Wedding season is here and it’s all about the vintage… entertainment!

Bombshell Belles Vintage Wedding
Summer is such a wonderful time of year as love is in the air, wedding bells are chiming and our vintage acts are busy travelling to entertain newlyweds across the UK. Over the past few weeks, our Vintage Vocal and Piano and Bombshell Belles have performed at some truly stunning wedding venues, including Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel, Pendrell Hall, Aspire Leeds and the fabulous Coombe Abbey.

We’re fully stocked up on confetti as there are many more special occasions yet to come, with more performances planned for our blushing Belles and VVP, as well as our Vintage Sax, Vintage Vocalists and The Hollywood Starlets.

Planning your big day and thinking of a theme or something different? Take a look at our top tips for what to consider when booking vintage entertainment for your wedding…

Something Old…

Incorporating music from yesteryear into your special day can help shape a theme or sentiment you’d like to convey. Whilst looking ahead to the future, weddings are also a time for reflection and listening to meaningful songs is the best way to spark fond memories between you or your guests.

Something New…

Weddings offer brides and grooms the opportunity to demonstrate their personality and style, and over recent years going vintage has become a popular trend. Though many may find nostalgic music appealing, offering a selection of modern songs also will ensure all guests are entertained.

Something Borrowed…

Walk up the aisle to piano melodies, greet guests to the wedding breakfast with saxophone sounds or get people on the dancefloor with a full live band; music can form part or all of the occasion. While the entertainers will leave at the end of the day, the memories you can keep for a lifetime.

…Something Blue?

A day of romance and heartfelt declarations, no wedding would be complete without a tender ballad that captures the feelings you have for your loved one. Old or new, there is a song that will hold special meaning to any couple as they take their first dance as man and wife.

No need for the silver sixpence in her shoe, but…

  • Decide on your theme – choosing a theme early will make it easier to plan out the day. If you’re unsure, experienced entertainment specialists can provide suggestions.
  • Book an accommodating venue – if you are certain about wanting entertainment, make sure your wedding venue allows space for the performers and their equipment.
  • Get your timings right – once you know the times of the ceremony and afternoon breakfast you can get a clearer idea of when you’d like music to be played.
  • Choose professional artistes – self-contained performers will provide their own PA, microphones and speakers which should all be included within the quote you are given.
  • Any requests? Ask the artistes for a set list in advance to ensure you’re happy with the music choices and get your requests in early if you have a special song or two you’d like to hear.

    It’s true: wedding season is upon us. I have so many friends who are going to be getting married soon, and I’ve been trying to help a few of them choose the right music for their receptions. I LOVE the idea of greeting guests with gentle, dreamy piano music. I feel like there’s nothing classier than a piano at a wedding. Thanks for all the ideas!

    I’m helping my cousin plan her wedding and we are trying to decide on entertainment. I love the idea of having vintage vocal and piano music to set the mood. I really like your tip to ask for hte set list before the event so we can make sure we like the music choice. Are most performers willing to take requests as long as you let them know in advance?

      Thank you for your message. Yes – most professional performers are usually happy to learn and perform any requests outside their repertoire if given plenty notice in advance, though realistically only 1-3 new songs. Hope that helps!
