of the reception. A great way to keep guests busy is to have them write good luck notes or happy thoughts to the bride and groom and then put them in a box. These notes would mean so much to the bride and groom.
2) Another idea is having cocktail hour. Chances are guests will be pretty hungry and thirsty and you do not want to make them wait until dinner. Guests will appreciate having little appetizers and drinks while they wait. It also gives the guests a chance to mingle with one another.
3) Another idea is to have a live band for your guests to listen and watch or a slideshow of the couples. This will give the guests a special look into the lives of the bride and groom and a glimpse of their journey together.
