Q. Can you give us some entertainment ideas for our micro wedding this spring?

A. Norma Mills says: Norma says: Why not consider a barn dance band? Our line up is an accordion player (myself), a guitarist, a concertina and a caller to lead guests through the dances. This type of wedding entertainment can be enjoyed by all ages making your celebrations a truly memorable experience. I can also provide solo background music on the accordion at an appropriate moment during the event. For small gatherings, we can perform with just two (married) people playing the accordion and guitar, with one providing directions for a small number of couples or individuals to dance according to the social distancing regulations. In between dances, or if dancing is not allowed and for people who prefer to listen, we play a selection of traditional and well-known tunes. The music is not too loud to prevent normal conversation. We can also cater for larger occasions when restrictions lift either acoustically or with our amplification

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.
