January is peak booking season for couples planning a wedding. The indulgences of Christmas are passed and many Brides and Grooms begin to plan, in earnest ,their upcoming wedding as the New Year progresses.
It may be too soon to outline all the wedding entertainment trends for 2017 but certainly Live Music Management are being asked about certain styles of wedding entertainment in enough numbers to suggest that a trend is emerging.
The following are the wedding entertainment trends we have spotted for 2017.
Festival Style Wedding
Festival themed weddings have increased in popularity over the last ten years and with many Brides and Grooms being very much part of the festival generation we can see no end to this. Popular acts for festival themed weddings include our rock and pop party bands and Live Band Karaoke acts.
The rise in popularity of vintage weddings has led certain wedding bands to costume themselves in retro clothing (think Mumford and Sons crossed with someone from a Jack Wills catalogue) and even put together sets of pop songs played in a vintage style. Live Music Management have some great acts that are stylishly retro and have crowd pleasing sets of pop tunes played in a swing style.
Surprise Wedding Entertainment
Its very hard to come up with original entertainment for a wedding that will please everyone from Auntie Doris to the youngest guest but one thing which is sure to delight all generations is our Pop Up Musicians. Recent weddings have included our stilt band entering the wedding venue in order to entertain and have also included our pop up musicians leading guests from the church to the wedding venue playing music as they go. This has such a brilliant effect on a Summers evening. Other pop up musician events have included the band hiding amongst guests and popping up when least expected to serenade everyone.
Funky Bunch Trivia Quiz
It takes a little imagination to realise that a game show/ general knowledge quiz is going to work brilliantly at a wedding but Funky Bunch is so entertaining that a number of weddings in Australia and The UK have benefited from the Funky Bunch phenomenon. One Best Man even incorporated some of the Funky Bunch magic into his best mans speech.
