Fun things to do at your wedding

Posted: 9th Feb

Whether you’re planning an intimate wedding with family and close friends, or you’re going all out with a lavish celebration full of glitz and glamour, your big day should be tailored to you and your partner, and full of things you love. After all, who says your wedding needs to follow any kind of set format? It’s your day for a reason, so why not incorporate in some fun activities that both you and your guests will enjoy? From fun games to TikTok dances, here are some quirky things to do at your wedding that will ensure your day is a memorable one.


Giant inflatables

Bounce your way into married life and hire giant wedding inflatables for your guests to party on!   This is a fantastic choice for summer weddings and will appeal to children and adults alike, with limitless options including themed bouncy castles, slides and competitive inflatable games. For a less active option that’s equally as fun, giant versions of Jenga and Connect 4 are a great way to inject some fun into your big day and can be used both indoor and out so will be suited to a wide range of venues.

Scavenger Hunt

A wonderfully fun option for your guests to enjoy whilst the bridal party is getting their photographs taken is a wedding scavenger hunt, and this will keep kids entertained too! Test how well your guests know you and base the clues on yourself and your partner’s relationship. Alternatively, a photo scavenger hunt around the venue is a great way to get your guests snapping photos together that can be added to an album after the day for everyone to enjoy.

Learn a Tik Tok dance

A super fun way to add some jazz to your big day is by pulling it out the bag on the dance floor. We’ve all heard of couples doing the Dirty Dancing lift as part of their first dance, but why not give the trend a 2022 upgrade and take to TikTok for some inspiration? The dances are usually quite simple, so should be easy to learn, and social savvy guests might even be able to join in! Just be sure to get one of your guests to capture the routine on video and post it – who knows, you could be the next viral sensation!

Petting Zoo

From alpacas to ponies to baby goats, there are a variety of options when it comes to having animals at your wedding, so why not make them a bigger part of your day and have a petting zoo for your guests to enjoy? Perfect for animal lovers, there are plenty of ways you can enjoy the company of animals safely and responsibly on your wedding day, and we guarantee they make the cutest guests!  Caledonia Alpacas will bring their beautiful alpacas to your wedding and take care of them on the day, giving guests the chance to get up close and personal with these fascinating creatures.

Reception entertainment

Keep everyone entertained and get them chatting before the dancefloor opens with reception games like Prosecco pong, bride’s side vs groom’s side edition. This is a fantastic option for smaller weddings with less guests, or for larger weddings, why not hire a magician to circle the room and show off some card tricks? When it comes to keeping guests entertained, the options truly are endless. You could hire a selfie mirror or photobooth, and there’s even a company in Glasgow that you can hire for your wedding to bring along their Little Margarita Truck to add a splash of tropical fun to your big day.
