Top Wedding Entertainment Ideas for 2018

The New Year is upon us! And with it comes a whole host of fresh proposals and a clatter of Weddings in the making.

Last month we saw that there is increasing focus and budget spend on Wedding Entertainment. So with that in mind we have produced a list of what are set to be the most popular choices in wedding entertainment for 2018.

#1 Live Bands

Still coming out on top for entertainment at any event. You simply can’t beat a live band for entertainment value!

Gone are the days of the cheesy Wedding Band. The industry is now bursting with incredibly talented acts of every genre and style you can think of.

And it’s said to be one of the highest Wedding priorities today. So it’s wise to do your band hunting early to ensure you manage to lock down your favourite.

#2 Selfie Mirrors and Photo Booths

Photo Booths have not yet lost their edge either. Although we are increasingly seeing a decline in the use of props… and the industry has also progressed to more of an open plan style than a booth.

Selfie Mirrors are a rapidly growing trend. And guests are said to love them! After all, what alcohol fuelled occasion doesn’t inspire a whole lot of pouting and giddy selfie action?!

#3 Undercover Singers & Flash Mob Dancers

There is no better way to surprise your guests than the excitement of Secret Singers.

Imagine you’re sitting through your Wedding Breakfast when all of a sudden the Hotel Manager rushes into the room ranting and raving… Watch as your guests stare in shock as he abruptly bursts into Operatic song.

Flash Mob Dancers are another great alternative style of entertainment. The Thriller Wedding Flash Mob Dance has been hugely popular… check it out on YouTube.

#4 Fire Breathers, Jugglers & Static Trapeze

Moving towards the edgier styles of entertainment… Fire Breathers are a fantastic way to shake up the traditional Wedding.

Everybody wants their special day to stand out and this is certainly one way to ensure that it does just that!

Your guests will be amazed by the stunning displays of this alternative style of entertainment, which will add some lesser seen cultural sparkle to your occasion.

#5 Caricaturists

A Caricaturist is a fantastic way to amuse your guests before the Wedding Breakfast.

Like a prolonged selfie experience but with 10 times the charm and with added hilarity.

Something your guests can take home and treasure as the most personal type of Wedding Favour anyone could ever expect.
