You have the perfect venue for your event, a plan for stunning décor, and a menu your guests will salivate over. But what about entertainment?
The right entertainment can take any event to the next level, but the wrong entertainment can turn out cringe-worthy. Maybe you’ve been to a few events where the entertainment just wasn’t up to par, and it ruined the whole night. The last thing you want is one thing to distract from all your planning.
That’s why we’ve put together a few tips on choosing the right entertainment for your event!
Dazzle your guests
You don’t want to go over-the-top with your entertainment, but you definitely don’t want it to be lackluster either. Your best bet is to go for something spectacular because it’s better to have extra stunning entertainment than a show that just feels disappointing.
Know your tone
In order to give your event a cohesive feel, you should have a clear idea of the style and mood you want to convey. You don’t want the entertainment you choose to feel inappropriate or out of place your event. After all, you wouldn’t hire burlesque dancers for a corporate event. Your entertainment should match the tone you decided on when you began planning and present a style that matches your venue and décor.
Think about your audience
Speaking of choosing appropriate entertainment, be aware of everyone on your guest list before choosing entertainment. Consider their demographics: How old are your guests? Do they have similar interests? What is their faith or political background? When you fail to take your audience into consideration, your entertainment choice may come off as tone-deaf or even offensive to some of your guests, and that’s something you definitely want to avoid.
Keep your theme in mind
Entertainment that matches your theme or the style of your venue can help create that cohesive feeling that makes an event stand out. Think of entertainment as just like any other component of your event, like food or décor, and make sure all the pieces fit neatly together to create a memorable event for all your guests.
When you’re planning an event, don’t wait until the last minute to choose your entertainment. Keep your venue and theme in mind as you consider entertainment options and pick something that will enhance the atmosphere and leave a lasting impression on every person who attends your event.
