More Than A Disco: Wedding Entertainment Ideas With A Twist

If there’s one form of guaranteed entertainment at a wedding, it’s music and dancing. After all, what’s a celebration without music? However, if you want to knock it out of the park when it comes to how enjoyable and memorable your big day is, a disco (or a live band) shouldn’t be the only entertainment that you have on offer.

 

Your wedding day entertainment should blow your guests away; it shouldn’t give them the same memories that every other wedding they’ve ever been to has. You want to be as unique as possible when it comes to the entertainment that you offer, to ensure that your wedding really is a show stopper.

 

So, with that in mind, below are some truly unique wedding entertainment ideas that are guaranteed to make your guests’ day.

 

Incorporate games

A great way to ensure that everyone enjoys your big day and has a laugh with you is to incorporate an array of games that everyone can get involved in. We’re not talking board games – although giant versions of these can also work well, more like garden games, such as boules, ring tossing, and playing cornhole. The great thing about these types of games is that you can opt to personalize them to fit your wedding theme and style. For example, you could order specially designed wraps for your cornhole board from a specialist site like www.LetsPlayCornhole.com/cornhole-wraps/, to personalize the boards to fit your big day perfectly. Or, for instance, you could opt to create a ring toss that links to your wedding in some way or another – perhaps you could have one ring toss pole with a bride on and the other with a groom on? Get creative and have some fun, and you can make sure that your big day is as fun and memorable as possible.

 

Bring out your inner child

 

Weddings are all about having fun, so why not bring out your inner child and celebrate your nuptials in style? To make your big day even more enjoyable for everyone in attendance, find ways to bring out your inner child and have some fun. One way to do that is to hire a bouncy castle for you and your guests to bounce on. Believe it or not, there are plenty of bouncy castle hire companies that offer adult bouncy castle hire, perfect for weddings (and other events). Just make sure that if there are any kids in attendance, that before any adults get on, the kids get off. Or, if you’re holding your wedding somewhere with plenty of outdoor space, why not hire a giant slide for everyone to have a go on? Or, what about booking swing boats? If you want to ensure that your big day is remembered for all the right reasons, getting creative with your entertainment is a must.

 

Make capturing memories fun

A big part of any wedding is making memories, which is why it’s so important to ensure that you get creative when it comes to capturing memories. Yes, having a wedding photographer is a must, but that’s not all you need. As well as natural-looking photographs and group shots captured by the photographer, you also want to ensure that there are some more fun and quirky photos taken. To do this, hiring a photo booth is a great option, especially as if you ensure that there’s a bucket of props on offer too, having a photo booth can be a whole lot of fun. Another option is to have a life-sized photo board of you and the groom created with cut-outs where your faces should be, for your guests to stand in and snap photos. Or, how about hiring a caricature to come and draw pictures of your guests – these could make great wedding favors.  

 

A wheel of truth or dare

 

Truth or dare is a lot of fun, especially when you’ve had a few drinks, so why not incorporate it into your wedding with a wheel of fun? If you or the groom are handy with woodwork, perhaps you could make your own DIY wheel, if not, you could always opt to have one custom-made via an online site. Either way, having a wheel of fun with a combination of truth questions or dares, can be a lot of fun. Aim to personalize the things on the wheel, to make the game more fun. For example, perhaps you could have dates like ‘tap cousin Lisa on the head and run – don’t let her see you’ or truths like ‘who is your favorite uncle?’. Get creative and see what you can come up with. The more creative you can make the wheel, the more fun you will have.

Another great way to ensure that your big day is enjoyable for everyone in attendance is to plan an array of sport’s activities for everyone to get involved in. Think sack races, egg and spoon races,  relay races – get creative and come up with a range of ideas that anyone who wants to, can get involved in. Perhaps you could even give out little medals and trophies for the winners to up the ante a little? For ideas of ways that you could personalize the sports activities that you have picked, have a browse online – sites like Pinterest should have plenty of ideas that you could try, so it’s more than worth taking the time to have a browse.

 

Yes, every wedding needs a disco (or a live band) – what’s a wedding without dancing? But that’s not the only entertainment that you should offer – get creative and come up with some unique ways to keep everyone entertained throughout the day and into the evening. Hopefully, the ideas and suggestions above will help you to do that, but if you’re still a little stuck, there’s sure to be plenty of ideas online, it’s just a case of finding the ones that are a good fit for your big day, that’s all.
