The formalities and legalities of a wedding make up the basics of the actual marriage ceremony or service. And if that’s all there is to your wedding day, it will probably turn out to be a rather forgettable occasion. However, you can transform a potentially dull wedding event into a memorable one simply by adding a few ingredients to the reception. Flower arrangements, room decor, table centerpieces, computerized mood lighting, and of course food items, can all add to the splendor of the occasion. But music, on the other hand, is capable of turning the party into something magical and memorable.
Whether or not the wedding is formal or informal, traditional or unique, the ideal music can create a mood or feeling of exhilaration like very few other things. Wedding ceremonies without music might have family and friends asking themselves “when is the wedding service going to end?” instead of “isn’t this wonderful?” The perfect music will add drama and romance to the occasion, keeping family and friends fully engaged and interested.
However, putting the ceremony aside, it’s always the wedding reception music that can truly make the day a memorable one. Without music entertainment, a lot of guests will likely be running toward the exit as soon as they’ve eaten all the food their stomachs can hold, unless there is no food; in which case they’ll be side-stepping towards the door once they see that the happy couple won’t notice them walking out.
The simplest way to spice up a wedding event is to give your invited guests some music, ideally live. Clearly, you have the option to use a DJ to provide music, but live music never fails to add so much more to the event than prerecorded music ever could. Bringing in a wedding guitarist, stringed trio, or a live wedding cover band is going to make the occasion a whole lot more enjoyable for everybody involved, but a live dance band will provide thrills that no other form of entertainment can.
Wedding crowds absolutely love to dance, so hiring a wedding dance band that delivers one popular dance hit after another will have the invited guests out on the dance floor until they’re kicked out. If you’d like your guests to be telling you how marvelous your wedding reception was for weeks or months after the party is over, a live band is probably your only option. It’s not very often that the decorations or food is what people remember. But they always remember the entertainment.
Recorded music is certainly more cost-effective. However if you want your wedding event to be as wonderful as you’ve always imagined it would be, you should consider spending a little more for live music artists if needed. And if your budget is modest, it is usually a good idea to cut back on the forgettable items, like flowers or decorations, so that you can free up more money to spend on the music entertainment. Weddings only occur once in a lifetime, at least that’s the dream for most people, so making it the greatest experience of your life means hiring live music for the wedding ceremony and reception party. Don’t ever be satisfied with less.
