10 last minute entertainment ideas for your drinks reception
Here’s 10 last minute entertainment ideas for your drinks reception from Warble Entertainment
If your big day is getting close you’ll be going through all the details and no doubt visualizing how each part of the day will flow. The drinks reception is often part of the day that can be overlooked, which is such a shame as if you think about it, this is the first celebration of you officially being man and wife, wife and wife or husband and husband.
Booking entertainment for your drinks reception is a great idea for so many different reasons, but mainly it:
– Sets the tone for the rest of the day
– Breaks the ice for family and friends who don’t know each other
– Stops your guests from getting restless while you are off having your photos
– Provides a great talking point going in to the Wedding Breakfast
So, with this in mind, here are 10 great drinks reception entertainment ideas:
Caricaturists are one of the most popular forms of entertainment for weddings this summer and it’s easy to see why. Not only is it a great ice-breaker for guests as it draws in a crowd, it also provides a fantastic memento for your guests.
If you’re looking to create a wonderful, upbeat, yet sophisticated ambience for your day then a saxophonist would be the perfect choice. They can also be flexible with regards to performing inside or outdoors.
Booking a magician for your drinks reception will not only keep your guests entertained, it will provide great talking points for during the wedding breakfast – especially for guests that don’t know each other.
4. Acoustic Guitarist
To create a lovely laid back vibe you may want to consider an Ed Sheeran style acoustic singer and guitarist to perform everyone’s favourite covers.
5. Living Tables
If you’re looking for something a little different that your guests may not have seen before then this is a great option. It is quite literally a person that acts as a table and you can serve drinks from them. You can theme the person and the table to your colour scheme too.
6. Strolling Band
To create a lively atmosphere with an English garden party feel then you should consider booking a strolling band. There are lots of styles and genres available and because they are acoustic they can be flexible
7. Face Painter
A face painter is a great way to entertain children during the drinks reception especially as they are likely to be feeling restless after sitting through the ceremony. This will also create some fun photo-opportunities.
This is a great way to add a unique twist to proceedings and create a fantastic talking point as well as fun photo opportunities. Maybe the groom is a huge Only Fools and Horses fan and so you could surprise him with a Del Boy lookalike and impersonator? The best part is watching your guests try to work out if they’re actually the real deal!
9. Balloon modeler
Again, another great way to keep the children entertained and it was also add some colour into proceedings
10. Living Trees
If you’re looking for unique, original, fun and fabulous entertainment for your guests then this is perfect for you. They look like real life topiary so great as decoration for a marquee or outdoor drinks receptions… But when they come to life to scare, hug, walk and talk with your guests prepare for lots of laughter!
