Having a ton of family members and friends coming together for the first time is a slightly frightening — yet wonderful! And if you’re stretching your wedding celebration into a whole weekend, it can be a good idea to have festivities to keep your guests occupied while they meet and mingle. Activities are definitely not required (and not every wedding has them), but if you have a little room in your budget, it’s a generous and sweet gift to your nearest and dearest who may not know the city you’re getting married in too well.
Here are ideas for additional entertainment for your wedding that could fit in nicely with your guest list and wedding theme, from the beginning to the end!
A Welcome Party
Throwing a welcome party is a great way to kick off your wedding weekend, especially since your guests will feel like old friends by the time your wedding reception rolls around. It doesn’t have to be fancy at all — laid-back is the way to go.
