It can be difficult to take a step back and think about the smaller things. It’s all venues, seating plans, menus, and guest lists!

If you’re struggling to decide on music for your wedding, keep reading because we’re here to help!
Choose Between a DJ or Live Music
When it comes to the evening entertainment at your wedding, there are two ways to fill the dancefloor. Both DJs and bands have loads of benefits.
Hiring a DJ is a great option to save some money while still bringing an amazing party atmosphere to the night. Here are some of the benefits of hiring a DJ to provide music for your wedding;
- varied setlist—there will be something for everyone
- they can take requests
- they’ll read the room and play music to suit
- there won’t be any bum notes or bad singing (unless your guests get loud!)
- they’re often cheaper than a live band
You might think a DJ is a little “old school,” but you’ll find some fantastic DJs who break the cliche of an old guy playing his old favorites.
If you decide to book a live band, you’ll probably pay a little more, but for good reason;
- they’ll create an atmosphere that you can only get from live music
- they’ll engage with your guests and could even get them involved
- a band will bring their own unique sound, making it more memorable
- you can choose a band that fits your own tastes
- more people on stage makes for a better atmosphere
Whatever you choose, make sure it’s someone who is reputable and professional to give yourself complete peace of mind.
Choosing wedding music for during the day is often an afterthought, but there are plenty of opportunities for memories to be made through the day.
There are a few aspects to the ceremony that benefit from music.
Choosing a song that’s special to you for walking down the aisle can truly make it unforgettable for everyone involved. The same goes for the signing of the register and even music while you leave the ceremony.
So you’ve had the perfect ceremony, and you’ve spent hours choosing a wedding caterer to provide the perfect meal. But there’s often some time in between while you have photographs taken. A live performer can help the day flow by providing music during the drinks reception.
Your guests will be entertained, and the time will pass flawlessly into the rest of the day.
