Wedding Entertainment

Your wedding is one of the most important days in your entire life. You don’t need us to tell you that. But if you want to plan a day that really stands out as special for you, your spouse, your family, and your guests, you need to start thinking outside the box of traditional, run-of-the-mill wedding entertainment.

Wedding celebrations dot the social calendars of everyone you know, year after year. They’re so plentiful they can get predictable, even dull. But you can still plan a wedding that’s truly unique.

Characters for Hire ℠ has the wedding entertainment services to help make that happen.

What We Offer

Characters for Hire ℠ can provide anything and everything you need to entertain – maybe even surprise – the guests at your wedding or wedding-related event. Need ideas for unique wedding entertainment? Look no further.


Have a particular theme in mind for your wedding? Go big or go home! Our costumed characters are the perfect addition to your wedding entertainment blueprint, for the reception, engagement party, bachelor or bachelorette party.

Our performers will make sure you and your guests leave with lasting memories of a celebration like no other.

Here are just some of the options we offer at Characters for Hire ℠:

  • Decade-themed characters (a 1920s flapper, for example)
  • Elvis impersonators
  • Knights in armor or other medieval characters
  • Literary characters
  • Fairytale characters
  • Historical characters
  • Sports personalities
  • Hero characters
  • Celebrity impersonators and lookalikes

If a costumed character isn’t up your alley, how about acrobats, break dancers, jugglers, or circus acts? Yes, we even have fire eaters for hire!

Or, for offbeat bachelor or bachelorette party entertainment ideas, check out our midget entertainment options.

Musical Acts

The music you play at your wedding ceremony and/or reception can truly make or break the entire event. Although the wedding is technically all about how happy you and your spouse are together, it still won’t be considered a success if your guests don’t have a great time.

There’s nothing quite like a great live music act to draw people away from their tables and get them up and dancing the night away. The right music makes a wedding a memorable social occasion.

The Characters for Hire ℠ team includes a wide variety of talented musicians specializing in any music genre or ethnic culture imaginable.

A few examples of our musical wedding entertainment acts for hire:

  • Barbershop Quartets
  • Bagpipers
  • Cool Jazz artists
  • Folk Guitarists
  • Gospel Singers
  • Classical Orchestras
  • String and Bass Quartets
  • Flamenco Guitarists
  • Soloists
  • Hot Salsa Bands
  • Irish Pub Bands
  • Original Rock Bands

You can also hire one of our awesome tribute bands, including but not limited to Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, New Kids on the Block, and Led Zeppelin!

A very VERY special thank-you to our “Actor” and Andi. Both were exceptionally professional and Andi, especially, went above/beyond – I didn’t realize how much I’d need her assistance and she jumped in so willingly. Both of them really represented you guys so well. We’ll certainly be calling you again if/when we ever need more character help. Y’all run a great show and we’re thrilled to have you as a resource! Alisa W.

“Hi, guys! (I’ll be collective to the team [grin] – I just wanted to thank everyone for helping us rock our event – hate to be all cheesy but there’s no better way to explain it – Your character was the HIT of the party (hah. party.) and my husband and his team made so many new contacts because of him – WELL worth all the planning!!!” Pamela S.

“These guys did a great job. Costumes were excellent, the actors stayed in character throughout and they were great with kids. Would hire again. Communication and confirmation prior to event were top notch as well.” Srihari H.

“Characters for Hire did an amazing experience for my son’s birthday. They were very personable and the costumes were excellent. Could be better versed in the storyline but not everyone is a fanatic. The actors were professional and I would hire again for another event should the occasion arise.” Don J.

I just wanted to thank you very much for all your help and support with Max’s Birthday party on Saturday. We greatly appreciate how accommodating and professional your entire staff was. I must say that everyone was very impressed with just how fabulous the show was. You guys did an amazing job and Max was very happy!” Frida W.

“On very short notice Characters for hire provided awesome entertainment for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. People can’t stop talking about the great entertainment!!! Thanks NICK!!” Geoff G.

“Hired characters to come to my son’s 5th birthday party. The kids loved it and made it a memorable experience. He battled them and then they all took turns taking photos with him. It wasn’t cheap by any means but in my opinion, it was worth the cost. Definitely a great alternative to the magician/clown options out there for kids entertainment.” Chuckles W.

“The guys at Characters For Hire were amazing! We hired the characters for my sons 5th birthday party. The training was a huge hit! And all the guys were wonderful with taking photos with the children and making sure that no one was afraid lol. The costumes they use and the sabers all top notch! Characters for hire are worth the money tenfold, for priceless memories the kids (and myself) will have for a lifetime!!!!!! Thanks guys!!!!!” Genevieve W.

“I decided to hire 4 characters from Characters for Hire for my son’s 5th birthday. The children were all fully engaged for the full hour of training as well as the combat scene at the end. I was extremely pleased with the level of professionalism from all of the actors and the authenticity of the costumes, mannerisms, and voice sound alike from every character. This was a party that the children and parents will be talking about for a very long time. It was worth every penny and more!!! Thank you Nick! You are doing an amazing job and I truly appreciate the time you always set aside for the many, many hours of phone calls and emails with me to make sure everything was the way I wanted it! You went above and beyond and I highly recommend this company and the professional actors that work for you!” Renel C.

I would like to thank you and your actors for giving my son the best birthday ever! OMG I can not express my appreciation. When the kids saw the characters come out and perform, They were blown away! The actors were so professional and worked very well with the children. Xavier S.
