A wedding presents two people with the opportunity to celebrate their eternal love. There possibly isn’t a more legit way (in terms of religion and law) to party the night away. A great wedding starts with a tear-jerking vow exchange and ends with tearing up the dance floor, and of course with scrumptious food and cocktails thrown in the mix.
Are you getting married soon? You must be going through the gruelling motions of wedding planning. Lucky for you, we have got the entertainment covered. Carry on reading to discover our top wedding entertainment picks.
- Plan a parade
Take inspiration from a traditional New Orleans wedding, and plan an after-wedding parade for the whole party. Singing, dancing and walking along a band will create an unforgettable experience for your guests. It’s a great way to get everyone revved up for the wedding reception.
2. Get a photobooth
If you’re struggling to find wedding souvenirs and entertainment, kill two birds with one photo booth. An old-school photo booth is back in fashion, thanks to Insta-celebs. Your guests will have a blast clicking photos and taking printed keepsakes home.
If you’re looking for something modern, go for the newest photo booths. From 360-degree photo booths to slow motion photo booths, there are several options available that will create the best posts for your Instagram feed.
3. Book a live band
While a DJ busting out the popular tunes is enjoyable, there’s nothing as fun as dancing to a live band. For wedding entertainment in Dublin, you should hire a live band. From high-energy pop songs to old hits, you can tailor the repertoire to your wedding. Trust us, with a live band playing, there won’t be a single person sitting down at your wedding reception.
4. Hire singing waiters
Singing waiters serve delicious meals with a twist. Who doesn’t like their entrée with a side of harmonious melodies? We would suggest you book singing waiters for the morning brunch to get your guests in a celebratory spirit.
5. Hire a fortune teller
Hiring a fortune teller or a Tarot card reader is a huge trend in the wedding industry. It’s a unique and interactive activity for wedding guests.
6. Prepare a surprise performance
The best entertainment is unexpected. Take a cue from Youtube’s power couple Safiya and Tyler’s wedding. Like them, you can surprise your guests with a dramatic dance performance. They recreated the Gomez and Morticia Addams’ Tango, but feel free to perform whatever you want.
And the best part? You don’t have to spend a lot on hiring performers.
7. Karaoke sing-off
For the couple who loves to sing, a Karaoke themed wedding reception is the perfect way to keep your guests entertained. You can even make a competition out of it. And who doesn’t love belting out classic tunes after having a glass or two of bubbly!
8. Call a magician
Apart from being a popular choice for kid’s birthday parties, a magician is a stellar option for your wedding. Usually, there is time to kill after the ceremony and before the reception starts. During this time, a magician can blow your guests away with clever tricks.
9. DIY bar
Let the guests be their own entertainment with a DIY bar. You can set up a DIY cocktail bar, a hot chocolate stand or a flower crown station. It’s a delightful option to keep your guests engaged.
There’s nothing quite magical like looking at a fireworks display. Treat your guests with a spectacle of fireworks to end the night.
11. Caricature artist
Another way to combine wedding entertainment and mementoes is by hiring a caricature artist. Guests of all ages will thoroughly enjoy sitting for an exaggerated portrait.
We hope this post inspired you to do something unique for your upcoming nuptials. We wish you the best of luck!
