Wedding preparations are not just about the dress, flowers, and food. Great Wedding Guest Entertainment should be part of planning your unforgettable day.

After all, being surrounded by loved ones and having them witness your commitment to each other is one of the main reasons for having your wedding in the first place! Providing wedding guest entertainment after the ceremony is a great way to express your gratitude and include them in your celebrations.

Choosing the right wedding guest entertainment will also help break the ice and boost connections, perhaps even turning strangers into friends on the day!


It is becoming increasingly popular to set up group activities and large format games at wedding receptions. Imagine Giant Jenga, Noughts and Crosses, Quoits, and Dominoes – simple games that invoke feelings of nostalgia and inspire joy.

Ballara Receptions includes these games in the all-inclusive, but the games combo can be added to any other customisable wedding package. For more information, check out our recent blog on Wedding Lawn Games.


Music and dancing

Get people out on the floor with music that begs to be danced to. Your choice of DJ or band is an integral part of your wedding guest entertainment and will set the tone for the entire reception. Check out playlists and all your options before making the final decision, with consideration for your guests’ preferences.

Not sure who to pick for your big day? Ballara Receptions can help with some amazing contacts for wedding music, DJs, and live bands.

Wedding Guest Entertainment

The perfect emcee

Whether your DJ or bandleader doubles as your emcee, or you have a different person in mind for the job, the flow of your day and guest engagement is heavily influenced by this key role. Do you want someone to fill the room with laughs with their comedic stylings, or having guests’ hearts swelling with love and happiness? A great emcee can take everyone on a fun ride that will stick in the memory banks for years to come.


Photo booth fun

Who doesn’t love a photo booth stocked with a plethora of props? This has become a staple for wedding guest entertainment in recent years, giving guests a chance to let down their hair… or bundle it up into a fancy hat!
