10 Outdoor Wedding Entertainment Ideas that Shine

There are dozens of ways to turn an outdoor wedding into the wedding day of your dreams. Every detail plays into the wedding atmosphere: the venue, wedding menu, décor, and the outdoor wedding entertainment that pulls it all together.

Jugglers

Jugglers are an unexpected surprise—and a versatile one. Jugglers can adapt to any outdoor wedding atmosphere, providing a fun addition to a country fair or a whimsical touch to a garden wedding. For a circus-themed wedding, look for a juggler with a main stage comedy act that keeps your guests (of all ages) in stitches before or after the meal.

Garden Fairies

For a touch of whimsy, add garden fairies to your outdoor wedding entertainment line-up. Professional garden fairies can make your guests feel like they are in the midst of a fairy-tale wedding.

Magician

A magical outdoor wedding wouldn’t be the same without a magician to liven up the wedding reception. The right magician can be an atmospheric detail, mingling in with the guests and doing tricks with a custom flair, or a main stage entertainer that brings magic to every moment (or as a child’s entertainer in a special kid zone). For a personalized addition to the wedding reception, hire a professional who can take details about the newlyweds and turn them into a custom act that guests’ll talk long after the wedding.

Food Servers

The right food presentation can significantly add to wedding atmosphere, especially when your favorite wedding foods are served by a professional entertainer specifically attired to the theme. Be creative; contact an entertainment agent who can select the right entertainers that fit with the theme.

Face Painters

Guests expect face painters at a country fair, so why not include them in your fair-themed wedding? Face painters are a draw for guests, both young and old. Professional face painters can even customize their designs to the occasion, such as fairy designs for a whimsical garden wedding or animal faces for a circus theme.

These entertainers tower over a crowd, making guests feel like they are part of an event that is larger than life. Stilt walkers are an awesome addition to a circus-themed wedding, a whimsical or unique event, or a country fair.

Wedding Painter

A wedding painter captures the moment like no one else, as well as your guests’ attention. Hire an entertainer that creates a memento that you can cherish for years to come and use to relive the beauty of your outdoor wedding again and again.

Psychic/Tarot Entertainer

To take outdoor wedding entertainment to the next level, hire a psychic and tarot entertainer who can tell guests’ fortunes and predict their futures. This can be a real conversation starter, giving guests the chance to discuss the news delivered in a more fantastic way than any fortune cookie.

Dancers

Hiring dancers for an outdoor wedding can check off many boxes; dancers can create the flash mob that serves as an unforgettable surprise, can play a key part in including your ethnicity in your big day, or can reinforce an atmosphere centered around Mardi Gras or another fantastic festival. When choosing the right dancers, don’t settle for amateurs; contact an entertainment agent to hire high-quality entertainers that can perform authentic dances in the right attire.

Humane statues

Human statues are a unique way to welcome your guests. These entertainers are a memorable way to give your guests a taste of what’s to come. Human statues let your guests know that this is not just another outdoor wedding; your wedding is a distinct occasion to be reveled and enjoyed.
