2018 Wedding entertainment trends
When you invite someone to your wedding you are asking them to be more than a guest at a party.
Your wedding should be one of the most memorable days of your life. For you and your other half, the day is the start of your life together as a married couple and you’ve chosen to share it with the people closest to you.
Now, whether you have 20 or 200 guests, you want them to have a memorable day and night. And one of the biggest parts of the day is the entertainment.
Long gone are the days when your guests would turn up and be happy with just dinner and a bit of dancing. More and more there is an expectation of something memorable.
And that can make you feel under pressure. But fear not, we’ve got you covered.
We’ve pulled together the hottest wedding entertainment trends to help you make the right choices for your guests, venue and of course yourselves.
First things first, start the day off right. If you want to make the day as fun-filled as possible for your guests then set the tone early on.
Change up the ceremony
Your ceremony might be traditional with a string quartet or organ. But that doesn’t mean your music has to be. Why not have your musician put a twist on it and play instrumental versions of your favorite songs. You could even surprise your guests with an impromptu performance from a surprise musical act before you walk down the aisle.
Next up is the food. The trend for relaxed dining continues and you could have a much more interactive and engaging meal with food stations or go even more relaxed with food trucks and prosecco vans!
Surprise dance break
Another option to really surprise and delight your guests is the first dance performance. You and your other half could be the headline entertainment by learning a dance routine. This will be even more impressive and entertaining if you are known to have two left feet!
Get the party started
And once you’ve got your guests in the mood to dance. Keep them on the floor!! A good DJ can feed of the mood in the room and provide your guests with the perfect songs to keep them dancing. They also know when to pump up the crowd and when to go quiet and let a special moment happen.
Something for the kids
Children, especially young ones, can find the whole reception quite boring. A bouncy castle, face painter or even some lawn games if your venue allows, will keep the kids entertained so you can make sure that mums and dads have a great night and take part in all the adult fun you have planned.
And finally, the modern guests demands more from their evening out. They want to experience something new and be thrilled by the unexpected.
One of the hottest entertainment trends for weddings is the Mirror Photo Booth from companies such as White Knight Entertainment. Not only does it capture your guests’ imagination, there’s also no better way to break the ice when you’ve got groups of all ages. And you will be surprised to see young and old, family and friends mingling and posing in front of the camera to take the perfect selfie.
Guests love how interactive the booths are and will love capturing the moment in a unique way. And if your budget doesn’t stretch to the full selfie mirror then try the latest innovation – the Halo Photo booth. This pared back version is suitable for smaller venues but gives hours of photo, boomerang and interactive fun.
