10 Things We Love About... Wedding Entertainment
One of the fun parts of organizing a wedding is choosing your entertainment. Whether you’re going for the DJ, full on band or some quirky and alternative ways to keep your guests entertained, you can add an element of fun to your day with your wedding entertainment. From the fun of dancing to disco tunes to playing hoopla with the family, these are our 10 favorite things about wedding entertainment.
You can show your personality!
When it comes to your entertainment you can really show off your personality. Like the circus? Why not have some performers do some tricks or stilt walkers! Love country music? You could have a good ol’ hoedown complete with some line dancing and caller. Let your guests know what your fun-loving tastes are, whether they’re wild an wacky or cool and cultured.
Add something special
You can add a special element to your day with your entertainment. You can even add a little magic to your day with a magician, have a fortuneteller reading palms, or why not set up some casino-style tables. Whatever you theme is you can find some special detail that will add a special but memorable element to your day.
It will break the ice
While most people love a wedding, there will be guests who don’t feel comfortable in large groups and other people who won’t know anyone else at the wedding. Having entertainment will break the ice between guests and give people the chance to get to know each other.
It’s a talking point!
Long after your wedding is over people will still be talking about how amazing the band was or how you had some really cool entertainment. It's always nice to be complimented for your good taste!
The photo opportunities
Get your entertainment right and you’ll get some amazing photographs you’ll treasure forever. Whether it’s the newlyweds dancing to Macarena, your guests trying to get their hula-hoop on, or a Frank Sinatra lookalike posing with the married couple – you will have some photos that will make everyone smile!
Everyone will enjoy it!
Whether your guests are eight or 80, everyone enjoys a bit of entertainment! Whether it’s an illusionist at your drinks reception or a singer belting out the hits, there is at least one moment everyone can pick as their favorite.
The theme possibilities
There's so much choice when it comes to wedding entertainment that you can easily find something to fit in with your theme. If you’re going rustic you could opt for something like a singer-songwriter or a bluegrass group. For an Irish wedding you could have some Irish dancers or a céili dance, or for a movie based wedding you could have people acting out your favorite scenes. Let your imagination run wild!
You can work with your theme!
Because of the sheer amount of choice when it comes to wedding entertainment you can find something that will fit with your theme. Having a rustic wedding – hire a singer-songwriter or bluegrass band play at your reception. If you’re having a movie themed wedding you could have actors play out your favorite scenes. Let your imagination run wild when it comes to entertaining your guests!
Work with your budget
Whether you want to go all out and hire a fairground or are going more low-key with games outside your venue, you will find some form of entertainment that will work with your budget.
You won’t forget
Having some entertainment that you love means you will enjoy it more than anyone else, and as bride and groom that’s how it should be! Dance the night away to your favorite kind of music or laugh out loud at a comedian. Whatever you decide to have, your entertainment will mean it’s a day you won’t forget.
