Unique Wedding Vendors You Should Have
You’ve said “I do,” exchanged rings, and now it’s time to party. After cocktails and dinner, it’s essential to keep the fun flowing! While opting for more traditional wedding vendors and entertainment options is a perfectly fine choice, some couples are always searching for ways to stand out and make their wedding different and personalized — and hiring unique wedding vendors is a great way to do just that. Don’t know where to start? We’re here to help!
Discover 5 unique wedding vendors to help spice up the entertainment:
Give your guests a unique wedding favor by way of caricature. You can have an artist set up a table during the reception, where your guests can have their portrait drawn at any time during the party. It’s a fun way to remember the day, and can also make for a great piece of framed memorabilia for you and your partner.
2. Ferris wheel
Seriously. This is a thing. If your venue has a lot of open space, consider bringing in fairground rides. A Ferris Wheel provides many photo opportunities and a great view of the festivities below. If you have the room and budget for other rides, this is a great way to give guests a break from the dance floor, and it will certainly be a talking point both during and after the festivities!
3. Food trucks
If you plan on partying late, you may want to furnish some midnight munchies. From tacos to ice cream to banh mi, the options are endless. Give your reception a little kick and your guests a little energy to keep dancing.
4. String quartet
Nothing beats a little live music during your ceremony, and it’s also a lovely way to begin the first dance. It also doesn’t have to be a quartet. Consider a harpist, cellist, or even a live band. And don’t worry: Hiring a string quartet doesn’t mean you have to listen to classical music all night. Groups like Vitamin String Quartet can perform all your favorite hits, from “Royals” by Lorde to “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.
5. Photo booth
You’ll probably have a professional wedding photographer capturing the formal shots, but give your guests a chance to take funny photos (with props, of course) and goof around in a photo booth! Make sure that they can receive prints on the spot — and with technology these days, photos can be emailed or sent to your phone instantly. And if you love vintage, Polaroids are having a moment right now.
