Five unique wedding entertainment ideas to make your big day stand out
Happy August, folks! We here at Tailored are deep into wedding season right now with bands, soloists, trios and DJs heading out across the UK and Europe performing at weddings in some of the most beautiful locations imaginable. Not to mention providing incredible corporate entertainment for some of the biggest corporate bookers in the country!
But this week we thought we’d turn our attention towards all you wedding planners scheming away for next year. You’re almost certainly spending a lot of time researching wedding entertainment ideas that will really set your big day apart, keep your guests happy and lend the perfect atmosphere to the happiest day of your lives. In a recent article, the wonderful website ‘hitched’ called wedding entertainment one of the toughest decisions you’ll have to make for your big day, and we couldn’t agree more.
Well look no further! We know a thing or two about genuinely unique wedding entertainment, and we thought we’d go ahead and share some of our favourite trends with you in this week’s blog. Cause we’re nice like that. So without further ado, here’s five ways to make your wedding entertainment truly unforgettable!
TURN YOUR WEDDING INTO A MUSIC FESTIVAL
We’ll start with the big one. But arguably the best. One of our most festival style wedding bands, Festival Nights, were recently booked for a wedding that’s been turned into full-on summer festival! With bands and musicians gracing the stage from straight after the wedding ceremony right into the night, this is a pretty epic way to entertain your guests at your wedding. If you love music, and the sound and vibe of an incredible summer festival, what could be better?
Maybe this feels a little large in scale for you? Well don’t worry! You can still have plenty of live music to set the tone of your big day. We can even help you to create a full wedding entertainment package, from ceremony music to headliner bands and late night DJs - head to our dedicated wedding entertainment ideas page to have a look at how we can help!
Here’s one with a very different vibe. Everyone loves a retro games arcade, and they can make a fun, quirky addition to your wedding day entertainment. We recently attended a wedding at the wonderful West Mill in Derby with a full bank of pinball machines to entertain their guests between the ceremony and reception. Companies like Retro Games Party will rent out an incredible array of games units at really competitive rates, too. So what are you eating for? Get gaming!
Here’s one that’s getting more an more popular by the month. Roaming bands are quietly becoming a favourite for wedding planners across the country, and it’s really not difficult to see why! Instead of the sticking to the stage, a roaming band will mingle amongst your guests playing amazing unplugged music directly to them. The show is high energy, interactive, and tonnes of fun. Our very own Wanderland Band have become one of the country’s most popular options for roaming entertainment, check out this testimonial from one ecstatic couple!
“Just a quick email to say the band were absolutely incredible, so we'd be grateful if you can pass our thanks onto them. They were perfect for our wedding and we had so much positive feedback from our guests (surely a few more bookings from that crowd in future!) they really created such a buzz and fun atmosphere and I'm sure that's what got everyone on the dance floor for our dj."
FIREWORKSGuys, listen. Everybody. Loves. Fireworks. It’s really that simple. Fireworks displays at weddings have been a big part of weddings in the US for a while now, and we’ve seen this awesome trend slowly crossing the Atlantic and cropping up in receptions throughout 2018. It’s an amazing way to top off your wedding day with a real sense of spectacle - just be sure to hire a great crew to do it for you, like the fantastic folks at Firework Crazy, who we saw do a stunning job at a recent wedding.
A KARAOKE BAND
Karaoke is cheesy, I hear you cry! Well that may be the case. But how about if you and your guests get to act as the frontman of your very own live band? Yup. Karaoke Bands are an insanely fun way to entertain your wedding guests, getting everyone up to sing one of their favourite tunes from the past four decades of pop music. Our very own Live Karaoke Band are the UK’s favourite live karaoke act, check out some of their promo below!
