Create a Theme
It is important that you create a theme for the wedding that matches your interest and fits in with the expectations of your guests, too. You might be a massive fan of the Avengers, but your parents and grandparents and your boss might not be able to relate to the theme. Creating a themed wedding around general interest, such as fairy tales, happiness, valuing each other, and support will help you engage with your guests and get them to stay involved with what is going on.
Plan Your Entertainment
It is also important that your guests don’t get bored. When choosing an event manager and entertainer, you will need to plan the activities based on the demographics of your guest list. Choose from different live music wedding entertainment ideas and discuss them with your guests. Kids need to be entertained, or they will be running wild. It might be a good idea to set up a play area for them where they can watch a movie or catch up with each other, without running your catering team mad.
Get Them Involved

The best weddings include the guests as co-creators of the event. You can ask your guests to come up with ideas on how to make the most out of the time spent together. You might want to set up a game for your guests, or a competition. You can have a quiz or a cake eating competition; anything that your guests will enjoy when they are not talking to each other or eating. After all, you want to focus on your perfect wedding and not run around trying to cheer everyone up.
Consider Everyone’s Taste and Needs
It might also be a good idea to list the guests based on physical and dietary needs, so you can cater for everyone. You might want to ask everyone to include their dietary requirements in their RSVP, so you can talk to the caterers and make sure that there is something for them to eat and there is more than one option. If you have friends or family members with limited mobility, you might want to seat them close to the door, so they don’t have to feel obliged to stay seated because they don’t want everyone else to move.
To make your wedding memorable for your guests, it is important that you plan your entertainment and theme and consider the needs of your friends and family members.
