Outrageous Wedding Reception Entertainment

To truly create a buzz at your wedding, discuss with your partner and wedding planner some unique wedding entertainment ideas. You don’t have to have a ho hum boring wedding. Weddings no longer have to follow a particular format and can incorporate your personality and interests as a couple. By choosing to have wedding reception entertainment that is unique, will have your guests talking and about your wedding day for years to come.

By choosing to have a themed wedding, could allow many options for hiring and selection the wedding entertainment. For example if you have a barn wedding reception, you could have decorations that incorporate haystacks and entertainment which includes, mechanical bull riding, and for the kids some barn yard animals. Perhaps even animal rides and don’t forget the all important line dancing.

Other unique wedding entertainment ideas could be the hiring of photo booth to allow guests to take some candid shots of them-selves throughout the evening. You could also keep copies of all the photos for your wedding album. A caricature artist is another truly unique idea. What better than to have a couples caricature drawn on the night.

Another theme you might consider is a medieval carnival complete with clowns, mimes, jugglers, fire blowers and more. You could also hire a hot air balloon to take your guests up on a magical ride. Imagine the romantic and spectacular photos opportunities you could have with a medieval carnival. Trapeze performers are another authentic touch. How much fun would your guests have at a wedding that has so much to offer in entertainment? Of course, there are many whose budget would not allow for this sort of extravagance. Some of these ideas are best suited for all day affairs to get maximum enjoyment and as to not compromise certain wedding formalities.

For the more traditional bride and groom, you could hire a magician or comedian to entertain in between dance sets and wedding formalities. Don’t be afraid to incorporate a little culture into the wedding. For a Middle Eastern inspired wedding, hire a belly dancer, or for a New Zealand wedding, perhaps you could hire performers to perform the Hakka. A Hawaiian wedding could incorporate a Luau and Hawaiian dancers.

Spicing up your wedding celebrations could be a simple as incorporating an interesting theme for the day. There is no hard and fast rule to say that the wedding entertainment needs to be confined to wedding music and to the stage. The possibilities are endless. Your wedding entertainment can incorporate your interests and you as a couple. Here are just some ideas to get you started, some more outlandish and others more conservative. Be open minded and you could create a truly magical experience for both you and your guests. But whatever you choose do not the most important ingredient. Have fun on the day!

A Wedding to Remember – Unique Wedding Ideas They’ll Never Forget

There are very few once in a lifetime events quite like your wedding day. From the flowers and dress to the flavor of the cake, the option to plan and personalize your wedding with your own unique wedding ideas is truly in your court. And we’ve all been to dozens of weddings that follow the standard format – the rehearsal and subsequent dinner, the wedding ceremony where the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and couple walked formally down the aisle, and, finally, the reception, where dancing and dinner is bound to follow.

And yes, points are given to the couples that take the time to personalize their wedding with fun favors, unusual refreshments, decorations, and other unique wedding ideas. But have you ever thought about shaking up your own wedding, perhaps even changing the very structure of it? With a little ingenuity (and planning), you can personalize your wedding in a way that’s fun for everyone!

My Favorite Memorable Ideas for Unique Weddings

Consider the rehearsal dinner. Whereas most couples elect to run through the standard ‘meet and greet,’ practice their walk down the aisle to get rid of those pre-ceremony jitters, and then sit down to a light repast, some brides and grooms choose to infuse this gathering with their very own unique wedding ideas. One example I’ve heard of is eliminating the sit down dinner entirely, which is usually more formal in nature anyway. The brides then invite the rehearsal dinner guests over for a picnic (in warmer months) or a potluck supper (great any time). This option not only takes away a lot of wedding stress, but also encourages the guests to interact more.

The wedding ceremony itself is, of course, meant to be solemn and respectful, but that doesn’t mean before or after the priest or minister marries the couple you can’t infuse the ceremony with your own unique wedding ideas. One of the more unusual examples I’ve heard about is the entire wedding party dancing up and down the aisle to the delight of the guests who get in on the act. Without so much as a hint as to what is going on, an upbeat tempo begins playing and guests start clapping. The bridesmaids and groomsmen get footloose up and down the aisle, making way for the groom’s and bride’s grand entrances. After all, a lively entrance is certainly one way to personalize your wedding and make sure guests never forget your nuptials!

Another way to personalize your wedding is seating guests at round tables at the wedding venue itself (serving as both the ceremony and reception area). Though it appears to be the reception, the guests actually watch as the bride and groom are married while seated at tables, and then after a quick swap out, the area becomes a beautiful reception. The perks? The bride and groom save lots of money because there’s no need to secure two venues, and your guests don’t have to travel.

And, of course, if you choose to have a wedding theme, you can incorporate all sorts of unique wedding ideas. Take the idea of a renaissance-themed wedding. Both the bride and groom, for instance, will be wearing flowing fabrics and unique headpieces, while the entertainment could feasibly be even more entertaining. Couples have hired ‘court jesters,’ ‘jugglers,’ and ‘dancers’ to lighten the mood, carry on the renaissance theme, and personalize their wedding in a unique way. However, whatever your wedding theme may be, just remember to explore all the unique wedding ideas and possibilities available to you. If it’s historical in nature, do your research! If it’s hobby-themed, ask your friends to share their ideas. Not only will collaboration on unique wedding ideas help you to envision a better wedding, you’ll also have the support of your friends.

At your reception, just about anything goes. It’s your day, so plan and personalize your wedding reception how you want. Some brides feel as though they have to please their guests. Bottom line – if you plan and personalize your wedding activities and events, your guests will want to stay all night long. Consider, for example, the buffet or sit down style dinner served at most weddings. A few brides have elected to have wait staff circulate with heavy hors d’oeuvres and beverages or have had multiple refreshment tables set up around the room. Usually, one of the most popular attractions at these refreshment tables is the giant chocolate fountain, with fruit and pretzels for dipping.

Another one of the more unique wedding ideas I’ve heard about is a groom’s cake made entirely of meat. Ideally, the groom’s cake is meant for him and his right-hand men, so, in many ways, it’s appropriate. And you might just have a lot of extra ‘cake’ left over to enjoy later!

Memories that Last a Lifetime

These examples of unique wedding ideas are just a few of the more memorable highlights I’ve seen at weddings over the years. Regardless of how you choose to personalize your wedding, it will always be a special day – a celebration of love and romance with your closest friends and family members. And if you ultimately decide to play it on the traditional side, don’t worry – you have those beautiful memories to last a lifetime.
