For the Bride and Groom planning a twenty first century wedding there is sometimes the feeling that everything has been done before however with a little clever thought there are a number of alternative wedding entertainment ideas which will wow your guests.
The atmosphere at your wedding will be shaped by the entertainment which you provide for your guests and the first thing to decide is what kind of wedding reception you are hoping to arrange. A recent client of Live Music Management’s made it clear that there would be no alcohol served at their wedding and that they didn’t want to have a party which involved dancing. They were serving some beautiful food and wanted a super hip DJ to play for the guests providing chill out music. In order to make the event even more special we suggested a violin player to play alongside the DJ.This was an alternative wedding entertainment idea which Live Music Management have previously provided for corporate events including a ten day residency in the VIP area during Wimbledon fortnight.
An events client of ours happened to mention the other day that she felt Singing Waiters had perhaps run their course at events and parties.She had been to several events in the last five years where singing waiters had done their stuff and the shock of the new had passed. Indeed my own experience of singing waiters stems from an engagement in Las Vegas back in the 1990s when singing waiters had yet to hit the UK and I was stunned by the impact that they had on the room when they burst into song. In order to come up with alternative wedding entertainment ideas that have a similar impact Live Music Management have organised Pop Up Musicians . Pop Up Musicians will hide at your event with instruments placed in discreet places around the room. At a given signal they will pick up the instrument and burst into song. The addition of other musicians allows the music and impact to build as , perhaps , a sax player joins in and a drummer picks up a pot from the kitchen and beats out a rhythm. These musicians can continue on for the evening and play a set of music at the wedding reception.
The Daddy of alternative wedding entertainment ideas is perhaps Bandeoke or Rockaoke which is also known as Live Band Karaoke. Live Music Managements rockaoke and bandeoke bands have played at hundreds of weddings and yet for many people it still offers a unique opportunity to allow them to sing with a live band something which many wedding guests will have never done.
When one of our team got married last year he decided upon a stit walking band at his wedding as he wanted to utilise alternative wedding entertainment ideas which would work for his family and friends. I was a guest at the wedding and it worked fantastic!
