Good food is generally achieved by hiring a caterer. Good entertainment brings with it a number of options. One entertainment option for a wedding reception is a wedding singer. For far less than you would pay a band and a little more than you can expect to pay a DJ, you can have an entertainer that is a master of ceremonies, singer, and comedian all rolled into one.

Popularised by Adam Sandler's 1998 film The Wedding Singer, the individual doing this role at your reception will entertain you and your guests from start to finish. The wedding singer keeps the "show" aspect of the reception rolling along smoothly by providing music for dancing, and introducing numerous aspects of the reception such as the throwing of the bouquet/garter, and the unwrapping of wedding presents.

A good wedding singer will be the life of the party, keeping everybody in a good mood and having a good time by singing their heart out. Some wedding singers will also have the guests sing, making parts of the reception a kind of karaoke party. Everybody loves karaoke.

You'll find that there are all sorts of wedding singers available to perform at your reception. Wedding singers will usually have a variety of musical styles to offer in their repertoire. Some offer general services which consist of numerous popular songs that they can singer at your wedding. Others are more specialised and offer "tribute" performances to famous singers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett or even the likes of Barry Manilow or Burt Bacarach. Most will be more than happy to discuss your musical tastes. Whatever musical style suits your particular preferences, you are certain to be able to locate a wedding singer willing to perform it for you.

Wedding singers can do it all for you and the good ones could make for a truly entertaining experience. When you're organising the entertainment for your wedding reception, consider getting a wedding singer to help make sure your event fulfils the requirement of the three "G's" and is an unforgettable occasion for you and your guests.
