Wedding Entertainment for everyone
It's important for you to enjoy yourselves, but it's vital to consider all ages attending, when organising your wedding and the entertainment throughout
the day and evening. It's a sure sign of success to hear on your return from your honeymoon, "what a wonderful time we had", and how everyone enjoyed
Wedding Entertainment for the Youngsters
High class venues, beautiful floral decorations and tasty food are sure to impress the majority of your guests, but anyone under the age of ten
won't give a second glance. In fact for your special younger guests, your wedding reception can be something of a chore. Un-entertained kids
can become restless, upset and harass their parents which can interrupt the proceedings or have a negative effect on the parents or your day too,
and after all you want everyone to have fun!
When having an individual dinner table for the young ones, consider making the table a drawing board with a paper tablecloth, maybe a scene or cartoon
characters to colour in with pencils, not felt tips or paints that could prove problematic! Instead of sweet favours try small games, puzzles or toys.
You might also consider a quiz, a challenge or even a treasure hunt if the weather is good enough? Having dedicated adults to supervise or a creche with
face painting, children's entertainers, magicians, circus workshop, balloon modellers or soft play for toddlers is often a good solution to keep them
Wedding Entertainment for the older generations
It's lovely to have grampa and grandma at your wedding, and i'm sure they'd still shake it on the dance floor but consider that maybe your older guests
are not so familiar with Bruno Mars, and that they may need a suitable place to sit down, enjoy a glass of bubbly and a chat with others away from the
noise of the band, but not shut out from the party. Some may not wish to participate on the dance floor, but it doesn't mean that after dinner they're
straight off to bed.
Ideally, your wedding entertainment from the choir in the church, to harpist during drinks or band in the evening should be enjoyable for all guests.
If you're having a mobile disco or wedding band and would like your own style of music that relates to you and your new partner, that's fine, but you
must consider others may wish to hear a few tracks they enjoy too, something popular, well known and able to get everyone up dancing.
It's important to have an area at your reception where guests can chat, although a popular spot at any event I wouldn't suggest that you use bar area
for this or to have drinks in a separate room, wherever possible i'd keep guests together in one place, but if possible create an area away from the
music, you could jazz it up a bit with some alternative entertainment such as a casino table, roulette or black jack, maybe a caricaturist, close-up
magician, silhouette cutter or tarot card reader.
