You’ve got the dance floor and the deejay covered, but there are many ways to keep your guests entertained all night long. Here’s a few that’ll add a wow factor to your wedding reception.
If you’ve got a flair for the dramatic (and high ceilings), DC’s Morgana Alba will air dance for your guests on silks, straps, trapeze, and more. $600 and up.
Caricature and Silhouette Artists
Entertainment plus favors in one! Book a Caricature Artists Group caricaturist to complete full (10 to 20 an hour) or quick (20-plus an hour) sketches of your guests, or hire a silhouette artist to cut 15 portraits an hour. $120 an hour per caricature artist with a two-hour minimum, $150 an hour per silhouette artist.
Washington DC Casino & Poker Rentals will bring poker, craps, roulette, and blackjack (along with tuxedo-clad dealers) to complete the high-roller look and feel of your event. One table starts at $475 for three hours.
Surprise guests with an appearance by anyone from Barack Obama to Darth Vader. Faux celebs from Entertainment Exchange are great as greeters; they also mix well on the dance floor. More than 68 doppelgängers starting at $300 an hour.
Lips are the new window to the soul, and Maryland’s Ariana Lightningstorm knows how to read ’em. Guests smooch a card three times, and the certified lipsologist reveals insights into their personality. $400 for the first two hours, $150 each additional hour.
So long, cornhole—Maryland-based Talk of the Town can provide everything from mini-golf to giant chess to balloon darts. Lawn-game rental starts at $25 with a $60 minimum for pickup and a $300 minimum for delivery.
Guests pose for four successive shots in front of Ombooth’s DSLR-enabled photo booth, then input their email to receive an Insta-ready GIF to share on social media. Lighting and printouts also included, from $2,000 for four hours.
