4 Reasons to Choose a Band for Your Wedding Reception
It’s no secret that planning a wedding is hard work. There are so many different details to consider, from the dress to the venue to the cake to the food… and, of course, the entertainment. It’s this area where many people become unstuck; should you go DJ, wedding band or a DIY-playlist that you play through a speaker.
To make this planning process easier for you, we have a few things to say about why choosing a band for your entertainment is always the best idea…
Bands always beat a playlist
Perhaps you’re tempted to save a few dollars of your wedding budget by forgoing a band and choosing your own tracks. After all, your favourite songs are on Spotify and it should only take you a few hours to make the best party playlist anyone has ever heard… right?
Here’s the thing; having a live band will always create a better atmosphere than a regular playlist. They can tailor their performance to your favourite songs and throw in a few that they know are crowd favourites as well. Not only will this mean less work for you in the lead up to your wedding day, but you won’t need to worry about your guests having a good time – with a band, it’s guaranteed that they will.
You won’t have to organise equipment
Hiring equipment like speakers and microphones can be extremely expensive and a nightmare to set up. No one wants to have their speakers malfunction right before all the guests arrive - but when you get a band to play, you can feel confident that you won’t run into these mishaps.
Most wedding bands bring with them all their own equipment. This makes it much easier for you to sit back and relax as the entertainment is taken care of from start to finish. Among the chaos of your wedding day, you will be glad that you chose this simple option.
It gets the party going
Most bands are made up of seasoned performers; people who are passionate about bringing music to celebrations and watching the crowd love every second of it.
This might not seem like an obvious reason to choose a band, but it is. Performers bring personality to the room, whether it’s through their voice, their dance-moves or their humour. They know how to get people out of their seats and enjoying themselves, which is what all bride-and-grooms-to-be want for their wedding day.
Ultimately, it will make your celebration more lively and memorable in a way that a playlist connected to your iPhone never could.
It adds a unique touch to your special day
All of these factors lead up to one thing; you want to look back on your wedding day and remember it as the magical, blissful time it was. When you remember something as special as your first dance or cutting the cake, it should be done to the soundtrack of gorgeous, perfectly timed music that you love.
These are all the things that make your big day truly your own. So whether you’re into country, pop, rock or classical music, find a band who can bring this part of your personality to your wedding – it won’t be a decision you’ll regret.
