Sometimes choosing your wedding entertainment can be as much of a challenge as choosing your partner; you want them to reflect your personality but also to appeal to your guests. The sign of a great wedding is when everyone is up on their feet giving it socks on the dance floor. Many people assume that a band that might appeal to your eighty year old Grandfather couldn’t possibly appeal to your pop princess niece, but those people are wrong. The best wedding bands understand the importance of diversity and we have created our top five tips to ensure you find a band that will bring the house down on your big day.
1. Consider the size of your venue
When selecting your wedding band, consider the layout of your wedding reception. For smaller venues consider a three piece band such as The Funky Buskers. This popular wedding band emphasises perfect male vocal harmonies, and with an acoustic style set up can provide the perfect ambiance for you wedding.
Similarly, a three or four piece band such as The Switch would work in a larger, as well as smaller venue and would easily fit their sound and band members to the location. The Switch are a multi instrumental group featuring highly established male musicians.
2. Ensure the band has a large selection of songs
When selecting your wedding band, it is important to ensure they have a varied repertoire of songs. All good wedding bands will have a mix of different genres of music to please everyone from currents to classics. For example popular wedding band The Firm offer variety and versatility by having over 170 songs on their set list to keep your guests going all night.
3. Themed Wedding?
Why not choose a particular style of music for your big day? Genres such as Swing, Jazz and Latin are very popular for themed weddings. The Speakeasy Band are one of Ireland’s most in demand weddings bands and they play both classics and current songs in a truly mesmerising Swing style.
Or if Jazz is more your style, the amazing Nouvelle Club specialise in playing live reworked music just like the sound of Nouvelle Vague, classic songs, modern twists and contemporary music with a slightly French and Jazzy feel.
4. Be original
Invite something completely unique to your wedding party to amaze your guests. Make your wedding the talking point of the year and have the time of your life watching your party goers be awe-stricken by visually stunning Digital Fire Art and Robots for Hire, integrating the brides and grooms images or names into the show!
5. Offload your worry
You have enough to worry about on your wedding day, deal with a reputable entertainment agency who can handle the booking, ensure the arrangements match your expectations and can provide a backup for you if anything goes wrong. This will leave you with more spare time to dedicate to other tasks.
