They have the planning down for the ceremony, but there's still the reception that needs to be planned for. This is the perfect place for you to help out! It's the best place for you to add your flair to the whole event. What is one way that you can add some of your taste as well as show how much you love who you're marrying? Booking the band or DJ!
Sure, you could always get speakers and just hook up a phone that has music on it, but that takes away the romance and novelty from the whole experience. Hiring a professional band or DJ to provide the fun and excitement to the wedding reception is the best possible way for you to make the day remarkable. Imagine dancing with the love of your life, while the live band provides the ambiance. By playing and singing that particular song, it adds depth to the romance of your first dance. Just the presence and energy that comes with a live band is enough to set the unique mood for your big day.
Think back to the last live concert you went to, and imagine that kind of energy at your reception. That's what wedding bands or DJs do. They help emcee and get the crowd to move and have a good time. If you're worried about not finding a band that can provide the kind of music you want, don't fret because there are plenty of wedding bands out there. If there's a particular artist that you are crazy about, then there is more than likely a group that can perform a specific artist's songs. Or if you wanted a themed setlist, then there are also bands out there that can do all of the best hits from the 80's and even if you wished to have strictly smooth jazz or country, there are groups that can do that as well. If there's a style you want, then there is a band or DJ our there that will provide it!
The process of picking out a band is much like the process of picking out the food or the cake. You will want to view your options based on your requirements and tastes, then have them audition for you. Or in the case for the live entertainment, do some research or have them send in videos or recording of them playing so that you can get the feel of how they play and whether or not you want them to be your live entertainment.
Most wedding bands have a broad range of music and, on average, know 130 songs right off the bat. They can also perform songs that are requested from you when they are given notice in advance. The live entertainment of a wedding band will give your wedding or wedding reception that special romantic ambiance that will make your special day brilliant.
