Ask many couples and they’ll tell you, they spent a huge chunk of their wedding budget on wedding entertainment with absolutely no regrets. The reception is by far the most awaited part of the ceremony. You want to be sure your distant relatives and long lost friends enjoy every part of it. Like choosing any other wedding service, you’ll have to conduct a series of interviews, ask for references and save the date early enough lest you miss watching your favorite wedding band or choir perform.
Before you even start looking for Kenyan wedding entertainers, understand what suits your personal taste, budget and space available at the reception. Here are a couple of entertainment options you may want to consider.

A good wedding MC must ensure everyone is having a great time. Don’t just hire someone who is good at public speaking. If possible, attend one of the events hosted by the MC to judge their style of entertaining. The best MCs will make sure the ceremony concentrates on the bride and groom.
Wedding bands and choirs
Good thing about bands and choirs is that they can play any kind of music you want from lingala to rumba, hiphop, RnB and gospel. If your venue is small, hiring a band with many members may be a challenge due to space constraints. The other challenge is that most bands and choirs will include the cost of transportation and accommodation, which can eat into your budget especially if your wedding destination is far.
A skilled wedding DJ can get everyone on the dance floor and encourage people to interact with each other. Just make sure you sit with the DJ and discuss about the playlist you’d love for your wedding. Discuss other issues like the level of professionalism they must maintain while at your occasion.
Other than great music, your wedding guests can also enjoy some interesting jokes. A good comedian who will encourage the audience to interact, feel at ease and enjoy your big day.
