Fun Wedding Reception Ideas

Your wedding reception party is when everyone can ditch the posh hats, kick off their shoes, and really enjoy themselves.
Make your guests feel like celebrities from the moment they arrive with comedy paparazzi at the door, desperate for that ‘scoop shot’, and first drinks served from ‘living tables’, complete with costumed host or hostess in the middle! Line the way into your venue with eye-catching ice sculptures, leading to a neon-lit bar with flair bartenders ready to mix up a storm of breath-taking cocktails.

Whether you love to salsa, boogie, jive, hop or just go disco crazy, there’s a wedding function band for hire just waiting to play for you!

If you want something smoother, hire a Rat Pack singer and band, a swing band or a laid-back soul band to delight your guests with a wonderful show and terrific music. Or hire a ceilidh band (Irish band) that’ll soon have everyone up and jigging and reeling about, regardless of alcohol intake! In between dancing, keep the entertainment flowing with a glitzy Las Vegas style casino, or the adrenaline flowing with ‘big boys toys’ such as F1 simulators and giant Wii console games.
For a grand finale, draw your guests outside with fire and glow performers, lighting the way out with breath-taking fire juggling, before filling the sky with your own magnificent firework display. As Miranda Hart’s fictional mother would say, “Such fun!”
