Wedding Entertainment Ideas Northern Ireland

So you have said “YES!” and have set a date for your wedding! You are probably too excited to focus on what to plan first! Aside from the obvious first step in good wedding planning; booking your dream wedding venue as soon as possible to secure your chosen date, we suggest you book your entertainment next!

But, what do I want. A Wedding DJ, a live wedding band? … What kind of band should I have for my wedding?… how do I book a band? Your head is bursting with unanswered questions so let me through my entertainment agency Musicon Entertainment help you along with some great wedding tips on deciding how to theme up your wedding day.

Vintage Themed weddings

Why should I theme my wedding?

Choosing a theme for your wedding will help you simplify your ideas. Once deciding on a theme to style your wedding, almost everything else should fall more easily into place. What is important though, is to be mindful when booking your wedding suppliers in Northern Ireland. Knowledge is power, knowledge and experience is even better so make sure whom ever your book to supply your wedding singers, music, wedding entertainment décor, accessories, cakes and cars for your wedding that they are experienced professionals in their field of expertise. Many Brides feel overwhelmed and worry about how their guests will enjoy themselves but remember first and foremost this is your big day.

In the many years that I have been providing entertainment for Brides & Grooms across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland; I have found that the happiest couples are the one that makes decisions based on their own personality and tastes. Once your guests see that you are enjoying your special day they will be there with you 100% of the way, even if you have chosen a rock band as entertainment and they love country music.

It is important is that you spend your hard earned wedding budget on your favourite things. Through my entertainment agency Musicon Entertainment based in Belfast; I specialise in themed music for weddings and events. Today I would like to recommend the ever popular vintage wedding theme.

To follow is just one of a selection of themed wedding entertainment acts I can supply and recommend to perform at your evening reception in Ireland.

1940’s Vintage theme weddings

Vintage, Art Deco and Gastby style weddings are one of the most popular and decadent themes around but what exactly is Vintage? Well, it can actually really mean, anything old style or retro from 1920’s Gatsby style to 1950’s Rockabilly through to 1960’s Motown. So don’t feel you have to stick to a 1940’s Swing theme but it is the mother era of some of the best Jazz n Swing music ever written & performed.

Wedding Singers & Cabaret Acts Northern Ireland

Karen Rush wedding singer Northern Ireland has an alter ego in Miss Rita Von Chic. A twist on the standard 40’s & 50’s Vintage Jazz and swing style singer Karen as Rita not only will surprise and entertain your guests with her vintage vocal stylings of Ella Fitzerald, Shirley Bassey and Judy Garland but is a self contained act reflecting the performance style of Cabaret and Burlesque akin to the fun yet glamorous Bette Midler shows in Las Vegas.

Karen is the perfect choice in themed wedding entertainment singers for pre-dinner drinks receptions and corporate events, after dinner entertainment to help keep your guests entertained and she confidently sweeps through the tables encouraging them to all to join in and sing along.


Through Musicon Entertainment Karen has just launched her new vintage themed wedding band with a modern twist based in Northern Ireland.

A great combination of modern songs and swing band that everyone loves so much. Your guests will know all these songs and will surprise you with their twist and groove on the dance-floor.
