We all have seen the traditional wedding reception entertainment: a good DJ or one of the best wedding bands that can create a special atmosphere. For couples that want to go beyond the traditional wedding entertainment, there are a number of unexpected (and fun) wedding entertainment ideas that can take your wedding day over the top. (If you want more unique ideas, contact us. We’ll find the perfect wedding entertainment for your ceremony and reception.)
Your union is a magical experience; why not share that sentiment with your guests? Hire a magician to entertain your youngest guests in a separate room, or to fill time between your dinner and wedding reception.
An artist is an unexpected wedding entertainment idea that is perfect for a formal or a picnic wedding. A wedding artist can give you a memento of your big day that you can hang on your wall forever. At a picnic wedding, an artist can face paint your young—and more experienced (adult)—for fun wedding photos that you’ll have for years to come.
If you want fun outdoor wedding entertainment, crack out the traditional yard games: corn hole, lawn dice, tic tac toe (on steroids), ring toss, outdoor bowling, etc. Put out yard games to keep your guests entertained before your band takes over, or contact an entertainment agent for entertainers to create a fun carnival atmosphere at your wedding. (Remember, due to our unpredictable Midwestern weather, make sure you have a plan B.)
Nothing beats a hayride at a rustic wedding venue. It’s the perfect entertainment for all your guests, both young and old. One tip: make sure your hayride is safe, and your venue has adequate insurance for the occasion.
For a fun Mexican or beach-themed wedding, hire a Mariachi band to make your guests feel like they’re on vacation. To enhance the theme, add a piñata to your list of wedding entertainment ideas to enhance your wedding atmosphere.
Lawn bowling or a venue with classic bowling options…you’re guests’ll always remember your union as a strike!
To establish your theme before your guests enter, hire statement entertainers to greet your guests and circulate through the crowd. Ask your entertainment agent about entertainers specific to your theme, such as flappers and gangsters for your vintage event.
