So, you’ve decided that you want to hire a live band to perform at your wedding and/or reception. This is a great choice, one that you and your guests are sure to appreciate on your big day. Now that you’ve committed yourself to this, it’s time to get into action and find the band that will fit your needs the best. But where should you start? If you simply flip through online listings and other resources, you might find a lot of options – but how many of them will be a good fit? Here is a list of questions that you should ask yourself so that you can effectively narrow down your options and get closer to choosing the wedding band of your dreams. For the best expert advice, you should consult with a good wedding supplier such as weddingsuppliers.ie
3 Questions That Will Factor into the Band You Hire
Long before you dial a number or submit an email to reach out to a wedding band or wedding band organizer, you need to know what you want. You might have a clear idea already, so run with that! But if you need a bit of guidance along the way, ask yourself these three important questions and factor your answers into the bands you seek out.
What Songs Do I Want Them to Perform?
Some wedding bands stick within a subset of genres, or even one specific genre, so they may not be familiar with the songs that you consider important. To make sure that any band you interview is up to the task, write down the names and artists behind the songs that you consider essential for your wedding day.
Do I Want a Band at My Wedding, My Reception, or Both?
Some bands thrive in reception venues while others excel at actual wedding ceremonies. You have several options here, including:
- Hiring two separate wedding bands (one for the reception and one for the wedding).
- Hiring a band that can perform at both the wedding and the reception.
- Hiring a band only for the reception.
- Hiring a band only for the wedding.
- It’s up to you to decide where a live performance best fits into your plans for your wedding day.
What Band Size Will Fit Within My Chosen Venue(s)?
Clearly, you’re not going to be able to hire a full, brass big band if your reception is taking place in a tiny, intimate venue with limited space. Consider the limitations of the venue you’ve chosen and consider capacity when choosing a band.
When planning a wedding, there are a lot of details that will have to be considered and many decisions that will have to be made. One consideration you will eventually have to have at the front of your mind is your choice of music – not only the songs and genres, but also how that music will delight your guests. Some couples prefer DJs and others enjoy the simplicity of an MP3 playlist and some solid speakers. Others, those with the budget and the taste, hire wedding bands to set the tone.
There is nothing wrong with any of these choices, of course, but there is certainly something to be said for recruiting the services of a live wedding band. In this article, we’ll give you three pretty compelling reasons to consider a live band for your own big day.
A Wedding Band Fuels the Vibe
One thing that an MP3 playlist cannot do is read the room. A performer, on the other hand, can see when something extra may be needed to get your wedding reception-goers on their feet. They can select from your chosen songs and then infuse them into the mood to keep the vibe that you had in mind, going for the whole night.
It’s Like Hosting a Private Concert
Nothing beats the thrill and excitement of seeing a performer doing their thing live. You can bring this fun directly to your wedding reception, thus giving your guests a privileged front-row seat to a live performance. Sure, the wedding and reception are all about the newlyweds. Still, why not treat your nearest and dearest friends and relatives to the kind of experience that only a live wedding band can provide?
Wedding Bands are Varied and Flexible
No matter your flavor, you can find a wedding band that fits your needs to perfection. You can choose a large, brass band to belt out your favorite swing hits, a solo singer to keep a more low-key, lounge-like vibe, or anything in-between. You should choose your wedding band to fit the occasion and your personal style, but that isn’t very hard. There are many enthusiastic and experienced wedding bands around to help you accomplish the wedding and reception of your dreams.
These are only three of many great reasons to choose a wedding band over a DJ or MP3 playlist. When you meet with your own prospective wedding band candidates, you might come up with your own reasons to add to this list. Whatever motivates you to choosing a live wedding band for your big day, know that there is no wrong reason to make that choice.
