School Formal Entertainment

School Formal Entertainment Ideas

 

The school formal is the night everyone looks forward to all year, so it’s definitely one you want to make memorable. The entertainment can make or break your formal, so you have to make sure you get it right. The most important thing about organising a school formal is that it’s a chance for everyone to let loose and have fun after a year of hard work and exams, as well as a way for school leavers’ to say goodbye as they move into the next stage of their lives. Putting together the perfect entertainment is a great way to make sure your guests celebrate their formal in style.

If there’s one thing a school formal can’t go ahead without, it’s music. It’s the most famous piece of formal entertainment, and for good reason. Proper music choices can really set the mood when it comes to entertaining your formal guests. It’s possible to integrate music into the entirety of your formal evening, from beginning to end – when your guests are arriving, have a string quartet in your entrance hall to meet them. It’s an extra touch that will make their night really special, as well as fill any awkward silences when you’re waiting for your venue to fill. After dinner is when the big entertainment pieces tend to come out, and you’ll want to employ a live band or a DJ to get everyone out and enjoying themselves on the dance floor. A formal is a big party, so make it feel like one!

Don’t get so caught up in finding the perfect band or DJ for your school formal that you forget that music isn’t everything. Photo booths and selfie mirrors are a fantastic option for a school formal, as it means everyone gets a cute memento to take home with them. You can even get the prints customised with the name of your school and the date of your formal for the added nostalgia factor. If you want to make the evening really special, you could even hire an LED dance floor so your formal guests can really party in style.
