Fun Wedding Reception Activities

There are some amazingly fun wedding reception activities these days. Here are some unique ideas that are wedding trendsetters.


Everyone loves to watch a magician, especially if he is in the crowd working close-up magic. Hire one or more magicians to entertain your guests.

Fire Performers

There are a lot of different fire performers that will wow guests at your outdoor wedding. Not all of them are swallowing flaming swords, some have very creative ways to entertain your family and friends.

Singing Waiters

It should be easy to find a comedy troupe or singing waiters to excite the crowd, given there are so many theater actors and entertainers to choose from in the Bay Area. They blend into the crowd and start performing when guests least expect it.

Living Statue

Shockingly entertaining are living statues. These are actors in full makeup that look exactly like a plaster statue – until they start moving!

Casino Tables

Let your guests try their hand at spinning the wheel or playing a little blackjack. Any money raised will go toward a predetermined, worthy charity.


Hire a dance troupe that can be hip hop, ballet dancers or traditional folk dancers. Guests will be in awe of the professional dance moves and try to join in.

Aerial Acts

Only certain venues will be able to accommodate these amazing performers. They hang by scarves twisting and turning in a beautiful dance. It is amazing to watch.

A Glamorous Cabaret

Cabaret isn’t just for Paris anymore. There are many cabaret acts that are not only sexy, but will entertain while they sing and dance to the joyful cheers of the crowd.
