Planning a wedding has evolved beyond recognition in recent years. For many couples, wedding entertainment is now top of the list of planning priorities. It’s about carefully selecting the right performers to enhance the mood and set the tone for the day. It’s no longer about merely making noise to fill the evening, which is what was previously commonplace for wedding entertainment.

It’s complex and it’s exciting, as couples strive to have the standout bash to end all standout bashes. What was once a modest affair in church followed by a small gathering at the local golf club has transcended into lavish events taking place in listed country piles, filled with designer dresses and kitsch nick-knacks.

Entertainment in particular has well and truly began to skyrocket at weddings. Having a run of the mill mobile DJ simply doesn’t cut it anymore for many couples. They endeavour to make their special day as memorable for their guests as they can by adding fabulous touches and theatre that could compete with the very best parties.

Of course the main focus of theday remains the bride, groom and their wonderful new journey in life. The spectacular entertainment simply embellishes what is already an extraordinary day for numerous people. But with so much choice and competition, what kind of entertainment could you opt for to make your day even more perfect?

Unique wedding entertainment ideas include angelic tenors at your ceremony to create a feeling of total and utter goose bumps. Perhaps you could opt for a jazz band? They are a popular choice for many couples. A jazz band satisfies the entertainment needs of a whole range of groups; older guests can enjoy classic jazz songs, whilst younger guests can dance along to covers of modern hits. It’s a classic twist on the traditional DJ.

More interactive, ‘walk around’ entertainment such as a magician or a singing waiter always go down a treat. They stop any lull in proceedings and keep the guests entertained – plus make a brilliant talking point.

Weddings are a special day, filled with special memories. Make sure your wedding entertainment is just as special!
