Tips for choosing your wedding band or musicians

 
Not only will live music help you and your guests to feel entertained during the day, but it's also a huge talking point and will be memorable for your guests for years to come. Here's a few things to consider when starting the search for your wedding band or musicians:
 
- Wedding style: It's worth thinking about the style of your wedding and what kind of music you're looking for to fit that bill. If you're planning a classy and elegant wedding, why not look into a harpist, pianist or string quartet? For a more fun and casual wedding day, you may want a band that play upbeat tunes with heaps of personality.
- Number of musicians: Live music comes in all shapes and sizes, so consider the style of your wedding and your budget to determine how many musicians will be suitable. Sure, a 10-piece band may make a very entertaining party, however a sololist could have just as much impact in a more intimate way.
- Venue size: If you've already chosen your venue, thinking about where musicians would best be placed and what sort of size the space is. For smaller venues, it may be best to have a soloist or duo if there are space limitations.
- Packages: Think about what parts of the day you'd like to have live music for. Many musicians have all day packages, or can offer DJ services as well. Some even offer an option where more musicians can join to form a larger band for the latter part of the day. This flexibility can save you some money and reduce wedding admin.
- Equipment: Most live music vendors will be self-sufficient in providing the equipment they use (PA system, microphones etc) but it is worth asking them just in case.
