Hi is anyone having afternoon entertainment? I know the couple of hours between ceremony and reception can drag for guests who aren’t included in photography session. I’ve thought of a caracturist or magician. Has anyone done that or thinking of it? TIA
Yeah my friend had a magician it were ace xx
All my guests mingled and had fun. We put old school games on the tables like dominoes, pick up sticks, packs of cards etc and they all had a good time x
I had a magician who was also a balloon modeller so adults and children both happy x
I’m in the same boat, may steal some ideas on this post if ok x
We’re having a magician
I got a bouncy castle for the kids to keep them entertained x
We had a magician on arrival whilst cocktails and canopy’s were served. Then it was photos food and then we had a singer and a magic mirror plus a dj for when singer had finished to be honest it was so warm and lovely and went so fast probably didn’t need as much xx
We had bouncy castle for kids a magician and photo booth x

I'm having a late wedding 3pm then should finish at 3.45 then got 45 mins of pic time so by time we done it's 4.30 we have night venue room from 1pm for set ups to go so people can go straight down to it after wedding xxxxxxx
I think alcohol is fine lol x
We had falconry so ya and our guests could hold the birds of prey
We’ve got an acoustic singer coming a bit before and during the wedding breakfast. Hopefully it will prompt a good singalong!!!
Our band are doing an acoustic set during the drinks
We are doing garden games. I personally found magicians very expensive (the ones I got quotes from anyway) giant jenga etc keeps all happy adults and kids and it’s a good laugh! Xx
You shouldn’t have hours of pic taking. For the break between day and night reception we have a whole heap of stuff going on
A Magician is the best option! Ice-breaker when people don’t really know each other, amazement! Please check Grant Maidment out. Pure mind-blowing!

We had a silhouette artist and it was amazing. So different and everyone was fascinated. I justified the price as the silhouettes doubled up as favours. http://www.roving-artist.com/charles-burns

A magician is such a great idea and I can guarantee that you and your guests will be talking about their amazing memories of my magic for days, weeks, months and even years later!

You could do outdoor games pretty much for free!
We had drinks and a magician who circulated round everyone. He was so much more popular than I could have hoped for as well! He went round the tables during the wedding breakfast too between courses and then after the meal did a levitation act with the best woman which everyone loved! Was all amazing!!
