From classical guitarists to walkabout trees, Warble Entertainment takes us through some of the best last minute entertainment ideas for a summer wedding.
If you’re getting married this summer, congratulations! Apart from being super excited you are likely to be feeling a little nervous around this time too. But don’t worry because that’s absolutely normal.
Most things should have already been booked and in place by now and you’re likely to just be totting up your final budget and going through the running order and making sure you haven’t forgotten anything. If you’re lucky enough to have some budget left over (well done you!) or you have gaps in your running order that you would like to fill, here are some perfect entertainment ideas.
With a warm and soulful sound, a saxophone will create the perfect atmosphere for any part of your big day. Whether you are looking for relaxed and sultry for the afternoon, or a lively, freestyle Ibiza style performance with your DJ for the evening – the Sax is extremely versatile so it’s no wonder it’s the most booked entertainment for weddings this summer!
Acoustic Solo or Duo
An acoustic solo or duo act will add a contemporary element to your day without being too intrusive on your overall theme. You can have them perform your favourite Ed Sheeran, Adele, or Bruno Mars hits during your ceremony, drinks reception, or wedding breakfast and they will seamlessly fit in whilst still making a big impression on your guests.
Have you finalised your table plan and realised you have a fair few guests that don’t know each other? A magician will mingle between your guests, help break the ice and provide a fantastic talking point to bring your family and friends together. Whether you book them for the drinks reception, wedding breakfast or evening reception they will stun and amaze your guests with their incredible skills.
The guitar is such a versatile instrument, meaning you can chose the style of music you prefer or cater it to each part of your day. For example, you could have classical music for your ceremony, jazz for your drinks reception and contemporary for your wedding breakfast. Whatever style you decide on, booking a classical guitarist for your wedding is guaranteed to provide the perfect ambience and an uplifting performance.
This works really well if you are having a garden or a marquee wedding and you’re looking for something to entertain your guests during the drinks reception. Not only will walkabout trees create fun and laughter amongst your guests, they can provide fantastic and unique photographic opportunities.
If you’re looking for something to help liven up the atmosphere and really get the party started then look no further. With their colourful costumes and vibrant sound a Mariachi band will instantly appeal and provide an exciting and unique experience your guests will never forget.
Booking a caricaturist can be a great idea for wedding favours. Maybe you decided against favours and now you’re regretting it? This act will not only keep your guests entertained at any point throughout proceedings it will also provide them with a lasting memento of your big day.
If you’re worried about not having enough ambience during your wedding day, booking an energetic and upbeat jazz band, duo or trio will create an informal and relaxed atmosphere whilst building excitement amongst your guests ready for the evening party.
