The “I Do” Crew: what kind of wedding entertainment should we book?

We ask the I Do Crew what kind of entertainment they booked for their wedding.

Meet the “I Do” Crew

Each month we’re asking our ”I Do” Crew the questions on every recently engaged persons mind, from choosing a wedding photographer to writing a guest list, our trio of recent or soon-to-be newly-weds share their insights into planning a wedding. So far we’ve asked how they chose their wedding venue, when to send wedding invitations, and how to write a wedding guest list.

This month we’re asking the I Do Crew what kind of entertainment they booked for their weddings.

The recently married one: Married in August 2018, describes her wedding as ‘a perfect day better than I ever imagined.’

The groom: Married in July 2018, describes his wedding as ‘a chilled and fun day, with loads of our friends and family.’

The bride-to-be: Getting Married this month! describes her upcoming wedding as ‘the day I marry my best friend surrounded by the people we love the most.’

We ask the I Do Crew what kind of entertainment they booked for their wedding:

The recently married one

We had a wedding band and because it was a summer wedding and we were lucky with the weather, we also had lawn games to keep our guests entertained.

The groom

My friend was the DJ, we also made a killer playlist for when he wasn’t on.

The bride-to-be

We’re having a DJ and a surprise our guests don’t know about yet! As we have 8 small children at our wedding we plan to hold a treasure hunt for them in the 26 acre grounds. We will have a couple of nannies to look after them so the parents can enjoy themselves too!

The wedding coordinator

We love a good party here at Leigh Court, and we’ve seen it all from live bands, to circus troupes, to bumper cars on the lawns. I recommend at least having a DJ so you know your music is in safe hands. Your wedding venue will have suppliers they’ve worked with before if you need inspiration.

Next month, we ask the I Do Crew whether it’s important to book a wedding venue with accommodation.
