When it comes to your wedding day, the right music is paramount in creating the perfect atmosphere for both you and your guests. An exceptional wedding band can transform an ordinary celebration into something truly spectacular. At MJBE, we understand that hiring a live wedding band is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most couples and wedding planning can be daunting process. To help, we’ve compiled some expert tips to assist you in choosing and organizing the musical entertainment for your special day.
The truth is, most good wedding bands book up about a year in advance. With the majority of weddings taking place on Saturdays in the summer, desirable dates can become competitive for brides and grooms. The best bet for getting the band you want for your wedding date? Secure them as soon as you’ve locked in your venue.
As with most things in this life, “good things aren’t cheap and cheap things aren’t good”. Keep that in mind when wondering what a live wedding band costs. How important is it that your reception be a rockin’ celebration? Aside from the exchange of vows, most brides and grooms agree that the reception is the best part of their wedding. Hiring high energy live music for a wedding reception makes for an unforgettable evening worth splurging on. Your wedding band is instrumental to the success of your big day, so if they meet—or exceed—your expectations show them your thanks with a little extra gratuity.
As you begin the wedding planning process, discuss with your partner the details of how you envision your dream day unfolding. Is there a song you desire to be serenaded down the isle to? Would a Photo Booth up level your wedding memories? At MJBE, we offer multi-service packages to reduce costs and ensure congruity amongst vendors. For a small additional fee you can plug a guitarist into your ceremony, a band into your cocktail, or hire a photographer to capture the day. Ask us how packaging services can save you a bundle!
Wedding bands come in all shapes and sizes and each needs a minimum amount of space to configure their musical equipment and perform optimally. Know the measurements of your performance area, develop a floor plan, and find out if your venue has any noise restrictions. Most importantly, ask your venue what their set up is for in-house lighting and sound. Most halls and restaurants don’t have adequate audio/visual capability for a live band to create a dynamic performance. Being professionals in their field, this is something your band can easily organize for you.
