How are you going to make your wedding day stand out?
Being imaginative with your wedding planning can be tricky.
Whilst it can be difficult to think of things that haven’t been done before, you also need to make sure that your guests are suitably entertained.
The truth is: finding ‘unique’ wedding ideas is really, really easy.
There are hundreds of unusual and specialist wedding entertainers that can provide something different for your day… the trick is how you use them!
Once upon a time, wedding magicians, photobooths and fire performers were considered unique entertainment for weddings.
Now, they are more commonplace than ever because everyone uses them in the same recommended way.
Why be so basic with something so different? You can walk past a man literally eating fire or making playing cards disappear at a wedding these days, and not be phased!
Here are 10 wedding entertainment ideas that are highly unusual. Even better, we will show you how to use them in a creative way that we guarantee no one has ever seen before.
Time to think outside the (beat)box.
You can push the boundaries of live music at weddings with a beatboxing group to stun your guests. You can guarantee your guests will have never seen a professional beatboxer at a wedding before, or perhaps seen one at all!
2. Robot Photographer
Although a photo booth is technically a robot of sorts, we are talking about something else. This is smarter AI and state of the art photo technology.
Imagine you are at your drinks reception, when all of a sudden a 6 foot robot silently hums its way over to you and your friends, asking if you would like a selfie together and joining in the conversation with witty remarks.
Beep boop. It’s like a Black Mirror episode without all the ‘existential crisis’ stuff.
Real life human photographers – don’t worry.
You are talented folk and won’t be out of a job just yet, but you might have to get used to your robot companions taking some of the limelight!
3. LED Saxophone Light Show
What’s better than a saxophone?
An LED saxophone that also blasts out Co2 jets of dry ice and glows in the dark. That’s what.
Saxophonists are so in right now. They are adding so many features, it’s like a musical swiss army knife. At this rate, it won’t be long until you can control your heating and order a pizza from a saxophone (probably).
Adding UV paint, Xylobands and neon lighting to your Saxophone performance can take things to another level.
4. Silhouette Portraits
This one is actually still a bit baffling to us.
We are always blown away by the likenesses created by caricaturists and portrait artists at weddings and events.
However, creating a spitting image of someone with just a piece of paper and some scissors is just crazy. This is some next level artistry that makes for a unique souvenir keepsake!
5. Human Mirror Dancers
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the coolest of them all?
These shiny guys and gals were born to shine. Dancers are a really fun wedding entertainment idea, but this takes things to a whole other level.
If you are looking for something unique to add to your wedding then it is important to look at traditional ideas such as dancers, and then seeing what spin you can put on them.
6. Celebrity Lookalike
These guys will mess with your mind.
If you ever want to see an entire room double take in unison, hire a celebrity lookalike to make a surprise guest appearance at your wedding.
The most convincing lookalikes will come as such a shock to your wedding party and can make for incredible photo opportunities. These are photo ops that you just won’t get at any other wedding!
7. Mariachi Band
Get vibrant with your live music entertainment.
There is so much to take in with a Mariachi band. The exciting music, the wild dress sense, the huge hats and the wacky, oversized instruments.
8. Racing Simulator
There’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition.
Ignite a competitive spark in your guests with an arcade style racing simulator. If you are a geek at heart, it is a nice way of incorporating video games into your wedding day that your guests won’t have seen before!
9. Fire Performers
We mentioned these crazy folks at the beginning of the post.
Fire performers are awesome, and the element of danger definitely gets hearts racing.
A lot of fire shows involve music and are fixed routines. Providing you have the space, you can also have a roaming fire performance with a more ‘ambient’ feel. What can you do that people haven’t seen before though?
10. Mind Reader
Hiring someone to come to your wedding with the sole purpose of infiltrating your guests’ brains is pretty weird when you think about it.
There is something freaky about the metaphysical nature of someone crawling around inside your head and manipulating your thoughts!
When you see a wedding magician perform a card trick, it’s impressive for sure, but deep down you know that they’ve done some sleight of hand or misdirection of sorts. You are aware that you have been fooled in a way.
A mind reading performance is even more impressive – because you can’t explain it.
We’re full of good ideas and are always around to help and inspire you with your wedding entertainment.
