You’ve popped the question and she said “yes”, now you have to come up with the hottest, most memorable wedding ever so your bride won’t mutate into the dreaded bridezilla. But what should you do and where should you go for wedding entertainment ideas? This article has numerous ideas for your special event.
Obviously people, or entertainers, are good to have when thinking of live wedding entertainment ideas. Some include comedians, magicians, acrobats, artists to create caricatures of guests, ethnic performers like Hawaiian hula dancers or Irish step-dancers, songwriters to sing and write songs specific to your occasion, cigar rollers (yep, Cubans who make cigars), people who can make music with a saw (had that for my birthday when I was a kid), o.k I’ll stop there. But if you want something that people will be mesmerized by, try fireworks, an ice sculpture or your uncle trying to sing on the karaoke machine.
To get people to intermingle with each other force them to sit together by creating a seating chart that separates people who already know each other with new people. You can implement a game for each table to play and designate a sentry to make sure everyone is involved in your scheme. One game is to have mints or a small candy at each table, and when someone takes a piece he/she has to reveal something about themselves, but not too revealing. If someone at your table is bored or thinks the game is too corny, authorize your sentry to use lethal force.
Wedding decoration ideas are a good way to entertain your guests. For instance, you can choose a seasonal theme in season, or if you want to be a little zany out of season. A Christmas in July wedding will definitely have people talking. But don’t go to far and have a Thanksgiving in April wedding, people will just think you’re weird. You can also have an era themed wedding. Whether you’re a young couple wanting to pay homage to the 50′s generation or you’ve been married awhile and want to renew your vows in the same 80′s era you first said “I Do” in. Just be careful your friends and family aren’t planning an intervention because you’re trapped in the past. If you can’t find a band that’s into your specific era, just find a D.J and ask him to play your favorite songs from that decade. And if a D.J is too expensive for you, find a sound system rental company that has a “do it yourself” option. And if that’s too expensive, try the guy who plays music with his saw.
Party favors are among the best wedding reception ideas since everyone loves receiving gifts. Some cool favor ideas would be bookmarks for the literary enlightened people, seashells if you’re doing a beach themed wedding, gourmet coffee for people who are always on the go, and shot glass favors that you can decorate with tulle and candy and are really inexpensive. There are plenty of favors to choose from to reward your guests, and I’m sure there are punishments for guests who didn’t submit to your authority.
Simply thinking outside the box will allow you to come up with some of the most unique wedding ideas yet. So now that you have all the information to keep your bride and guests happy, the only thing you’ll have to worry about is you’re a man and you’re planning a wedding. Now go out there and get married!!
