Eight Unexpectedly Awesome Performers for Your Wedding

The setting, the flowers, the food, the guest list: all serious business. But isn’t your big day also about having fun, making memories that you and yours will remember for years to come? Hiring the right live performer can make all the difference in atmosphere.

But you can go far beyond the usual tinkling ivories or blaring DJs. Consider inviting someone who will add just the right dose of humor and personality, who may have the perfect way to create an unforgettable day.

You can find performers--from musically stunning artists playing underappreciated instruments to wildly romantic flights of fancy--to reflect every mood and taste, and at a wide range of price points. Here are some cool suggestions from around the country to spark your imagination and get you started.

Pan in Harmony (Myrtle Beach, SC): The sound of steel drums in masterful hands sparkle and soothe, whether dancing through pop favorites or calypso gems.

Sean SINATRA Reilly (Wilmington, DE): Old Blue Eyes lives on, as does his cheeky yet gracious manner for interpreting classic love songs.

The Boobe Sisters (Los Angeles, CA): Tight three-part harmony and vintage sass combine in a custom-made, comedy-filled show that puts a doo-wop spin on the hits.

Caricatures2go (Woodstock, GA): An expert cartoonist can capture up to 15 of your guests an hour--all on custom paper to commemorate the big day.

Ryan & Liz Dueling Pianos (Los Angeles, CA): Two pianos are way more fun, especially when seasoned and spirited musicians are at the keys, taking requests and tickling funny bones.

Newport Coast White Dove Release (Los Angeles, CA): Let spirits soar as these peace-loving birds take flight, and while the birds’ humane handlers record the moment to video.

Daniela Viotti (Miami, FL): Glamorous and quirky, this living statue performer strikes an unexpected pose in lavish costumes that will amaze--and give guests a fun selfie op.

Elvis Tribute Artist Michael McMullen (San Antonio, TX): From velvet voice to sequined jumpsuits, this performer has Elvis down, and he’ll even officiate the ceremony, for those who truly love the King.
