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?
