Music is one of the most important elements in your upcoming wedding. So how do you find the entertainment that you and your fiancéwill love, and will keep your guests entertained until the early hours? Music is very subjective, so make sure you choose a band that will reflect your personality just like all of the other touches you have meticulously planned.

Communicate

You can only know that a band is the right fit for your big day by having a detailed conversation. Use a website which allows you to message the band directly, then arrange a phone call and even a face to face meeting. This is one of the most important days of your life and you want to be on the same page with all parties involved. Talk about song choice, style and ask as many questions as you can so that you can make an informed decision.

Do your research

Use a platform like eGigger, where you can easily research bands and musicians. Each act has a profile page containing video, biography and vital statistics that make your job much easier. Read reviews and ratings from others who have hired the band; a great resource for finding out what kind of service a band provided for a past customer. Watching videos on YouTube is an essential way of doing further research and its also a very good idea to go and see some bands live in action before you choose.

Consider the unconventional

Would you rather have traditional wedding entertainment or are you interested in breaking the mould? You might want to add an unusual twist to your day by hiring a beatboxer, singing waiters or maybe even LED musicians! Either way, adding your own personal and fun twist is sure to surprise your guests and create another memorable spark for your day.

Create your perfect playlist

Spend a few hours with your partner and family thinking of all the songs you just have to hear at your reception. You dont want to get to the big day and request a song that your band or DJ hasnt prepared or doesnt know. Make sure all of those special songs are in your band's set list well before the date. Tip: Use Spotify to create your perfect playlist of party songs and romantic ballads.

Dont forget the ceremony

Beautiful music during your ceremony is a lovely touch that sometimes gets forgotten. Find a musician who will be able to create the perfect atmosphere when you walk down the aisle. Consider choosing a harpist, violinist or pianist who can create a soft version of your favourite song to really set the tone.
