Your Wedding & The Nitty Gritty

Posted By on Oct 20, 2016 |

When you are planning your wedding you likely have written down all the most important avenues like the church you want to marry in, or registry office if that’s your choice. You’d have dreamed of and researched possible venues for the day and also looked into the type of car you want to take you from one area to another. The thing is that weddings come with a lot of tiny details, tiny but quite important details, that a lot of people initially forget to include in their budget. Most wedding reception venues will have a DJ or live music to provide background ambience and to entertain the guests. The best weddings out there tend to provide a special entertainment such as caricaturists or a certain theme with games to play during the day. Wedding entertainment possibilities can run from tasteful to truly funky and are only limited by your imagination in the end. Some people have owls deliver wedding rings (can be cheesy!) others have a special sweet cart arriving during the evening festivities or a clown to entertain the children during speeches.

There are a lot of ways you can jazz up your ceremony and reception and your wedding planning company like can give you some excellent pointers. We have a list of some of the things you can do to make your day exceptionally wonderful!


  • Photo or video montage: A photo montage projected onto a large screen at your reception is always a huge hit with guests. These shows visually tell the story of the bride and groom, from growing up to meeting to engagement and other lovely stories about them. Guests mention again and again what a delight the show was for them. These types of shows are produced by speciality companies and may also be generated by some videographers.
  • Memory preservation: With the advent of new technologies, new possibilities have become available. Preserving wedding photographs and video onto DVDs is one of the biggest ways to preserve your wedding memories. This means that virtually all of your wedding photos and video can be transferred to DVD, so that you can view them on your television in addition to in your wedding album. You can then have copies made relatively inexpensively.
  • Magicians & Tarot cards: Nowadays you can hire jugglers, magicians, balloon artists for kids, tarot card or palm readers for your day. This type of interactive entertainment is always a great hit with everyone, both adults and children alike. These professionals generally have material prepared for all different age groups, so don’t let any preconceived ideas limit your choices.
  • Children’s entertainment: Depending on whether you have children at your wedding at all, having a children’s entertainer at the reception will not only be a delight for the kids, but will free the parents up to enjoy a few hours of quality time. Professional child entertainers have organised games, stories, balloons, bubbles, piñatas etc that will keep the little ones interested for hours.

Ultimately your wedding day has to have enough fun and smiles and no boredom or restlessness from the guests. Table games are always a good way to go as well to keep people entertained while they eat. Go for broke and have the day you want not the day people expect you to have and your wedding will be the talk of the family for years to come!
