Wedding Reception Entertainment Live Band Or a DJ?

When you’re planning your wedding recpetions one of the most important decisions you have to make is the entertainment. If people are bored they won’t stay long, which could be a good or bad thing for you. Soooo, do you want to have live entertainment in the form of a band, or a string quartet for example. Or do you want to hire a DJ and have him (or her) spin some tunes all night long. There are several things you should consider when you’re making your wedding entertainment decisions.

A few things for the soon to be bride and groom should think about:

  • What is your entertainment budget?
  • What type of music do you and your guests enjoy listening to?
  • Do you have a favorite band or type of music you’d like to feature at your wedding reception?
  • Speak with friends (especially friends who have recently tied the knot) to see if they have any recommendations if you’re not sure who you want to provide the entertainment. They can let you know how their entertainment went, or if they know someone who might be perfect for your wedding.

What type of entertainment do you want for your wedding reception? If you’re already married, what type of entertainment did you have?

Wedding Transportation

Today there are many different fashionable ways you can arrive at or depart from your wedding. Brides and grooms used to leave from the ceremony in a car with a big old “Just Married” sign in the back window, and cans trailing from strings hanging from the tailgate. Today things are totally different. You can still use a stylish car if you’re really proud of your own car, or if you have a relative with a sports car or something vintage. But these days there are many different modes of transportation for the bride and groom (and even the entire wedding party) can use to get from the wedding to the reception. So relax, kick back and enjoy the ride!

There are several options available, and several things to think about when you’re deciding on how you will get from your wedding to the reception, or to your final destination when the festivities are finished.

Here are some things you should consider when deciding on your mode of wedding transportation.

  • Will you be transporting only the bride and groom, or will you be transporting the entire wedding party. How many people will be riding?
  • How much do you need from your wedding transportation? Will you need someone to get you to the wedding? To the reception? To your final destination when the reception is over?
  • How far will you be traveling? How far away is the reception?
  • What is your wedding transportation budget? Do you need to find cheap or low cost wedding transportation, or do you have a limo rental figured in to your wedding budget?

Some popular wedding transportation methods include limos, stretch hummers, party vans and buses, horse and carriage, or an antique car.

If you’re getting married, or you’re already married, how did you transport the wedding party?
