Wedding Day Entertainment: Thinking Beyond Music

Special to OneWed by Roni Shapira Ben-Yoseph of GigMasters For most brides and grooms, the conversation about entertainment starts and stops at “band or DJ,” but bringing in variety or non-musical acts can add another dimension and make a wedding that much more memorable. The key is integrating the entertainment into the greater vision for the event and finding acts with the flexibility to tailor their act for a mixed-age wedding audience. Sometimes that surprise entertainment element is a reflection of the couple’s heritage, like a Bollywood dance troupe at a Hindi reception. Other couples might showcase their shared interests; a pair who loves the Rat Pack might hire Frank, Dean and Sammy impersonators to mingle with their guests during cocktail hour. A caricaturist provides guests with a fun experience and a memorable favor that is sure to stand out, while astrologers and palm readers offer a glimpse into the future and a fun activity that appeals to all ages, unlike carbon-dated dances like The Hustle or The Cha-Cha Slide. Party rentals can liven up any event. The surprise arrival of a late night food cart can help guests find their second wind, while photo booth rentals add instant whimsy and fun to any wedding. It’s also possible that the best element of a wedding might come completely from left field, like the recent black tie affair at a gorgeous venue where the lights went down and guests were shocked and delighted by a surprise drag show! It was perfectly unexpected and a perfect reflection of the bride and groom’s personalities, like all great weddings are. At GigMasters, we continue to see a rise in couples booking non-musical entertainment for their weddings.
