15 NEW ideas to shake up your wedding entertainment!
“Nominate two people to leave your table and swap places with other banished guests.”
Um… so this isn’t your average wedding meal. Of all the wedding traditions I’ve heard, banishing guests from their comfortable seats isn’t familiar… but it’s really, really funny.
Likewise asking guests to rearrange themselves in alphabetical order – but silently.
Or nominating one person per table as the ‘queen’ of that table, and assigning relevant duties and crowns / tiaras for the rest of the evening.
These are all alternative wedding entertainment ideas I’ve come across in the last few weeks – and most are via lovely UK wedding photographer Hannah Hall. Hannah’s a member of English Wedding (which makes me very proud and a little bit fan-girly)… and her wedding photography blog is a source of fabulous wedding inspiration!
Hannah’s shared some favourite ideas for alternative wedding entertainment on her blog, and I wanted to share her tips (and pics!) with you lovely lot! So here’s an inspiring wedding photography collection of bouncy castles, roaming brass bands – a hot trend for 2023 weddings! – basketball, pass the parcel, magicians, wedding illustrators, welly wanging, surprise sax players, beer pong and wedding pinatas for your Friday. Enjoy!

4. Wedding magicians can be amazing – you really do have to do your research and pick a good one, so don’t rush to book, and always try to check them out at a wedding show before you do!
