Wedding Entertainment Ideas

Wedding entertainment is often one of the last elements to be considered when planning weddings. Don't make this mistake. Underestimating the impact of live entertainment on your big day is often ranked as one of the biggest regrets for any couple. Amazing wedding bands, emotive quartets or a dance floor filling DJ can be the difference between a good wedding and a great one!

Short of wedding entertainment ideas? Here is our guide to getting your wedding entertainment right.

Most weddings are split into four sections; the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception. There are different types of entertainment available for each of these sections of the day

The Ceremony

Whether it's a falsetto opera singer, a string quartet or pianists, the wedding ceremony itself is the perfect opportunity to use entertainment to bring a dynamic element to proceedings.

Drink Reception

A transitional element in the day, the drinks reception is a great time to introduce quirky or alternative forms of entertainment to keep guests entertained. How about a magician or caricaturist? Roaming bands are also hugely popular, as they are able to mingle between guests and provide an intimate performance to a large number of guests.

Wedding Breakfast

Yes, food, drinking and speeches are number one here. However, a jazz trio, DJ or string quartet can provide the perfect accompaniment as you transition from afternoon to evening.

Evening Reception

You have reached the party stage of the evening. The guests are ready to hit the dance floor. Make sure you hire the ultimate party band to keep your guests dancing all night long. Looking to party into the wee hours? An after party DJ is a must!

Headliner helps you source and book great soloists, bands and DJs for your wedding, party or corporate event. Find and hire local wedding entertainment to perform at your event.Can't decide between hiring a DJ or a band for your wedding? We've got you covered.
