The date is set, the venue booked. But now you have to decide what entertainment you are going to have at your wedding. There are literally hundreds of options available to choose from and it can be a little overwhelming. So here we outline some great ideas for wedding entertainment.
Music For The Wedding Ceremony
What better way to walk down the aisle than to the sound of one of the most beautiful classical pieces ever written, Pachelbel's Canon in d. It's one of the most popular pieces that is played during a ceremony and just evokes such a joyous feeling.
There's nothing better than hearing a string quartet playing this famous wedding music and it just adds that element of class and is timeless. There wouldn't be a dry eye in the crowd.
Another great idea would be to simply use a solo harpist during the ceremony. They can play any arrangement you decide to use and can add a more unique element to your wedding ceremony and still retain that element of class.
You don't have to stick to the typical wedding music either. You could still use a string quartet, harpist or any other type of musician, but have them play slow modern tracks to add a unique feel to your special day. How about Christina Perri's, a thousand years for example. This song sounds beautiful when played as a classical piece!
Entertainment For The Wedding Reception
You've got your standard DJ's which go down a treat at any wedding. They'll get your guests dancing the night away to many of today's favourites. But there are also some other ideas that might push your night to the next level, and help make it even more memorable.
If any of your guests have travelled from far away, what better way to introduce them to Ireland and our culture than having an Irish dance group perform at your wedding?
If you aren't keen on the "traditional Irish dancers" that often perform at weddings, there are groups like Slide Step who offer a modern take on Irish dancing.
Regardless of your taste in music, there are bands out there for you. There are 80's bands, Jazz bands, Irish bands and so much more. Having live music as your evening's entertainment will add that little something extra that your guests will really appreciate.
What better way for you and your guests to let your hair down than by dancing the night away to some awesome music. Some wedding DJ's can even cater their library to your own tastes. Want more 80's or would you like to keep it current with music from today? The options available are endless.
