How To: Elevate Your Wedding Reception

Every couple wants their wedding to be as exciting and fun as possible, especially during the reception.  A reception is not complete without any wedding entertainment that suits both the young and old.

Everyone should have fun from the start, up to the end of the reception. So, here is a list of unique and fun wedding entertainment ideas on how to keep your reception exciting and your guests enthusiastic.


1. Live Wedding Painters

While live wedding painting is growing in popularity, perhaps the trickiest part is tracking down an artist who fits your style, budget, and location.

Beyond having a custom piece of artwork to hang in your home and cherish for years to come, it's also a once-in-a-lifetime experience—one that you, your partner, your family, and your guests will be able to witness firsthand.


2. Wedding Entertainment

After the solemn rituals, the evening wedding party arrives with excitement and fun. With the food and beverages flowing freely, you need the right music to make the night perfect. Getting the right DJ to play at your wedding can make a huge difference between a fun night and a night that everyone talks about for years to come.


You can figure out the best wedding entertainment by knowing the DJ's experience, having a music genre and style in mind, and bringing a live band.


Don't forget to always have a backup plan. The right person at the helm of the music station will have everyone grooving to their beats, making your wedding all the more memorable.

4. Private Last Dance

The first dance is usually the kick-off to your reception. You and your groom enter a room filled with all the most important people in your life, for the first time as husband and wife. And the two of you share a dance while everyone watches on, snapping pictures, and taking in the new joy with you. It is a moment for everyone to share and celebrate.

However, a private last dance takes on a much more intimate tone. For your private last dance, your guests will be escorted out of the room to get lined up and ready for your grand send-off.  All alone in the room, you just celebrated your first hours as husband and wife. 

One more dance alone, to celebrate the end of the wedding and the start of your life together, just the two of you.
