Bringing Music Into Your Big Day

Hire A Live Band Or Musician

Most people tend to go down the route of having a DJ play their wedding music, however if you’re a lover of music you’ll know that nothing sounds as good as hearing it played live. There are live bands that actually specialise in weddings who ill know the etiquette involved and have plenty of experience in playing on people’s most special days. Alternatively, you could hire a local band that you love, or if you have loved ones that are excellent singers or musicians you could ask them to play. It sets an incredible atmosphere, makes for great wedding entertainment and is a little bit different too.

  4. My husband and I picked out songs we each shared with the other during our ceremony. We had our close friends perform the songs. It was a surprise to both of us. It was so fun to not know until our wedding day what song he picked for me and vise versa.

  9. A live band would be nice, or maybe a wedding singer. But they can be really expensive though.If you have a friend who has a great voice, that would also be an option.
