Choose a Wedding Band for the Perfect Atmosphere!

For the ultimate performance at your wedding evening reception, why not choose a live band who will perform popular hits from a variety of eras.  Each Wedding Band will have their own repertoire of music that they can play, so it is always worth asking them to see exactly what they can offer.  If there is a specific song you would like for your first dance, you could enquire to see if they can learn it, however this may incur an additional cost.  Want to find a Wedding Band near you for your own beautiful big day?  Click here to browse our selection right now!

Get more Variety with the help of a Wedding DJ

If you would like to keep things simple, yet offer your guests a much wider variety of music, why not choose a Wedding DJ?  A Wedding DJ will be able to offer a bigger selection of music because they don’t need to learn each song and only have to license them.  A wedding DJ also offers banter between your guests and will happily make announcements such as your entry into the room and announcing your first dance.  Click here to find a Wedding DJ to perform a wide variety of tracks and get your guests dancing on the dancefloor!

Make memories with a Caricaturist who will sketch your guests

Although hiring a Caricaturist is a popular choice for wedding breakfast or drinks reception entertainment, there are no set rules against hiring one for your wedding evening reception.  A Caricaturist will sketch you and your guests in a matter of minutes and always add a comical element, emphasising their features such as hair, noses and eyes.  Each guest can take away their sketch as a little memento of your wedding day and you could even get your own framed for the perfect memory!  Check out all of the available Caricaturists listed on our entertainment directory.

Hire a Close-Up Magician to add some Sparkle and Magic to your Wedding!

Choosing entertainment for your wedding is quite a daunting task, however one thing to consider is the interactivity aspect.  Interactive entertainment offers the perfect ice-breaker and will get groups of guests talking among themselves.  Performing illusions and sleight-of-hand tricks with small objects such as coins, playing cards and bank notes, a Close-Up Magician will keep your guests entertained and will definitely give them something to talk about.  Find a Close-Up Magician to perform and get your guests interacting at your very own wedding.

Keep Children Entertained with the help of a Balloon Modeller

Although many children will be happy with dancing on the dancefloor, it might be a good idea to put on entertainment specifically for them to help keep them entertained.  Choosing a Balloon Modeller will offer entertainment which is not only quiet, but clean too and will keep younger children occupied while animals, hats and flowers are all moulded out of balloons.  Some older children might even get to try their hand at balloon modelling themselves!  Browse our entertainment directory to find a Balloon Modeller right now!
