Are you ready to start looking for a wedding band for your ceremony and reception? Here are a few tips to help you make the best choice so that things go smoothly, and everyone enjoys your special day.

  • Start with the budget – If you don’t know how much you can afford to spend, shopping for a wedding band is going to be tough. Remember that the more people there are in a band, the more you are likely to pay because everyone needs to take a cut.
  • Think about styles of music you enjoy – Some bands are very versatile, and others focus on just a few genres. Make sure you know in advance what you want to hear.
  • When do you need music? – Is your band going to playing everything from the processional music to the last dance, or are you just looking for dance music at the reception? You need to know what your band is capable of. You will often get the best deal by hiring one band for everything, including the cocktail hour, your first dance, and background music during dinner.
  • What does the band need? – You also need to be sure that the band has the ability to play at the venue or venues where you have your ceremony and reception.
