Your Sussex Wedding - October/November 2020 (Issue 87)

R IS FOR ROOTS Embrace your heritage with a traditional dance routine or musical act. S IS FOR SAX From a cool Ibiza club vibe, to the smooth sounds of jazz, a live saxophonist can create the ambience of your choice, while adding a fun and interactive edge to your evening bash. We suggest Fuller DJ, based in Haywards Heath, who can be joined by sax players. As a musician himself, he understands the intricacies of playing with other musicians, giving your guests a show like no other.

Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race? Why not hire a drag performer to make a surprise appearance. If you love to sing, prepare a super-romantic surprise performance for your new husband or wife. Perhaps, you’re a member of a choir – can you organise for them to sing at your ceremony? V IS FOR VOCALIST Employ the soothing tones of a solo vocalist to bring that special something to your ceremony as you walk down the aisle or sign the register. They can also add an air of sophistication to your drinks reception. W IS FOR WAITERS For the ultimate surprise singing waiters are often hilarious, brilliantly entertaining, and will, without doubt, provide a talking point far beyond the day itself. Z X IS FOR X-PERTS Ok, we cheated here! But in all seriousness, your professional entertainers are experts in their field. Be sure to tap into their wealth of knowledge and experience with a pre-wedding meeting. Nobody knows how to fill a dancefloor like they do. IS FOR ZZZ Time for bed, but no need to let the evening fizzle out. Be sent off in style with a sparkler guard of honour as you bid farewell. Y IS FOR YAKETY-YAK If your guestlist is filled with folk who haven’t seen each other for donkey’s years, sometimes less is more. They’ll love time to catch up, so consider periods of downtime or chill out zones away from all the action. Q IS FOR QUIZ Pop an icebreaker quiz on the tables to get guests talking over dinner, or host a Mr & Mrs gameshow extravaganza on the dancefloor before the revelries begin in earnest. ENTERTAINMENT 63
