Instagram image credit: @different.weddings.au At this time of year, some of our more daring couples do choose to go all out with their wedding theme, putting pumpkin on the breakfast menu, going crazy with candelabras, and opting for a rustic red, orange, and black colour scheme. That said, whether you're channelling alternative bride and groom vibes, or your wedding just happens to fall on or around Halloween, you'll definitely want to incorporate some thrilling tracks into your evening reception. Whether your wedding date is coincidentally close to the 31st October, or you've chosen it specifically, your guests will be sure to appreciate creepy tracks on the DJ set list. The very best DJs at Ntertain will always be sure to slide in a horrific hit or two for the occasion. That said, it's always a good idea to chat things through with your DJ. No matter if you have specific songs in mind, or you have created an entire playlist from RSVP requests, communicate with your DJ to rustle up the perfect sound for your party. And, without further ado, here are 11 of Ntertain's favourite devilishly great hits, guaranteed to get everyone up and dancing. 11. Highway to Hell - AC/DC 10. Monster Mash - Bobby Pickett 9. Pet Sematary - Ramones 8. Monster - Kanye West 7. People are Strange - Doors 6. Tainted Love - Marilyn Manson 5. Disturbia - Rihanna 4. Black Magic - Little Mix 3. Red Right Hand - Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds 2. Zombie - Jamie T 1. Thriller - Michael Jackson

Pink and frills don't cut it for some of our bestie bride-to-be's. Many have interests that fall way outside of L plates and phallic straws, interests which can be easily incorporated into a perfectly personalised hen do. If the hen in question is getting married over the autumn season, a Halloween Hen is ideal for the main gal in your life who loves all-things alternative. It's sure to be a scream. Halloween Hens are arguably one of the easiest themes to arrange. Even if you choose to do things at a country barn or at someone's home to keep costs down, you will find lots of fantastic decorations on the high street. If you are hiring somewhere private and are looking for a monster band for entertainment, don't forget to give Ntertain a call! That said, if you are looking to treat your hen to something spooktacular, there are a whole host of spine-tingling locations around the UK. Here are just five of Ntertain's favourites. 1. Alton Towers, Scarefest Alton Towers is always a fantastic hen weekend away. With themed hotels and restaurants, an indoor waterpark, and a spa on offer, there a heck of a lot to do beyond the park. As if the thrills and spills of the likes of Nemesis, Wicker Man, and the Smiler, wasn't enough, Alton Towers really goes the whole hog over Halloween. Promising 'spooks, frights and thrills for everyone — on selected dates in October & November Alton Towers becomes the Home of Halloween.' Wooooo... 2. York City Break Hens love York, but did you know that this quaint, picturesque British town is actually the most haunted city in the whole of Europe? Eeek. Do what you've got to do in York. The nights out are incredible. The Shambles and restored buildings are beautiful. And the real, actual ghosts, well they're aplenty! It isn't hard to turn a York hen weekend into a terrifying trip. Simply book your group on a York Ghost Tour. As you meander through the cobbled streets, you will see the city's perilous past come to life before your eyes. Creepy. 3. The Dungeons Speaking of cities' perilous pasts, why not pay a visit to one of The Merlin Group Dungeons. It makes for a fine, freaky, frightening, autumn afternoon. Whisking you and your gals back as far as 3000 years in local history, tours last approximately 75-90 minutes and are available in Blackpool, Edinburgh, London and York. With live shows, immersive exhibitions and absolutely awesome actors involved, The Dungeons is a wicked attraction that will thrill all your senses. Be warned. 4. Warner Bros. Studio Tour, London Who isn't a Potterhead? Let's be honest. You may well think you're going tame with a visit to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour. But think again. You're forgetting all the evil doings that occurred throughout this globally-acclaimed children's franchise. Expect Death Eaters galore, curses, hexes, and creepy creatures. For 2018, the iconic Great Hall set will be decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, as seen on screen in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. And it's hands on too! Once your hens have swotted up at the attraction's wand choreography workshop, you can test out your newly learned wand techniques as you battle with Death Eaters who are storming the Hogwarts Bridge. 5. Craig Y Nos Castle, Wales Beautiful, Wales, isn't it? All the rolling countryside, beautiful nature, rugged coastlines. Peaceful, some would say. The perfect spot for a serene hen party. That is, of course, unless you're staying at the Craig Y Nos Castle. The scariest and most haunted castle in the country. Stay with ten or more of your ladies to take part in the ultimate Halloween hen party, during which those all-important hen party tipples will be served by Steve Graham. The ghost. Enjoy.

Every so often on the Ntertain Blog, we like to allow our brides and grooms to step back from the hustle and bustle of wedding planning. It doesn't have to be all go-go-go, although, for a large proportion of the wedding planning period, it will indeed feel like it. It's also nice to have an understanding of the day itself, of the little customs we don't really consider because they are so ingrained in our culture. Previously, rather than selecting music for the father-daughter dance, we've explored why it features as part of your Big Day. We've also covered the much-loved moment, the cutting of the wedding cake. As an entertainment company, we so frequently assist our couples with perhaps one of the most significant aspects of their wedding day, that is, the first dance. Whether you choose to have a DJ play your first dance song, or opt for a live band or musicians, we can guarantee your guests will be on the edge of their seats waiting to discover the music you've chosen to represent your relationship together. But where does it all come from? Why is the First Dance such a big deal, let's take a look. First dances throughout time The first dance, in itself, is a traditional part of many events, not merely weddings. Quite simply, it is the opening dance at various formal balls, and is typically taken by the guest of honour. Throughout history, the first dance has been regarded such an integral element of the occasion, that it was denoted by specific terms, for example, the minuet of 17th century France or the quadrille in the British Victorian era. Today, the first dance is an extremely popular part of contemporary weddings. At the start of the 1900s, the first dance was considered good wedding etiquette, although the bride and groom did not take centre stage solo. Once all guests graced the dance floor, the bride and groom would join the crowd as they continued to dance around them. In the past, ballroom would be the waltz of choice; however, this form of dance has gradually become less popular. Nowadays, brides and grooms often use the first dance to encapture the essence of their relationship. From selecting 'your song' or making a statement by choosing a track that's out of the ordinary, to mastering a choreographed routine or enjoying a heartfelt slow dance, you can now bend and mould the rules of this wonderful tradition and really allow your character as a couple to shine through. To book your bespoke evening entertainment package, speak with a friendly member of the Ntertain team today.

Instagram photo credit: @alovelygreenowl September is back-to-school season, and so what better time is there to consider how we can involve youngsters in our ceremony proceedings. Whether you have children of your own, beloved nieces and nephews, or you're close to the children of your family and friends, there's something truly special about involving little ones in your big day. Sure, you've probably considered which little people you'd love to have as flower girls, bridesmaids, and page boys, but there are other roles they can take on, too. Having your son or your daughter as Best Man or Maid of Honour, respectively, is an incredibly lovely touch, that's bound to see your guests reaching for the tissues. Children who are of reading age can come into their own when given an element of responsibility on your wedding day. Whether they write their own speeches or are honoured with the opportunity to read to your guests during the ceremony, a child's involvement can create unforgettable moments of your Big Day. With that in mind, here are just ten of the best child-friendly wedding readings. They also work really well if you and your partner are big kids at heart, too. Just don't forget to add some Disney classics on strings to really set the charm alight. Beautiful arrangements such as Sleeping Beauty's Once Upon A Dream would also sound stunning on the harp. 1. Dr. Seuss  'We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.' 2. Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne  'If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you.' 3. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green 'I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labour has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.' 4. The Owl and The Pussycat by Edward Lear  The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea In a beautiful pea-green boat They took some honey, and plenty of money Wrapped up in a five–pound note The Owl looked up to the stars above And sang to a small guitar ‘O lovely pussy! O pussy, my love, What a beautiful pussy you are, You are You are! What a beautiful pussy you are!’ Pussy-Cat said to Owl ‘You elegant fowl!’ How charmingly sweet you sing! O let us be married! Too long we have tarried But what shall we do for a ring?” They sailed away, for a year and a day To the land where the Bong-Tree grows And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood With a ring at the end of his nose His nose His nose! With a ring at the end of his nose. ‘Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling Your ring?’ Said the Piggy, ‘I will.’ So they took it away and were married next day By the turkey who lives on the hill They dined on mince, and slices of quince Which they ate with a runcible spoon And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand They danced by the light of the moon The moon The moon! They danced by the light of the moon. 5. Your Personal Penguin by Sandra Boynton  I like you a lot. You're funny and kind. So let me explain What I have in mind. I want to be your personal penguin. I want to walk right by your side. I want to be your personal penguin. I want to travel with you far and wide. 6. The Love Monkey by Edward Monkton 'Then they looked into each other’s eyes and, feeling the joy of truth in their souls for the first time, they began to laugh. And often they sit together still, holding each other’s hearts in their warm hands, lifting them to the light and laughing. Always laughing.' 7. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery 'She is more important than all the hundreds of you other roses: because it is she that I have watered; because it is she that I have put under the glass globe; because it is she that I have sheltered behind the screen; because it is for her that I have killed the caterpillars; because it is she that I have listened to, when she grumbled, or boasted, or even sometimes when she said nothing. Because she is my rose.' 8. A word to husbands by Ogden Nash To keep your marriage brimming, With love in the loving cup, Whenever you’re wrong, admit it; Whenever you’re right, shut up. 9. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling 'Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears. “After all this time?” “Always,” said Snape' 10. A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice. Although it was cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage. Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur. The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur’s cage with kind words and loving thoughts. “I like this Dinosaur,” thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur. “Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny. He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now.” “I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur,” thought the Dinosaur. “She is beautiful and she is different and she smells so nice. She is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a dinosaur.” “But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times,” thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur. “He is also overly fond of things. Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?” “But her mind skips from here to there so quickly,” thought the Dinosaur. “She is also uncommonly keen on shopping. Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?” “I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things,” thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur, “for they are part of what makes him a richly charactered individual.” “I will forgive her skipping mind and her fondness for shopping,” thought the Dinosaur, “for she fills our life with beautiful thoughts and wonderful surprises. Besides, I am not unkeen on shopping either.” Now the Dinosaur and the Lovely Other Dinosaur are old. Look at them. Together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs. And that, my friends, is how it is with love. Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together. For the sun is warm. And the world is a beautiful place.

For many a bride and their grooms, wedding planning is an enormously exciting process. It is a time when you can come together to work on bringing the project of your dreams to life. Your creativity is on a high, you truly care about every little detail, right the way from your procession strings to the final hit the DJ blasts out. Oh, and let's not overlook all the wedding prep that goes on before you even head down the aisle. All that matters too. When you're planning such a special, significant event, it is true that it should be personal to you. If you love the look and feel of the trending barn wedding, then go for it. If you've always dreamt of hosting a classic affair in a country manor, then go for that. But for some brides and their grooms, traditional wedding themes don't quite hit the nail on the head. Now, more than ever, it has become socially acceptable to run wild with your wedding theme. Choose a theme that really means something to you and your husband-to-be. Be original. Create an event that oozes with your interests and character. You're gonna love it, and so will your guests. But, what's possible? The sky really is the limit. Here are just five quirky themes for your alternative wedding. Harry Potter Think owls, wands, 'always'. Think that unforgettable doe patronus, chocolate frog favours, and amorentia cocktails. Don't forget to have strings playing the stunning Hedwig's Theme for your bridal entrance. A formal dinner is absolutely a must; consider setting your venue as The Great Hall. Toasting with Felix Felicis (known as sparkling wine to muggles) will finish off the speeches perfectly.   Instagram image credit: @weddingseasonevents and @bridalmusings Star Wars If you're gonna do geek, then there's no better way to go than everyone's favourite sci-fi saga. Try Yoda seating plans (ie. 'Sit or sit not. There are no sides.' - cute right?), planet table names, and Jedi Mind Bender Groom's drinks at the bar. Don't forget that killer-of-a-line, 'I love you.' 'I know'. You'll sure be able to fit that into a wedding cake design.  Instagram image credit: @nickandlaurenphotos and @maddison.rocks.floral Steampunk Who says cutesy is a must? Park up the pastels and go for grunge instead. Nothing does alternative style quite like steampunk. Go full vintage punk with waistcoats, pocket watches, feather-adorned buttonholes, and top hats. Charcoal greys, burgundy and gold work really well together for your colour theme. Vintage, classic, goth. We love it. Instagram image credit: @mihaela.ruxanda and @cherrycakeco Game of Thrones Forget the recent royal nuptials, no wedding will be grander than a Game of Thrones inspired event. Take inspiration from your favourite house and theme your wedding to suit their values and standing. A Stark-centered ceremony is superb for winter occasions. Think fur, direwolves, snow, ice, greys, silvers, and white. Wherever your loyalties lie, no Game of Thrones wedding is complete without dragons. Instagram image credit: @mypaperheartevents and @berryandpeg Alice in Wonderland Where better place to hold your wedding than in Wonderland? The place where nothing is at it seems and everything is oh-so magical. Keep hold of those quaint pastels for your Wonderland wedding, but add some quirky details too. Ditch formal dining and instead choose to host a Mad Hatter's afternoon tea. Serve something sparkling in teacups. Flower girls will look stunning in little Alice dresses and Mary Jane pumps. The White Rabbit Russian just has to be the cocktail of the day.

Happy World Friendship Day! Yes, today's the day for celebrating your deep-rooted relationships with the important people in your life, beloved brides and grooms aside. Perhaps you've shared a thoughtful meme or two on social media? Or have a favourite dancefloor track in mind for when Friday strikes? But, right here on the Ntertain blog, we think today is the ideal opportunity to think through your bff's role in your wedding. Whether you have one dear maid of honour, or you have an army of a bridal squad, there are plenty of ways to celebrate this exciting time with your main ladies. I couldn't say 'I do' without you Instagram Image Credit: @wiz_khaleahhhh Asking your gals to be part of your bridal party should certainly be a special occasion. Rather than sending over a cheeky text, after you say 'yes', it's your turn to pop the proposal out of the bag. Bridesmaid proposals are so hot right now. And while they may well be all the rage on Instagram, that doesn't mean to say that you can't be truly original. Tailor your bridesmaid proposals to suit the character and interests of your best friends. Favourite scents, personalised gifts, perhaps a photo that brings back 'maid-worthy memories. After all, you only do this the once, right? Saying 'Yes' to the dress Are you dreading it? If you have more than the one bridesmaid, choosing a dress to suit the shape, size, and style of each lady is one almighty task. Instagram Image Credit: @weddingdayready and @justinesflowersfw Luckily, long gone are the days where it's absolutely necessary for your brides to be matchy-matchy, all coordinated. Dare to be bold and choose beautiful prints. Allow your bridesmaids to select their own style. Often necklines and sleeves make all the difference. Respect that not all girls feel great showing their skin, and some will want to flaunt a bit of flesh. Either is fine, they're your girls, right. Let them live! Take a look on Pinterest, and explore some wedding mags. You'll find plenty of inspiration on how to work mis-match bridesmaid gowns into coordinating ensembles. What's more, brave to step away from the norm and wow your guests. Whether you choose to invite your bridal party to your wedding dress appointments, always strive to involve them in their own dress decisions. One of the easiest ways to avoid unnecessary bad feeling, is to allow for individual style and body hang-ups. After all, we all have 'em. Here come the Hens! So, perhaps this is the time for you to take a step back from the planning and let your besties do the damage! If you're partial to a bit of pink, there shouldn't be too much to worry about. But, if you'd prefer a classy, themed, or alternative affair, perhaps drop the word in along the way. The likelihood is that your best friends will know you well enough to throw you the hen party of your dreams. Whether you jet off abroad for a shopping mini-break, go glamping for a weekend with make-do mud spas and paintballing, or you're a Potterhead dreaming of a Maurander's Map scavenger hunt, your hen should do you proud. Instagram Image Credit: @desi6003 Amidst all the wedding planning, kick back and relax on your hen weekend. Enjoy some time dedicated entirely to your girls and other close family and friends. You deserve it. And on that note, don't forget to schedule in plenty of coffee dates and cocktails before the big day. You'll need to shoot around ideas and, at times, let off steam. That's what friends are for. Instagram Image Credit: @mrsbweir On the Big Day itself On the morning of your wedding, you will be feeling a rush of mixed emotions. The excitement, the nerves, the adrenaline, will all be kicking in. Don't forget to take time to enjoy the preparations with your friends. Invest in some personalised goodies, breakfast mugs, champagne glasses, silky robes. You'll be sure to get some professional snaps that you and your girls will treasure forever. Instagram Image Credit: @naturallychicgifts and @thebelovedsparrows Speaking of snaps: make sure your photographer is in the know. Do you have some shots that you definitely want to see in your wedding album? Write down your ideas and give a request sheet to your photographer. They will be sure to plan these into proceedings. Instagram Image Credit: @whimsicalwonderlandweddings As nighttime falls, all your guests will be expecting the famous first dance. It is important to spend time with your groom, choosing a meaningful song to represent your relationship. Whether you opt for something slow, cute, cheeky, hardcore, it's up to you. But when the dance is done, why not boogie on down with your bridesmaids. Give the details to the DJ. Turn up the volume, and let Beyonce blare out. Who runs the world? That's right...

If this glorious sunshine is good for something, it certainly dries the lands out and puts us in the mood for a summer of festival fun! Brides and grooms who love to let loose, who are carefree at heart, and enjoy the vibe of the outdoor music scene, may just want to inject their big day with a WedFest feel. Just because you're tying the knot doesn't mean your nuptials need be 'the norm'. At Ntertain, we're massive fans of doing your day, your way, and if that means throwing the very best WedFest, then that's what we will help you achieve with our eclectic range of wedding entertainment. After all, what's a festival without some headline acts, right? 5. Let's take this outside Image Credit: Instagram @boho1 Perhaps, one of the first things couples do when planning their wedding is to nail down their venue. When searching for the ideal setting, think outside of the box a little. Get in touch with your local council. If there is woodland or open grassland in the area, it could be that these locations contain intimate venues, licensed for civil ceremonies. If this is the case, tie the knot and take things outdoors. Bring in the tipis! Really set that festival vibe alight. 4. Spray-painted cars and caravans and campervans, oh my! Image Credit: Instagram @thelitteredbusuk and @sunshinecoasthinterland Tradition would have you booking in a fancy vintage, classic car or even a horse-drawn carriage for your wedding transportation. But, when you're doing things a la WedFest, you can be a little more creative with your vehicle choices. Whether you opt for graffiti galore beetles, in awe of the 1970s, or you choose a cutesy VW camper, your wedding is going to scream feel-good, great fun, freedom! And it doesn't have to stop there. Why not speak to suppliers and book in some quirky caterers; caravan cafes, fish-and-chip vans, street food pop-ups... casual dining is so hot right now. 3. Go cray-cray for colour Image Credit: Instagram @darlingivy_paper and @rustic.rentals You're opting for a wedding full of festival goodness, which is the perfect opportunity to ditch the ditsy pastels and neutral hues and bring in the bolds. Yes, what better wedding theme for going colour crazy. Adding in splashings of bright pinks, blues, greens, yellows, oranges, a rainbow of shades, will really set your theme off. It's an easy way to instanteously lift the spirit of the day, too! With bright bolds all around, everyone knows they're in for a gooood time. Don't forget to incorporate your colours from the get-go, and choose personalised stationery that really gives off those WedFest feels. 2. A day that got your guests all 'Glasto-who?' Image Credit: Instagram @castadriftcouk and @coswoldweddings OK, so your venue, your colour scheme, your transport is sorted, but let's get one thing straight, a setting does not a festival make. Before you bring in the big guns and book your bands, it's time to think of the little bits that ooze festival fun. From lawn games and retro gaming units to petting zoos and face-painting tipis. Pull together a wad of activities that would blow the socks off Glasto. You've definitely got it in you. 1. Bring in the Bands! Chrome Party Band 2017 from Ntertain Events Ltd on Vimeo. Just what is a festival without some seriously hawt headliners? At Ntertain, whatever sounds are your style, we have the perfect band for your big day. From smooth jazz to 90s dance and retro 80s hits to sensational swingers. Talk to us before you book your bands. Let us in on your vision, your creative genius, and we can help you source the sounds that will bring your WedFest to life. It's all part of the bespoke Ntertain service.

Thursday 21 June marked 2018's summer solstice, the first day of our warmest season. And, let's be honest, for the first time in forever, the Great British Weather has actually turned up for the event. The skies have been glorious, definitely perfecto wedding weather. Just imagine the sun beaming with the sweet sound of ceremony strings playing, as you make your bridal entrance. Beautiful. With flowers blooming, barbeques burning, not to mention the prosecco and gin that's a-flowing, everyone is well and truly lapping up those authentic, feel-good summer-time vibes. That in mind, perhaps it's time to take a look at some of the most instagrammable summer-themed wedding goodness, which you'll certainly want to steal for your own nuptials. 8. Festival Flowers Photo Credit: Instagram @designmydayevents and @carolineandrsn Rather than opting for perfectly posed bouquets, choose to carry naturally flowing and fabulous wildflowers. Effortlessly, such arrangements ooze chilled feels, connoting lazy summer afternoons meandering through meadows and such summer lark. Alternatively, go full festival and wear your flower crown loud and proud. 7. Summer Brights Colour Scheme Photo Credit: Instagram @suffolkweddingshed and @featherandrockevents Don't be afraid to step away from the shades of grey, ivories, and neutrals that adorn the Pinterest wedding world. Let your wedding colour scheme reflect the season, and encapsulate your excitement for entering into married life together. Be bold, choose oranges, purples, golds, reds. Go for colour-rich romance. 6. Alfresco Strings Is there anything as stunning as a string quartet softly playing in the open air? We think not. Ideal for outdoor ceremonies or lawn drinks receptions, string duos, trios and quartets add a chic, tranquil ambience, creating a dreamy day. 5. Picnic Receptions Photo Credit: Instagram @amberveatchdesigns and shindig031 Who says that wedding receptions must be a three-course sit-down meal, comprising of chicken, veg, and chocolate cake? If you're tying the knot at the height of the sunny season, the world really is your oyster when it comes being creative with culinary options. Think fish and chip vans, street food, barbeques, maybe even take inspiration from these incredible outdoor picnic receptions. Do the grub you love. 4. Lawn Games and Chic Inflatables Photo Credit: Instagram @quantocklakesuk From giant Jenga to colossal Connect4, all  manner of party games can be bought big these days, and they make for excellent summer wedding entertainment. It may be that your venue will allow sprayed lawn Twister, or you may think space-hopper races would be a real hoot. Another popular craze right now is chic wedding inflatables, ivory flower-adorned bouncy castles are available to hire across the UK. Amaze. You've certainly got the weather for it. 3. Farmyard Friends Photo Credit: Instagram @alpacasofinstagram and @tonyduque OK, so with the rise of the rustic wedding trend, comes a fabulous spring-summer wedding detail: farmyard animals. It's so good, we're not even sorry. Book in your Alpaca of Honour, have a faithful donkey as a Groomsman, and let those hens run wild. It's what they do best (hen reference sort of intended). How cute, really. And, awesome for couples with kids on their guest list.  2. Low Key Acoustic Artists You've said your 'I-dos', confetti fills the air with a rainbow of soft shades, and guests are sipping Pimms on the terrace. Perfect. What could really add to that vibe? Let's try an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist.  Combining harmonic, melodic and percussive techniques Ntertain's Fingerstyle Guitarist, Francis, transforms classic hits into rich and textured instrumental arrangements. It's absolutely ideal for setting off a summer afternoon in the sunshine, as you stand and socialise, with flutes of something fancy in hand. Check him out. 1. Homemade Lemonade and Pimped Drinks Photo Credit: Instagram @primroseweddingplanner and kayleymayy So Pimp Your Prosecco has been doing the rounds for a few seasons now, but that doesn't mean you can't take the idea and let your creative juices flow. Gin is where it's at for this summer, most certainly, so switch it up and Pimp Your Gin. Offer various tonics and botanical garnishes, from grapefruit and pomegranate to mint leaves and rosemary. Defo a favourite with the bridesmaids. Don't foget to add something non-alcoholic but equally spectacular, too! Homemade lemonade in traditional dispensers tick all the right boxes. While we might not do gin, we have your summer sounds covered. Book strings and acoustic guitarists for your summer wedding with Ntertain.
