Winter is often thought of as one of the most romantic seasons. Images of mulled wine, curling up by a roaring log fire together, and wistful white blankets of snow give us a sense of wonder and fascination. With everyone already in a jovial mood, the festivities of Christmas offer the perfect opportunity for a wedding. Christmas wedding entertainment can be wrapped in a variety of different ways, so here are some of the hottest ideas to warm your merry heart…

Rat Pack and Swing

Let’s start with the music. Of course you could have a DJ or a live party band like most weddings — but it’s Christmas! A special holiday deserves a special soundtrack. Rat Pack singers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. have become synonymous with Christmas time. Even Michael Bublé emerges from his cave when Christmas is back in town. Celebrate your wedding in style with a smooth singer and swing band.

Viva Las Vegas

Whilst we’re on the subject of Rat Pack singers, one theme that has become popular for Christmas weddings in particular are the dazzling lights of the Las Vegas Strip and Hollywood Hills. It pairs so well with the stylish songs of the 50’s and 60’s and there is opportunity for some awesome Christmas wedding entertainment here.

Guests Playing Mobile Casino at Wedding

Casino Tables can be a great addition, providing guests with a cool hang out spot with something fun to do! They also look fantastic as a suave backdrop.

Winter Wonderland

Make your Christmas wedding feel like a fantasy novel. You can fashion your very own winter wonderland and achieve a real Narnia entrance with a few icy touches here and there. There is no better feeling then knowing that your guests are totally immersed in your wedding and all it has to offer.

Stilt Walkers Christmas Wedding Entertainment Idea

Create this experience with a fusion of frosty décor and ice cold Christmas wedding entertainment, such as giant stilt walkers and fantasy characters to greet guests upon arrival.


Enthral guests with magical snowflake ballerinas who will glide across the dance floor with fascinating choreography and grace. Beautiful and elegant, live dancers are an unexpected twist for a wedding and always make a big impact.

The combination of the romantic Christmas season and these sophisticated performers is a classy way to bring a sparkle of the festive season to your wedding day. Why not consider also having them perform with you on your first dance to make that moment really stand out?

Fire Performers

We love fire performers at any wedding, but for Christmas weddings it is such a great alternative to a firework display to end the night. There is something captivating about fire and the way it moves and flickers over the black backdrop of the night.

Watching a highly skilled performer controlling the flames with juggling, fire breathing, body burning or any number of primitive pyrotechnic feats is the best way to heat up a wintery evening.
