Why Opt for Unique Wedding Entertainment?

digital-fire_audionetworks_booking_agency_irelandThe conventional is not for everybody.

Some people want to live, dress, and enjoy themselves in different ways than the average Joe. And when it comes to your wedding, we are here to help.

Our top-tier performers – ten of them listed above, and an extra 5 listed below – are always ready to deliver a crazy good experience to your attendees, guaranteeing the memorability of your wedding for more than just your close relatives.

Let’s take the Silent Headphone Disco idea for example. 99% of your guests have certainly never been in one, and giving them the chance to experience this unique type of entertainment will ensure their happiness throughout the night. It can take place anywhere as long as there is enough room for your guests to dance, and you don’t have to be concerned about the two major deal-breakers when it comes to wedding music: the noise level in the neighborhood and the fact that not everybody enjoys the same genres of music.

The headphones are snug and comfortable for both the kids and the adults, and the DJ can run multiple channels of music. It’s impossible for someone to not find one to their liking!

Even if you want to go for a live band such as The Firm or The Funky Buskers, you can still hire the Silent Disco gear for the little ones – they can listen to their favorite young artists while the rest of the party enjoys some refined notes from the performers.

Traditional Irish Wedding Entertainment – Another Excellent Choice

From Irish bands to Irish dance shows and comedy acts with an Irish theme, you can book anything through us. How many times have you been to weddings that you did not actually enjoy as much due to the repetitive cycle of drinking, dancing a bit, and chatting with your bored tablemates? It happens.

But it won’t happen if, in the middle of the party, a comedian like our very own Dave Young steps on the stage and starts an original routine? Maybe one on marriage or on “life with kids”. Maybe sharing some humorous stories of their own past love life or dates that failed in a comical manner. Who knows? It will be a surprise for all.

Don’t forget about dance shows! After 2 hours of dancing and 6 of heavy drinking, your guests might be reluctant to hit the dance floor again – but our Irish dancers can hop right on it and bring a dash of tradition and Irish beauty to your lovely wedding night!

A Favorite Unique Wedding Idea: Robot Hosts!

Robot_Networks_Bumble-bee_Robot_Weddings_Audionetworks_agency_dublinNobody actually wants to be the host at a wedding – not wholeheartedly anyway! It can be boring, it can get old quickly after welcoming the fourth set of distant cousins and aunts from abroad that nobody ever knew existed.

Sit back and relax. We have trained robots to do this for you.

Well, not quite. They are not actual robots, they are humans who can fake it really well. Our Star Troopers, for example, are guaranteed to take your wedding by storm! The kids will hang out with them and take selfies or play on Robot-TED’s integrated iPad, instead of running around the tables and knocking glasses down. Less spilled drinks, less stained dresses, and pants – more happiness for everyone!

Is Unique Wedding Entertainment Expensive?

The short answer is no, it doesn’t have to be.

It depends on your act, party size, and special requests, but unique wedding entertainment can be as affordable as conventional entertainment types. We do everything we can to satisfy every single need of yours, and we know that the budget is a major one for most young lovers looking to get married.

Do not worry about the costs, and just contact us by phone or using the contact form to the right of the site. Our entertainment specialists,  always on call and always very happy to give you advice and more budget-oriented suggestions if that’s what you’re looking for.

If all goes well – and our team here at AudioNetworks hopes it will be so! – you will only get married once. So you should make sure your wedding is exactly how you dreamt it. Exactly how you and your partner always wished it to be. It will be memorable for you regardless – but we can help you make it memorable for everybody else that is involved.
