Wedding Entertainment Ideas – 5 Fun, Unique and Memorable Concepts

by | Jan 9, 2020 | Wedding | 0 comments

There’s so many wedding entertainment ideas to choose from!?

I’ll be honest, it’s a minefield right? There are so many different wedding entertainment ideas you can choose to entertain your guests – once you’ve whittled it down and decided you want, for instance, say a band… which band do you pick for your wedding entertainment?

As a wedding entertainer myself, performing at around 100 weddings alone every single year, I’ve been fortunate enough to see some of the UK’s best wedding entertainers at work. I wanted to make a small list of wedding entertainment ideas, therefore giving you a little insight into what the best options are, and who I’d personally recommend you book!

I must add… these people have not paid to be mentioned. I don’t receive any commission/kick back if you book any of these suppliers for your wedding entertainment. They’re simply amazing at what they do, and because of this, I have to tell you about them!!

Your wedding entertainment ideas in no particular order…

Wedding Magician

Okay, I’ll admit maybe I’m slightly biased, however a Magician is a fantastic wedding entertainment idea! It’s sure fire way to break the ice for guests who’ve never met before!

During the arrival drinks reception, guests are standing around making small talk… canapés can only keep guests entertained for a short while! You’ll be whisked away for your photographs, so who’ll be there to introduce your guests? Fear not – I’ll mix and mingle, bringing small groups together, and share some incredible sleight of hand and witty humour!

You’ll head off for photos knowing your guests have been left in safe hands! You can see more information about how I can make your special day magical and memorable by clicking here.

Have you found some wedding entertainment idea inspiration?

Whatever you decide to have for your wedding, importantly, make sure you do it your way! You only get married once, and you want to look back in years to come thinking that the wedding entertainment ideas you made were the right choice for you.

Be sure you read up all of your suppliers reviews, see pictures of them performing and watch videos of them in action. Weddings are very personal, so maybe even arrange to meet your suppliers for a coffee, or chat to them on the phone.

Finally, I hope you have a wonderful wedding day, and enjoy every second! Jamie X
