When planning your wedding, it’s not just your own enjoyment that has to be considered. Keeping your guests entertained throughout the day is just as important. Your wedding reception in particular should provide the perfect opportunity for you, your new husband or wife, and your guests to let their hair down.
With a range of wedding entertainment options to explore, however, adding the quirky touches that make your wedding day memorable is getting more and more difficult. Weddings should be full of unforgettable moments. Make sure your reception is a celebration that your guests will never forget with these great wedding entertainment ideas.
Let the games begin
Games are great additions to any wedding reception, whether you’re hosting a collection of lawn games outdoors or setting up a games room inside your wedding venue. As well as being an excellent choice for breaking the ice among guests who’ve never met before, games will add a playful twist to weddings of all styles and themes. Images of guests getting involved in games will also enhance the fun factor of your wedding album.
As our recent wedding games guide explored, there are a number of interactive options to choose from. Many couples even incorporate games that are personal to them for a truly tailor-made result.
Add a creative touch
For arty couples looking to express their love for all things creative at their wedding, hiring a caricaturist is a great touch. As well as providing your guests with the most unique wedding favours, your caricaturist can provide an excellent distraction at your reception as Confetti explains:
“The best time to book a caricaturist for a wedding is during the drinks reception. The photographer usually kidnaps the Bride and Groom at this point and so keeping your guests entertained means you can be guilt free and make sure you take your time to get the perfect shots. Another good time is at the start of the evening reception – especially if you have extra guests coming along who didn’t attend the daytime. A caricaturist will help break the ice and bring both parties together. As previously mentioned though, caricaturists are an extremely versatile form of wedding entertainment and so will happily fit into any part of your day.”
Among our recommended services you’ll find Drawn 4 U, a talented caricaturist who has been a part of several wedding days hosted here at Leez Priory.
Let music be your guide
These days your entertainment options go far beyond hiring a DJ that will just press play on your wedding song list. There’s a plethora of great live music options available to hire, meaning your guests can be thoroughly entertained by a musician or band that you and your bride or groom loves.
Snap your guests happy
The photo booth is no new wedding entertainment option but it’s still an excellent choice for brides and grooms looking to entertain guests of all ages. When hiring a photo booth, remember, it’s all about the props. Make sure the company you choose provides a vast selection of items and printing options. The photos created by your guests are great keepsakes whilst the copies can also be used to jazz up your wedding album further.
Be inspired by food and drink
We supply candy cars, ice cream trikes and cocktails, food and drink inspired options that are all extremely entertaining. Thanks to these entertainment additions, guests are able to create their own concoctions or sample a creation that the bride and groom have crafted and named after themselves.
Make your wedding magical
Ideal for entertaining guests young and old, a wedding magician is a fantastic addition to either your wedding breakfast or reception. Your wedding magician will work the room, providing entertainment to each and every member of your guest list. Looking for a wedding magician to add some sparkle to your upcoming wedding?
