Last Minute Wedding Entertainment Ideas

Wedding planning takes time and chances are that you will have spent months (if not longer) pouring over the finer details trying to get everything in place.

Despite this, there is still a chance that you may forget something, and it could end up being something vital.

Wedding entertainment is one of these things, it is incredibly easy to overlook and you could end up feeling that you have made a huge mistake.

However, things can be saved, whilst booking last minute can mean that your choices are more limited than they would be if you booked in advance, there are some great last-minute wedding entertainment ideas that you can try out.


There is something effortlessly cool and chic about a saxophone, which is why it is the ideal addition to your wedding if you are looking for a chilled out vibe during the afternoon, when people are milling about.

There are also a surprising amount of saxophonists around and seeing as you may only need them for a couple of hours, there is a good chance that they will be available to be booked.

Acoustic soloist

Much like a saxophonist, an acoustic soloist is going to be a great way to provide some light music during the afternoon/early evening.

We love the idea that a soloist is not too intrusive, yet will still make a great impression, which is ideal for your big day.


Having a magician at your wedding is becoming much more popular choice, however, it is still one that you can book last minute.

The great thing about magicians is that they are not only incredibly entertaining (and great fun to watch) but they also can help to break the ice between guests that may not know one another, or many other guests in the wedding for that matter.


Why not combine entertainment for your guests with something that they can take home and treasure?

This is something that a caricaturist can do.

A truly creative treat for your guests, if you book a caricaturist then your guests are just not going to be able to resist queuing up and seeing what they create.

Forgetting to book wedding entertainment for the afternoon/early part of the evening is not the end of the world.

Whilst the last minute nature may limit your choices, by shopping around and taking the time to weigh up your options, you are sure to find exactly what you are looking for, and in no time at all you will be able to have peace of mind that everything to do with organising and putting the finishing touches to your wedding is definitely back on track.
