Of course the most important factor on the big day is that the special couple have the most magical experience of their lives; however, isn’t it important to ensure that guests have an equally incredible time?
To guarantee your wedding is one to remember, do something a little different by providing more than music at your wedding reception!
Don’t get us wrong, great music is definitely essential for the evening celebrations. However, we also think it’s a great idea to cater to all guests, young and old, those who aren’t movers and groovers and those who will never leave the dance floor, by providing a range of reception entertainment. A fun Mr and Mrs Quiz for example is a great entertainment option and ice breaker for guests.
We have compiled a handy list of unique entertainment that caters to all tastes and preferences, providing a full rounded sensory experience to ensure your guests are blown away by your big day and talking about it for years to come.
Belly Dance Show
Bring more life to the party with festively clothed belly dancers for your guests to enjoy. Providing incredible fun and encouraging guests to lose their inhibitions and join in, a belly dance show is a surreal and unique entertainment option to get guests in the party mood.
This is a great post-wedding breakfast show to kick off the evening reception celebrations.
Fireworks, Flames and Confetti
Ensure your wedding goes out with a bang by including amazing pyrotechnics such as fireworks to entertain your guests! But don’t stop there; Le Maitre Events provide incredible flame projectors that are the perfect complement to the first dance as well as impressive confetti, streamer and glitter canons for added effect. Smoke machines are extremely atmospheric and create that unmistakable low lying fog.
Perfect entertainment for children and adults alike, you can really personalise this option with your choice of carousels and fairground rides. This is a unique compliment to your outdoor festival or woodland style wedding and provides a whimsical vintage touch to your special occasion.
It’s the finishing touches that really make a difference, so why not include a fun candyfloss or sweet cart to add to the fun.
Fire and Knife Dance
If you’re the type of couple who hear ‘fire and knives’ and think excitement, then this one is definitely for you! A sure fire (like what we did there) way to wow your guests, this unique entertainment option is likely to be one that you and your loved ones have never experienced before. Kick of your evening celebrations with this striking display.
Coax the inner child out of your guests with this fun entertainment option. You can choose from a range of different designs and colours to suit your wedding theme, from a white castle style to floral extravaganzas. The bouncy castle trend is set to take off so make sure you amp up the entertainment a notch with this fun feature.
An alternative way to get your guests on the dance floor and excellent ice breaker, a ceilidh band is the perfect interactive musical option. With someone leading the dance at the front and teaching the simple routine, ceilidh is super easy to learn and brilliant for guests of all ages.
This national Scottish dance is sure to provide a packed dance floor and bring all your loved ones together.
Watch as your guests sing along freely wearing headphones that are playing their favourite tunes! This is a surreal entertainment option and is perfect if you need to keep things quiet after hours for the neighbours.
This is a great one for garden and festival style weddings as well as inner city celebrations where you may have noise restrictions. You can also provide various music options so that guests can tailor their experience to listen to their personal favourites.
If your favourite celebrity didn’t respond to the RSVP for your big day then don’t fret. Why not hire a celebrity look-alike to shock your guests?
You could have a rendition or two from the likes of Elvis Presley or allow your guests to mingle with Madonna.
An oldie-but-goodie, karaoke is a firm classic that brings people together and encourages fun and frivolity! Guaranteed to bring about some laughs, this entertainment option suits a variety of wedding themes and is relatively cost effective for the more budget conscious couple.
We hope we’ve inspired you to go against the grain and provide your guests with an entertainment option that is a little different. Like we said, great music is a must, but it’s those little extras that will stick in the minds of your guests and leave them reminiscing on your wedding for years to come!
