Wedding & Event Trends – If you’re planning a 2024 or 2025 wedding, quinceanera, sweet 16, holiday party, or any event, in the Austin/Central Texas area, actually anywhere in the world, then you are definitely interested in the latest wedding & event trends! We know this because you would not be reading this right now if you weren’t! 🙂

Booking great entertainment should definitely always be a priority! Booking a great band, DJ, or live entertainment is always a must. However, it’s always a great idea to consider booking other entertainment options, too. Not everyone dances, or is able to dance, so it’s a good idea to consider other options. Here are a few entertainment options you can consider.

Renting a photo booth for your wedding or event is a great way to add more entertainment! Additionally, your guests get a picture to take home with them, which can also serve as your favor! 

Our wedding & event photo booth package comes with unlimited photo sessions, so your guests can take all the pictures they want and take home several pictures to remember your fun celebration! We can also add your logo or text, such as “John & Jane’s Wedding 5/1/2024.” 

4. Dancing on the Clouds

The dancing on a cloud machine is still a great trend that we’re seeing more and more people want. The cloud machine isn’t just for weddings or quinces, though. We’re seeing more corporate event clients book it for fun entrances and activities! 

5. Shimmer Walls, Flower Walls

Another great option to consider is lawn and giant game rentals. You can rent cornhole, washers, horseshoes, ladder golf, giant Jenga, giant Connect 4, giant checkers, etc. We can set these up inside or outside, and your guests will have a blast playing their favorite games while enjoying a beer or refreshing cocktail!

7. Audio Guest Books

Audio guest books are a great concept. You’ll have a vintage phone and your guest can leave voice mails on the phone for you. We’ve rented these for weddings, birthdays, and even retirement parties! 

8. Mariachis, Live Bands & Other Live Entertainment

Though Mariachis may be associated with Latin culture, we’ve seen them at non-Latin weddings and events! A great Mariachi band is always an awesome entertainment option. They can perform traditional Mariachi songs, but can also perform many of your favorite current or Pop hits, in English, too! 

You can also hire a band to play during cocktail hour, dinner, or even during some of the dance portion of the night! You’ll have the best of both worlds with a DJ and band.

In addition to all of the above, today’s couples are also opting for other live entertainment options. We’ve seen magicians, live painters, singing quartets, and even animals such as “beer burros.” 

Be sure to read our article about hiring a band or DJ for your wedding, to learn more about the pros & cons of both.
