Q. We are inviting all age groups to our wedding and want some entertainment to suit everyone so what do you suggest?

A. Book A Party DJ says: Meet the expert: Mark Louisy is a professional experienced club and festival DJ with experience in playing most music genres including pop, the top 40 chart tracks, house music, garage, reggae, hip-hop, funk, soul, indie, and Motown, as well as popular tracks from the 1960s through to the 1990s. He is one of the team of reliable, leading DJs and presenters available for hire, along with sound and lighting equipment, through entertainment specialists Book A Party DJ, Sound and Lighting.

Mark says: It can be very difficult for couples to organise wedding entertainment suitable for all guests and finding interactive entertainment for mixed age groups can be even more challenging, particularly when trying to manage a budget at the same time. We highly recommend considering Disco Karaoke. It's a combination of disco and karaoke rolled into one enabling guests to get involved as well as dance the night away. We have found this to be really inclusive and extremely memorable for everyone.

Music plays such a huge part in making the day a success so we highly recommend spending time carefully selecting the DJ, band or company providing your musical entertainment. Here are some things to consider:

·Read their reviews
·Listen to their previous performances
·Review photos and videos of previous performances
·Speak to them to ensure that they are able to deliver the type of performance you want for your wedding.

Q. We are planning a marquee wedding later this summer and would love to treat our guests to some surprise entertainment during the sit-down wedding breakfast. What do you suggest?

A. Colin Dymond says: Entertaining your guests during the wedding breakfast is a good idea because, often, a sit-down dinner can take up quite a bit of time. Table Magic is a fantastic way of bringing together loved ones who might not already know each other. I like to think of each table as a small party, and I entertain the whole group by getting them all involved with the tricks and fun. I use lots of different props, not just relying on card tricks. As the cheers and laughter spread from table to table, it becomes infectious, usually culminating in a huge round of applause for the finale performed at the top table.

Another idea is to have the magic during the pre-dinner drinks. This is usually the time when the photographer has taken the couple and their bridal party away for group photographs, and it can be a bit of a waiting game for the remainder of the guests. Having a magician perform at this time brings people together and keeps everyone in the party spirit.
