When it comes time to select a band for your wedding, there are a few things to consider. Here are our top four tips for choosing the best live entertainment for your wedding.

  1. Set your budget – Remember that the more pieces there are in the band, the more you are likely to spend because everyone in the band will need to take a cut. So if you are trying to keep costs down, you could go with a solo artist instead of a full band.
  2. Choose your favorite style – Are you looking for contemporary and pop music or do you want a band with a more global flair? Many modern bands can provide you with a mix of music including everything from soul to swing.
  3. Decide when the band needs to play – Popular options include as guests are arriving at the ceremony, processional songs during the ceremony, a drinks reception (cocktail hour), during the meal, and following the meal for dancing.
  4. Consider the band’s requirements – How long do they need to set up? What kind of power supply is required? What will you feed the band? Is there enough space at the venue? Don’t forget to reserve a large enough spot, so they don’t have to carry instruments from the far end of the parking lot.
