Britain has a serious case of wedding fever right now. Another member of the Royal Family has announced he’s set to tie the knot, and whilst we’ve always been a country that’s loved to celebrate nuptials, the Prince’s imminent marriage has injected a new lease of life into our lust for wedding ceremonies. If you’re planning your own special day, you might be tempted to turn to Harry and Meghan’s wedding to stir up some inspiration. But what if we told you that it was easy to book mesmerising wedding entertainment ideas that even the Royals would be impressed by?
A dazzling range of wedding entertainment ideas right here at Silk Street
Let us give you a glimpse….
Is that who I think it is?
You might not have quite the same friendship circle as a pair from Buckingham Palace, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a jaw-dropping guestlist. By booking a lookalike for your special day, you can trick attendees into thinking A-List celebs have shown up to bid you congratulations. The likes of David Beckham will slip in seamlessly within the crowd, and you can watch in glee as guests do double takes and rush for photos!
The perfect draw
Pictures and portraits keep your wedding immortalised. Alongside the main wedding photo shoot, it’s also worth recruiting a professional sketcher to doodle the special day as it ticks by. These illustrators and caricaturists can rapidly squiggle incredible images of invitees, leaving them with their own little memento of a fabulous day.
When you spot your wedding guests gawping with glee, it really is a sight to behold. An outstanding magician can work their magic around the room, leaving attendees slapping their foreheads in astonishment. These tricksters are ideal wedding entertainment ideas for warming up the crowd before speeches, and are equally adept at keeping people entertained over dinner.
Dance, dance, dance
For those who want to give their guests an excuse to twist their limbs on the dancefloor, the perfect solution is to hire a wedding band or wedding singer – musicians who cater specifically for these occasions. Whilst wedding function bands and vocalists are sure to kick the celebrations into life, there’s also an opportunity to thrill your guests during the meal by hiring singing waiters. These pros will masquerade as ordinary servers before abruptly bursting into song, performing routines that never fail to get the party going.
Laughing all the way home
Another fine addition to any wedding is a superb performance by a professional comedian. There are all types of comics available for hire; some who get up on stage and deliver one-liners that light up the room, and others who roam around and crack jokes that leave people in stitches. You’ll be grinning ear to ear on your wedding day, and with a comedian, all your guests will be too!
You can book any of the above and more at Silk Street – your number one choice for wedding entertainment in Manchester, London or anywhere else in the UK! Browse our acts or get in touch with our helpful team for more information.
