Why hire an arcade machine for your wedding?

Over the past 20 years, there has been a revolution in wedding entertainment.

From photo booths and street food stalls, there has been an ever-growing range of unique and wonderful additions that can be added to even the most traditional weddings.

With arcade machines being the latest, yet uniquely retro, additions being found at British Weddings, let's take a look at why you should consider hiring some at yours.

Arcade machines offer that extra wow factor

Although bouncy castles, bands, and DJs were once the staples of wedding entertainment, there's nothing quite like surprising guests with something a little different.

If you have friends and family that love retro arcade machines, there's nothing quite like being able to cater to individual tastes and interests.

More often than not, we've found that even people who haven't played arcade machines before have totally immersed themselves in games such as Donkey Kong, Space Invaders, or Super Mario Bros.

They're great for kids and teenagers

Although most adults adore weddings, they can be a little long in the tooth for children and teenagers.

With that in mind, Arcade Machines provide the perfect source of entertainment throughout the afternoons and/or evenings so that the adults can enjoy the rest of the day's proceedings.

What's more, due to the fact that the machines are hired out for the day, parents don't have to worry about forking out spare change to keep the machines going.

We offer a range of packages

No wedding is the same, which is why we offer totally bespoke hire packages to each individual customer.

From the number of machines you require, the genre of games, or even the individual games you want, we have hundreds of options in our arsenal to impress and entertain your guests.

Furthermore, any price quoted to you includes the delivery of machines, their installation within the entertainment area, and later collection.

Our games list is expansive

We know that everyone prefers their own genre of games.

From racing through to shooters and fighting games, we have something for everyone.

Including games from just about every era, we specialise in searching out and locating classic and hard-to-find arcade machines so that we can provide our customers with an unrivalled retro gaming experience.

Can these arcade machines be hired for other events?

This is a question that we get asked a lot, and the truth is that yes, we offer our arcade machines out for a range of selected events, including when someone wants to hire a machine on a long-term basis.
