When it comes to planning your big day! Guests can have high expectations regarding the wedding entertainment.
We bet you want them to talk about your wedding for a long time afterwards!
First and foremost, you as a couple should enjoy yourselves! However, entertaining your wedding guests is of great importance as well.
Even if you’ve packed your DJ’s setlist with the best songs and chosen the most colorful fireworks, it can be a good idea to plan for a few alternative ways for attendees to have fun at your reception.
Think out of the box!
Live Band: Incorporate live music into your wedding reception to make your guests feel like they’re at a concert! Mix it up and pick a band or genre that differs from the standard wedding music. Opt for a vintage jazz band or a retro funk group or a pop crowd pleaser. Bring your theme to life with a band that perfectly complements your outfits, décor, and overall style.
Saxophone and Violin: A saxophonist or a violinist could be the perfect contrast to add a funky, soulful vibe to your favorite tunes. Add in some percussion, vocals, or other brass instruments to bring more energy to the typical DJ’s set. You can also tailor the live addition to your desired theme. For example, a violinist would suit a classic white wedding.
Quartet : String quartets are absolutely the perfect option for intimate weddings, your entrance or your first dance. Whether you’re planning a grande wedding or you’re just planning on having a few guests, a string quartet will be a perfect, classy and unique experience. Our favorite is Artistic productions
Drumshow: Upbeat and fun. A drum show will wow your wedding guests and will keep the party going.You can also adapt it to more traditional themed weddings such as mehndi and hindu. The drumming group’s lively music and energetic performance will elevate the ambience of any reception.
Acrobats, Fire dancers & Burlesque performers: Fire-breathers, stilt walkers, fire dancers, burlesque performers and circus or carnival acts are all wonderful live wedding entertainment spectacles to behold. You could schedule trapeze artists to perform overhead during the drinks reception to take your wedding entertainment to new heights, while burlesque performers, fire dancers or fire-breathers are the perfect way to liven the mood after dinner or at the end of the night. We guarantee that your guests won’t forget these acts.
Traditional Greek Dancers: Traditional Greek dancing has been a favorite way for Greeks to celebrate since time immemorial. Dance has always had a prominent position in Greek society throughout the centuries. Over time it has evolved to suit the needs of different groups of Greeks, who have made their own dances, leading to great regional diversity in this most physically expressive of the arts. We guarantee that this type of entertainment will get the party going!
FOOD AND BEVERAGES
Mixologist: You might not necessarily think of a mixologist as a performer, but just wait until you see them at work! They can create completely original concoctions, even using visually stunning techniques involving fire and smoke, and incorporate your personal story into their custom creations while answering any questions your guests may have about different flavor pairings. And, of course, the results are delicious! Absolutely you have to try The moving spirits.

Not everyone will do a formal pose for the wedding photographer, but they’ll likely visit the photo booth for a fun group picture or selfie. It’s like getting an extra set of wedding photos.

Tattoo and Henna: Getting a mehndi adorned on your palms and feet means much more than a basic tradition and is associated with positive spirits and good luck.
