How to work with your wedding band
End your wedding with a high note by working with your band to create the perfect mood for the reception
The tough part of wedding planning is done: you’ve sat through the demo CDs and taken stock of your choices, and you’ve finally picked your wedding band. Or is it?
Finding and hiring the band is hard work, but making sure that they strike just the right chord (sorry, couldn’t resist) is critical. The day is going to be one to remember, but don’t make it so because the music didn’t match the mood. Often overlooked in wedding planning, thinking through and communicating what music you two tend to like, the ambiance you want for the reception, and, of course, what’s likely to get your guests movin’ and groovin’. After all, great entertainment is the difference between your wedding being a massive hit and an expensive dinner party (because guests might just leave early).
