When planning a wedding it’s easy to over look entertaining your guests. The last thing you want is for your loved ones to be hanging around bored or not being able to get to know one another. Break the ice and up the antics with these fun entertainment ideas by WWW sponsors Warble Entertainment xo Lou
1. Think big
There’s no harm in going all out – after all, it is your one BIG day! Why not add some height to your drinks reception with stilt walkers to mingle with your guests and create real buzz. Or, and this is the ultimate in big – hire a Giant Snow Globe. Yes, one does exist and yes it is absolutely awe inspiringly amazing and quite possibly the most romantic entertainment you will ever see!
The most common surprise wedding entertainment is singing waiters, which always go down really well but why not add a twist with surprise singing policemen or firemen. Or add a subtler and unexpected surprise with living statues – they look so real your guests would never know they weren’t until they get a shock tap on the shoulder!
3. Turn up the heat
Book a fire show during your evening reception – the danger element and stunning visual display is 100% guaranteed to impress all your guests and leave them with a unique experience and an everlasting memory.
4. Augment your theme
If you are having a theme to your big day, then why not really bring it to life with entertainment? For a 1920’s theme, hire some flapper dancers to ignite the dance floor shenanigans. Or, if you are considering a vintage theme, book a barber shop quartet to add an authentic element.
5. Unique and Quirky
You know what it’s like with a close group of friends – weddings have a snowball effect so you end up attending at least 2 -3 a year. Make sure yours stands out from the crowd by adding some unique entertainment such as a living table to serve your reception drinks, a balloon boutique to add a splash of colour or a living tree for a great quirky twist!
It was so hard to choose the images for this wonderful wedding celebration today. As there were two wonderful days of celebration for this couple’s union to squeeze into one feature.
Wendy and Sunny were married over a weekend back in August and combined their two cultures by holding a Sikh wedding before their civil wedding. They hoped to create a wedding which was fun, colourful and home made while showing off their personalities.
There is so much loveliness. I adore the colour, the portraits and the crafted touches. A huge amount inspiration right here to get your creative juices flowing this morning.
Thanks so much today goes to the ever brilliant Babb Photo for providing the images.

I must admit I actually found this very wedding venue when I’ve planned mine and G’s wedding for fun. The woodland setting is so very magical and made for one very unique celebration. I have been soooo eager to feature a wedding set here it’s untrue.
Eva and Mark wanted to create a simple day with great food and music. By choosing their top priorities it made planning all the more efficient. Eva looked stunning in her flowing gown and veil, while Mark donned tweed and the maids were pretty in green. Their natural yet meaningful day was just perfect.

What a special wedding celebration I have to share with you this morning. Why I hear you ask? Because it was all crafted and planned straight from the heart.
Ella and Chris were married last summer at Ells’a parents B&B in a meaningful outdoor ceremony. And for the reception? An amazing stripe marquee which set the tone for their pretty as a picture home made décor. I especially adore how all of their family and friends came together to make the perfect day for this lovely couple. Bohemia beautiful.

Are you still stuck in a rut finding the perfect look for your wedding day? There are so many ideas out there, which I know is equally brilliant yet totally tricky to stick with one idea and go for it.
This lovely shoot which was sent over to me by Sam from Paper Angel Photography could be just the solution to all of your styling woes. Multi coloured pretty blooms nestled alongside ribbons and vintage attire works so wonderfully with the outdoor setting. LOVE.

“It all started when I met Hannah from Bride n bloom – an awesome florist who is amazing when it come to creating some SUPER GORGEOUS floral arrangements! I’d always wanted to do a styled shoot to have the freedom to create ideas that were in my head – Hannah was totally on the same page and we came up with an idea for an outdoor, colourful ribbon filled shoot with furniture, flower crowns and beautiful vintage dresses. We pinned like crazy to put all these ideas together and started the hunt for other suppliers to work with.”
“For the dresses and suits – we knew we wanted something different, unique and vintage. Lynda from Rock Follies Vintage in Worcester was just the lady! Along with all her vintage clothing, for men and women – she has a selection of original vintage bridal gowns!!! Original!!!! Oh my… They were just perfect! On the day Lynda used her experience to style the models in a selection of dresses and suits. What a gem she is! If you want something different to wear on your wedding day – then this is the lady to talk to!”
