How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Band
Everyone wants their wedding to be special, which is why every aspect is so important and requires a lot of planning. From the ceremony to the reception, every decision is crucial. More and more couples are choosing to have live bands instead of a DJ at their wedding receptions now, and this requires a lot of planning. If you are only having one band, there is a lot to be taken into consideration, and it is essential to plan and choose properly. So today we have a guide on how to choose the perfect wedding band.
How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Band
Before you even consider what type of genre you would like, or whether the band you want are available, think about your wedding venue. If you are planning on having a smaller, more intimate affair, you need to consider the room that is available. A band will take up considerably more room than one DJ, and you need to ensure that there is enough room for not just them, but all of their equipment as well. There is less versatility than a DJ as well, which could prove problematic should you and your partner have different tastes in music. If you want any specific music, you will have to send the band a set list prior to them arriving, or just simply sit back and listen to what they have to offer.
If you do not have room for a whole band to perform at your reception, but still want some form of live entertainment the ceremony is the perfect place to have a string quartet or a harpists or even opera singers and choirs. It keeps your guests entertained before you arrive and whilst you are signing the register. It also adds to the romance of the day, and is a really relaxing way to entertain your guest throughout.
If you have the room to host a live band, then it really does add to your wedding. Having a band you love play your first dance song, which no doubt you would have agonised over, really makes it feel special. Although you might have a song that is very special to you both as a couple, having a live band perform that song as your first dance is incredibly personal. You can feel like the only couple in the whole world, particularly as some bands will personalise the song to really make it your own.
Entertainment, like we said is an incredibly important part of your day, and it is important that you agree on a genre. Many companies, such as Warble Entertainment, will help couples pick the best band that will suit both couples’ tastes. They are incredibly trained and have a lot of experience in planning wedding entertainment, and only provide the best bands and musicians to perform on your special day. With Warble Entertainment, it is very easy to choose the perfect wedding band for your day. Not only do you add an incredibly personal touch to your day, but it also means that your guests are kept entertained throughout, even when you are whisked off for your photographs. So there is out guide on how to choose perfect wedding band. What entertainment are you planning to have for your wedding. Would love to hear from you.

Fabulous wedding entertainment – 25 Unforgettable Ideas
Everyone wants their wedding to be memorable. The dress, the venue, the food – it must all be perfect! As the bride, you are almost certain to have the greatest day of your life. After all you are princess for the day! For others, especially younger guests, weddings can be . . . well, a little bit of a bore. To make the day one of the best for everyone else, you must have fabulous entertainment. Here are 25 ideas to make your wedding reception unforgettable.
Fabulous Wedding Entertainment
1. Photo Booth – You could go with simple guest books and disposable cameras on the tables. But how much more fun would your guests have with a photo booth? Provide props for silly pictures and card stock for written messages to hold up. Your guests will have a blast and you will love going through the resulting photos after the wedding. Also consider small video cameras for guests to pass around and catch candid moments.
2. Icebreaker Cards – Worried about people sitting awkwardly together, not sure what to say (or who they’re sitting across from)? Set a stack of icebreaker cards in the center of each table. Include suggestions that won’t be too embarrassing for the introverted, but will be enough to get people introduced and
3. Board Game Table – Sometimes people find it easier to talk to new people over a game. Have a table filled with board games and cards to help them along.
4. Lawn Games – If you are having an outdoor reception, set up giant checkers or Jenga, horseshoes, cornhole, ring toss, or croquet.
5. Bonfire – Another great outdoor idea is a bonfire. Have camping chairs or blankets available to sit on. A table set up with fixings for roasting hot dogs or marshmallows would also be a nice touch.
6. Fireworks – Nothing says, “Celebrate!” like fireworks. Go all out and hire a team to come in and set off a professional display, or provide your guests with sparklers to twirl around.
Famous Band Cost – Wedding Entertainment
So you want a band to play at your wedding. Ideally you’d like One Direction but they are probably a little bit out of your budget. Well how much would a famous band cost anyway? The average cost of a wedding band is about £2,000 or $3,084 and that is steep enough for most people but if you did have unlimited money and imagination, how much would your favourite artist cost to perform at your wedding?
Well the lovely people at Wedding Paper Divas have compiled a famous band shopping list so you know just how much you would need to shell out to secure the services of your dream entertainer.
Wow! Now that’s an hourly rate I could live with. So how much does your favourite famous band cost? Are there are surprises in there? If you are a mere mortal with a normal bank account, you can still have a fab band, from a rocking wedding band Leeds to a a swing band in Swindon. Remember, when choosing your wedding entertainment to go and see them live before booking them. For more tips on choosing a wedding band please see our previous post here.
Wedding Entertainment – Five Reasons To Hire Your Through An Agency
So why should you hire your wedding entertainment through an agency?
There’s a lot to think about when planning a wedding. Even the most simple of weddings would require you to plan for the items you need to buy, the suppliers you need to book, the people you would invite, and a whole lot more. Doing this takes a lot work and most importantly, time.
When it comes to hiring your wedding entertainment, you can do it on your own and spend countless hours searching for the right wedding band. Alternatively you could work with a professional and reliable entertainment agency. They can handle everything entertainment-related on your special day.
Essentially, entertainment agencies do all the hard work so you don’t have to. You won’t have to search for bands on Google. You won’t have to drive all the way to see them perform (only to find out they’re no good). Someone else can negotiate the rate and deal with any nasty surprises. Still not convinced?
Here are more reasons to hire your wedding entertainment through an agency.
1. You don’t have to worry about quality.
Entertainment agencies only work with a pool of quality musicians to ensure that every single event they handle becomes a perfect experience for their clients. They offer a great variety of musicians. Choose from classical artists to party bands. These agencies have people who find the best performers, musicians, and entertainers around.
It is also important to note that the best musicians also choose to be represented by entertainment agencies to manage their bookings properly.
Here’s a quick look at a performance of MuzoMatic, a wedding band in Glasgow connected to premiere live agency Music for Scotland.
Professional entertainment agencies have vast knowledge in the industry. If you have questions regarding a certain band or act, they can easily provide you with answers. They also have years of experience in dealing with any issues that may arise.
2. You’re insured against unexpected circumstances.
Despite the preparation, nasty surprises do happen. What if the band’s guitarist suddenly fell ill? What if the band suddenly pulls out days before your wedding? Circumstances like these may just unleash your inner bridezilla.
With entertainment agencies, you’re sure these unforeseeable events won’t ruin your special day. If a member can’t make it, they automatically send backup or a replacement to ensure your special day still goes on smoothly.
3. You get to save time.
Time – a very precious thing engaged couples can’t get enough of. When you search for wedding entertainment on your own, you usually come across a hundred options. Wading through these results is very frustrating and time-consuming.
Booking your band through a music agency can help you save time and focus on other important elements of the wedding.
You can leave all the worries to people with more knowledge and experience. This will spare you from unnecessary headaches.
4. You’ll know where every penny goes.
You can’t really tell how individual bands and musicians charge for their services. Usually, the variables involved includes the number of musicians, the equipment, set length, and travel time.
Entertainment companies can quote exactly how much a certain band or act charges. They can even break down the expenses. With professional agencies, you can be sure you aren’t hit with unexpected fees. They can also give you suggestions suitable for your budget and theme, potentially helping you save money.
5. You can customise your wedding entertainment.
Anything is possible when you book your entertainment through an agency. You can customise your experience beyond the usual genres or band style.
A dedicated agency supports couples with whatever theme, idea, or concept they have to suit their needs entirely. Clients are free to suggest a change in wardrobe, instrument, staging and style.
Professional entertainment agencies can offer you a great performance, save you time, grant you freedom to customise, and give you peace of mind. Make a choice that makes sense to you.
