A wedding is one of those milestones that are meant to never be forgotten – by the newlyweds and by the guests who have been privileged to witness their union. Most weddings and receptions are very carefully planned, down to the last detail, to make sure that everything is perfect. There are many decisions, big and small, to make along the wedding planning process. One of the biggest decisions to be made is how the couple intends to handle the music.
Music is everything for a wedding and a reception. It sets the mood. And when you’re wedding planning, you’ve got options – DJs, digital playlists, and wedding bands. In this article, we’ll give you three very compelling reasons to book a wedding band for your celebration of love and unity.
Why Wedding Bands?
Many people mistakenly see wedding bands as an unnecessarily lavish expense that doesn’t do all that much to enhance a wedding and/or reception. But those people couldn’t be more wrong. In reality, a wedding band can take a nice wedding day and turn it into an unforgettable live musical event!
Personalized Set Lists
Do you and your soon-to-be spouse have a song that you consider “your song?” A song that you would love to have played at your wedding or reception but perhaps you’d like it performed in a different style? A wedding band can take your favorite hard rock jam and dial it down to play in a way that nobody’s ever heard before. How about an instrumental-only version of your song? If you have a very specific desire in mind for any type of variation, a wedding band can make it happen!
Treat Your Guests
Who doesn’t love the idea of a personal concert, just for them? A live band performance at your wedding treats your guests to exactly that. The performers know how to read a room and create the vibe that you want to invoke, from slow dances to full-on dance floor exuberance. You and your guests will never forget the thrill of a live performance, just like nobody forgets a great concert at an arena or ballroom.
Choose the Perfect Band
Not all wedding bands are traditional, 4-piece ensembles. You have a world of options in front of you when you decide to take this route. These options range from single performers with nothing but their voices and an instrument to large brass bands that will make your guests all want to do the swing. Your options are only limited by your imagination, your budget, and the size of your venue!
Wedding bands provide a musical experience unlike any other. With these three benefits in mind, you can make the best decision as you move forward with your wedding planning.
