The importance of wedding entertainment should never be underestimated. Wedding entertainment has the power to break up the wedding day into more manageable and enjoyable chunks as well as help every part of the celebration flow better.

Entertainment is a great way to indulge yourself and your guests, keeping attendees of all ages and interests enthused and excited.

When planning your wedding entertainment however don’t go with the average. There are unusual acts keeping brides, grooms and guests entertained at wedding receptions up and down the country, here’s the weirdest and most wonderful…

Wedding piñatas

Who said piñatas were reserved for kids’ parties? It’s a fun wedding game that everyone can enjoy, not to mention a creative way to dish out your wedding favours!

Your piñata can even be customised to suit your wedding theme and colour scheme. From wedding cake and engagement ring to heart-shaped and monogrammed, there’s a beautifully designed piñata for every wedding.

Axe throwing

Adding a hint of danger to your wedding day may not sound like a great idea for entertainment but hopping on this trending indoor activity will certainly make your wedding one-of-a-kind.

Axe throwing is an activity made for weddings; here Shropshire-based axe throwing specialist TimberJacks explains why:

“Delight your guests with a fun and unique entertainment experience that will make your celebration stand out with this enjoyable mobile axe-throwing service. No matter your event style, needs, or theme, these professionals can ensure it is unforgettable with their range of axe-throwing activities.”

Axe throwing is also one of the best date night ideas for almost married couples that need a well-deserved break from wedding planning.

Petting zoos

If you adore animals, it would be a shame not to combine two great loves on your wedding day! Hiring a mobile petting zoo will keep adults and children alike thoroughly entertained and educated, as well as make your day memorable.

Circus performers

Put on a real performance at your wedding by hiring acrobats, trapeze artists, fire breathers and other circus performers to entertain your guests. A circus act is a perfect way to kick off your evening festivities, and you can be as creative as you like – it’s your big day after all!

If you’re looking to extend the circus theme, continue the act outside by hiring a selection of fairground rides.

Silent discos

Your wedding playlist isn’t going to satisfy everyone, so why not give your guests a choice of genres with a silent disco?

Silent discos involve you and your guests wearing headphones. You’ll have multiple channels to choose from, meaning everyone can find their groove. For those who don’t feel like dancing or are taking a much-needed break, a silent disco – and the sheer variety of eclectic dance moves it creates – makes for an entertaining watch!

Your choice of wedding entertainment can make your wedding as unique as the both of you, find more tips for creating a wedding that reflects you as a couple here.
