Everyone has been to weddings that feel the same—The same ceremony, cocktail hour, toasts, and traditional music. Want something different? There are so many unique options for Chicago wedding entertainment. Let’s talk about a few of our favorites!
Hype Your Reception Entrance with Cold Sparklers
Enter your wedding reception to more than just music playing! Imagine you are announced, walk in to applause, and as soon as you hit the dance floor, firework-like sparklers erupt around you. Talk about a grand entrance!
Cold sparklers are a fun and unexpected addition to start the fun of a reception, and they are a perfect wedding entertainment option for a Wow factor (don’t worry, our cold sparklers won’t set off fire alarms!).
Make Your First Dance Magical with Cloud Effects
Watching a first dance isn’t always the most entertaining part of a wedding for guests. So how about you make it a dreamy surprise?
With the Dancing on the Clouds effect, the dance floor is filled with a cloud of dry ice that is 6 inches high. It will be like you are dancing on clouds. It’s a fun, unexpected experience for everyone in the room.
As a bonus, photographers love this effect, as it creates a picture perfect moment for your first dance photos.
Entertain Your Guests with a Unique Photo Booth
Photo booths are one of the best ways to entertain your guests during cocktail hour and to entertain those guests who aren’t dancers but still want to engage with other guests and have fun.
There are so many unique options for photo booth rentals in Chicago. One of our new favorites is the 360 Photo Booth.
The 360 Photo Booth is a booth that can record a video by spinning 360 degrees around.
It captures 360 views, boomerangs, GIFs, and slow motion video (perfect for a money gun or confetti). These are the kinds of memorable videos that everyone will have to post about online and love looking back on months later.
DJ Persist also offers a roaming photo booth (that comes to your guests), a social station, and a classic photo booth with props and printed photo strips (the perfect party favor!).
Choose a DJ with Club Experience
When you choose the right wedding DJ for your wedding reception entertainment, you’ll take your party to the next level.
Consider hiring an experienced club DJ like Chicago’s DJ Persist. DJ Persist blends together all of your favorite songs from various genres with seamless transitions, packing your dance floor and providing an unforgettable night.
Thanks to his club experience, DJ Persist knows how to read the crowd and work hard to ensure all your “Must Plays” make it to the playlist while keeping your guests in on the action.
DJ Persist will even play the music videos of the songs to bring more fun to the dance party.
LED Party Robots and CO2 Cannons
Want to really energize your party? When your wedding reception goes into late night, bring in an LED robot dancer and a CO2 cannon.
These bright, explosive additions will make your wedding reception feel like an EDM fest. No one will want to leave!
La Hora Loca
Embrace the Latin tradition of La Hora Loca (“the crazy hour”) at your wedding!
La Hora Loca is meant to reignite a party through lights, bright colors, props, sirens, and incredible music.
DJ Persist offers a La Hora Loca package that includes lots of fun and eye-catching props, such as LED glow batons, glow necklaces, glow bracelets, long balloons, plastic hats, and glasses, plus our CO2 gun!
