You have just got married and can now officially change your Facebook status!… It’s now time for the your Drinks Reception. I think most people want their Drinks Reception to be chilled and fun. After all, t’s the first informal part of the wedding day where the wedding party can have a drink and a good natter post ceremony. Guests can take a sip of their prosecco, enjoy their surroundings whilst chilling out to fabulous Drinks Reception Entertainment.
How to choose the perfect Drinks Reception Entertainment to reflect your afternoon vision
What is going to keep your guest engaged whilst the wedding party are off modelling for your perfect wedding shots? Who will be able to play the right style of music your looking for and generate the desired atmosphere?

Cocktail DJ for the Cocktail Hour
So, the classic option are Harpists, acoustic guitarists, jazz singers, saxophonists and string quartets. But what if you want Drinks Reception Entertainment that’s a little bit different? Our Cocktail DJ Service offers just that. Have a DJ play your choice of music at suitable background level using a small, discreet and clean set up that wont distract whilst your guests mingle. Your Dreamwave DJ can play anything you choose including Acoustic, Hed Kandi, Blues, Ibiza chilled and Jazz to name a few. I myself like the sound and tempo of acoustic versions of popular songs. Personally, I think the musical flexibility of the Cocktail DJ Service is an absolute gem as it allows you to play any genre you fancy at a reasonable price. You could even up the level further by having him perform alongside a live saxophonist!

Drinks Reception Music on a Budget?
I always wish my purse had free refills! Weddings can certainly prove expensive and not every Bride and Groom can afford live entertainment for the whole day. To me, an obvious saving can be made by putting together your own play list and plug it into either the venue’s PA system or hire one. The disadvantage of this is that you wont have a live entertainer to captivate the Drinks Reception audience. But this is a great option for those on a stricter monetary allocation.
Another option is to look at extending your entertainment from the Wedding Ceremony for a couple of hours. This will most likely prove far cheaper than hiring separate musicians.

Music is not the only option……
I have seen these at a number of weddings I have attended recently to keep the guests smiling.
Entertainment for Children
If your inviting children to your wedding, look to avoid bored little people by hiring a face painter or balloon modeller.
Giant lawn games are a classic option to charm your wedding guests.
Enhance your sought after atmosphere by adding lighting and décor. Additional lighting is fantastic for an Evening Drinks Reception. Options include Fairy Lighting, Lanterns, Festoon Lighting and LED Candles.
