Whether its your own big day coming up, or you’ve been given the overwhelming task of organising a wedding reception in Dublin or Ireland, you’re probably wondering how to choose wedding entertainment. No one wants a boring wedding, and with so many exciting possibilities out there, you’ll want to make it as special as possible to make it a day to remember.
As live wedding entertainment experts with more than 20 years of combined wedding experience across Ireland, we’ve compiled a list of interesting wedding entertainment ideas which are guaranteed to give the happy couple, and your guests, a truly spectacular day, no matter what the scale of the wedding reception.
Customise a Drinks Menu
Be it cocktails, craft beer, or artisan gin, composing your own drinks menu is just as important as choosing your live wedding band – the menu (or playlist) has to reflect the vibe of the wedding.
Custom drinks are a great way to add a bit of personality to one of the main components of your big day. Concoctions inspired by key events in the happy couple’s life, or beers of the world from countries they have visited and had a wonderful time will add that special touch that will bring nothing but joy to the bride and groom.
It’s not all about the alcohol either. If it’s a summer wedding reception you’re organising, a menu of specially selected mocktails would go down a treat. Teamed with upbeat music from your live wedding band, what better way to please all your guests, big and small, than with a summer garden party?
Hire a Photobooth
Take wedding photography a step further – hiring a photobooth injects an instant level of fun to any wedding photograph. The big day is all about creating memories, and what could be more memorable that an album full of photos of you and your guests posing with silly props or having a boogie to the live wedding music?
You could encourage your guests to post their snaps to social media, and even create your own #hashtag, meaning your guests can browse through all of the photobooth snaps and fondly look back on the special day.
Live Wedding Band
It goes without saying, but a wedding needs music. Sure, you could settle for a wedding DJ, but you’ll get that extra level of excitement and personality from an energetic live wedding band.
It can be a bit confusing when thinking about how to choose your wedding band. It will primarily depend on the reception’s theme and the couple’s taste, so hiring a live band that are versatile will be able to ensure that your guests are catered for.
A Few Good Men like to do things differently. Unlike other tired old bands, we offer an exciting mix of modern wedding songs, classic hits and disco anthems. Our live wedding entertainment really allows you to connect with your guests, making the entire venue come alive.
