I Dare You: Get a Mermaid
Many times you will see that grooms run the gamut when it comes to getting a band or DJ. Some make the argument that they love live music, others say they don’t want to see someone else sing covers. If you’ve opted for a DJ, this may leave funding available in your wedding budget for some “other” entertainment.
Now, when I was in college, one of my major’s pre-reqs was to take Sociology. I had the best professor who was a freelance writer for Cosmopolitan magazine. At one point, she told us a story of how she had to interview Steve Tyler of Aerosmith for the magazine. She said she stepped into his house and he had mermaids swimming in his living room. INSANE.
Well, now your event can have a mermaid, too. I’m a huge proponent of creating fun, unique events. We’ve given you options of incorporating some tasteful, yet nonconventional ideas into your wedding to make it the most talked about event of the year. However, Zhantra takes it to a whole new level.
Aerialists and Belly Dancers (funny how they are in the same position…)
Imagine ditching the “traditional” introductions into your reception and coming in between lines of Carnival dancers who can then do a short performance for you and your guests.
Fire dancers and synchronized swimmers are ALWAYS fun. We’ve done fire dancers towards the end of the evening to avoid the reception lull and guests LOVED it. The show was great and gave the guests a chance to rest and enjoy the entertainment. When it was time for the show to be over, every one was excited and ready to tear up the dance floor again.

These strolling tables are my absolutely favorite. They add so much character…pardon the pun. These tables can move, hence the term “strolling” or the can be stationary.
So go on…get a strolling table…or a fire dancer…or a mermaid. Shake it up!
