Wedding Entertainment

No one wants to throw a total snooze-fest wedding or bore their guests to tears. No worries though; there are a ton of super offbeat wedding entertainment ideas that’ll make your guests remember your wedding for years!

Magicians are one of the most popular forms of additional wedding entertainment. Although most perform humourous card or coin tricks and some specialise in mind reading tricks or even theatrical pick pocket stunts. Again, a great means for breaking the ice and getting groups of guests mixing and mingling together.


Prepare to be dazzled! Wedding caricatures are an excellent and unique idea to entertain your wedding guests. Each quick caricature breaks the ice and raises laughter during your wedding lulls.


Gone are the days when garden games were reserved for children at school summer fetes. Brides and grooms are choosing to include garden games in their big day more and more, especially if their nuptials are planned for the spring or summer. Garden Games Gallery

Fire-pits appeal to all age groups - they take us back to our stone age roots and are perfect at any time of year, summer or winter. Just imagine your guests grouped round the fire-pit toasting marshmallows.


Okay, this is an obvious one, but it made the list because music is a major fun factor at the reception, and it has a lot to do with how long your guests will stay. The last thing you want to see is your dance floor clear out when the "chicken dance" comes on. So, make sure to talk to your DJ about your do-not-play list.

Not something everyone would consider for their wedding, but when it comes to keeping your guests entertained this is a great idea and absolutely hilarious to watch. Bring a pair of shorts.


Your wedding ceremony is a deeply personal event and live music can play an important part in enhancing the emotional impact of the occasion.

Evening Casino

Casino provides the perfect environment in which your guests can share your special day. A Fun casino can be used in a variety of ways to add that unique touch to your wedding day. Many brides and grooms choose Pier Fun Casinos to entertain their guests between the wedding breakfast and the evening reception. This provides a perfect opportunity for all your guests to mix and will blend the day seamlessly into the night

A scavenger or treasure hunt is a great icebreaker for your special day. This type of wedding reception entertainment will appeal to guests of all ages and encourage everyone to meet new friends as they rush to find all of the items on your list.

A couple of brightly coloured archery butts on the lawn outside your wedding or reception venue can make for an attractive scene. While capturing the bride and groom as they shoot arrows can result in some striking and very original wedding photography.
