When planning your big day, one of the many things to consider is whether to have a live band or DJ. Whilst each couple’s dream day is no doubt different, there are some key things everyone should bear in mind when deciding what kind of entertainment to opt for…


Planning a wedding


The music you choose for your reception will affect the overall atmosphere and how many guests get up to dance and how long they dance for! Live bands add an element of excitement to the evening that pre-recorded tracks cannot match. The performance element that musicians provide for guests is also something to consider. A great band will interact with their audience, get people up to dance, feel the mood and match it accordingly.


Whether you opt for a live band or a DJ it is vital they are able to play a variety of pieces. Whilst you may want most songs to cater for a certain demographic, it’s important to indulge relatives from a different generation with one or two of their favourite tunes too. If you choose a live band they may be able to play specially agreed pieces too, for example during the drinks reception or whilst you cut the cake.


When deciding whether to have a lived band or a DJ it’s helpful to know how much space is available – both for the band or decks as well as for guests to dance in. Keep this in mind when deciding on your venue.
