You can get very creative with adding yard games to your reception activities. This is such a fun way for guests of all ages to engage in friendly competition! Check out etsy for some custom made cornhole boards, giant Jenga, Connect Four and more!


Who can resist a photobooth? You can get super creative with the props and backdrops to correlate with your wedding theme and decor. Your guests will have a blast making silly faces and creating memories. This is also a great way to incorporate special favors for your guests.

Fireworks Display

Want to really wow your guests? Go for a fantastic firework display to celebrate your big day! You can incorporate fireworks on a smaller scale with sparklers or firework towers lining your exit. Either way, you're sure to end the day with a bang!


Caricature artists add an extra element of fun to any occasion! This is such a unique and creative way for your guests to enjoy themselves and also take home the lasting memory of your big day!
