How to plan a wedding that’s full of fun
From magicians to bouncy castles we’ve got some great entertainment ideas that your guests are sure to enjoy.
When it comes to planning a wedding, finding the right entertainment is absolutely key. And we’ve got some great ideas to help set you on the right track.
Party magicians have come on a long way from pulling rabbits out of hats and sawing reluctant volunteers in half. Today’s magicians are truly impressive with a range of mind-bending tricks that are sure to wow and confound your guests. Hire one to visit all the tables in between courses, or to circulate during the drink’s reception. It’s a great way to keep people entertained during natural lulls, and is an excellent conversation starter, helping your guests mingle and get to know each other.
If you’re lucky enough to have a wedding venue with some great outside space, take full advantage with some fun garden games. Giant Jenga, giant Connect 4, and croquet are always really popular and, if you have the space, you could instigate some childhood games of British Bulldogs and Red Rover, or even organise a roster of activities based on childhood school sports days. Egg and spoon race anyone?
We all know that children love a bouncy castle – but why should they have all the fun? Give your guests the chance to indulge their inner child by setting up a bouncy castle at your wedding venue. It’s a fantastic addition to a summer wedding and your older guests are sure to enjoy it just as much (if not more so) as the younger ones. What’s more, it will make for some fantastic wedding photos!
Your favourite tunes
Every wedding needs some tunes to help get the party started, whether you opt for the atmosphere of a live band, the versatility of a wedding DJ, or choose to keep costs down with a homemade playlist, a docking station and some speakers. Why not get your guests involved by asking them to suggest a song when they RSVP? That way you can be sure that the dancefloor will stay full all night long.
If you’re looking for something a little different to a band or DJ, why not opt for karaoke and get your guests to do some of the hard work? Everyone loves a bit of karaoke, whether they prefer to strut their stuff on stage or to sit back and watch others have a go, and it’s sure to add some light-hearted fun to proceedings. You could even give your guests the feel like stars for the night with live band karaoke.
A spectacular event needs a spectacular finish, and what could be more spectacular than gathering all your guests outside for an impressive fireworks display. It provides you with a romantic finale to your special day that is sure to impress your guests.
