Are you into a bit of magic? Booking some close-up magicians for your wedding can help entertain your guests between courses and leave them scratching their heads a bit too! Take a look at some of the top tricks to perform at a wedding that will be sure to dazzle your guests. Depending on who you hire, some magicians can tailor tricks to fit them around you and your partner – an ideal way to make it more personal and special to the two of you.
If you wanted a wedding in Vegas, but it just wasn’t to be, why not bring Vegas to you with a casino at your wedding? A casino night is a great idea as it will give your guests the chance to mingle and have fun, and it can also help provide a theme for your wedding if you lack a bit of direction. You can source equipment to help you run your own wedding casino night online using directory websites like sourceme who also have details for event management companies who can run the casino on your behalf. Throw in some prizes for your guests rather than actual money – the only ones who should be broke after the wedding is you!

Photo booths are becoming standard at a wedding, but for many, the concept is still a novelty and is a great way to get your guests to have fun while giving you memories to keep too. There are different types of booths available including video booths and karaoke booths, and you can also incorporate different themes if you’d like to suit the interests of you and your partner. If money is tight and your budget doesn’t allow for a photo booth, you could always enjoy making a DIY photo booth that will still offer the same entertainment for you and your guests.
