Items you will need
Performers (comedian, band, magician, dancers)
Wedding ceremonies are heartfelt, touching and often quite serious. Follow an earnest ceremony with an exciting wedding reception to celebrate the occasion; it is the duty of the bride and groom to provide their guests with engaging entertainment, such as games, shows and performers. If your wedding is a Christian one, choose entertainment that is appropriate for the religious beliefs of your guests.
Hire a performer, such as a band, comedian, disc jockey, magician or dance troupe. Choose entertainers that perform appropriate content and avoid profanity, costumes that leave little to the imagination and dark humor. If you are hiring a band, opt for one that performs Christian music.
Rent, or purchase, a chocolate fountain. Chocolate fountains will appeal to guests with a sweet tooth, and are sure to be a hit with any children attending your reception. Guests will enjoy dipping different foods, such as chunks of pineapple and strawberries, into the chocolate.
Play a variety of light-hearted wedding reception games with your guests. Popular games that are appropriate for a Christian event include G-rated trivia regarding the bride and groom, musical chairs and dance competitions.
Stage a fireworks show that will awe guests of all ages. Employ a family friend to help it go off without a hitch or, if the wedding budget allows, hire a fireworks company.
Rent a photo booth for your wedding reception. People from all walks of life enjoy taking photographs that capture the fun and spontaneity of an event as special as a wedding. Guests can take the pictures, which print instantly, home with them.
If Christianity plays a very large role in your family, consider having a group prayer session during the reception.
