Great entertainment ideas for a small wedding

Whilst there are plenty of couples who want a large and grand wedding day, there are equally those who love the idea of keeping their wedding day as small and intimate as possible.

These smaller weddings don’t necessarily mean that you have to tone down the entertainment that you are providing your guests with.

That said, you are going to need to make sure that the entertainment that you have doesn’t overwhelm your wedding and that your guests all have the best time possible.

With this in mind, we have put together our guide to some of the best entertainment ideas for smaller weddings.

Acoustic solo or duo

A live band might not be the best idea for a small and intimate wedding, as this type of entertainment can be quite overwhelming.

That said, you don’t have to shy away from live music for a small wedding.

You might just need to think about something a little calmer. Such as an acoustic performer.

Acoustic performers are wonderful and they fit right in with a smaller wedding set up.

They don’t have to be a solo act, you can also get acoustic duos and even a small group too.


Another great option for a small wedding is a pianist.

You can find pianists that are happy to play across a number of genres, which is great if you have a mix of guests coming to your wedding.

A pianist is not only a beautiful form of music to listen to, but it is also nice and quiet and calm too.

Ideal for those smaller weddings.

Wedding DJ

You can’t beat a wedding DJ for the very best in wedding entertainment.

A wedding DJ can fit in with any type of wedding set up and you can find a wedding DJ which is going to work best for you too.

A great quality wedding DJ will be able to work with you to make sure that your wedding reception is everything that you want it to be.

Which means that you can make sure that every single one of your guests is up and dancing the whole night through.


A magician is an awesome idea for a smaller wedding.

Not only are they great fun (not to mention fantastic for all ages) but a magician will also be able to get up close and personal with your guests should you be organising a smaller wedding.

A magician can be hired to walk around your guests when they are waiting between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast, which is a time that can seem to drag on sometimes.

As you can see, there are so many wonderful wedding entertainment options to consider for your small wedding.

Why not take a look and see what options are open to you for your wedding day?
