The very best entertainment ideas for vintage weddings

Vintage has become a very popular wedding theme of late, and with good reason.

Not only is it an utterly beautiful way to style your wedding, it is also a great way to ensure that everyone has fun.

The only trouble that you can have is finding the right additions to your big day, things such as food and entertainment can be tricky with a vintage styled wedding, with many having to opt for something more modern, such as a DJ.

If you still want to make sure that your wedding has a vintage vibe, then the best way to do this is before the party starts.

Turn that little chunk of time between the ceremony and the evening celebrations, into a vintage delight.

Not sure how to do that? Well take a look at some of our very best entertainment ideas for a vintage wedding.

Welly Wanging

Now this may sound like the strangest idea ever, but a spot of welly wanging at a wedding is actually a great way to make sure that everyone has fun.

Not only this, but welly wanging is incredibly easy (not to mention cheap) to set up and it is something that everyone, no matter their age, can have a go at.

Best of all, you are definitely going to get some fantastic photos during this time.

Rustic hook a duck

We all love playing hook a duck at the fair, so it comes as no surprise that a great vintage addition to your wedding is a rustic hook a duck game.

Ideal for guests big and small, they can all compete to try and win a prize, which could, if you are prepared enough, actually be their wedding favours.

Hula hooping

There is something pretty liberating about moving a circle of plastic around your waist, or hula hooping as it is known.

We can guarantee you that if you lay these out at your wedding, then in no time at all you will have guests trying their hand at this rather tricky (yet hilarious) activity.

Sack race

Another popular childhood activity that you can bring into a wedding day has to be the sack race.

A favourite of many of us during a school sports day, this is an addition that will definitely draw a crowd.

It may be best to advise guests to take any shoes off before they climb into the sacks, and we also suggest that this particular activity happens after all the photos have been taken, else you could end up with some particularly messy looking guests.

Live music

Live music is a popular addition to any wedding, vintage or not.

Having live music creates a great atmosphere and puts everyone in the mood for a party.

Not only this, but you can also tailor the band that you choose to suit your overall theme, so if you have a vintage vibe, then you may decide to have a band that are able to play some classic songs from years gone by.

Planning a vintage wedding and want to get the entertainment right?

Hopefully these ideas are just what you are looking for, and you can organise yourself a wedding that you, and your guests, will never forget.
