Whilst certain traditions for a wedding tend to remain very similar there are specific areas where you can make your own mark on the day and express your own unique personality. One area where you can really make a change felt is with your entertainment.
Believe it or not, but some couples spend more on the invitations than they do on the evening entertainment! Whilst we agree that invitations are important, they do not really have the ability to make or break the day. And, that is just how important the entertainment can be! Think about the last wedding you went to… can you remember the whole meal or the favours? Or, can you remember having a dance to some classic tunes with all your friends?
But what can be done to make the entertainment unique and unusual?
Unique Musical Ideas
Well, we all know how important music is to a wedding. From the initial aisle walk to the last dance of the night, music is woven through all aspects of the day. At the very least a couple will have a DJ perform and these days more are opting for a live wedding band.
Your choice of band or the music your DJ plays can be a great starting point to expressing yourself and adding some quirky uniqueness to your special day. If you are a rock chick or a biker dude then why not ask the DJ to play tunes from your favourite heavy metal bands? Or, if you’re an indie fan hire a band that play predominately indie music. Or, if you are having a boho wedding or paying homage to a style of days gone by you could always have a look at a Charleston band or a jazz band.

Unusual Walkabout Acts
Entertainment of a non-musical variety can also be used during the drinks reception or the photographs. This can be a really good time to get your guests chatting to one another by giving them a focal point such as a magician or a caricaturist. For something slightly more off-the-wall why not consider a silhouette artist or a living statue? Whilst you’re off having a gazillion photos taken it’s nice to know that your guests are still being entertained and not just hanging around.
If you are a music lover though and want to keep the tunes flowing throughout the whole day you could consider a laid back jazz band or an acoustic duo at this part of the day also.
Entertainment at this part of the day really sets a fantastic tone with your guests and puts them at ease with each other and in the right mood for the evening celebrations.

A Big Finalé (Quirky of Course!)
For real wow moments many couples hire fireworks. But, why not make it more interactive and hire a fire performer or two… or three… or seven!? Fire performers are happy to meet and greet guests, interact, juggle, fire breath, fire hula hoop and create a fantastic pyrotchnic end to the show (the pyrotechnic ending gives you the feeling of being inside a firework!)… along with banter from the performers, it is fantastic value, and again, something different.
