When it comes to planning a wedding, couples often seek memorable and enjoyable experiences for their guests. With wedding entertainment, it is so easy to get caught up and feel like you need to have elaborate setups and grand performances to wow your guests. Whilst these are impressive, sometimes it's the simple yet impactful ideas that truly leave a lasting impression on everyone. In this blog post, we have listed our top picks for wedding entertainment that goes down a treat and stays with guests for a lifetime.
If you want guests to have a bespoke keepsake of your big day, why not opt for a caricaturist? A caricaturist can capture the essence and humour of your loved ones through quick sketches, creating personalized and amusing momentos. Your guests will enjoy themselves while posing for their caricatures and leave with a special souvenir to treasure from your special day. We love them for weddings because of the interactive element that sparks conversation and brings your guests together, creating a light-hearted and joyful atmosphere that will be remembered for years to come.
Finding captivating entertainment for the cocktail hour or meal can be difficult, but a walkaround magician ticks all the boxes. A skilled magician can seamlessly move through the crowd, performing mind-boggling tricks, illusions, and sleight of hand. Whether it's card tricks, disappearing acts, or mind reading, the magician's close-up magic will leave your guests spellbound and amazed. After years in the entertainment industry, we have seen a fair few magicians in our time, but can safely say that we are still left gobsmacked every time.
Photo booths are always a hit at weddings, but why not take it a step further and make it interactive? Incorporate props, backdrops, and even some creative themes (why not match it to your wedding theme?) to encourage guests to unleash their creativity and capture candid moments. We have a variety of different photo booths with instant printing capabilities, allowing your loved ones to take home their pictures from your special day.
To add a dose of nostalgia and get everyone on their feet, consider booking a tribute band to perform at your wedding reception. Tribute bands specialize in recreating the sound, energy, and stage presence of renowned artists or bands from the past. If the special couple has a favourite genre, artist or era that they both love, there's likely a tribute band that can deliver an authentic and electrifying performance. Tribute acts/ bands make for a very special personal touch that can be enjoyed by everyone.
For an unexpected twist and endless laughter, surprise your guests with comedy waiters during the wedding reception. These entertainers will blend seamlessly with the venue staff, impersonating waiters and engaging in comedic antics. From playful mix-ups and exaggerated service to hilarious interactions with guests, the comedy waiters will keep everyone entertained throughout the evening. Their comedic timing and witty banter will have your guests in stitches, creating a light-hearted and joyful atmosphere.
While planning a wedding can be a daunting task, choosing the right entertainment doesn't have to be. By incorporating these effortless ideas into your special day, you can ensure that everyone has a fantastic time celebrating your love. Remember, it's the little things that make a big impact, and with these ideas, your wedding will be nothing short of extraordinary.
