How to make an alcohol free wedding fun?
You do not need alcohol in order to have a fun and memorable wedding day although you need to put a little more thought into entertainment if you aren't relying on alcohol giving people the confidence to dance and generally make a foul of themselves.
I'd highly recommend making sure your band or DJ is engaging and skilled at motivating people to dance and is good at reading the room. Another great entertainment option that is soaring in popularity is singing waiters.
You might also want to consider hiring games or a casino to give extra entertainment.
Also look at ways you can serve food that means your guests are interacting with each other like grazing tables, sweet carts (don't forget to add in some lollies!), pizza oven or an ice cream van.
