The quality of entertainment is what will determine whether your guests have a wonderful time, enjoy themselves and continue to party at your reception, or get bored, become restless and leave early. The key factor is how much they feel included in your marriage celebration. When your friends and family are given repeated fun opportunities to participate in celebrating the love shared by you and your fiance—the very reason for the reception—your special day will be experienced as a resounding success!

There are numerous ways to provide the grounds for everyone to share in the fun and feel like they're a part of your reception. How we accomplish this is through your input and in accordance with your tastes. From an entertaining cocktail hour leading up to the full-room impact of a well-staged grand entrance, to a memorable and romantic last dance culminating with an exciting send-off, each and every segment of your wedding reception can be laced with fun and geared towards continual enjoyment and maximum participation.

The following is a compilation of activities and approaches that can be adapted to suit your individuality and keep your friends and family entertained.
