6 Ways To Keep Wedding Guests Entertained

By  | 

Entertainment is an essential element of any wedding – whether you want to keep guests entertained while you and your newly married partner are off taking stunning wedding photos, or have a little something to fill the lull just after the meal, we’ve got you covered.

Here are 6 ways to keep your guests entertained:

1. Get In On the Act

Do you have a secret guilty pleasure? Whether you love a bit of Michael Buble, could swoon over some Elvis, or boogie the night away to Abba, a tribute act is sure to entertain and bring a smile to the faces of all of your guests.

2. Say “Cheese”

Photo booths have taken the wedding industry by storm, and there’s a good reason – they’re loads of fun! Dressing up in props and posing for silly photos not only keeps guests thoroughly entertained (especially after a glass or two of bubbly), but is also a great way of making mementos of the day.

3. Hey Mr DJ

One of the most popular forms of wedding entertainment that has ever existed – a DJ. Other forms of entertainment are great to mix things up, but often won’t perform for as long as a DJ, or in to the wee hours to keep the diehard dancefloor lovers entertained. Give them a list of favourite tracks, and get the grownups to play a few games – “Agadoo” with the men of the Bridal Party in grass skirts, anyone?

4. Book a Band

If DJs aren’t your thing, you could opt for a live band instead. Music-loving couples (and guests) will really get a kick out of the passion of a live performance, and it means you can specify exactly what style of music you’d like to hear – Big Bands, 80s Motown, or Alternative Rock?

5. Atmospheric Acoustics

While you’re off capturing those fantastic shots with the photographer, time can move very slowly for your guests. However, if you leave them in a beautiful beer garden or wine bar with an acoustic performer, they will be incredibly content!

6. It’s a Kind of Magic

Guest young and old will be wowed by the talents of a magician, after all, everyone loves a good card trick! An excellent form of entertainment for after the meal, before the evening celebrations kick off.
