Planning your wedding means that you have to come up with all the details on your own. From choosing the venue to looking for the right wedding suppliers, you have to be careful in picking out the ones that you will be hiring for your big day. Among the things you need to be selective of is the musician you will hire as your entertainment—whether you go for a band or a DJ.
Here are some tips to help you find one that can turn your wedding reception into a lively event:
Get some references
You may have had some friends that hired bands or DJs in the past. If so, get some references from them so you can be assured of the type of work they can do on your wedding day. You can also check out their website for the testimonials of previous clients they have worked with.
Cheap may not mean the best
Finding a cheap band or DJ does not necessarily mean that it is the best decision. You have to be selective of the entertainment you choose so that you don’t end up with a comical performer. If this happens, your reception may turn into a disaster. Make sure to listen to the band or DJ perform live so you get an idea of how good they are.
Be clear with what you want
If there are some songs that you do not want to be played on your wedding reception, make sure that you inform the band or DJ about these songs. You can list down these songs so they can avoid playing them.
Remember to attend one of their shows live so you get a feel of how good they can perform for your big day. If you’re ready and have already chosen one, you can hire them and prepare a contract.
