Innovative ideas for wedding entertainment.

A well-thought out wedding includes more entertainers than just a band or DJ. Lit up your festivity from just another wedding to an event that will stand out in the minds of your friends and family for years to come by choosing additional unique wedding entertainment. Your options are nearly endless, and there are vendors in nearly every city that can offer anything you can desire

Make your reception truly memorable with outstanding wedding entertainment ideas. Your guests will never forget your special day when it includes such fun entertainers . Some ideas are:

Close-up or cabaret magicians – bringing a little magic to your new marriage
Fire performers – heat up the party
Hula-hoop dancers – ideal for a beach wedding
Lawn games – lovely wedding entertainment for an outdoor afternoon wedding
Photo booth – doubles as wedding gifts
Pony rides – keep the kids busy
Photo and video shows – take a walk down memory lane
Caricature artist  – a fun favor for guests
Silhouette artist – a lovely gift that can become an heirloom
Celebrity look-alike – invite your favorite actor, musician, athlete or politician
Belly dancers – hypnotize guests with these slinky moves
Salsa dancers – provide lessons afterwards
Tarot card reader  – see the future
Dueling pianos – great for guest participation
Sky lanterns – a beautiful sendoff
Jugglers – keep kids entranced
Karaoke – guests serenade you

select a mix of wedding entertainment that will make guests not just ooh and ah, but also allow them to get involved. After watching the hula dancers, for example, provide and instructor to teach your guests to do the traditional Polynesian dance themselves. Kids can light sparklers during the fireworks display.

You don’t have to go a traditional path with a standard band or DJ, either. To give your reception a fun feel, go with wedding entertainment such as a zydeco band, salsa band, 80’s heavy metal cover band, or anything else high energy that will bring a smile to the faces of your guests. Ask guests to include the name of their favorite songs on their RSVP and play them during the reception.

Other types of wedding entertainment can be conversation starters during your cocktail hour. Ask guests ahead of time to provide you with copies of their wedding pictures and advice for a happy marriage and post them around your venue. Have loved ones write down wishes for you on slips of paper and drop them in a wish jar. Provide trivia questions on index cards at cocktail tables and see who knows you as a couple the best, giving a prize for the highest score. Provide activities that keep guests having fun without becoming contrived.

No matter what kind of wedding entertainment you opt for , make sure you sign a clear contract that spells out the responsibilities of each party so all you need to care about on your wedding day is enjoying yourself! Sit back with your guests  and watch the fireworks display, magician, fire eaters, and artists create the most entertaining event your guests have ever attended!
