Wedding Reception Activities

Better Beats Entertainment will make your First Dance, Father-Daughter Dance, Mother-Son Dance, and other requested dances a beautiful and meaningful experience. We also provide a unique and flawless spin on the Bouquet Toss, the Garter Ceremony, the Tossing of the Garter, and the Next Married tradition. 

However, we also have a variety of unique and fun activities to choose from provided below!

The Shoe Game

The idea is to find out how well our new bride and groom actually know each other. The DJ will ask a series of questions and both the bride and groom will answer simultaneously by holding up either a lady's shoe or a man's shoe. Two chairs will be placed in the middle of the dance floor back to back with the bride in one chair and the groom in the other chair. There is a long list of questions that you can choose from, or you can create your own! 

Living Guest Book

Once the food has been served and the guests are seated, prompt cards would be filled out by the guests providing their own advice to the new couple to help them in their married life. The advice can be practical, romantic, funny, or downright rude in a humorous manner. The cares would be placed into a folder and presented to the Bride and Groom later in the evening to the audience. This activity allows the focus to remain on the Bride and Groom! 

The Best Party Pack

Simply the best party pack is a 'party in a box' using props for the guests to choose from that could include coconut bras, leis and grass skirts, inflatable guitars, saxophones, and microphones, tambourines, maracas, and a selection of party hats, glittery boppers, and wants. These items would be kept secret from the guests until the time is right! This is a great hit that more Brides and Grooms are choosing to boost the excitement of the reception!
