Nobody wants a boring wedding.
Everybody wants something that will make it memorable and unique.
You can achieve this by choosing some unusual wedding entertainment.
Choosing unusual wedding entertainment is always a bit of a gamble…. because if it’s too off-the-wall then you run the risk of having a roomful of your nearest and dearest murmuring “what the hell were they thinking?!?!?!” under their breaths… but if you pull it off convincingly then you’ve got a sure-fire winner on your hands.

Is the risk worth it? If you pull it off, yeah.

So where do you start?

Singing Waiters
A popular option is a “Singing waiter”, where suddenly out of the blue one of the waiters starts singing while serving the guests. It definitely gets a few gasps, but it’s not the most original of all the unusual wedding entertainment options out there in the north west, as it’s been done quite a bit already.

Unusual First Wedding Dance and Dancing Down The Aisle
You could go down the route of doing a “non-traditional” first dance, or a dance down the aisle (see the videos below). Again, surprising for your guests, but does take a bit of planning, rehearsal and nerve on the day.

You’re better off getting a choreographer to help you with this, as it virtually guarantees you wont look like idiots flailing around having a fit – I recommend my wife, Melissa. She has worked in the industry for over ten years, and has worked with professionals including Kylie’s Chroeographer, Tim Noble. Contact her on 07737 649930 or visit http://AngelsDance.co.uk

Wedding Caricatures
Speed Caricaturists are quite a good idea for weddings – these talented sketchers do quick drawings of your guests and let them keep them as a memento of your big day.

Wedding Magicians
Wedding meals can be boring. Fact. Magicians can break up the monotony with miracles performed under the noses of your guests. I cannot recommend good buddy Wayne Goodman highly enough. He is based in East Anglia, but is willing to travel if you want the best. Visit his site here: http://waynegoodman.co.uk
Here’s a promo video for one of Wayne’s original effects, it captures his style nicely:
