Cocktail Hour Activities

Are you tired of the traditional cocktail hour and want to mix yours up?  Well here are some fun ideas of activities for your guests during that time.

Photo booths are a great idea.  Guests can have fun dressing up with different masks or hats and take fun pictures with others.


It could also be fun to have a video camera set up so guests can leave a message or words of wisdom for you two to watch later.

Hiring a comedian for cocktail hour could be an entertaining activity for your guests.  I have never seen this idea take place at weddings, however, who doesn’t love a good laugh?  A comedian would be a great way to entertain your guests.

Having an “I Spy” card would be a great activity too (especially for the young ones).  You could list different things that they need to find at your wedding, such as a pearl necklace or a cake topper.

Games can also be great entertainment.  Games such as Apples to Apples, Checkers or even Backgammon can help guests interact with each other and have a conversation starter.  Having couple trivia cards about the bride and groom would be a fun conversation starter as well.  Guests can mingle with each other while trying to answer each question.

Lastly, lawn games can be a fun activity in the cooler months.  Some ideas are corn hole, washers or blongo/ladder ball.  Both adults and children can have a blast with lawn games.
