When you’re coming up with wedding entertainment ideas with your partner, you need to consider how many different moods a wedding can have.
The vows are all about poignancy, the speeches touch on nostalgia, and the dancing is for celebration. You also need to consider what’s going to impress, delight, and surprise your guests.
Silk Street handpicks acts from around the world, providing singers, dancers, and performers guaranteed to make an impact. Here are our 5 best alternative wedding entertainment ideas for your wedding.
1. Magicians that stun and amaze
Weddings can be a long day for everyone, particularly kids. If your nieces and nephews (and their parents!) are going to start flagging juts before the speeches, some sleight of hand is bound to perk them up.
Anyway, who doesn’t love a magic trick?
Silk Street has 7 expert magicians on the books, from “blink and you’ll miss him” Mr Tricks, to Magic Matt, who’s especially good at conjuring gasps.
2. Step back in time for a cabaret
If you and your partner have booked a beautiful period venue, what better accompaniment than period entertainment? Nothing jazzes up an event like classic cabaret singers and performers. They’re unlike any wedding entertainment your guests have seen before.
We have performers who can surprise, like Miss Ritzy and her bag of tricks. And world-class, soulful singers like Madam JoJo.
3. Singing Mâitre D’s
One minute your guests are being served their dessert, the next they’re treated to a full song and dance number by their ‘waiting staff’. The Singing Mâitre D’s are a wonderful surprise at any event, jumping up to perform and helping to fill the dance floor.
4. Caricature your guests
Give your wedding guests a souvenir they’ll always remember. Disposable cameras and little trinkets on the table are fun, but hiring a caricaturist is much more personal.
Our illustrators are fast, accurate, and experienced. One of our finest, Top Draw, will mix with your guests, sketch them, and give them a take-home memento they’ll always treasure.
5. Put on a huge show with professional dancers
If you’re still trying to come up with wedding entertainment ideas, we think we’ve got exactly what you need.
Nothing gets a party started like dancers. We have Bollywood beauties, Rio-esque carnival acts, traditional Ceilidh dancers, and even 1920s flappers. Your guests will love them, and so will you!
