Live Wedding Bands
There is nothing that can make a wedding more exciting than a live band. A band will make your wedding more exciting and bring a classy vibe. Here are our pros and cons to hiring a live band:
Pros: Like we mentioned, nothing can make your wedding more exciting. Wedding guests love live music, that’s a fact! Every wedding band is different. From jazz bands to country bands your wedding can be however you like. Live love songs are romantic.
Cons: The biggest con to hiring a live band is price. Live bands are usually more expensive than DJ’s. The only other con we can think of is variety. Live bands have a list of songs that they have learned and you have to choose from those songs.
We have seen dozens of wedding DJ’s bring life to weddings that desperately needed it. A talented DJ can make a wedding fun and memorable.
Pros: Hiring a wedding DJ is usually less expensive than hiring a live band. Wedding DJ’s have an endless list of songs to choose from; they can play a variety of different types of music.
Cons: It’s simple… Live music is hard to beat.
Live bands and DJ’s have their pros and cons but both are great options. Do your best to find a band or DJ that suits your style. If you can do this, your wedding guests will see your exciting personality.
