Let’s keep it real ya’ll – no one wants to go to a wedding and be bored. And there is not a couple in this world that want their guest to leave their wedding thinking “that was boring” #weddingfail.

No worries though; there are a ton of off the wall wedding entertainment ideas aside from the traditional photo booth (I always enjoy a good photobooth BTW) that are inexpensive alternatives to the traditions. These ideas are sure to keep your guests on their toes and give them a night to remember for years to come.

I did some searching on the internet for some of the most crazy fun ideas couples have come up with. I’m talking bouncy castles, mechanical bulls, ice cream trucks; yes, ice cream trucks. Take a looksy below for a few of the best ideas I found (with the help of Huffington Post).

Have a better idea that you or someone you know had at their wedding? Drop it in the comments!

  1. Create a different dancing vibe:
    • Give a dance lesson at the reception
    • Include guests in on a family or ethnic tradition on the dance floor
    • Incorporate a Dueling Pianos show
  2. Channel your inner kid
    • Rent a bouncy house or a bouncy obstacle course
    • Include a game room; air hockey, ping pong, & video games
    • Rent a petting zoo
  3. Pretend your wedding is an action packed movie
    • Rent a helicopter
    • Utilize video cameras to create a movie
      • Create a section for guests to re-create a movie scene
  4. Your DJ is key
  5. Let your food be the entertainment
    • Food Trucks
    • Midnight Snacks after the reception
    • Candy or Cookie Bar
