7 Unique Wedding Entertainment Ideas

7 Unique Wedding Entertainment Ideas
No one wants to bore their wedding guests and that’s not a problem because there are always plenty of great new and unique wedding entertainment ideas that’ll make your wedding the one guests talk about for years.

From bouncy castles and circus performers to reptiles and singing waiters, here are some interesting tips that Singers for Hire have come across over the years to help guarantee your wedding reception is the most talked about event of the year. Fabulous (but maybe tongue in cheek!) entertainment ideas for your wedding day.

1. Dance Party

This one from Cork bride Joanne “Dance a Tango at the drinks reception!”!  Joanne booked a dance teacher to choreograph her guests in an easy and fun routine they could do together.  Why not make your family dance extra special by supplying costumes and novelty footwear.

2. Duelling Pianos

With Duelling Pianos as a wedding entertainment to supplement or even replace your wedding band, you can have huge variety of music, plus the added dimension of interactivity because your guests can make requests, suggest songs or musical themes.  A great duelling piano duo will know hundreds of tunes but the hire of two grand pianos might cost you thousands…..

3. Release your Inner Gamer

This one from a wedding in Galway;  set up a gamer’s room with a pool table, air hockey, big screen Xbox and a popcorn machine – they even had special mood lighting to transform the space into an arcade….it’ll keep the kids happy but you might find the groomsmen miss the speeches

3. Dublin Petting Zoo

Yes that’s right – in a top Dublin hotel, we came across a mini petting zoo, stocked with exotic creatures and small farmyard animals during the cocktail reception. Guests were heard to comment how cool it was to pet a lizard or tortoise or get up close with a baby goat. We tentatively recommend it.

4. Photo Booth

From west Wexford to the tip top of Donegal, you can’t go wrong with a photo booth and today there are so many great styles to choose from; mirror cameras, retro phone booth, open photo booth, photo lounge and don’t forget to include a wide variety of props. Make sure to time-stamp the photos, it’s amazing how they’ll change in style over the course of your reception.

5. Food as Entertainment!

A take-away food van at any stage of your party will have an amazing effect. You can have chip and burger vans to start, ice cream or crepe vans to finish or stay up late with mobile cocktails. You could even incorporate Singers for Hire’s Singing Pizza Guy…with or without pizza

6. Poetry Improv
One Co. Limerick wedding enjoyed a very unique experience when they booked an improvisation poet who wrote and later recited a personalised poem for the bride and groom during the speeches all typed up, “old school” on a Remington typewriter a guest inspired story during the reception. His 1960 vintage outfit was right on mode.
7. Singing Waiters and Opera Singing Chefs
That’s where we come in. After 15 years and thousands of happy brides we must be doing something right. We are always updating our show and set-ups so no one expects our undercover singers but one thing that doesn’t change is the great atmosphere and amazing memories you’ll get from a Singers for Hire show.

Just want to say huge thanks from us for the brilliant performance by the singers who performed at our wedding in Breaffy.

They were absolutely fantastic and we're still getting rave reviews and complements from our wedding guests. Definitely a great addition to the wedding entertainment and they came on at just the right time when people needed some reenergising after all the food!

Would highly recommend the performance to any other potential customers.

Please pass on our thanks to the two singers,

Kind regards
