Amazing Wedding Entertainment Ideas
The big day may be fast approaching but you still need to come up with some fun ways to keep your guests entertained on a budget. Sound familiar? Luckily for you, we’ve put together an amazing list of options that will allow your guests to have fun late into the night as you do the rounds and thank everyone for coming.
Pick Your Theme, Then Choose Your Entertainment
Weddings can be stressful occasions to organise because you have to walk the tightrope between what you and your partner like, and what your friends and family will enjoy spending the day doing. The secret with your entertainment is to only decide on it once you have the decor style and theme clear in your mind. Your table dressing, food, hall decorations and so much more need to be done first so that you have a clear picture of what your overall reception will look like. Once you have that image clear in your mind you’ll find it so much easier to come up with entertainment ideas that fit in with the overall theme of the day.
Make a Real Entrance
The receiving line is a great way for you and your new life partner to welcome every single guest into the reception and say a personal thank you for spending their time with you on the biggest day of your life. Looking into red carpet hire could be a great way of allowing every guest to make a real entrance into the reception venue if it’s something that’s going to match the style of your big day.
If this is an idea that’s piqued your interest then measure up and have a clear idea of where you’d like your red carpet for the day to go. That way you’ll be able to ensure that every guest has the amazing feeling of walking down it as they wish you a lifetime of happiness together.
Seasonal Seating is a Surefire Hit
If you’re throwing a summer wedding then the chances are you’ll have plenty of outdoor space or large hotel grounds you want to dress according to your overall theme. It can take so much time and effort to get the interiors just so that you can often overlook the outside spaces and then be left wishing that you had more time when it’s too late.
Seasonal seating is a great way to quickly and affordably transform any outdoor space in just a few minutes. All you’ll need are a few willing bridesmaids and ushers who will get up half an hour early to lay everything out whilst you and your partner get ready stress-free. Deckchair hire could be a great option if you’re looking to create a relaxed family environment that your loved ones will enjoy all day long. The great thing about using seating to dress your outdoor spaces is that it also acts as something for people to gather around as they spread out and get talking as the evening goes on.
Everyone Loves a Good Selfie
Whilst you may have paid good money for an official wedding photographer so you can get those timeless photos you’ll treasure forever, there’s nothing quite like seeing your loved ones give their silly side a runout. A magic selfie mirror is a great idea if you’re looking for something entertaining to hire. You could leave a couple of Polaroid cameras nearby and ask people to clip their images onto a peg line once they’ve taken them. Perfect for giving you a treasure trove of memories to look back on in the days after.
Bunting Can Transform Any Space
Another great idea for those of you looking to have your big day in the summer months is to look into bunting hire. With a seemingly endless selection of styles and colours on offer, you’re guaranteed to find something that’s in-keeping with the wedding decor. The great thing is that not only is it readily affordable, you can easily string it up in a couple of minutes if you have a best man and a ladder to hand!
Use it indoors and outdoors, whichever takes your fancy, and you’ll be able to create that picture-perfect wedding that you’ve always dreamed of. Ideal for creating memories that you’re sure to treasure forever as you embark on the adventure of a lifetime.
Have Something for the Kids
One of the tricky things about wedding entertainment is that you need to cater for a huge range of ages; right the way from the grandparents to the newborns in the family. This normally entails finding activities that will keep a small army of kids and toddlers occupied as their attention inevitably wanders over what for them will be a long and tiring day. Side stall hire is a great way to provide entertainment that they’ll flock to the moment they set eyes on it. Hook-A-Duck, Hoop Toss, a Coconut Shy, you name it the little people in the family will love it. Just be sure to leave plenty of space so that everyone else can get a good view of what’s going on and you’ll be able to entertain dozens of people at the same time as you criss-cross the room meeting and greeting all of your guests.
All Set For the Big Day?
With the big day fast approaching it can be easy to get stressed and lose sight of why you’re doing it all. Planning your entertainment ideas early is a great way to get a feeling of what the evening reception is going to be like. Remember that it is all about having fun with the people that mean the most to you and you’ll come up with a dozen ideas in no time at all.
Now it’s over to you and your partner to put the finishing touches and get set for the best day of your lives. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
