Are you planning your very own Christmas Wedding?
Your big day will be upon you before you can blink! Hopefully you have organised all of your to-do list including your entertainment. It’s never too early to get your entertainment sorted, so keep reading for plenty of Christmas entertainment ideas to make your wedding day even more special…
Choose an Instrumentalist to play Christmas music during your Ceremony
Many couples opt for an instrumentalist, such as a Cellist, Violinist, Harpist or Pianist to perform at their wedding ceremony because let’s face it… there is nothing quite like a live performance! Adding ambient background music while guests are being seated and of course when you walk down the aisle can really make a wedding ceremony magical. If you are getting married around Christmas, why not choose some stunning instrumental Christmas songs? You could even keep your instrumentalist to perform during your drinks reception to get fantastic value for money. Click here and find an instrumentalist on our website – we have plenty to choose from!
Alternatively, why not hire a String Quartet for more Impact
Another fantastic choice when it comes to live instrumental music is to hire a String Quartet. These can be a little more expensive than a solo instrumentalist, however the sound the produce is simply magical. Consisting of two violin players, a cello player and a viola player a String Quartet can also perform instrumental versions of modern or Christmas songs. If you’d prefer classical for your ceremony and switch to Christmas tunes for your reception, this can be a lovely way to keep the Christmas theme going without intruding on your wedding vows.

Treat your Younger Guests and Hire a Santa Claus for Authenticity!
No Christmas wedding is complete without a Santa Claus and his appearance need not be tacky either! Imagine children at your wedding when Santa Claus appears during your wedding breakfast and surprises them with little gifts or tokens of affection. Hiring a Santa Claus could also make for some very fun and inventive wedding photography and give your reception a light-hearted and warm feel. This type of entertainment isn’t for everyone but we think it will certainly make your wedding feel a lot more festive like a Christmas Party! Find a Santa Claus and surprise everyone at your wedding breakfast or evening reception!
Add a touch of sparkle at your wedding breakfast with Carol Singers
Another fantastic idea for musical entertainment during your drinks reception or wedding breakfast is to hire carol singers to sing festive tunes while your guests mingle and chat among themselves. Perfect for while you are whisked away for your wedding photos, carol singers will most probably get all of your guests involved too in a chorus of Christmas carols! If you want to find Carol Singers for your wedding reception, click here and browse our listings on our entertainment directory.
Ask a Wedding Band to Perform Festive Hits at your Evening Reception
Once your reception begins and your evening wedding entertainment begins, you will most likely want to let your hair down and really enjoy the evening with your friends and family. If you are hiring a wedding band always check which songs they can play (also known as their repertoire) to see if they can cover any Christmas songs. There really is no more festive feeling than listening to Christmas music and if you wanted to, you could mix in popular chart songs as well to keep things fresh. Wedding Bands are very experienced in performing at weddings and will get everyone up onto the dancefloor! Click here to check out our massive selection of Wedding Bands and get booking!
