What Can You Do & When?

So the church is booked, you have ordered the dress, and the big day is on the calendar! What next? have you given much thought to your wedding entertainment ideas ? There are many different types of wedding entertainment and choosing the right one is crucial. It’s your big day and you don’t want to have to worry about an amateur act spoiling it.

Many couples will tell you that Looch is the perfect choice for your wedding entertainment. However you may have found an alternative act who specialises in different forms of entertainment. So let’s take a look at when is the best time to utilise their services?

The Wedding Breakfast

One of the most popular times for entertainment is the wedding breakfast.  The seating plans can often make or break the rapport between guests. Looch will visit each table in between courses and engage everyone with his unique form of mind reading. Your act could do the same! This type of entertainment is traditionally known as Mix and Mingle. The wedding breakfast can be the first time members of the opposite family have met each other. Your act should be the perfect ice breaker and become a catalyst to help bring everyone together in a blend of laughter and amazement.

During the Photographs

Following your ceremony and whilst the photographs are being taken, there can be lengthy periods where not everyone is engaged. Entertainment with your guests here is a fantastic idea. Magicians, Caricaturists, Musicians (especially acoustic ones) are perfect for this time. Entertainment during the photographs is one way to help eliminate stress on an already busy day. You can rely on a professional entertainer who will be flexible, fun and memorable.

After the Speeches

Once the wedding breakfast and speeches have concluded, there will be a natural lull at your wedding. There will be a period of time before your evening guests start to arrive, so its important to keep things moving! Wedding Entertainment ideas for after the speeches could be your very own show. Some performers offer after dinner entertainment like this. You may wish to hire a comedian or maybe some outdoor fun games, to keep people moving and not falling into a food coma!

The Evening Reception

As your evening guests begin to arrive it creates an interesting dynamic. You will have your day guests, who will have been with you for several hours by then. Possibly they will have had a few drinks and will be mixing with your freshly dressed evening guests. This can sometimes create a subtle divide amongst your guests and thats less than ideal. 

You may opt to continue with a mingling performer, entertaining your guests close up in an informal style. This is certainly recommended up until you cut that cake and have your first dance. At that point, it’s time to turn the music up and get those dancing shoes on. Your wedding entertainment ideas here will be a range of DJ’s, Singers, Bands and other musicians. Consider the music style, dont go for death metal if Great Grandma is there! A well balanced music act can really bring everyone together at this point, so should be chosen wisely.
