Whether or not you consider yourself a music person, the music at your wedding can change your big day from an okay one to an amazing event. If you’re considering live music for your wedding, there are a few things you should consider when planning your special day!
1. Ask Your Friends and Family for Recommendations
Although the internet is at our fingertips, sometimes the best suggestions come from trusted people in your life. Be on the lookout for bands playing at other people’s weddings, text friends that have gotten married already or that know people in a band, or ask on your social media accounts. Try to use your network to find the best band for your wedding.
2. Go See Them Live or Watch Videos
Now that you have potential bands to choose from, you should go see them in person or watch videos of them online if that is available. See if the band interacts with the crowd, keep the energy throughout the performance, and if they are truly talented.
3. Do a Sound Check
Before your big day, you need to make sure your band or solo performer sounds good in the space that they are playing in. You want to make sure everyone can hear the music, but also quiet enough so that your guests can speak with one another. A professional can help you with this during a sound check.
4. Make a “Must Play” List of Songs
Don’t just assume that your performer will play every one of you and your spouse’s favorite songs. You want to make sure that your band is able to play the songs on your “must play” list. You should give them this well in advance just in case they have to learn a few new songs.
5. Enjoy the Performance!
Finally, enjoy the live music! Get onto the dance floor and dance your heart out for the rest of the night. Spend time with your family and friends celebrating your special moment. The band is for your day so make the most out of it!
