Wedding Planning

Which Entertainment Is Best For Your Wedding?

By  | 

Getting married is an exciting occasion in anyone’s life.  You will spend months, if not years planning the big day; hoping to ensure that everything is perfect.  Fortunately there are several firms which can help you to choose the right solution to each of your issues.

One issue which can be difficult to resolve is which type of entertainment is best to have at your wedding reception.  There are several different ones to choose from:

The Live Band

This is one of the best options for creating a great atmosphere.  The issue will be which band is right for your special day.  To ensure you have the right ambience you will need to speak to Main Event Music; they will be able to guide you through the process and explain which band is likely to offer the best music for your needs and desires.  Of course, you will also be able to listen to a snippet of music from each of the bands as this will help you to choose.

It is important to have already chosen your venue as this can affect the sound quality of the live band.  Again the right firm can assist by advising which band is likely to get the best sound at your venue.

The range of live bands available is quite impressive, from traditional orchestra, to deep house and even traditional boogie.  There will certainly be something which caters to your tastes.

The DJ

An alternative to live music is to use a DJ for your wedding music.  A good DJ will generally play a range of different music; moving through the ages to modern day.  This will often be seen as more of a background event although it should still get people onto the dance floor!  In general a DJ is cheaper than hiring a live band but the ambience will be very different.

An alternative to this is to have a live band to start your wedding reception and then switch to a DJ later in the event.  If your event space is big enough you can even have both going at the same time; although this may split the guests!


As alternative style weddings become more popular you will notice more couples than ever before have chosen to not have a live band or any form of music.  It is possible they will have a variety of entertainers performing round the wedding, but some couples will simply prefer not to have the distraction of music.

No matter which your preferred option is or if you wish to mix the different solutions up it is advisable to seek the help of a professional music event co-coordinator, such as the aforementioned one.  This will help to ensure the right music is chosen and your wedding is a success; whether you have a live band or no music at all.

It is worth remembering that, although your wedding day is your special event, supplying music which all your guests will enjoy will help to make the days go smoothly and ensure it is a day which will be remembered for all the right reasons.
