If you've ever attended a wedding - you know the drill. Romantic ceremony, chit-chat over canapés, dinner and dancing. And while many, if not most, brides are blissfully happy with their own take on this tried- and-true formula - and for good reason - there's an increasing number looking to keep their guests guessing with a unique take on evening entertainment.

The Question Is - How Far Would You Go?

At the safer end of the scale, photo booths and live caricaturists give guests something to giggle about, as well as providing them - and you - with a cute keepsake to add to the album. They're also at the more affordable end of the spectrum. From there the possibilities get bolder, more bizarre and more likely to break the bank.

Imagine stunning your friends and family with an impromptu fireworks display; or opening the dance floor not with the bridal waltz but with a fiery flamenco act or a beguiling belly dancer.

Themed weddings lend themselves particularly well to offbeat entertainment. Barns or vineyards can pull off square dancing or even a mechanical bull to really ramp things up, while medieval themes are enhanced by magicians and court jesters. For those not afraid of being upstaged by more than the bridesmaids, there are even venues where you can wow your audience with a live audience with a live circus-style trapeze show.

Couples planning a daytime reception shouldn't feel constrained by convention either with original options including donning hats and gloves for high tea or involving everyone in a barefoot bowling competition - location permitting!

Interactive is also in at weddings. Mirror Me booths from Rentertainment are stylish and visually good looking, compliementing any venue.  

And a great momento for all your guests are wedding Flip Books,. that give something back to your guests that they can keep forever.  Who'd have thought your wedding entertainment could double as wedding favours.

From the whimsical to the wonderfully weird, anything goes - it's your day.
