A guide to booking surprise secret singers for your wedding | The Undercover Waiters

Are you thinking of booking secret singers for your wedding?

Good choice!

Secret singers are fun, interactive, totally unique and a sure-fire way to surprise your guests and create memories that will last a lifetime.

In this blog post, we’ll break down everything you need to know before hiring secret singers for your wedding!

Why should you hire secret singers?

Usually disguising themselves as the venue waiting staff, secret singers are a great way to bring the element of surprise to your wedding.

All of our secret singers are professionally trained and have years of experience in the entertainment industry under their belt. This means we blend seamlessly into the venue staff, serving your guests food and drink.

No one ever expects our true identities and the sight of their stunned faces when we finally reveal our true identities is priceless!

How does it work?

As Wedding are usually an all-day affair, you are likely to have a lull somewhere during the course of the day, often during the wedding breakfast.

This is where we can help.

We create a scenario that will capture the whole room’s attention before bursting into song, creating the ultimate surprise factor.

There’s no better way to breathe new energy into your guests and get them ready for the evening party.

How many secret singers should I hire?

We find that 2 or 3 secret singers work well for the majority of weddings. Having more than one performer allows them to bounce off one another and build a great rapport with the audience.

It also means they can create lush harmonies and add depth to the performance with multiple vocal styles.

A single performer can work well for a low-key, relaxed performance, or if you’re looking for something that will really get the party started, you can hire a larger ensemble of up to nine secret singers to create a West End experience at your wedding.

What services do The Undercover Waiters offer?

Depending on your budget and number of guests, we create a package that works for you.

Our three main packages are categorised Gold, Platinum and Police.

With our Gold package, your secret singers will serve your guests incognito for up to one hour before breaking into a 45-minute custom-made set with the highest quality backing tracks from trusted sources.

Designed specifically for weddings, our Platinum package includes an additional 45 minute evening set, creating the perfect transition from the seated reception to the dancefloor.

Complete with convincing uniforms and a custom-made scenario, our Police package will have your guests in stitches. Our professionally trained actors will interrupt your party, creating the ultimate shock factor, before breaking into song for a 45-minute set.

Our additional services include, DJ hire, videography, Magic Mirror hire and light up letters. These can be added to the above packages to create a bespoke experience tailored to your event.

How do you tailor the performance to my wedding?

We speak with you over the phone or in person over a cuppa to understand your own individual tastes. You can tell us your special requests which we always endeavour to meet wherever possible.

There are so many ways you can personalise the performance. We will build the set list with you, including any specific songs you want to hear. And if you an idea for the big reveal, we’ll make it happen.

We know that planning a wedding is a lot of work, so if you would rather, we can decide the details on your behalf!

What do we do once we have booked our secret singers?

Aside from a chat over the phone or in person, we will arrange everything for you.

We liaise with the wedding planner, venue and your DJ to make sure everyone is in the loop and ready for the surprise. Timings, uniforms and equipment, including a professional PA system are handled by our team, as well.

All you have to do is sit back, relax and watch the show unfold!
