Why book a wedding entertainment service through Airtasker?
When you’ve got a big wedding planned, the day isn’t just about celebrating your union - it also involves keeping your family and friends happy.

So if you’re in the market for wedding entertainers, Airtasker is the perfect place to start looking.
Our platform lets you get as specific as you need to when hiring wedding entertainers. For example, you get to specify the venues in your task post so that only Taskers in the area will put up an offer. This makes it easier for the entertainers to get to your location (no need to worry about them arriving late!).
You also get to dictate the budget, ensuring that the offers you get are more or less within your desired price range. Lastly, you can check out the client reviews before you pick a Tasker.

Top Wedding Entertainment related questions
It all depends on what you, your partner, and your guests will enjoy! You can have a live band, carnival-style booths, a photo booth, games, acrobats, fireworks, a caricaturist, or even a bounce house. Just make sure to check your budget and make sure that your planned entertainment is allowed in your reception venue.
It would largely depend on what you and your guests would consider fun. For example, if your loved ones love to perform, add an open mic or karaoke portion to your reception. If it’s an outdoor reception, put up some game booths or include games in the program. Are you feeling a bit stuck? Ask your wedding planner to brainstorm a list of ideas with you!
First, pick a theme and venue that will be fun and interesting, even without alcohol. Next, set your reception at a time when people won’t be tempted to drink. Hire a good host and a DJ who can set the tone for the party and keep it fun even without alcohol. If you want to keep the “bar” experience without getting your guests intoxicated, consider mocktails, a chocolate fountain, or DIY dessert bars.
A great way to make your once-in-a-lifetime celebration unique and unforgettable is to plan it around a beautiful destination. Not only will your destination wedding photos be spectacular - these venues usually offer their own attractions that’ll keep you and your guests entertained from rehearsal dinner to the morning after the reception. Plus, you could start your honeymoon right then and there.
Surprise performances (either by you as a couple) or by a selected group of people ala flash mob is a great way to liven up the party. If you have a little extra cash or have some connections, you might want to consider hiring a surprise performer for the night.
To stop your guests from getting bored, make sure you stick to the schedule, make sure the food is served on time, put a time limit on toasts and speeches, and have some entertainment throughout the reception. Double-checking your seating chart also helps since tablemates can chitchat and entertain each other in-between parts of the program. Lastly, having a great host is a sure-fire way to keep people entertained even if (knock on wood) technical difficulties or delays arise.

What do wedding entertainment services include?
When you book wedding entertainment for your reception through Airtasker, you can expect your entertainer to provide the equipment and skills needed to liven up your party. The exact inclusions will vary depending on the kind of entertainment you’re looking for, your location and wedding date, if your venue can provide some of the equipment necessary (e.g. a sound system or tables), and the Tasker themselves.
In general, though, you can expect the following when you book wedding entertainment through Airtasker.
Serenade your guests with an evening of music! Our platform can help you find soloists, acoustic singers, bands, singing waiters, DJs, and more. These kinds of entertainers typically bring their own sound systems with them, but if you are providing your own, make sure you get the speakers checked before the big day.
Airtasker can help you find dancers in minutes! You can post a request for fire dancers, traditional dancers (to better reflect you or your partner’s culture), or even surprise your guests by performing as a couple! You can find nearby dance instructors via our platform.
Photo booths serve two purposes: to entertain your guests by letting them take pictures with each other (and some fun props) and to document your special day in a casual, candid way. If you want to get a photo booth for your reception evening, our platform can help you find one that fits your budget and theme in minutes.
Live face painter
A live painter can give your guests an experience to remember, and a souvenir rolled into one. They usually bring their own paints, too. Let everyone experience getting drawn or painted in minutes by hiring an artist near you. It’s got the beauty and timelessness of a photo booth, but with an added touch of interaction and artistry.
If you and your partner have creative family and friends, they’re going to love DIY bars! When you book a Tasker to set up and manage your DIY bar, they’ll typically bring over the ingredients or materials, assist your guests in assembling their creation, and make sure everyone is happy! DIY bars can range from cocktails, chocolate bars, prosecco, cocktails, hot chocolate, ice cream, and more.
Outdoor receptions are perfect for game stations. You can ask a Tasker to set up a scavenger hunt, bring over some casino tables, or bring over giant games like Connect4 and Jenga. If you want a more personal touch to your games, you can post a request for a “Wheel of Fortune” where the items ask guests to dance, sing, or share words of wisdom with the newlyweds.
Finger food booths
Complement your reception by setting up some fun food booths! You can have a Tasker set up a grazing table with cold cuts, cheeses, and wine, or get your favourite café to cater.
Party the night away with some karaoke! When you book a Tasker to manage a karaoke set-up for you, they’ll do the audio-visual set-up, bring songbooks, and help your guests find their favourite tunes.
