You’ve set the date, found the dress, discovered the perfect venue and finally drawn up the guest list – now comes what can be the biggest challenge of the day – how to keep all your lovely guests entertained. You may wince at the thought of a lacklustre DJ or a band that seem to just be going through the motions and it’s true that finding the right entertainment can be hard – don’t worry though a bit of research and a bit of inside knowledge can go a long way.
How to find the best wedding entertainment in Surrey
The first step is to think about what kind of feeling you want for your wedding and for a lot of people getting the music right is the first step. The best to start when choosing your music is to think about what you and your partner love. You may share a passion for the sophistication of a string quartet or need a band to bring some guaranteed bangers to get your guests to the floor.
It’s important to know the band you choose will be able to deliver the kind of professional approach that’s needed to offer top-notch entertainment so tap into local knowledge about where to find the best wedding entertainment in Surrey – ask your venue who they’d recommend or check out local entertainment agencies for tips.
What if I don’t want a band or DJ
You may be planning a less traditional affair, perhaps a simple drinks reception, or an afternoon tea rather than a full-blown evening do. Of course, you’ll still want some sort of entertainment, and this is where a little creative thinking is invaluable. You could think about engaging the services of a wedding magician who’ll wow your guests with tricks and illusion, or a performance poet, who can make up witty verse on the spot. For something more interactive, how about engaging a circus performer and drumming up some audience participation or getting guests involved in creating the perfect speech by using an interactive speech board where everyone posts their memories and greetings.
You’ll probably want some kind of music too, maybe something unobtrusive that will offer an auditory backdrop to the rest of your theme, or something more upfront that offers a definite entertainment slot. When it comes to wedding entertainment in Surrey, you can’t go wrong with choosing something like a roaming band, who will walk amongst your guests, entertaining as they go, or even a funky hip hop duo who’ll bring a whole new take on the lounge party vibe.
Whatever atmosphere you want to create, a great band and thoughtful entertainment will help you host a superb event for your guests and create a day to remember.
