Throwing a wedding also means hosting a wedding. While it is "your day", it's important to show gratitude for your guests, as they've traveled to celebrate the love you share with your partner. Here are a few tips to make sure your wedding guests have the time of their lives at your reception.
Make it Interactive
How do you make a wedding "interactive", you ask? Simple. It's 2016 and we live in a digital world ruled by Snapchat Geofilters and Instagram hashtags. While not every single guest can be in the family photos, creating a Snapchat Geofilter is a great way to keep your friends and family engaged and included. It's simply, really, just visit the Snapchat website, upload the artwork you want displayed on your Geofilter, and set the date! Another great resource in creating Geofliters can be found here! Not feeling as tech-savvy? Have it your way - create a witty #hashtag for guests to use when they post on Instagram and Twitter. This is quick, easy, and gives your wedding a title. Follow this guide when choosing your own wedding hashtag, or even use this generator to create one for you!
Don't forget Amenities
Amenities are key to having happy and lively guests. This could range from a chocolate fondue that's set out after dinner and throughout the entire reception, to complimentary party favors at the end of the night.

Have Live Music or a Killer DJ
Finally, great music is at the heart of any great celebration. If you're looking for a specific sound, finding a live band may be for you. If you're all about variety and allowing your guests to make requests, you should consider finding an energetic DJ to keep your reception lively. Lucky for you, you're in the right place, as Spark Events has award-winning DJs, and we're booking now.

Although it is "your day", it's important to remember that your wedding wouldn't be the big production without your guests there celebrating the love and joy you've found in your partner. By providing a way for guests to feel involved, appreciated, and energetic, you'll have the time of your life, and so will they.
