Marta BlockContributor

You know that dream you used to have in high school and college? The one where you found yourself at the end of the school year and you'd forgotten to study for an important test, or even forgotten to go to the class? Well, a lot of brides find themselves having that same nightmare the closer it gets to their wedding. If you're worried that you've forgotten to do something important for your wedding day, fret no more. We've got a checklist for all the places you might want to have wedding day entertainment.

Bridal Shower/Bachelorette Party- Ideas include: Belly dancer, Psychic, Fortune teller, Tarot card reader, Karaoke DJ, Limo rental 

Bachelor Party- Ideas include: Belly dancer, Karaoke DJ, Bouncy house, Limo rental, Celebrity impersonator

Rehearsal Dinner- Ideas include: DJ, Pianist, Singer, Psychic, Magician, Celebrity impersonator, Genre entertainment to honor bride's and/or groom's parents, Limo rental

Ceremony: A lot of couples, especially those working without an experienced officiant, overlook music for the ceremony. Even if you don't want songs during the ceremony, you need to provide some sort of music for people as they're being seated. Many guests arrive up to an hour before the wedding starts, you don't want them sitting in silence. Ideas include: Professional officiant, soloist (piano, harp, guitar, flute, vocalist, violin)  or small group (string quartet or trio) to play during seating (starting at least 30 minutes before ceremony), processional music, solo singer for ceremony, recessional music

Cocktail Hour: This is one of the most over-looked, and miss-booked parts of the wedding. The cocktail hour is a great time for guests to mingle and get to know each other while the bridal party is either taking photos or regrouping from the wedding. Most people want subtle entertainment (think background music), but if you want a showier, more engaging form of entertainment think about things like a strolling magician who can lend to a mix and mingle atmosphere, and can be ignored by guests who want to catch up with old friends. Ideas include: Guitar player, Harpist, Pianist, Strolling magician, Belly dancer, Light Jazz Music, Photo Booth rental, Celebrity impersonator, Caricature artistPsychic,  Children's entertainment

Reception: Band or DJ, Dancers, Children's entertainment
