Here’s some out-of-the-box ideas.
Why not get your guests involved and provide some of the night’s entertainment? There’s a lot of people out there that love to show off and perform karaoke. This is a great way have fun and bring the crowd some laughter. You might even find the next Adele.
Everyone Likes Bubbles
How about some bubbles for the wedding guests? We have a feeling some of the adults might even get into this basket too! This could be used at the reception for a stress reliever or just for fun.
Guest Scavenger Hunt
Get creative and plan a fun photo or video scavenger hunt. Think of items that make the crowd roar. Here’s a couple ideas. Break your guests into four teams and give them a list of 10 to twelve items to bring back to the bride and groom. Bring back someone that is cuter that you. Or maybe bring back two empty wine bottles. Or even one of the bridesmaid’s awesome slippers. So, the quicker you get down the list the chances your group has to win.

Ice Breaker Games
Icebreakers are the perfect game for guests to get to know each other! And think of how it could help take introductions off your list of things to do. Think of ideas that make your guests go to everyone around the table and find interesting facts about each other.
Walk Down Memory Lane
Make the guest feel like integral parts of the day by incorporating them into the décor — in a gallery of meaningful photos. "We do something we like to call 'memory lane,'" says Northern California event planner Sasha Souza. "We hang pictures of the bride and groom with friends and family along the walk from the ceremony to the reception. It's a fun cocktail party conversation starter." As guests take a leisurely stroll and find pictures of themselves with you, they can reminisce and socialize.
And let’s not forget something as fun as caricatures! No one is too old for caricatures. This takes a little time, but will entertain several of your guests. Lots of fun if you plan ahead.
