If you are anything like me, your wedding was such a big deal. I wanted to make sure every little detail was perfect. It is one of the biggest moments in your life, and you want to make sure it is memorable. If you have planned a wedding then you know what I mean when I say it can be very stressful with all of the different pieces having to come together in one evening. Something I wanted to make sure that I had at my wedding was dancing. Having a band at your wedding can be so much fun to get some fun music in the air and people dancing and interacting with eachother. Keep in mind your budget, for hiring a band can get pricey. Also, be sure to reserve the date with them in far enough advance so there’s no chance of double booking. The music can have such an affect on the overall feel of your wedding. It tends to be what guests are most likely to remember. You want them leaving your even raving about how great the music was and how much fun that they had.

Keep in mind your theme. If you are having a big, fancy affair you will want your music to somewhat match. Also consider keeping in mind your and your spouse’s personalities when choosing what music to play. Do genres that mean something to you individually and to you both as a couple. Another thing to keep in mind is to have good variety in the music. Perhaps you and your spouse have different musical tastes. Do something to incorporate both. Play fast and slow songs so that everyone can participate even if someone comes without a date. Keep in mind your audience, so perhaps play different eras of music as well to keep everybody enthralled. Typically bands tend to be a little more pricey. But they also bring with them a fun atmosphere that you just won’t get by having an Ipod plugged in.

They can ad lib and do some MC action while they play. Before you start interviewing bands, make sure the reception space is large enough for a band and allows all of their equipment. Some venues have rules about music so make sure you are all on the same page with what you are wanting to accomplish. Another benefit of having a band is the fact that it is like a performance. Yes it is a wedding reception, but it is kind of like a mini concert as well. Those who may not be that social might like sitting back and simply listening to the show. One last thing to keep in mind when finding the perfect band for your wedding is to make sure you see the band perform before hiring them. You want to make sure they sound good and interact well with crowds. NYC Wedding Bands are a perfect choice. The musicians have skill and a great repertoire. So bring some fun and excitement to your wedding and get a band! You will be so happy that you did.
