Get guests involved and book a Karaoke DJ!

You may notice that booking a Party DJ is quite a popular choice for many couples but that doesn’t mean that it has to be boring and traditional!  A good twist on the Wedding DJ is the Karaoke DJ.  This entertainment option is a good choice if you, as a couple, like karaoke.  A Karaoke DJ will not only play popular songs from all eras in a similar way to a traditional DJ but will also throw in a number of Karaoke versions for guests who volunteer to sing.  There is nothing more fun than watching a Groom serenade his bride during their wedding reception! 

What about hiring a Tribute Band for evening entertainment?

Another fantastic alternative idea for wedding evening reception is to hire a Tribute Band.  One of the main benefits of hiring a Tribute Band is that you can choose a band which represents you as a couple, and there is a massive selection to choose from!  A Tribute Band will perform live music which adds atmosphere to any wedding and will not only perform songs like their muse, but attempt to look like them too.  Some popular choices for alternative Tribute Bands include Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden or if you are looking for something with a vintage feel, why not check out a 1940’s or 1950’s Tribute Band?

Book a Close-Up Magician to help Break the Ice!

Our next suggestion for wedding entertainment has become a lot more popular in recent years, but is an entertainment idea that not everyone would automatically think of for weddings.  Hiring a Close-Up Magician gives you great flexibility, in that they can perform during the quieter parts of your wedding breakfast, during your drinks reception or even in the evening.  They perform illusions and tricks using small objects such as playing cards, coins and bank notes which keep guests guessing and wanting to learn how to perform magic themselves!  The main benefit of hiring a Close-Up Magician is that as they move around the room performing to small groups of guests they attract attention of other guests and get people talking.

For a fun Wedding Breakfast, Book Comedy Waiters

If you want the last laugh at your wedding breakfast and you want to put on entertainment that will stop everyone getting bored, we highly recommend booking Comedy Waiters who will infiltrate your authentic waiters and cause chaos!  From dropping plates, stealing guests’ food and even changing lightbulbs, Comedy Waiters are clumsy and annoying.  Your guests will assume that you are having a terrible experience, until the suspicion gets too much and they either guess that the whole event has been a set-up, or you announce that they have been fooled!
