It improves the overall energy of your special day and holds attention for those all-important moments. So when wedding planning in Goa, here are a few entertainment ideas for any of the major events surrounding your big day.
Indian weddings are filled with song and dance. While you and your guests get amped for your performances during the sangeet, you can set the mood with some energetic moves by a professional troupe like Goan Image. They can help fill in the time you need for outfit changes, help you switch tempos, or even just provide entertainment as everyone enjoys their refreshments.

Get guests involved in the music at your destination wedding in Goa. This is ideal at more casual events - perhaps a pool party, your bachelor/bachelorette celebration, a cocktail do or brunch. There are apps to help you manage guest requests, you could have a music request box for the band or DJ, or a jukebox.

Often, your spouse’s extended family and friends may not know much about you. Table trivia is a great way to help them learn more about the new person in their circle. Include little facts about your spouse and you from the past and from your time together. You can have prizes, have your guests compete in groups or collect answers on sheets of paper left on each table. The latter can serve as entertainment for years to come!

Photo booths are a great way for every guest to take home their own memories of your destination wedding in Goa. You can pick a set up that goes with your theme - say, a beach wedding in Goa or a royal celebration. Choose gorgeous backdrops, quirky or pretty frames and tones that keep your guests in focus.

Remember to ensure sufficient lighting from the right angles. Many photo booth vendors offer fun props that your guests can use when posing for a picture. These include small signs, fancy hats, masks or maybe even cutouts of the bride and groom! If you want to cut costs but still have a photo booth, you can simply create a gorgeous station for guests to take their own images with their mobile phone. They can upload the photos on social media with your wedding hashtag to make them easier to find.

Indian weddings are usually a family affair, which usually means extended family with kids in tow. To give the adults some time off to enjoy themselves while keeping the little ones entertained, consider a bouncy house. You can organise shifts to ensure an adult has an eye on the entire brood at all times to avoid mishaps.
