Keep the kids in mind

Make plans for the little ones so they don’t get bored throughout the reception (and to give their parents an opportunity to hit the dance floor), give them their own designated area. Could be in a separate room, arrange for a babysitter to set up and oversee movies, games, crafts or kids dance party. You can also set up a few tables topped with coloring books, crayons, games and small toys. These will keep the adults less distracted.


Have the DJ or Band play the music that wows the guests

Whether you’ve hired a band or a DJ, if you want to keep the dance floor packed, plan a playlist that will please the whole crowd, not just a playlist for you two. Yeah we all know it’s your day but you wouldn’t invite guests if you just want to have it alone so try to be flexible. Mix in a few of your favorites, but don’t leave out the past and present hits, otherwise you risk an empty dance floor.
