Planning a wedding is one of the most time consuming and challenging things you will ever do. Everyone wants to get it perfect. They want to have the perfect menu, decorations, and they want to have the perfect musical entertainment to set the mood for the evening.
When it comes to your music options, there are dozens of DJ’s and bands of all sorts. Which one you choose will mostly depend on your musical taste along with work ethic and of course general connection with the band . Some people prefer dance music, others prefer classic rock – it’s just how it is. Some bands have more experience and get along with others very easily. A charismatic professional wedding band is the key to a successful evening.
Regardless of the type of music you prefer for your wedding, it is very important to avoid the common mistakes when hiring a wedding band or DJ:
1. A Colleague at Work Said They Were Good, So We Booked Them
You will undoubtedly be offered advice about your wedding music selection from friends, family and people at work. However, even if a colleague was recently at a wedding and said the wedding band was good (and they might be), it’s important to assess the band yourself. What someone else thinks is good may not be what you like or fit with your wedding theme. Sure, you can take recommendations, but make sure you take the time to check them out first.
2. Shopping Based on Cost Only
As they say, you get what you pay for. Sure, your buddy’s band could do your wedding for cheap, but is that what you really want? Probably not. Your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience (hopefully!) and you want everything to be perfect. If you want great music, a professional wedding band in Toronto is the way to go. It will be more than worth the investment.
3. Not Hearing the Band Before Booking
This is perhaps the biggest mistake you can make when booking a wedding band. Before hiring any band, or DJ, it’s extremely important that you not only meet with them, but also have a chance to hear them play. Know what they like to play and how good they are at playing it before booking them.
Check out their YouTube page, website, and more importantly check out a gig if possible to ensure you are choosing a wedding band that fits with your wedding music plans.
Avoiding these mistakes when booking a wedding band in Toronto will get you one step closer to booking the perfect set of music for your big day.
