Vintage themed weddings are becoming increasingly popular with the comeback of vintage China, elegant lace wedding dresses and plenty of pearls! If you are planning your own vintage styled wedding, you may not have considered the different entertainment options that are available to you for throughout your big day. Firstly, let’s look at your wedding ceremony.

Although many couples who choose a traditional church ceremony opt for the musical elements of their ceremony to be played by the church organist, there are also other live music alternatives that are perfect for a vintage themed wedding.


The harp is classically known as one of the most romantic musical instruments which makes it perfect for weddings. Hiring a harpist not only provides beautiful ceremony music, but also offers a visual display since a harpist looks very elegant as they play their instrument. You can even book your harpist to play during your drinks reception.

String Quartets

Another option for beautiful live music during your wedding ceremony is to hire a string quartet. String quartets consist of two violinists, a viola player and a cellist. Performing anything from classical masterpieces through to more modern options, a string quartet will provide atmospheric background music and since their instruments are easy to transport, they will be able to change locations from your ceremony to your drinks reception with ease.




There are many other options to choose from for live music for your vintage styled wedding ceremony. If a harpist or string quartet aren’t your thing, why not try one of the following…

Once you are married and have made your way to your drinks reception you are likely to be whisked away by your wedding photographer, leaving your guests to mingle. It is always a lovely idea to put on entertainment for these quieter moments during your wedding day. If you have already booked an instrumentalist for your ceremony, you can ask them to perform at your drinks reception too, but your entertainment options aren’t purely musical. Why not consider…




Hiring a Close-Up Magician

Magicians were very popular in the 1940s and 1950s, so why not book a close-up magician to entertain your guests. Suitable for both wedding drinks receptions and also during a wedding breakfast, a close-up magician will work the room performing magic tricks to smaller groups of people. Your guests will be amazed as your magician works with cards, coins, ropes, money and other small objects, making them disappear and using sleight of hand.

Other ideas for entertainment during a vintage themed drinks reception include: caricaturists, a cappella groups and guitar singers.

After your drinks reception and wedding breakfast, you and your guests will already be partying the day away. An evening reception is the perfect time to liven up the entertainment. Here are our suggestions for perfect vintage themed evening reception entertainment.

  • Add that vintage edge by hiring a Swing Band to perform to your guests and get them up onto the dance floor.
  • If space isn’t an issue and you want something more dramatic, why not hire a big band or orchestra to put on quite a performance!
  • Wedding bands have plenty of experience performing at weddings. If you want a vintage twist for your evening reception, ask if they can accommodate this theme.
  • For an authentic vintage performance, book a 40’s tribute band or 50’s tribute act who will provide perfect vintage styled entertainment.
  • Book a male singer or female vocalist that specialises in the style of performance and genre of music that you both love.
