Utah Bride and Groom

Mountain Mayhem

Shotskis, video booths, cornhole games, afterparties? These days, weddings are so much more than dinner and dancing. Three experts weigh in on how to keep your guests on their toes all night long.

Wedding planner Kristen Spear of Soirée Productions orchestrates the most luxe events for clients from New York, Texas and California. When there’s Park City wedding action, Spear’s typically behind it.

“My favorite indoor activity for wedding guests was a mechanical bull we had at Blue Sky Ranch,” she says. “I also like the new interactive photo booths. They now all connect to the Internet so guests can share on social media immediately.”

“My favorite outdoor activity for wedding guests is corn hole or s’more stations. Guests often receive a personalized corn hole game as a shower gift, so we use that for wedding-day lawn games,” Spear says. “S’mores in the winter are so fun. We place Adirondack chairs around a fire pit and style them with fun buffalo check blankets.” Shotskis, live paintings, whiskey tasting stations, margarita bike blenders, horseshoes, caricature artists and astrology readings spice up a party, too. soireeproductions.com
