You only have to open a magazine or visit a wedding fair these days to find that there is something else you find you have not thought about when organising your special day. Have you booked the photographer? Are you having doves, perhaps a release of butterflies or now you can even have an owl swoop down and bring in your wedding rings! All these unusual yet innovative ideas are available and sometimes we can forget about the basics. The wedding breakfast. Almost all weddings will have a meal and within this time there is also one of the most important events: the speeches. So who do you sit where? Do you put friends together or mix them up with family in an attempt to create some sort of party atmosphere? Do you eat before or after? Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way we could create an electric atmosphere which will set the tone for the rest of the day and get our guests to be the entertainment without them even knowing? There is a new business in the market that is solving all these problems.

Tabletasks Events are a company that provides wedding breakfast entertainment which can range from the austere to laugh-out-loud fun and frolics, depending on the client and the vision for their event. Tabletasks dynamic ice breakers can be used at any point during an event where you are seating people together for a substantial amount of time.

Lynn Jinks of Tabletasks Events says “Many couples don’t consider wedding breakfast entertainment a priority but this can be one of the most pivotal and essential turning points of their big day. I know from experience as a bride, that organising seating for the wedding breakfast can be daunting. With so many important guests, it can be difficult to know where to place them and how to avoid any awkward silences and stilted conversations. I didn’t want a harp player, a singer or caricaturist because this doesn’t directly involve the guests, there was nothing else on the market. So I created it”.

As soon as the ring was slipped on to your finger did a million ideas flash through your mind or where you left overwhelmed by the magnitude of possibilities out there? You may already be thinking about your wedding and will be looking for ways to tailor it to reflect your personality and your unique and individual style. Whether it is a small or grand affair, wedding or civil partnership, traditional or contemporary, Tabletasks can cater for all. Working with mainstream hotels and wedding venues to weddings abroad Tabletasks can go wherever you are. The dynamic ice breakers are respectfully and skillfully devised with your guests personality, style and age in mind.

Lynn explained “In between each course of your wedding breakfast each of your guests are carefully instructed, by one guest chosen as that table leader, to open their personal printed envelopes. Inside they will find a bespoke personal ice breaker for them to complete. The ice breakers can vary from being simple recollections of memories to all singing all dancing up on their feet show off tasks. Each of the dynamic ice breakers will be bespoke to each of your individual guests and will be tailored to their unique personality and style so no guest feels intimidated or embarrassed. Well not unless you want them to be. They are easy, fun and exciting and are a fantastic way of getting your guests interacting, laughing and talking. This ensures your guests embark on an entertainment adventure ensuring long lasting memories of your Wedding.”

It is always nice to know that your wedding will be unique and special and because each couple and their guests are different no two weddings will ever be the same. So if you want your guests to be talking about your wedding for month’s even years after then get them involved in your day by giving them all a fun safe ice breaker to complete, get them really involved in your big day. The dynamic ice breakers have even been used as favors for guests and have even doubled up as name cards keeping the costs down for you.

Each wedding has its own requirements and each couple their own vision so for more information about how Tabletasks dynamic ice breakers can work for you and your event you can contact Lynn Jinks at Tabletasks Events on 07816417879 or visit their website at www.tabletasks.com

kids caricaturist

The guest list is always a contentious issue when planning a wedding – usually it’s down to how many guests you can afford – especially during the afternoon when you are paying per head for the wedding breakfast. Once you’ve figured out how many you can afford, there’s the painstaking review of who you can leave out without offending.

Next stop… Children. If you already have children of your own then the decision to invite children may be easier than if you haven’t, as you will understand their needs and have more of an idea of what to expect. For the brides and grooms out there who don’t have children there is the worry of them taking over proceedings a little and running riot on your special day. For anyone thinking of inviting children to their big day, here are some wedding entertainment ideas, which are suitable for children and adults alike. magician Magician Booking a magician for your wedding is the perfect way to entertain your guests throughout the day and evening. As they don’t have big props or equipment to plug in / carry around, they can be very flexible about when and where they perform. A popular time to book them is during the drinks reception. At this point the children may have already been sitting for quite some time before and during the ceremony and so may be ready to stretch their legs and explore places they shouldn’t! Many magicians have a large repertoire of tricks suitable for children and adults… Who also tend to get fidgety at this stage and so keeping them entertained means you can enjoy having your photos taken without feeling guilty about leaving your guests. kidscaricaturist Caricaturist Caricaturists are always extremely popular with the younger and older guests. They are very versatile so again can be very flexible about when and where they perform. As well as during the drinks reception may brides and grooms book a caricaturist during the beginning of the evening reception. This helps bring together the guests from the daytime with the new guests in the evening as well as providing some lighter more relaxed entertainment after the wedding breakfast. It gives the guests time to allow their no doubt lovely dinner to settle before they take to the dance floor for the evening festivities! Children love having their caricature drawn, as they only take a few minutes and it means they have their own special favour from the day. Also, as well as being drawn it is lots of fun to watch your fellow guests being transformed into a cartoon! wedding article 3 Balloon Modeler Professional balloon modeling is a true art form and will leave guests of all ages entranced and enthralled. They can mix & mingle with your guests whilst captivating them with outrageous, bespoke and often detailed creations.  Not only is this a great way to entertain children and adults it provides a unique favour for your guests as well as creating some fabulous photo opportunities. This is an act, which can be booked at any point throughout your day where you feel your guests would benefit from some extra entertainment.

circus workshop

Circus Workshop Circus workshops are becoming increasingly popular with weddings because of the fun nature of the act which helps create a light-hearted atmosphere during any part of the day. Your guests will receive expert tuition in circus and magic tricks from highly expert and skilled professional performers. They are suitable for children from 3 years and provide a safe, self-contained environment for your adults and children to enjoy learning a new skill. A circus workshop is perfect entertainment during the drinks reception and if in a different area, the wedding breakfast too as it can help keeps the children entertained during the speeches. It can be used indoors and out doors depending on the weather.

A bride asked recently about Wedding entertainment to keep their guests of all ages amused. After thinking for a little while I was reminded of a local Family run business called Surrey Scalextric Hire.

Scalextric is one toy that sticks in most peoples minds from their childhood. It’s guaranteed to ignite their competitive spark and will keep them all amused for hours.  The track is linked up to a laptop, which in turn is linked up to two large monitors, showing all the action and results wherever you’re standing. Scenery and figures add to the racing realism, with trees and pit stop figures scattered around the track. Medals and a trophy are included, increasing the competitiveness.

Surrey Scalextric Hire are a husband and wife team who have been through years of events, they know how it should be done. They are very confident so you can sit back and let them run the show. With track’s set up on modular boards they can accommodate and make the best use of any given area. They offer a wide range of wedding and event hire options and have packages to suit every need.
