How to Decide Between a Band or a DJ for Your Wedding

How to Decide Between a Band or a DJ for Your Wedding

When you are deciding between a band or DJ for your wedding entertainment, there are a number of considerations. Here are a few quick pros and cons to help you make an informed decision.

Wedding Bands

Pros: There’s nothing quite like a live performance. When a band is interacting with the wedding guests, it can create a really special atmosphere that you want on your big night.

Cons: Bands tend to be more expensive than a DJ, if for no other reason than a band is multiple people. Also, a band is limited to playing the songs they know, so you don’t have as much variety or opportunity for special requests.

Wedding DJs

Pros: Your DJ can find the songs that are on your must-have list, and probably has thousands of songs you would never have thought of. There’s no end to the number of request people can make, and DJs are experienced in getting people out on the dance floor and knowing how to read a crowd.

Cons: The request thing can work against you sometimes unless you give the DJ a list of songs you definitely do not want to be played. Also, some DJs work in specific genres, so you may not always get the same variety in musical knowledge.
