Planning your wedding can be a little stressful to say the least. There are so many different elements that need to be decided upon and booked before the big day — not to mention the fact that you will want to ensure your wedding stands out from the crowd and offers your guests something completely original and unique.

 

This is a tough feat in today’s world with social media allowing a seemingly never-ending stream of amazing and authentic wedding ideas that brides before you have used to wow their family and friends, and all their followers of course!

 

However, do not become disheartened just yet as there is still time for you to organize the wedding of the decade, or even the century (why not aim big?).

 

All you need to do is keep reading to discover the top 5 wedding entertainment ideas for each part of your special day that will ensure your wedding is talked about for many years to come.

The Ceremony

 

Naturally you will want the main focus to be on you, your spouse-to-be and your vows, but that doesn’t mean you can’t also have some background entertainment going on that will make your ceremony even better.

 

Although most people choose to have a singer, a guitarist or even a harpist playing softly as the bride walks down the aisle, why not go all out and hire a gospel choir?

 

What could be more life affirming on your special day than a full choir spreading joy, happiness and enthusiasm as you enter this new and exciting phase of your life?

Drinks Reception

 

After an emotional ceremony, most people will be ready for a drink or two to toast the bride and groom. As well as offering a selection of tasty cocktails and nibbles for your guests to enjoy, it is also a good idea to provide some form of entertainment to keep them amused whilst you have some post-ceremony photographs taken.

 

Now, you could hire an entertainer, or you could offer something a bit more special and interactive such as a fairground ride. The perfect option if you are holding your drinks reception outside is a Carousel, Ferris Wheel or even Traditional Dodgems — these are sure to delight guests of all ages.

Wedding Breakfast

 

Whether you have chosen to have a sit-down meal or a wedding buffet, however good the food is, it will not be enough on its own to ensure that your day goes down in wedding history. You will also need to arrange some additional entertainment that will complement, but not distract from, the lovely meal that you are serving to your guests.

 

The perfect solution? A table magician. With many different styles of magicians to choose from including comedy-based magic, illusionists and magicians specifically for your younger guests, choosing a table magician to accompany your wedding breakfast is a sure-fire way to wow your guests.

Evening Reception

 

Of course you will want to hire either a band or a DJ so that you and your guests can get down and boogie into the early hours of the morning. However, it is also a great idea to have other forms of entertainment for those who have two left feet, or guests who need a break from the dance floor.

 

In this case, you could opt for a photobooth, but this option has been done to death, so why not offer something a bit different instead — for example, a selfie booth.

 

Don’t worry, you can still provide your guests with an array of funny props for their pics, plus they will get to take away printed versions of their selfies home with them.

Just for the Kids

 

There is nothing worse than a lot of kids running around wreaking havoc at a wedding because they are bored. Fortunately you can avoid this from happening on your big day with the help of a bubbleologist.

 

Everyone knows what kids are like with bubbles — they just can’t get enough of them!
