Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. You want everything to be perfect – from the dress and the flowers, to the food and the wine. And, of course, the music. The right music can make or break your wedding reception. We often advise that if you're unable to book your perfect wedding band...don't compromise on another band, book a good DJ. A poor performance from a band can ruin a wedding reception, however it's less likely that a DJ could have the same effect.
When looking for a wedding band, it’s important to think of it as an investment. You don’t want to skimp when it comes to your wedding entertainment, as this is a once in a lifetime event. We recommend researching multiple bands and then narrowing down the options by considering the type of music you’d like to hear, the size of the band, and the dance floor capacity. It’s also a good idea to ask for video samples of the band’s performances, to get a better sense of their style and sound. Another important factor to consider is the band’s availability. Make sure to enquire about their availability during your wedding season and double check to see that they’re free on the day of your wedding. Good bands will be booked 1-2 years in advance.
The best way to know if a band is the right fit for your wedding is to take the time to get to know them. Consider the type of music they usually play and if their sound fits the type of atmosphere you wish to create for your wedding. We also recommend seeing the band live if possible – this will give you a chance to observe them first hand and get a better sense of their energy and presence. It’s also very important to find out what services the band provides. Do they come with their own equipment or will you need to provide your own? Do they provide all their own lights, sound and staging? What is their cancellation policy? These are all important things to consider.
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, you’ll need to make the final decision. We recommend approaching the decision-making process with an open mind – looking at factors such as cost, availability, and sound. We also suggest checking the band’s reviews from past clients, to get an additional outside opinion on the band’s performance. This will give you abetter idea of how well the band is liked and if their music works for a variety of occasions. •
