With Christmas and New Year celebrations a distant memory, and with the end of the winter (finally) in sight, we can all start looking forward to the first flowers of spring, the warmer months and those long summer nights!
One thing that the spring/summer months also bring is the wedding season! I’m lucky enough to be on the guest list for a couple of weddings this year, but one thing my bride and groom-to-be friends tell me is that the entertainment aspect of their wedding is a bit of a sticking point.
Many head down the traditional route with a DJ and some special lighting effects, many others take it up a notch and hire a high-class wedding band like Vibetown to get everyone up on their feet. But others want something a little different, but aren’t sure what to look into.
Well, here you’ll find a few wedding day entertainment ideas that will add an extra special touch to your big day.
Bring all the fun of the fair
Why not introduce a country fair or village fete theme to your wedding as part of the entertainment? If you’re already hiring a marquee then why not step it up a gear? Be generous with traditional style bunting and then add some fresh flowers to give it all an authentic look. Hire some small traditional style stalls and create a coconut shy, a hoopla game, tin can alley or even darts!
If a village fete style wedding doesn’t do it for you but you’re still having your wedding outdoors, then why not consider some giant outdoor games? Outdoor skittles, a giant snakes and ladders game, a huge chess game, connect four game or jenga? These are brilliant for keeping your younger guests entertained too.
