15 Fantastic, Fun and Fabulous Wedding Entertainment Ideas

Wedding entertainment trends tend to change as the years go on. Some of them always stick around, while others come and go. Remember the wedding photobooth trend of the past few years? People are still hiring them, sure, but there are so many more ideas now. If you’re looking for an awesome way to entertain your guests, look no further. 

In no particular order:

1. A Pop Up Beauty Bar

A pop-up beauty bar could be a brilliant way for guests to start having fun. Different companies may focus on different things. For example, couples who are planning a festival wedding often hire a beauty bar that specialises in glitter. Getting all glittered up for a festival wedding could be just the way to get everyone in the mood to party! Just be a little better to the environment and ensure that biodegradable glitter is used. 


2. A Flash Mob

When it comes to different events, flash mobs can make a huge impact. Your friends and family won’t be expecting it, and that’s the beauty of it. You’ll love the look of shock on their faces! You can get really wild with flash mobs, including things like cabaret dancers and even animals. 

3. Comedy Hypnotist 

A comedy hypnotist is a hugely unique piece of entertainment. The perfect entertainment for that lull in the day around a cocktail hour and what better way to get all your guests involved in a unique and special day. From tropical holidays to VIP film premiere’s or be amazed as a giant voodoo doll teaches the guests to dance. The possibilities are endless and all done in a Fun-Filled family-friendly show

4. A Live Painter

Capture the magic of a moment with a live painter painting different scenes from your wedding, and give your guests something amazing to go home with. 

5. Pop Up Bar

Pop up bars are a lot of fun, and over recent years the demand for them has increased massively. A great way to both entertain and feed and water your guests. 


6. Singing Waiters

Imagine your guests being served their food and drink, only to be serenaded with beautiful music by the waiters soon after. Undercover Waiters are described as charismatic, professional performers with an extensive repertoire of songs to suit all tastes. The waiters will ensure that their act suits your requirements perfectly, and both male and female are available for your wedding. It’s up to you whether you hire them for a few songs or a full show. You can choose to have up to 4 waiters to perform and keep your guests dancing all night.

7. Caricaturist 

A caricaturist can be a lot of fun, and this is something else your guests can take home with them at the end of the night. They can be a great way to fill some of the quiet moments, for example, when some guests have finished their food and others are still eating. 


8. Table Magicians 

Table magicians can perform magic tricks at different moments throughout the day, depending on what you want. For example, if you are having a wedding breakfast, a table magician can perform different tricks for each table. Who doesn’t love a little magic?

9. Animals At Weddings

Why not incorporate animals into your wedding day? If you have a beloved pet, they could join in the ceremony as your ring bearer. You could also select a venue that has animals on site, or hire some for the day. 


10. Fairground Rides

If you have wedding grounds and you want to fill them with something exciting, fairground rides could be the answer. A Ferris wheel is a great addition that isn’t too scary (suitable for all ages) and will make your day fun and memorable. 

11. Choreographed Dance Routine

Another trend that has been around for a while, but one that can make people smile all the same. A choreographed dance routine will help to wow your loved ones, and you’ll enjoy your first dance all the more as you’ll know it looks great! 

12. Balloon Artists

A balloon artist is great for kids, but could also help to bring out the child in some of your adult guests. Balloon art can be great for pictures and props, and make awesome entertainment. 


13. Celebrity Lookalikes

A great celebrity look-alike could bring a little red carpet glamour to your day. At the very least, it’ll make your guests laugh and give you some great pictures. If you haven’t got the budget for the real deal, go for a look-alike or an impersonator! 


14. Wedding DJ

A Wedding DJ can be the most versatile form of entertainment. They have the ability to play all genres of music and appeal to all ages of your wedding party. A good one will interact with the crowd and create a high energy atmosphere, whilst playing all the songs that are special to you and your partner and making all the important announcements, like cutting the cake.

15. Fortune Teller

Fancy getting an idea of what’s in your future? Lots of love, health, and happiness you hope – but a fun fortune teller may be able to tell you more! You might not believe in this sort of thing, but you don’t have to to have fun with it. Your guests will likely enjoy the sentiment, too. People could have their palms read while waiting for others to finish the food, or simply while enjoying the day. 


Some of the above wedding entertainment trends might seem a little strange, but you want your wedding to stand out, right? Of course you do! You can incorporate as many or as few of the above trends as you see fit, depending on your budget and the size of your venue. How do you want your guests to feel on the big day, and what do you want to be remembered for?
