When it comes to planning your special day, entertainment is going to be at the top of your list. At the heart of the potential photo booths, games, activity stations, or whatever else you choose- is the music. The music will be what puts your guests in the party mood and keeps it going for the entire night. The music providers will also be the ones to make announcements and make sure your party runs smoothly, so choosing the right person/setup is key.
Perks of Having a Band at Your Wedding
Bands offer a uniquely personal experience for your and your guests. Something about how they are playing the instruments and singing live makes things feel very genuine and close. This kind of experience will also allow the band members to interact with your guests, move around, and keep the flow of the party fun and exciting. Wedding bands are trained to get personal and make the experience fun for everyone, it’s a part of the deal. They will also create their setlist catered to your exact wants and needs, so there is no room for error. So, if you want a personal touch, having a band perform is the way to go.
Perks of Having a DJ at Your Wedding
If you like the original versions of your favorite songs, a DJ might be the best option for you. They could also add their own remixing/flow to your favorite tunes as a way to keep the party going and keep it exciting throughout the night. DJs also take up minimal space and have a limited amount of equipment. This is a big perk for a smaller venue or dance floor. Any wedding DJ is also well versed in typical wedding flow and making announcements. They will add a professional experience to your wedding and you won’t have to worry about a thing. Plus, you and your guests can request any song you want, so there are no limits! If you’re looking for a more club-like experience for your wedding, a DJ is your answer.
Band or DJ? How to Choose:
There are perks to having both bands and DJs when it comes to weddings. Your choice will come down to the vibe of your wedding- personal or professional? Mainstream or unique? Another factor to consider is budget. Given the number of people and equipment involved, bands tend to be more expensive than DJs. For a DJ, it is likely to be 1 or 2 people and just a few pieces of equipment. However, they could include lights or other add-ons that could increase the price.
The good news is, you can’t go wrong. Whether you choose a band or a DJ, your wedding will be enjoyable for all of your guests and be an unforgettable experience.
