Hey there ladies. I am thinking of hiring a Aerialist as a wedding entertainment, but I cant figure out when I would have her perform. So I guess my question to you guys is, when are you most likely to get bored during a wedding? Should I have her perform during dinner? cocktail hour? Have you guys ever been to a wedding where they had an Aerialist? Please share your opinion with me.
This is an Aerialist just in case anyone was wondering 🙂

My friend does that as a professional!
I have never been to a wedding that had formal entertainment, other than a DJ for dancing. Is your heart set it on? I don’t think it’s necessary.

Unless you have your heart set on this idea, I honestly feel like it would be too much. I’ve never been bored at a wedding…with food, dancing, speeches, cake cutting etc, it’s honestly nice to have a few moments to chat with my tablemates. Just my opinion 🙂

If I have people to chat with, I don’t really get bored at weddings. That would be cool and everything, but I’m guessing you’d need a lot of space and safety considerations beforehand?

Honestly, I’ve never been bored at a wedding (except for when I went solo and was stuck at a table with all married couples who didn’t talk to me.) Unless you have a carnival type thing, I think you can pass on this.

Thank you ladies. I was afraid that a Dj would not be enough, but Im glad to hear that it would not be the case.

I’ve only been to a handful of weddings with outside entertainment along this vein. Honestly, I’ve never enjoyed it. I always took that opportunity to go to the bathroom or step outside and just wait for it to be over so we could get back to dancing and socializing.
Unless you’re not having any sort of dancing, i don’t think this is necessary.

David Tutera is always adding this type of entertainment (or something similar) to the weddings on “My Fair Wedding” and to be honest I always think it is pretty ridiculous, regardless of how well it works with the theme. IMHO it somewhat cheapens the weddings overall and makes them more of a theatric performance rather than a celebration of marriage.
Just my honest opinion.

I’ll be the odd one out on this because my first reaction was “OMG that would be so cool!” Mr. Lk doesn’t dance, and since I am there with him, that means I don’t dance either. So I would love to have some other form of entertainment besides a DJ.

@Treejewel19: I completely agree.

@abdnguess: I think this would be amazing to have at a wedding! We’re just beginning a 2 year engagement, so I don’t know too much about the time line, but I can say I’d love to go to a wedding with additional entertainment besides a DJ. We’re thinking of having fire works at the end of the night 🙂
And as a few other PPs said, its not “necessary” but are a majority of things at a wedding? Don’t let that change your mind if you want one 🙂 This would make your wedding so unique, so sorry I can’t help to say when it should be, timeline wise, but I love the idea!

Personally, I think it sounds pretty cool! Especially if you have like a vintage circus theme or something like that. It would definitely be a wedding people would be talking about for months and years afterwards!

I think as long as you have a good DJ, your guests will be plenty entertained!

I agree with this. I do think fireworks are particularly impressive and awesome at weddings, but this sort of entertainment falls in line with bellydancers or something? I’m just not really a fan.

I actually think this would be cool during the cocktail hour. During dinner there might be toasts, or the dacing will have started, and definitely after dinner people will be dancing, but it would provide a great conversation piece during cocktail hour. TOTALLY not necessary, though…only if it’s something you want to do. Like the others, I don’t think I’ve ever been bored at a wedding. 🙂
