The best (and most creative) ways to entertain your wedding guests
13 November 2014, 13:00
Nairobi - Having some form of entertainment at your wedding not only keeps your guests busy while you are having your photos taken, but will also ensure that your special day is talked about for some time to come.
Wedding entertainment is no longer limited to a wedding singer or a DJ playing “YMCA”. There are so many options available that will suit any budget and style.
Wow your guests with a magician or be even more exotic by having fire dancers, trapeze artists, fire spitters or belly dancers.
Wedding singers, live bands and DJ’s are always a good choice and will get your crowd on the dance floor.
Caricaturists (or cartoonists) are very popular at wedding receptions overseas. A caricaturist will sketch a customized cartoon portrait for each of your guests.
The actual drawing time can be as fast as 2 to 5 minutes per person.

Your guests will be amazed at the caricaturist’s ability to capture the true likeness of everyone and they’ll be super chuffed that they can take their portrait home with them.
Having a photo booth at your wedding is becoming an increasingly popular trend, especially amongst trendy couples that want something a little more personal and different by which to remember their wedding day and the special people that celebrated it with them.
Entertain the kiddies at your wedding with a face painter, a magician, a balloon artist, a favourite cartoon character, jugglers or stilt walkers.
For a fun and delicious option for adults, consider having a milkshake bar, chocolate fountain, fondue, ice cream van or cocktail bar. These options will definitely keep your guests busy, while providing them with sweet treats.
Here’s another idea that we love. Provide your guests with a blank canvas and paints that they can use as a guestbook. Afterwards you can hang their “artwork” in your home.
