Today we are sharing our best ideas for entertaining your wedding guests. These ideas work well for bridal showers, at hen's nights or for engagement parties too! Give your wedding guests something fun to do at your wedding reception and allow them to share their memories from your wedding day.
Wedding Activity Cards
Activity Cards make a great ice breaker at your event. Date Night Cards, Fill-in-the-Blanks, Advice Cards and Quiz Cards are a fun way to entertain your guests, allow them to share some sentimental (or silly!) thoughts, and can provide a keepsake for the happy couple.
Simply pick your favourite design, and order however many you need. All these are in stock and ready to ship, so they are perfect for a last minute addition to your big day.
Our Advice Cards are available in two sizes. The “Small Postcard” size is 105x148mm and the “Large Rectangle” size is 127x178mm. They come in sets of 50, 75, 100 and 150.
Some couples choose to order enough for each wedding guest, and then place an advice card at each seat. Your MC can prompt the guests to drop their cards off in a card box or ask your venue to collate them from tables at the end of the night.
Other couples order enough for each family unit that’s attending their wedding - this is where guests jointly fill out a card. In this situation, you would have a separate area set up containing a stack of your cards, a sign giving instructions on what you’d like them to do, a polaroid camera and pens.
Wedding guestbooks are customised to suit your wedding day details. Each guestbook is printed to order, so you are able to change the wording to include whatever details are important – such as your wedding date, wedding location and anything else that you want included.
The guest book cover and pages are A4 size (210 x 297mm) and wire bound, with a protective plastic sheet.
Capture memories from your wedding reception with a polaroid camera alongside your guestbook, and stick candid snaps from your celebrations alongside the messages and autographs from your favourite people. See our recommendations for guestbook pens here.
A blank guestbook page can be intimidating for guests. Add some activity cards, a polaroid camera and some washi tape to spark inspiration and creativity for when your guests go to share their memories of your special day.
We offer four sizes of guestbook:
- Small has 10 leaves
- Regular has 20 leaves
- Large has 30 leaves
- Extra-Large has 50 leaves
The best size for you will depend on the number of guests you have attending, and whether you are getting them to stick activity cards and polaroid photos in with their messages.
We always recommending going for slightly larger than you think, if in doubt. You can always add in greeting cards, menus and other mementoes from your event if you end up with spare pages afterwards.
Alternative Guestbook Ideas
Find a fun spin on an alternative guestbook for another way to entertain guests. Reflect on what you and your partner enjoy doing and how you could incorporate that. For example, if you enjoy games nights and puzzles, having guests sign a jenga set:
Your guestbook can double as a piece of art for your home as well. Our signing posters come in a variety of print styles:

Entertaining Children at your wedding
Having kids at your wedding can be a hot topic, so if you are feeling a bit nervous about your smallest guests then having something to keep them busy should put you at ease.
Our Children's Activity Packs will entertain a range of ages and allow their parents, and you, to sit back and enjoy the speeches!
