Getting married is life-changing step in an individual’s life and it’s no time to skimp on the wedding entertainment. Depending on their values and personalities, couples opt for different types of wedding ceremonies.
Some go for a high profile wedding ceremony, while others stick to simple wedding plans and share the joy among their close relatives and friends. However, a good wedding ceremony is a memorable one. So to make it the most memorable day of their lives, people put a lot into their wedding ceremony, where it is becoming an accepted tradition to organize entertainment for the guests.
The very first thing that one can link with entertainment is, perhaps, music as it can set the whole mood and atmosphere of your reception. In terms of music, people tend to hire an energetic Wedding DJ with flashing party lights and a dance floor. Often the friends and the relatives of the couple spend days preparing for dance performances to show their happiness. It enables the party get started and encourage more family members to strut their stuff on the dance floor. In this case, making a list of songs for your DJ to play on the occasion is ideal; you may even start this weeks before the event.
Some people also go for hiring a live band to perform and to avoid disappointment bookings are made well in advance of the actual date.
Wedding Entertainment – What Else You Could Try
Many new and innovative ideas are becoming fashionable to entertain the guests at the wedding. These include arranging a wedding casino, where main aim is to allow guests to mingle with one another before and after the reception.
Wedding magicians are also becoming popular. Such a performance may consist of a magic show especially for guests, or they may entertain tables one at a time with close-up magic tricks.
I’ve seen kettle drum bands, trapeze artists and clowns. It all depends on what the happy couple want, and how adventurous they are!
Finally, food is a source of entertainment in itself.
Having variety of food and drinks makes the wedding complete. Create your own wedding menu which should be unique and according to the likes of your guests and they will feel the taste of your wedding days after it is over. However, one must be sure that whatever one plans it must be within the budget. Figure out your budget priorities and do a proper research about available options within the budget.
Match your wedding entertainment to your wedding style and make sure it reflects your personality.
