When it comes to your wedding day, it’s only natural to want to make sure everything’s perfect – ensuring your wedding guests are guaranteed a great time.

Great wedding entertainment can play a huge part in the success of your big day, and we don’t mean your dad’s questionable dance moves! With such a wide range of options, choosing the right entertainment to suit your wedding can be tough. To make things a little easier, we’ve put a list together of our favourite wedding entertainment ideas:

Wedding dance

Live music

For the ultimate wow factor, why not look into hiring a live band, musician or singer for your big day? There are plenty of cheesy tribute acts, wedding bands, musicians and singers around that can serenade you through the reception – from your first dance to the last. While live music provides plenty of wow-factor, it can be expensive – and is often charged by the hour. Make sure you go with someone reputable that is going to be worth the extra cash. Also remember that most live acts only play for a limited period, so you may still need to factor in a wedding DJ to keep the party going late into the night!


Why not add a bit of sparkle and wow your guests with a magic act? There are plenty of different acts to choose from, whether it’s illusions or card tricks – it’s guaranteed to keep younger guests entertained and is a wonderful way to keep people occupied between the drinks reception and the wedding breakfast.

Another fantastic way to get your guests up and dancing is to bring in some interactive entertainment to your reception with a dance act. These professional dancers will not only perform for you, but they will get everyone up on their feet dancing, especially the bride and groom. Whether you’re into ballroom dancing or Irish folk, there are plenty of styles to choose from.

Photo booths

Let your guests make their own memories of the day and hire a freestanding photo booth. These are a real hit at weddings and parties alike, and are a great way to get your guests interacting and having some fun. When hiring a photo booth, make sure it comes with plenty of comedy props and hats so people can get really creative!


Or why not make your own entertainment with some karaoke? It doesn’t matter if you fancy yourself as the next X-Factor winner or leave people reaching for the ear plugs, laughs all around are guaranteed. Karaoke is a great option if you’re on a budget, letting your guests sing the night away.

Whichever wedding entertainment idea you decide on, make sure it’s well complimented with a professional wedding DJ that will guarantee a great end to your wedding night.
