If you thought hanging at the beach was cool, then you’ll love these unique entertainment ideas for your destination wedding!
Not only is fire dancing a sit-at-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of performance, but it’s one of the most highly requested forms of entertainment for destination weddings. Fire shows typically include various objects that can sustain a large enough flame to create an exciting visual effect for an audience. Oftentimes, they’re choreographed with music and consist of “dangerous” stunts to get the crowd to “ooh” and “ahh.” Need we say more?
If the groom and his buddies are cigar fans, you’ll be pleased to know that many resorts can bring the art of cigar rolling to your reception. Guests can enjoy watching and learning from the expert, while of course, smoking their very own freshly rolled cigar. Not only is it a fun activity for cigar enthusiasts, but it’s something they’re bound to talk about for years to come!
Any romantics out there? If you are, consider having a harpist play at your destination wedding! Not only is a harp the epitome of elegance and love, but it’s more versatile than a piano and takes up less space than a string quartet. It also produces a much fuller sound than other instruments and can essentially be transported anywhere, making it a great option for your beach wedding.
Live Artist Drawings
Allow your guests to have some fun of their own as they watch a real-life artist sketch their portrait right before their eyes. Oftentimes, these artists will impress you with their caricature skills, which are usually completed within minutes! You might also find an artist that specializes in landscape drawings or paintings, making it a great souvenir to bring back home with you.
In addition to the live artist drawings, a lot of resorts have connections with other local artisans that will gladly bring their craft to your guests. Hat making is a rather popular activity, where the vendor will teach you how to make the perfect sunhat or fedora out of nothing but palm tree leaves or bamboo…talk about getting “one with nature!”
Want to create a special wedding cocktail for your big day? Then, consult with your resort’s mixologist! They’ll work with you to concoct the perfect signature drink for and your wedding guests. Perhaps the bride and groom have separate tastes? No worries – your mixologist can help you come up a “his” and “hers” drink to reflect both your personalities!
