Top 10 wedding entertainment extras  

24 Jun 2016

Wedding entertainment should be primed and plentiful come the special day; here are some ideas to inspire you

Aside from your headlining wedding day performer, there are several ways to keep your guests engaged throughout the big event. Take a look at these wedding entertainment extras to add to your itinerary.

1. Karaoke

Allow guests the chance to stretch their vocal chords and give karaoke a go. Offer something a little bit different, with Rockaoke – an opportunity to rock’n’roll, or Marryoke – a lip-synced music video all of your very own.

2. Multimedia compilation

Take wedding photo-booths one step further and ask your guests to snap away during the day to create a collaborative movie effort with the help of Yoodo TV. Collecting videos and photos from an invited group, into a video editing suite in the cloud, couples are invited to log in after the event and create a fully editable HD movie montage.

3. Outdoor games

Roll up, roll up! A spring or summer wedding should make the most of an outdoor space – weather permitting, and garden games provide the perfect opportunity. Dolly Dimples Weddings & Events specialise in unique garden games, as well as providing venue styling and hireable props. Set up a coconut shy, tin can alley, hook a duck, ring toss, splat the rat or peep board and keep guests entertained all day long.

Look up to the skies and see a stunning display that will create a lasting ‘wow’ moment.  Dynamic Fireworks create spectacular wedding firework displays at venues across the UK, guaranteed to leave a lasting memory amongst your guests.

5. Get social

Build social media into your big day with the help of At A Social Event, a company that creates social media walls for weddings. Collating all your guests’ social media posts, the social media wall will be presented for all to see and provide the perfect document of your day.

6. Chocolate fountain

Chocoholic guests will delight in the addition of a chocolate fountain, offering a sweet snack when the meals are done and dusted. Chocolate Fountain Heaven are a Hampshire-based chocolate fountain hire company and can even provide a champagne fountain – well, it would be rude not to.

8. Snack carts

From savoury to sweet offerings, a snack cart spoils infant and adult guests with a mouthwatering variety of treats to choose from. Laura Brown, founder of Laura’s Sweet Treats in Sussex, says: “A Sweet Cart is a fantastic talking point and is a reception must-have which can be enjoyed by all ages. It can also double up as your wedding favours.”

For more intimate ceremonies, wine tasting serves as an interesting – and enjoyable - activity during the day. Ben Franks Wine is an independent wine consultancy company in Bath, offering wine tasting events across the city for private parties.
