If you aren’t up for playing croquet or corn toss at your wedding but still want to provide entertainment for your guests, how about a magician.  It is an ever-growing wedding trend in England and would be a wonderful way to entertain all ages.  If grandma doesn’t want to do the chicken dance, she can watch a card trick.  

I love this idea and suggest you review this article by magician Dan Gifford lists some criteria that you want your magician to meet before you hire him to entertain your guests and you. Click

Brides are always concerned with their guests being bored.  Well, not if you provide a means of entertainment for them.  I saw this post on #WeddingWednesday via Twitter and could not wait to share it with our readers!  What a fantastic DIY idea! 

Have games for your guests to play!  What a great way to pass the time while your guests wait on you to arrive to the reception or for those who don’t want to dance. 🙂 It might even be a great addition to your rehearsal dinner.  Either way, you and your guests will always remember the experience and the celebration of your wedding.

Kim Wright
Stella & Dot Star Stylist

What Kim has to say: “I have operated my own belt/embroidery business, Catchy Accessories, for six years, which has been great fun, but when I discovered Stella & Dot I jumped at the chance to represent such a super jewelry line. The company’s pieces are incredibly stylish and not only do I love them, but I knew my friends and family would too! I didn’t need to open my own boutique and worry about leases, inventory, websites, and employees! I was thrilled that I could launch this business RIGHT AWAY and work it right alongside my Catchy Accessories business! No risk at all. The product is so stylish and affordable, it sells itself! Tons of my customers have already seen Stella & Dot jewelry featured in fashion magazines, like Instyle, People, Oprah and more!”
