Wedding entertainment is one of the crucial parts of setting the environment and mood of a wedding ceremony. Choosing the right entertainment shouldn’t be overlooked. So, before booking for a live band or DJ you have to take note of the following tips:
Think of how important it is of hiring a live band at your wedding reception. Will it be more fun and memorable than having a DJ since the music is performed live in the venue? Some are considering that a live band is casually classier than a DJ who plays the same songs guest hear daily on the radio.
Try to search for a wedding band that plays with in your area so that you’ll get to know what music forte they are into. Most importantly, be sure that the band is willing and able to learn how to play your “first dance” song and any other specific songs you would like to hear at your reception.
Know whether the price tag of booking a live band as entertainment for your reception will fit into your wedding budget. Live bands can be fairly expensive and almost always cost more than DJs.
Assess whether you like to choose between a live band and a DJ. It is known that many guests prefer DJs as the entertainer because they can hear the songs they love performed by the original artists, rather than covered by a live band. Moreover, DJ’s has a library of library of thousands of songs to choose from unlike a live band that would generally only know 100 songs or fewer.
Have a meeting with the band or DJ before you decide to get a book. The vocalist of the band or the DJ usually is the emcee at your reception, so you’ll need to choose someone you would like to have spoken at your wedding. As such, the meeting will give you the chance to get an idea of how receptive the band or DJ will be to your requests and needs.
Lastly, talk about the payment and scheduling of the live band or DJ you choose to get.
Many of the live bands and DJ’s will request either full payment or a deposit a few months advance of your wedding reception to reserve the date. If they asked for the partial payment, you’ll have to pay for the rest of the amount you agree to the day of your wedding.
