When you’re at a wedding, once the ‘I do’s’ have been said, everyone turns their thoughts to the reception. And an important part of making sure everyone has a great time is the entertainment. Whether you’re looking for a live band or a show stopping magician, there’s something out there to suit every wedding and budget.
Take a look at our ideas for reception entertainment…
Live music: – Whether you like live, laidback jazz or cheesy pop tunes, a live band is the best way to get people up and dancing at your wedding. When choosing a band, think about what will suit the venue and theme of your wedding, but don’t forget that it’s your day, so you can have whatever you want!
Arrange a Ceilidh: – This traditional Scottish dance is great for any wedding as it gets guests of all ages up on the dance floor. Just be prepared to work up a bit of a sweat!
Hire a casino: – Bring out the inner gambler in your guests by hiring a casino table complete with croupier. Print pictures of the bride and groom onto some fake money and see who ends up a millionaire by the end of the night. Guests will also be able to keep the money as a memento of your big day.
Invite a magician: – Having a magician is a great way to entertain your guests before and during the meal. Getting people involved in tricks at their table is always sure to amaze. Or, why not go all out and employ an illusionist to dazzle your guests after dinner?
Install a photo booth: – Photo booths are becoming increasingly popular at wedding receptions. Fill one with fancy dress outfits, hats, scarves and outrageous wigs and you’re sure to take home some memorable photos.
Start the Karaoke: – Karaoke might seem like a cheesy idea for a wedding but once the drinks are flowing, it’s a great way to get people talking, laughing and dancing. Just remember that you’ll probably be expected to sing!
Whatever entertainment you choose, taking out wedding insurance means that your reception is covered as well as your wedding. And you should be able to adjust your level of cover to make sure that everything is protected. So, once your insurance is in place, you can relax and enjoy planning your reception and the rest of your wedding.
