A live band or a DJ set for Your Wedding Day?
Deciding between a band or a Dj Set for your wedding reception may be tricky, that’s why we want to share some very important tips so that you can make the proper choice.
The thing is that the entertainment will set the tone of the entire event, so it’s extremely important to make some considerations in order to determine what kind of atmosphere you want to get. Of course, a lot depends on the couple's personal preferences and budget but there are also other aspects that need to be considered.
Unlike a Dj, a band costs more because there are more people involved. Furthermore the price of a band may increase according to the performers’ experience, size and travel. DJs are less expensive because it’s a one-man show, but they can’t give you that personalized energy that just a live show can recreate.
Do you want a romantic-lounge wedding? Or you’d better prefer a strong performance with great energy and interaction? The mood you want to create will help you choose between a band or DJ. Bands have their own songs prepared in advance according to the couple’s taste and they can’t improvise everything. The effect, although, will be incredible! A bespoke concert will set you and your guests’ hearts on fire. On the other side, DJs can essentially play any song you request and create a playful, interactive setting pushing and making your guests crazy to popular hits.
Music should change through your wedding day in order to create different moments and different dynamics. Your guest may find more attractive listening to a harp during your wedding celebration, than to an alto sax during the aperitif and to a band during the dinner. Instruments are so emotional and touching: your first dance, your speeches, your unforgettable moments will be accompanied by notes that will stay impressively in your mind for good.
The DJs remain the best solution when it comes to entertaining your wedding party, maybe after a band performance or a piano live show.
A DJ will take up much less space than a drum kit, guitarists, and singers. So if your Wedding venue is not that big opt for a one-man performance.
Anyway, there is no wrong choice when it comes to wedding entertainment, either a band or a DJ will make your wedding day incredible, you just need to select the best option for you.
