Halloween is all about the scare factor but most of all it is about the fun and excitement factor that makes things memorable. What are you doing this Halloween this year? Are you planning in organizing a party or an event? Well no party is great without something special to talk about. You will need some games or activities in which that makes your event the must visit event this year. Here are some ideas for your event.
If I were you I would organize an event which consists of Halloween based games all round one mega game that it will be based around. Most events will have a horror house why not take to another level and make it an escape room game?
Escaping requires the person work their way out of the room instead of just walking through a path getting jumped in by people screaming. It is more realistic and fun. Adding the scare when people are tense can be mind-blowing. The escape experience is something that you don’t find everywhere and you can gain a lot of crowd if the publicity and word of mouth goes nicely.
You should also have other small games to play like finding items in the dark. A pitch dark room with several soft items in it and you can give a certain amount of time for the group of people to find the items. The items must be felt and kept back in the same place and not brought out of the room. If you name all the items correctly you win a prize. Try to have weird items. Last time I went in to such a room, I found a mini Eifel tower, diving shoes, a cap and fake cut hand. Most of these items have no connection and feeling them gave curiosity.
Have you ever made a DIY bowling alley? Google how to do it, it is not something difficult to do. The catch here is you decorate the pins as ghosts or mummies. Basically you have to knock down the mummies. You can give prizes if they manage to get a strike in 3 attempts or something in those lines. It also depends on how easy it is to get strikes. If it is easy then getting one doesn’t even need luck to help out. Another small game can be a spider web game. Where the web is drawn all over the floor like a maze and you have to get to the other by only walking on the web. You can draw the web by a tape or a think rope. Have obstacles on the path ways so such not all paths can be travelled. Get you thinking hat out and have creative games. The more creative they are the better they will be.
When it is a marriage being planned, it is not only about the kind of day it is for the couple, but also a memorable event for all those who are related or friends of the groom and bride. For such reasons, often a marriage reception needs something more than mere getting together of guests and elaborate luncheons or dinners being served.
One way to make a wedding reception exciting and memorable is to add wedding dance classes in advance with an experienced choreographer. In most weddings the wedding couple is expected to put up a performance. Nowadays it is even more fun to have choreographed dances for other guests as well. This is especially fun when the groom’s men in waiting as well as bridesmaids participate. It is possible to put up couple dances or group dance performances when people can put in additional hours of practice a few months before the wedding.
Fun participatory events
When events are planned where wedding guests can participate, it becomes more fun and exciting. For such reasons many wedding planners incorporate casual or informal games in wedding receptions that bring people together. Many games are centered on the bride and groom along with the others participating. However, when it comes to live band and dance that is something that everyone looks forward to. As a result, many wedding couples and even their close friends to take up swing dance lessons in preparation for a choreographed dance performance for the wedding reception.
How to start?
Planning to have choreographed dance performances might be fun, but the planning needs to be done from before. Those who wish to dance themselves need to make time to attend classes. The process starts by finding a wedding choreographer. Many dance school teachers seem ideal for such requirements. However, the timing of private classes as well as terms for payment needs to be discussed and agreed upon. Also, the wedding couple as well as others who wish to performs needs to be sincere about sticking to the dance rehearsal timings.
It is important to first decide on the kind of dance performance one would like to focus upon. Usually community based popular dance forms are chosen. It is best to opt for social dance forms that couples can participate in. Hence it is best to explore the different dance forms and figure out styles that are easy for couples to pick up as per their dancing prowess and the time that is available for practice before the reception.
