If you are planning a wedding, there are so many things to consider, and the lingering pandemic isn’t making things easier. That’s why SGM Events is taking the guesswork out of hiring a band for your wedding. Here are some of the most crucial things to think about:
- Budget – Bands are often more expensive than other forms of wedding entertainment because the pay is being split several ways. However, if you want to provide guests with a complete music experience, it’s worth fitting this into your budget.
- Preferred music style(s) – A band can only play the songs they know, so choosing a band often comes down to finding one that plays the styles of music you want to hear and dance to.
- Event plan – Will the band be playing music to welcome guests? Will they be playing the processional music? Do you have a special request for your first dance that they may need to learn? You need to determine when in the evening you want the band to play unless you are just going to save them for the dance party portion of the reception.
- Band requirements – Find out what the band needs as far as electricity and other matters. You will need to check with the venue to see what they allow/offer.
