Planning a wedding is hard enough, but if you’re planning on having a wide age range of guests it can become even more complicated. Imagine hosting a party for kids under the age of ten, your best friends from high school and college, your parents, and your grandparents. While these people all have something in common—they’re some of your closest friends and family—that’s about it. Thankfully, there are some ways to plan a wedding that entertains guests of all ages!
Consider the Progression of Your Music
Speak to your DJ about the collection of people attending your wedding. Start with older music that everyone knows and enjoys, and as it gets later, you can progress to more modern, club-like music. Chances are the kids and older adults will be leaving before it gets too late, which means you’ll have plenty of time to play some hot dance music that the younger generations love.
Set Up a Kids Table
A great way to keep kids entertained is to set up a kids table. Include things like color books, toys, and smaller games. Whatever you do, avoid things like paint, markers, and stickers because they can make a big mess. Crayons and colored pencils should be just fine to keep them entertained!
Incorporate a Photo Booth
A photo booth is another great way to keep guests of all ages entertained. If a song plays that they’re not privy to, it’s the perfect time to slip away from the dance floor and enjoy a minute or two in the photo booth. Rentals can be relatively inexpensive, but make sure there’s plenty of fun props!
Have an Ice Cream Sundae Bar
Let’s face it, everyone loves ice cream sundaes. It doesn’t matter if you’re 8 years old or 80. After dinner ends and the dancing starts, have an ice cream sundae bar laid out. All you need is a couple flavors of ice cream and some great toppings!
This one might seem a bit farfetched, but adding some casino tables is sure to be a hit with the older guests. Have a blackjack and roulette table placed in one corner of the room and the older gentlemen who refuse to step foot on the dance floor will flock to it. Obviously, no money is exchanged, but you can offer a fun prize to the person with the most chips at the end of the night! This fits perfectly with a glamour or black tie wedding and is sure to impress guests.
