Music and Entertainment
MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT WILL BE AN INTEGRAL PART OF YOUR WEDDING PLANNING
For many brides, choosing the music and entertainment for their wedding will be one of the most important decisions that they make. In many cases, music and entertainment will place very high on the list of emotional, core elements of a wedding. Music sets the mood and reflects the personalities of those involved. The bride will most definitely want to hear here favorite songs played at her wedding. For brides where MUSIC is a HUGE part of their lives, the choices they make in this category of wedding planning will be crucial.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT VENDORS FOR YOUR WEDDING.
When we hear the term ‘music’ for your wedding, we automatically think of the wedding disc jockey or live band for the reception. For many weddings, however, there will be more music and entertainment to think about. For instance, a string quartet for your wedding ceremony music, or how about a piano player for your cocktail hour? The disc jockey is the most obvious example of your wedding music. That said, we want to take it a step further and bring you some food for thought about the other areas of your wedding that you will need to consider when it comes to the MUSIC and Entertainment for your wedding.
But before we get to that, let us first talk about the wedding reception.
DISC JOCKEY OR A BAND, OR BOTH?
A good disc jockey or live band is the key to getting your wedding guests energized and ready to burn off some of the calories consumed during wedding feast. Make sure to interview as many dj’s and bands as you can. Gather information about packages and pricing, and be sure to see them live in person or on a video. Seeing the vendor in action will play a key part on whether or not that particular vendor is right for you!
HIRE A PROFESSIONAL!
Don’t cut costs on your wedding disc jockey or band! You might regret it in the long run. But don’t just take our word for it, check out some of these sad videos of not so professional wedding disc jockey’s.

Live bands are a great way to have a concert at your wedding reception. If you want to have a live band at your wedding reception, you will need to do lots of research.

If you decide to have a band, check to see if the band also handles the announcing/emcee duties of the evening. Does the band having someone that will announce...

Do you want a wedding disc jockey that plays to the crowd? is more talkative? and comments during key moments of your wedding? Or do you prefer a disc jockey who is more laid back, passive and will pretty much just play the music that you have requested. There is no right or wrong answer here. Just be aware that there are different styles of wedding disc jockey’s to choose from.
FORWARD: This article is based on my experience as a professional wedding vendor in the San Francisco Bay Area wedding community for more 17+ years, AND as someone who has planned not one, but TWO weddings for myself and my wife.
