Unusual Wedding Entertainment

Written by    Last updated: August 2, 2014

Fancy a magician at your wedding? Stuck of the tired old covers bands? With summer in full swing and wedding season well upon us, the sound of the same songs at each event is beginning to seem a little clichéd. Now, there is nothing wrong with a bit of Mustang Sally and New York, New York, but couples who want to make sure their guests have an amazing and memorable time should think about laying on something different. So, get inspired this summer with Finesse Entertainment and pick some unusual wedding entertainment to make the day the most remarkable of the year.

Las Vegas Casino night

Ideal for all those poker hounds out there, a Las Vegas Casino Night will definitely be remembered by all comers. Whether either one of the couple is actually big on gambling or not, the chances are the guests will have a blast at the roulette tables and shouting the odds at the craps table. For anyone who secretly wants a Vegas wedding, this is a little touch of the neon lights without all the cost and hassle of actually heading to the Nevada city.

For the couple that wants to pull the rabbit from the hat and surprise their guests, there is little better than a magician to steal the show (and a few watches along the way). They can perform on stage for a set like a band, or they can mingle among the guests throughout the evening.

Steel Bands

A little touch of the Caribbean never goes amiss, especially on a hot summer’s day in England. Whether the sounds of the steel drums are a taste of home or of the exotic, most people will feel the rhythm. It’s just impossible not to have an amazing time once they get going.

Fancy Dress Wedding

This takes a little bit of daring and a strong personality to pull it off, but it’s definitely worth it. From Disney to Jane Austen, Goth to James Bond, there is a practically limitless array of fancy dress themes couples with a penchant for dressing up can indulge themselves in. Guests can be invited to join in, while the reception can be funked up to go with the theme. Music, food and entertainment can all match.

Blues brothers tribute

For the ultimate high energy wedding reception, there is nothing to beat a Blues Brothers tribute. WIth classic songs and and their inimitable look, everyone will be up dancing by the end of the first song. And while it’s not necessary to dress up like Jake and Elwood, but it sure is fun.
