11 Wedding Entertainers That Will Wow Your Guests

January 26, 2015 by Linda DiProperzio
shefinds | Weddings

While a band or DJ is definitely going to get the party started at your wedding, but couples really want to surprise their guests with the unexpected at the reception. Here are 11 ideas that are sure to get everyone excited at the party.

1. Dance Pros. Getting everyone up on the dance floor is a must for every bride and groom, so why not give guests a little incentive by hiring a couple of dance pros to teach them a few moves?

2. Caricaturist. Guests can then take their photos home as wedding favors.

3. Psychic or Tarot Card Reader. We’re not sure why, but people seem to go crazy for a free psychic or tarot card reading. Just be sure to instruct your hires to only give guests good news (so all single guests will be finding their soul mate soon!).

4. Fire Breather. This is definitely an out-of-the-box idea–and one that needs to done outside–but it is surely something your guests won’t expect. Just be sure to check with your venue (and any town/state ordinances) before booking.

5. Face Painter. If you’re having a kid-friendly reception, think about hiring a face painter for an hour or two. The little ones love it—and we’re betting after a few drinks some of the adults might want to do it, too.


6. Celebrity Impersonator. Hire an Elvis impersonator to entertain your guests. Or pick Kate and William lookalikes (or any celeb you love) to walk through the cocktail hour and pose for photos with your guests.

7. Specialty Band Or Musicians. Whether it’s a Mariachi band, bagpipe players or belly dancers, find an entertaining way to celebrate your heritage during the reception.

8. Stand-Up Comedian. You can have a funny friend or simply hire a local comic (call a nearby comedy club for contacts) to come in and do a short set during the cocktail hour to get the party started.

9. Flash Mob. This takes a lot of planning beforehand, but the look of surprise on your guests’ faces when your first dance turns into a flash mob performance is truly worth it.

10. Magician. Just be sure to choose a David Blaine-type—not a cheesy magician you’d find at the kids’ party.

11. Theater Group. If you have a local theater group—or a nearby University with a theater program—ask a few of the performers come by to do a mini-show for guests while they enjoy their dinner.
