No matter what the occasion, choosing the right entertainment can turn a good evening into a truly memorable event. Despite a glamorous location or delicious food it is usually the entertainment that guests remember. You may choose to organise everything yourself with the help of a party hire company or you can hire an event organiser to handle the details for you. There are many different types of entertainment to choose from, so it is important to pick the right entertainment to suit the type of event.
The type of entertainment that is appropriate for a wedding depends on the wedding itself. With couples choosing between formal and more traditional weddings, to holding their ceremony and reception at the beach or in a garden, the atmosphere of their wedding is largely determined by the location. Once a couple has decided where the wedding is to be held all other decisions are generally influenced by this choice. A couple might also have more than one set of entertainment, as they may have musicians at the ceremony as well as at the reception. A more formal day could involve having a string quartet at the church and then a jazz band at the reception. Depending on a couple’s budget they may have a soloist at the ceremony and a DJ later on. For a couple to choose entertainment that their guests will remember they should match the type of musicians to suit the style of wedding.
A corporate event can range from a lunchtime picnic to a formal black tie evening. Not only will the style of event influence the choice of entertainment but also the guests themselves. A formal evening with important clients might not be the place for dancers in skimpy outfits, nor would you choose an evening of classical music for the Christmas party of the teenage staff of a fast food outlet. Entertainers at corporate events don’t have to just include musicians. A whole range of entertainment can be hired to impress your guests, from magicians, dancers, ice sculptors, comedians and even acrobats. Find something that will stand out and make the event stand out in your guest’s memories. If they don’t forget your event they won’t forget your company either, and that makes for a successful evening.
Parties and more
Choosing entertainment that is original can be a challenge but the key is to pick something to suit your audience as well as something that will stand out. Fund raisers could have anything, depending on the venue, whether you hired a band, an animal farm or a celebrity MC. After a run of attending friend’s twenty-first birthday parties the DJ’s may be wearing a little thin, so why not try something like a bush dance or hire a karaoke machine. A clown at a children’s party is fairly standard, as is hiring a fairy entertainer for a little girl’s birthday, so how about getting the snake handler? The children certainly won’t forget that one.
