When trying to decide on the entertainment you want for your wedding reception there is always the option to theme it, or, think of a style that suits your personalities and interests.
Whether you choose a band or DJ, having music for any wedding is an essential part. So, if you’re into jazz music, hire a jazz band, or, if you’d prefer a DJ check that they are happy to work to playlists to make sure your tastes are catered for. Think about you and your likes and dislikes.
*TOP TIP* It’s always worth thinking about your guests as well and what they may enjoy. Weddings normally consist of a pretty wide age range and can span a good few generations so a band performing only modern music may not be the best suited. If you can find a compromise between what you would love and what will work for the majority as well… you’re onto a winner 😀
However, if you are bold enough and want to go for something different why not go for a fully theme-inspired reception? You could try a 1920’s theme with everyone doing the Charleston and dressed as flapper dancers and dapper gents, or, maybe hire a steel band to put the finishing touches to a Caribbean-inspired reception. The possibilities are endless and whatever your theme there is bound to be entertainment to suit.
Remember, there is no rule that says entertainment for a wedding must be confined to the stage! You can hire a magician to amaze your friends and family, a caricaturist to have everyone in stitches with funny drawings, or, hire a comedian to perform during the band’s interval. A hilarious walkabout act or professional comedian will keep your guests attentive and your wedding reception will be remembered for years to come.
These are just a few wedding entertainment ideas that might help you think about the kind of direction you may go in. But, the possibilities are endless…
