The Wedding Band vs. the Wedding DJ

When it’s time for your special day, you’re going to want the perfect music for your reception. The two popular choices are to either hire a DJ for your wedding or hire a band. So which is the better choice for your wedding day? Here’s some things to consider.

Reliability

When you’re planning your wedding, you have a ton of things to coordinate, and the last thing you want to hear is that part of your wedding plan fell through. With a wedding band, there are more people to account for, and more things can go wrong. A member might get sick, forget to learn all of the songs, or not show up on time. If you hire a DJ, you only have to worry about one person showing up. You also eliminate the worry that the songs won’t be played correctly, since the DJ isn’t performing the music himself. This can take a lot of stress away from planning your special day.

Pricing

Price is another consideration. You’re willing to pay for quality, but also have a budget to keep. If you’re hiring a wedding band, you have to pay for about 5 players to come and perform. These fees can add up. If you’re paying for a DJ, you only have to pay for one person and his equipment. Some wedding bands will even charge you to learn the songs that you want them to play. If you hire one of our DJs , you avoid a lot of the extra costs associated in music at your reception.

Atmosphere

A really important consideration is the atmosphere that the music is going to provide for your wedding. If the presence that the musician provides isn’t right, it doesn’t matter what songs are being played! When you hire a wedding band, they can provide some entertainment, but there are also some problems. For many venues, having a band play will be too loud, making it tough for the guests to socialize. They also can’t provide much else in terms of entertainment. Our wedding DJs will ensure that they’re playing the songs that you want, to create the right atmosphere, and have other enhancements to make the event even better, like lightscaping and other special effects to create fog, projections, and snow!

Wedding Entertainment is a huge factor to consider in the wedding planning process and should be given due consideration sooner rather than later! Because admit it - more often than not, your guests will most likely not be able to recall the theme of your wedding cake or your beautiful centerpieces, but they will remember gettin' down and having a ball with all the new friends they've made. Also, you’ll never forget seeing all of the most important people in your world dancing together as if they've known each other forever.
