I would really like to know what you guys would be putting together as entettsinment for your guests. We were looking at photo booths, dance groups. Could use some ideas on what you guys are putting together besides food, music and deserts.
We had a photobooth during the reception and my husbands mother planned a surprise Chinese Traditional Dragon and Lion dance from this school we used to go to (we both went to the same dance school when we were kids).

Thank you for that, my fh is so in for entertaining guest and keep telling him people come to congratulate you, mingle, eat and dance. No time for that but curious of ur shoe game. How does that work/ played.
The only game we're including will be an "I spy..." photo game at each table with our hashtag for them to share on social media. It'll be a nice way to gather pictures of our wedding from other people's perspectives!
Honestly, we didn't do any entertainment... and I literally, 3.5 weeks after my wedding, just realized in my hectic-ness of planning forgot to play the shoe game at our wedding... OMG I'm so sad... Like, pathetically sad... haha.
But just goes to show, people don't miss it... People are great at visiting, socializing, and entertaining themselves. Also, if you're paying for a DJ, utilize it, get people out on the dance floor! Don't worry about professional dancers, or giving people a distraction in the back corner of the room like games or a photo booth.
If you want them, GREAT! go for it! But if you're doing it because you think people will be bored... trust me, they won't be!
We are also doing the shoe game, where you give one of your shoes to your FH and he gives you one of his. The two of you sit back to back so you can't see their answer. Someone (our MC) will read questions about us (i.e. who is most likely to fall asleep watching TV) and we lift up a shoe corresponding to who the question applies to. Sometimes the answers vary between spouses and gets some laughs from guests. That's the shoe game in a nutshell, more can be found here:
We are thinking of having polaroid cameras available and pins to hang up the photos to strings for our guests. We're going to have an outdoor fire pit for folks to relax and talk at as well. We aren't doing anything crazy, people just have to talk!
