UNIQUE WEDDING RECEPTION ENTERTAINMENT IDEAS
Unique ideas to keep your wedding guests entertained while you’re having those all-important photographs taken
When considering entertainment for your wedding, arguably it’s more important to keep your guests entertained throughout the day, when they’re more likely to be waiting around whilst you’re off having photographs taken, compared to the evening reception.
There are plenty of options to choose from but it is important that you research what is right for your day in terms of style and budget. Below, we’ve provided a few popular ideas to give you a head start when it comes to choosing unique entertainment.
Interactive wedding guest book
Rather than have your guests sign a traditional style wedding guest book, consider hiring an interactive wedding book specialist where guests can record their message for you, rather than write it. Fun for all and something that your wedding guests may not have seen before.
Marryoke wedding videos are typically acted out by the newlywed couple and the bridal party – but if you’re looking for a unique idea to get all of your guests involved and having fun during your wedding reception, Marryoke could be your answer. Choose the perfect song and perhaps pre-warn your guests, so that they can start to familiarise themselves with the song.
The idea of hiring a celebrity look-alike isn’t for everybody but it is a good way of guests breaking the ice and provides an interesting twist to your reception. From Johnny Depp charming the ladies to David Beckham serving your drinks, you have plenty of options to choose from that will fit in with the rest of your day. Guests will certainly enjoy taking a selfie with their favourite A-lister!
A unique and fun form of entertainment is the caricaturist. Have an artist sketch a comic likeness of your guest in roughly 5 – 10 minutes and they’ll have a keepsake from the day and will talk about it for the rest of the night! Other guests will get curious and watch the caricaturist work his magic.
