    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 entertainers like 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 guest entertainment right. From unusual wedding entertainment ideas to simply wanting ideas to entertain guests at a wedding, our guide shows the best wedding hire ideas.

    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. When looking for stellar wedding reception entertainment, 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! Reach out to a member of the Headliner team for even further wedding reception entertainment ideas.
