Set A Budget

Budget is certainly important for entertainment because it can easily become one of the most expensive costs for a party. Depending on your choice of band from here, you could be spending a small fortune just for music hire. So set a budget for all entertainment, whether you’re having just a band, DJ or other acts throughout the party that also make an appearance. 

Music Is Essential

Whatever party it may be, the music is definitely essential and something you need at a party. If it’s the type of party that will go late into the night, then a DJ might be preferred. If it’s a slightly shorter party, then a live cover band may be something that’s more suitable. Make sure you have an idea of your set list and if you’re struggling, then ask your guests for recommendations. This is usually standard at weddings because it’s great when a wedding guest’s song gets played. 

Tailor Your Entertainment To The Guests

Depending on your guests, you may want to tailor the entertainment to them. If it’s a children’s party then a mime or clown may go down well. For adults, it might be better to have a magician who can go around the party and show off magic tricks if it’s something that they want. Games could be played as part of the entertainment, whether that’s pin the tail on the donkey or a Mr and Mrs quiz for the bride to be at her hen do.

Book In Advance

When it comes to entertainment, it’s likely that a lot of what you’re going for will get booked up quickly, so it’s good to book your entertainment in advance, even if it’s just to secure the date with a small deposit. Entertainment can vary in terms of costs and therefore that might make a difference in whether you pay the whole fee just before the party or if you’re able to pay it off in installments. 

Have Someone To Host 

If you don’t like the idea of hosting the party on the day or night, then it might be worth hiring an MC to help out with announcements and making sure the event runs smoothly. The MC can also help look after any entertainment and to organize the smooth running of each act, depending on the amount you go for. 

Entertainment is super important for any party, and if you want to make an event that your guests will remember, then this is your opportunity to show off. Remember to set a budget and book your acts in advance. Have someone to host if you don’t want to and keep your entertainment tailored to the type of guests you have.
