Popular Wedding Entertainment Options For An Evening Reception


During your wedding planning, when you get to your evening reception you can start to have plenty of fun with added extras and entertainment options.

The wedding DJ and music from live wedding band are still up there in the popularity stakes, but did you know that many couples are opting for more unusual entertainment ideas?

There is so much more on offer for other elements of entertainment at a wedding reception that we thought we would compile a selection of the popular acts booked on our website and feature them to give you inspiration when looking for wedding entertainment ideas.

Book a Wedding Band for perfect Musical Entertainment

Hiring a Wedding Band is the most popular choice in wedding evening reception entertainment and it is easy to see why when you have seen an experienced wedding band perform!  There is something rather magical about having a live performance at your wedding, and Wedding Bands are experienced in this type of occasion.  Each Wedding Band has their own selection of music that they can play, so if you have any special requests for your first dance, we recommend checking with them first to ensure they can perform it!

Alternatively, keep costs down with a Wedding DJ

For a more cost-effective type of wedding entertainment, another popular choice is the Wedding DJ.  These individuals are full of charisma and will banter with your wedding guests as they take requests and make announcements.  One of the benefits we love about booking a Wedding DJ is that they have a much wider choice in music to play, and many DJ’s also offer added extras such as starlight dancefloors and mood lighting.  Wedding DJ’s are a fabulous choice for wedding entertainment and won’t break the budget too – browse our entertainment directory to find your own Wedding DJ!

Let your hair down and surprise your guests with Comedy Waiters

If you are having tables with evening food at your wedding reception, why not have the last laugh and book Comedy Waiters who will infiltrate your official waiters but cause plenty of mischief!  Your guests will think that you are having a terrible time, until they become so suspicious that they work out that the whole thing has been a set-up!  Just make sure that you tell your Comedy Waiters to steer clear of your wedding dress!  Check out our selection of Comedy Waiters for some unusual, and very funny wedding entertainment!

Although popular with wedding breakfasts, what about a Caricaturist?

Hiring a Caricaturist is a popular choice during wedding drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts, but there is nothing stopping you booking one for your wedding evening reception instead!  These talented artists will sketch your guests within a matter of minutes and give them their drawings to take away with them!  This can offer some lovely memories and if you book a Caricaturist, you must make sure that you get some sketches of yourselves.  Find the perfect Caricaturist for your own wedding evening reception right now!


Keep children entertained and book a Balloon Modeller

We have a number of different children’s entertainment options available on our entertainment directory, however we feel that for a wedding evening reception, a Balloon Modeller is a fantastic choice.  Balloon Modellers will entertain younger children and some of the older ones might like to have a go at balloon modelling themselves!  With Balloon Modellers you can guarantee clean and fun entertainment that will keep little minds out of mischief!  Click here to take a look at our listings for Balloon Modellers to keep your younger guests occupied.
