Tips On How to Choose the Right Wedding Entertainment for Your Big Day
Watch your entertainers perform elsewhere.
Modern technology has made it possible for you to watch past performances of wedding DJs and bands from the comfort of your own home, thanks to YouTube.
But nothing compares to seeing these entertainers live in action. If you have the time and ability, we strongly encourage you to check out your entertainment prospects at one of their events. That way, you can assess how well they do with the crowd, and if their entertainment value remains consistent throughout the evening.
Don't flock to the most inexpensive option out there.
It doesn't take long to realise that planning a wedding – no matter how simple or complex – can be costly. It's only natural to look for ways to trim your budget, but your entertainment should not be one of those elements impacted by cost-cutting.
In the end, you'll get what you paid for. Pricier musicians and DJs will almost certainly have tremendous experience with weddings, making them far better suited for your event than, say, a local band you found at a coffee shop.
Don't take their word for it. Ask around!
Wedding DJs and entertainers are just like any other business out there: they do well to talk themselves up to their customers and clients.
Don't just believe everything these folks feed to you. Getting unbiased reviews and feedback from past clients should be a non-negotiable. If a band or DJ isn't willing to put you in contact with a previous client, that's your cue to move on to the next option.
Make sure they'll take requests.
When it comes to hiring a wedding DJ, requests shouldn't be a problem. But they become a bit more complicated if you hire a live band.
Unlike DJs, bands typically don't have access to thousands of songs. They have a specific setlist they can turn to, meaning your wedding song requests could go unanswered.
As you begin your search, try to come up with a variety of songs you could potentially have played at your wedding. That way, your bands can tell you whether they're intimately experienced with these genres.
Should you allow music requests from your wedding guests? Learn more now!
Sign a contract. Always.
Having a contract in place is a good idea for each and every single one of your wedding vendors, entertainment included.
Your entertainment contract should include the performer's fee, arrival/finish times, and any other extras you want to have.
For example, some performers bring their supplies, but others may wish to use existing speakers or cabling.
You also want to outline cancellation fees, while establishing a fail-safe in case someone in the band falls ill.
