If you have ever worked closely with a bride or groom for their wedding or even someone trying to organise a big event, then you have a pretty good idea of just how stressful planning a party can get. There are so many things you need to get right. The right dress code, the right catering service, the right baker and of course, the right entertainment. Music is key in any wedding since it is the indelible mark that will be left on your guests’ minds. For most people, the choice is usually between a live band or hiring a DJ. However, before you make this vital choice, you need to look at the pros and cons of both the band and the DJ.
Let us first look at bands since they are the 'old school' choice for many, so to speak. Wedding bands are the options our parents and grandparents went with and as they say old is gold. But, like everything in the world, there are the pros and cons associated with having a live music band. Let us first look at the pros.
On the flip-side:
DJs are what most people go for nowadays mostly because it is easy to get one and even see one in action perhaps in another wedding or corporate event. Let us look at the advantages of a wedding DJ.
For many couples, the wedding band versus DJ conversation is one of the major hurdles you need to go over before you finally have the perfect wedding. However, apart from the pros and cons, you need to be sure that you come to an understanding so that whatever you choose will be able to represent both of you and is also within your budget. Keep in mind that every ceremony is uniquely different and if you go with a band that you saw before, you should know that you will not have an entertainment set exactly like the one you saw since your music choice determines everything.
