10 great ways to entertain your wedding guests

The Entertainment Group

Planning a wedding is fun and exciting but there are so many things to think about. Who will be in the wedding party? Will you have a theme? What kind of cake will you have?
With so many decisions to make, it can get a little overwhelming.

At The Entertainment Group, we love weddings. We might not be able to help you with all the decisions but if there’s one area we can help with, it’s planning your wedding entertainment.
We’ve put together a list of ideas to give you inspiration for your special day but first, you need to consider which parts of your day you need entertainment for:

  • Before the ceremony whilst guests are arriving
  • After the ceremony during the drinks reception
  • On arrival to the reception venue
  • During the professional photographs
  • During the wedding breakfast between courses
  • Between the wedding breakfast and the evening celebrations
  • On arrival of the evening guests
  • During the evening reception

Once you know when you need your entertainment, you can decide which type of entertainment will work best. Here are some of our most popular ideas for making your day extra special:

1. Champagne Dress

Champagne dresses are the perfect way to treat your guests to a welcome drink. The dress can be matched to your theme or colour and the skirt part holds glasses of champagne or a welcome drink of your choice. The dazzling model can serve drinks to your guests straight from her costume. Ideal for pre-ceremony drinks, on arrival to the reception or when the evening guests arrive.



2. Stilt walkers

Stilt walkers are popular with both adults and children. Costumes can be matched to any theme to tie in perfectly with your day. Stilt walkers can meet and greet guests on arrival at the venue or keep them entertained whilst you’re off getting your photos taken.




3. Magician Magicians

Magician Magicians can wow your guests with amazing tricks throughout the drinks reception, during photos or at their tables during the wedding breakfast. They are fantastic entertainers and will truly add some magic to your day.




4. Candy Carts

Candy carts are a popular choice for any event. They can be colour coordinated to your theme and dressed to your requirements. Choose your own selection of tasty treats from a wide variety of family favourites.





5. Photo Booth
