Your nuptials should be the happiest day of your life. You get to celebrate devoting yourself to your soulmate in front of your nearest and dearest. This is the start of the most exciting chapter of your existence, and you want to get it right. You and your partner are the two most important people for that one day, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t want to ensure that your guests have a good time. While the ceremony very much focuses on you, you want your evening entertainment to ensure that your guests enjoy themselves and have a special experience. Take a look at these three sure fire ways to entertain your guests.
A Live Band
While a DJ might be the simplest form of musical entertainment, a live band can really fire up the dancefloor. Remember, this is still your day, so consider the sorts of musical genres that resonate with you and are special to you as a couple. You might love the swinging sixties, a spot of Motown or even some 1990s Britpop. Whatever your taste in music is, you can secure the services of a professional tribute or covers band that will play all of the classics. These expert musicians will get your guests in the dancing mood and will enliven the atmosphere of your wedding reception.
While you will have a photographer candidly snapping away at your guests, there are other ways to create visual memories of your big day. By hiring an open photo booth for your evening reception, you can catch your guests at their happiest. Using fun props, groups of your pals can enter the booth to create an array of funky and hilarious tableaux for your perusal when you get back from your honeymoon. Catching your nearest and dearest at their happiest on your special day is well worth capturing in print.
Forget a buffet or a sit-down meal that can stagnate the vivacious nature of your evening soiree, why not consider another form of grub for your hungry guests come the evening time. You might fancy a hog roast for the theatrics and the ease of whipping up a pork roll for your guests to enjoy. Alternatively, you might want to select a cuisine that you adore as a couple and hire a mobile caterer to attend your reception. Often they are based within funky little horseboxes or Citroen vans making for an aesthetically pleasing dining experience.
Often hotels and venues will have a list of suggested caterers. These are well worth a look at as the venue will have vetted the culinary delights to ensure the highest quality food. You might even go retro with a pick ‘n mix bar or an ice cream van for your guests enjoyment.
Your wedding will inevitably be the most stressful yet the most enjoyable day of your life. Ensure that your guests also remember the day for all the right reasons and you can capture the memories that will last you a lifetime.
