Awesome Wedding Breakfast Music and Entertainment Ideas

Last Updated: 21st May 2024

Live entertainment helps to create lasting memories and gives an exclusive feel to your wedding day. If you’d like to hire a musician or entertainer for your wedding breakfast, you’re spoilt for choice with the huge array of talented musicians and incredible acts available to keep spirits high while everyone is eating.

Wedding Breakfast Music Ideas

By the time it gets to your wedding breakfast, people are likely to be hungry, not only for food but for a good natter with the people they’re sat with. For this reason, while the food is being served, it’s a great idea to hire musicians who’ll play background music to match the vibe you want to create. Whether you’re looking for some ambient and relaxing music or some upbeat vibes to get people in the mood to party, we’ve got some fabulous musical act ideas for you (as well as some non-musical ones a bit further on in the blog!)

An Acoustic Soloist or Duo

Bellerose Duo

A small acoustic act will effortlessly create a relaxing atmosphere or can play upbeat numbers to get toes tapping in advance of all the dancing to come. The choice is yours! Not too loud and not too quiet, your guests will be able to have a good chat without having to shout over the music but they can still have a good singalong if they want to.

A Jazz Act

Night and Day

Jazz ensembles come in all shapes and sizes. For your wedding breakfast entertainment, we’d recommend booking a jazz duo or trio, who’ll inject a classy and upbeat vibe into your celebrations. It’ll be like having your very own jazz club at your wedding!

A Pianist

Michael Mezzo

It’s easy to create a swanky piano lounge vibe during your wedding breakfast when you book a pianist. These versatile musicians are able to play anything from jazz standards to classical music and modern chart hits to rock classics – all at the perfect volume to blend seamlessly into the background!

A Saxophonist

Sax With AJ

For a laid-back Ibiza chill vibe you need one of our amazing saxophonists! Alternatively, these talented musicians can turn their hand to pretty much any genre of music. Most will play with high-quality backing tracks and some even come with their own DJ!

A Roaming Band

Shelby Street

A roaming band is a group of musicians who play acoustically and therefore don’t need any amplification so they aren’t too loud, making them the perfect wedding breakfast musical entertainment! They are able to move around the room, so they can provide each of your tables with their own private concert. They’re an extremely popular choice for obvious reasons and will provide your guests with unforgettable memories!

A Rat Pack Singer

Quintessentially Sinatra

If you’d love a silky-smooth singer to serenade your guests while they enjoy their meal, then a Rat Pack or swing singer is a fantastic choice of entertainment for your wedding breakfast. With everything from crooners like Frank Sinatra and Michael Bublé in their repertoire, as well as swing and jazz classics and creative takes on modern pop songs, they’ll help to create a classy ambience without overpowering your guests’ conversations.

A Mariachi Band

Pacho Nacho

As wedding breakfast entertainment goes, you don’t get much more fun and uplifting than your very own mariachi band! Get your guests ready to fiesta when these vibrant bands start to play in their vibrant traditional outfits and sombreros! Tequila shots are optional…

Singing Waiters

Secret Singers

Take your guests by surprise when your waiters suddenly break into song! No-one will suspect that the lovely servers who have been handing out food are actually the entertainment until the penny drops and everyone is singing along with them. Singing waiters are a great way to make your wedding breakfast one of the most memorable parts of your day.

Non-Musical Wedding Breakfast Entertainment

Perhaps you’ve already sorted the music for your wedding breakfast but would like your guests to be entertained nonetheless! The following acts are fantastic ice-breakers so are a brilliant way of getting your guests talking, even if they don’t know each other.

A Magician

Mystery Artist

A magician will astound and amaze your guests with their incredible illusions, sleight of hand and mesmerising mind tricks. Each and every guest can view a close-up, unforgettable experience at your wedding breakfast, as the table set-up lends itself perfectly to this type of spellbinding act. Booking a magician is a sure-fire way to get your guests talking about what they’ve witnessed!

A Caricaturist

Marcus Caricatures

People love a good giggle and a caricaturist can certainly provide them with something to laugh about! These talented artists can capture your guests’ features with just a few quick strokes of a pen, resulting in a hilarious memento for them to take home and treasure forever – but not without talking about how good/funny/uncanny the likeness is first!
