When to have Entertainment at Your Wedding

Many people, while planning their wedding, do not seem to realise that live entertainment can fit almost anywhere in your wedding, and not just during the party at the end of the night.

You’ll be surprised, however, at the opportunities to make your wedding day more magical by adding that live element within your day. Here at Ntertain, our expertise is on wonderful, high quality entertainment, and here’s some advice on how you can expand your day to make it as great as it can be.

For Your Ceremony

With the ceremony being the start of your day and obviously the most intimate; a gentle, warming atmosphere would be as standard. To amplify this for guests entering your wedding, waiting for the bride to walk down the aisle and signing the register, you could consider the following types of musical acts to perform in the background at each pivotal point of your ceremony:


  • Harpist
  • Pianist
  • Saxophone
  • Organist
  • Singer
  • String Quartet

For your drinks reception

Once your ceremony has finished, rather than have your photographs taken with only the hubbub of your guests as the background noise, why not consider looking at small item of entertainment or music during the transition?

How about a Casino table to test your luck? A magician could even help to enlighten adults and children alike, a beautiful harmony from string quartet or simply have some relaxing piano music. These are just a few ideas for seamless entertainment during your special day.

For your wedding breakfast

The wedding breakfast is perfect for featuring entertainment whilst you and your guests are seated after the wedding ceremony and drinks, as it not only keeps everyone happy, but it essentially warms everyone up for what is yet to come, the evening reception.

Try a light hearted approach and have a professional singer to perform and serenade you and your guests, or why not even try the Scandinavian Kiss of the Bride/Groom; where whenever the bride leaves the room the female guests approach the groom and give him a kiss and vice versa!

 For your evening reception

The final part of your wedding day is the evening reception, or after party if you like! This is where Ntertain can well and truly recommend the ideal acts and performers for this section of your big night.

All types of entertainment can be used for your evening reception, and if you decide one piece of entertainment didn’t fit in another area of your wedding but can fit here, then go for it! Casino tables, magicians and string quartets can all make the evening reception even more special; and having a live band or singer adds even more to the party!
