A couple’s wedding day should be focused on two things, the couple getting married and how they want to share this day with the family and friends they love. It is not about how to please Aunt Ethel or how to pacify a stepmother, but all about a celebration of the bride and groom. They have chosen to celebrate their day with loved ones and it is up to those loved ones to show up and celebrate. Unusual wedding entertainment ideas add to the fun and games of a wedding day created to the tastes of the couple getting married.
Most brides and grooms want their loved ones to have a good time and remember their wedding day as a fun day of shared celebration and joy. While traditions can be meaningful and fun, it is important that the bride and groom enjoy their day by making it unique to them and those they are choosing to share the day with. If the happy couple wants traditional wedding entertainment and that is what they believe will make their party a dream come true, more power to them. If unusual wedding entertainment ideas are more up their alley, the only limits are the imagination.
Unusual wedding entertainment is typically fun and games that depart from the traditional take lots of pictures and eat good food wedding receptions, with a few balloons and booze thrown in as well. While pictures, food, balloons and booze are good things and will likely be included in most wedding receptions, some fun twists such as employing fun entertainment for the kids can only result in laughter and fun. If there will be many children present who are near and dear to the bride and groom, hiring a balloon artist to come and make shapes can be a lot of fun. A clown who will make balloon shapes and perform simple magic tricks can delight party goers of all ages, the bride and groom included.
Other different twists on unusual wedding entertainment can be things such as fun themes complete with costumes and table settings for the reception, if not the entire wedding. Seasonal décor and food can be interesting and fun as well. Having a surprise party wedding where the guests are invited to a themed party, a cookout or pool party or even a Christmas or New Year’s party then learn that there will be a wedding is a blast of fun for the bride and groom to plan and the guests to enjoy and remember.
Having a magician perform at a wedding reception is a fantastic entertainment option that is sure to bring lots of smiles and memorable moments to a truly magical day. The bride and the groom can hire a great magician and rest assured that their guests will be entertained well while photos are being taken or while everyone is mingling and getting food and the like.
This type of entertainment for the wedding reception is fresh and unusual but definitely fun and exciting as well.
The best way to incorporate a magician into the wedding reception is to hire one that is performing up close and personal more so than just a stage performance. A magician that can mingle about the crowd and wow clusters of guests, adults and children alike, will really add a great dimension to the party.
Before the wedding, the bride and groom can discuss with the magician how they would like him or her to entertain the guests. The magician will have suggestions and ideas to input into this discussion as well and a workable, fun plan will come together.
An up close and personal magician to walk about the room and mingle with the party goers is a great way to provide entertainment at a wedding reception. As people gather in small clusters to chat, stand in line at the food tables or even once they are seated at tables talking and eating, the magician can approach them and joke around, warming up to performing a myriad of fun effects such as sleight of hand tricks and baffling table magic.
Most of the time these talented and experienced magicians will use common objects as props in their tricks, borrowing rings or bank notes as well as glasses or coins from participants.
Another way to have a magician act incorporated into the wedding reception is to have an area set aside for such a performance off and away from the dance floor and food tables.
Then those guests who are taking a break from dancing and eating or who do not wish to dance can wander over there and be delightfully entertained by an up close and personal show of baffling effects and fun tricks. However a magician is factored into the wedding reception, there is no doubt that the event will be enhanced because of it. People of all ages love to enjoy a true magician’s acts of puzzlement and amazement.
