How to Entertain Guests at you Outdoor Wedding

Outdoor weddings have their special appeal and many couples choose to have their reception in open space. That’s a great idea, but same as with indoor weddings, you will want to make sure every single guest is properly entertained.


The Mackey House has witnessed many memorable outdoor weddings happening at our venue and we have gathered some of the best entertainment ideas we have seen so far. Read on and find out more about our favorite outdoor entertainment tips.

  • Choose a unique wedding band. Music will play a very important role in keeping all of your guests properly entertained. Instead of a DJ or a very “generic” wedding band, bring someone interesting to provide you with music to dance on. For instance, an all-strings wedding band could be a great choice.
  • Fun photo booth. People love taking pictures and weddings are excellent occasions for this. Provide your guests with a fun and unique photo booth. You can bring props that fit into your wedding theme and you can even work with the marvelous landscape here at The Mackey House to create something really special. Be creative and you won’t regret it!
  • Play games. Whoever said adults don’t play games? Your outdoor wedding can be extremely fun if you incorporate some games into it. From casino games to sweet, childish games, there’s a wide variety of options that can be incorporated into an outdoor wedding so do not hesitate to do it.

Outdoor weddings and The Mackey House go perfectly together. Our beautiful venue, the stunning natural landscape and the fresh air will contribute a lot to your wedding. Bring in your entertainment ideas and we’ll help you incorporate them into our outdoor reception space – your guests will be more than impressed and your Big Day will be absolutely unforgettable.
