When a couple is getting married, there are some things that can’t be overlooked, such as the reception hall rental, rings, flowers, and bridal gown. However, there are some things that are sometimes left to the last minute, including hair, makeup artists, and most importantly – music!
In a world where everyone knows someone who is a musician or DJ, it is important for couples to do their research and know what they want so they can find what is best for them. A DJ or musician who specializes in weddings not only knows proper etiquette for receptions, but has the proper equipment, knowledge, and experience to be a great entertainer.
Music is essential to both the ceremony and the reception, though many people consider music for only the reception portion of the wedding. Truth be told, there are many creative ways that couples can incorporate their personal tastes and style into the ceremony by using music by creating moods so that their guests connect on a deeper emotional level with the event. Some people will have the groom’s selection of music playing as people are seated. Or perhaps the bride wants more than one processional song: one to build suspense of her arrival, and another for walking down the aisle. Choose something that’s meaningful for both of you.
Imagine a reception without music, or worse, music that you wouldn’t want to hear. This won’t offer the best experience for you and your guests. Your wedding day is among the most important in your life, and you don’t want it to be ruined by someone who is an amateur entertainer. Hiring someone because they are inexpensive can actually cost a couple more in the end. You may not get what you expected, or even worse, the entertainer might be a no show!
When investing in things like the dress, transportation, and food – don’t ignore the impact music can make on your special day.
