Alternative Wedding Entertainment Ideas | Unique Reception Performers

If you’re bored of traditional wedding entertainment, fear not. There are loads of alternative acts and performers to choose from, and we’ve listed some of the coolest.

Live Wedding Illustrations

Caricaturists go down a treat at weddings, but if the feature-exaggerating style doesn’t float your boat, look to a live wedding illustrator. Much like caricaturists, illustrators draw your guests, then gift them the finished portrait. It’s part entertainment, part wedding favour.

Styles vary from illustrator to illustrator, so have a scroll through Illustrators Ireland to get a feel for what you might like. Not all the illustrators listed are available for weddings, so send emails before you fall too hard!

Retro Arcade Games

Rent retro arcade games for your reception and delight your dance-floor-avoidant guests. Prop rental companies can supply classics like Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter, and there are lots of pinball or claw options too.

If you want to get your geek on, check out Fab Weddings for arcade game rental. Tokens at the ready!

Singing Waiters

If you really want to put on a show, book some singing wait staff. These acts blend in with servers at your venue, then break out in song during the meal. We’ve seen Irish acts that do everything from opera to swing, so you’ll definitely find something that suits your style.

More Food

More than centrepieces or flower walls, the way to a wedding guest’s heart is food. We’ve all binged at candy cards and on cheese cakes, but alternative food trucks are becoming more and more popular. They’re brilliant for a midnight-snack or a stop-gap between the ceremony and reception.

There’s almost no limit to the type of food that trucks can supply, from ice cream to tacos, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
