Choosing the Perfect Entertainment for Your Wedding Day
Entertainment is a key element of every wedding day, whether you're planning some atmospheric wedding music to accompany you down the aisle, thinking of booking a talented close-up magician or looking for wedding singers to serenade you on the dance floor. Choosing the right entertainment is key, and we hope these tips will help you with your planning.
Suit your Theme
First things first, when planning your wedding entertainment, choose styles that suit the theme of your day. If, for example, you're planning a rustic, country wedding in the summer, you might decide to have garden games in the afternoon and an informal band in the evening. On the other hand, if you love the idea of a more formal, evening celebration, perhaps a string quartet, close-up magician and funky DJ are the order of the day.
Consider your Guests
It might sound obvious but, when planning your wedding entertainment, it's important to think about what your guests will enjoy. After all, happy guests will result in a great party! If you're inviting children, plan some entertainment to suit them. This might include a treasure hunt in the gardens at Curradine Barns or even an evening facility. If any of your guests don't know each other, you might consider something like a ceilidh in the evening, a great way to get your guests mingling and dancing together. Equally, a band or DJ playing a range of music to suit most tastes is a good idea.
As with all elements of your wedding, it's essential to address a few practicalities when planning your wedding entertainment. The first consideration might be your budget. While it's a wonderful idea to have a live band or an incredible wedding singer, make sure you stay within your planned spend. Keep prices down by perhaps choosing a digital playlist instead of having live music for the entire day.
It's also essential to think about the size of your wedding and the entertainment that will work most effectively. A large band could overpower a smaller, more intimate wedding while a lavish celebration needs equally grand entertainment!
Plan Every Element
When thinking about your wedding entertainment, it's easy to consider only your evening party. Your entertainment begins the moment your guests arrive, with music to welcome them, music for your ceremony and perhaps entertainment during the welcome drinks. Make a plan that starts at the beginning and doesn't finish until the dance floor clears!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to hire a bellydancer? The typical rate for a solo bellydance set in the New York area ranges from $250-$400. We perform everywhere from intimate family parties to opulent weddings and corporate events and a single show is 15-30 minutes in length.
Today many Middle Eastern countries forbid women to perform the dance. During the 1950's, bellydancing was declared illegal in Egypt. The law was overruled, however, this was on the basis that belly dancers would no longer show their stomachs & that law still remains in effect.
Although belly dancing originated as a social and celebratory dance, it later became forbidden in public spaces because of restrictions on viewing women's bodies. As Middle Eastern cultures spread around the world through a diaspora, so did the practice of belly dancing.
Belly dance is a difficult dance form to learn, and the more you practice the faster you'll progress. It may look easy but it's a very specific way of moving your body and it takes time for your body to absorb the movements. We encourage you to enjoy the journey of learning this most beautiful dance form.
What does it cost? We can't give a quote until we know the details of your event, but most shows are between $250-$350. Performance fees depend on the timing, location and the length of the show, as well as which props are used. Saturdays from 8-10pm are peak times.
