Music & Entertainment

When it comes time to plan your ceremony music and reception entertainment, the age-old question remains – wedding band or DJ? Oftentimes, brides and grooms use a bit of both. They may hire a string quartet or soloist to perform during the wedding ceremony, an acoustic guitarist to play romantic songs during the cocktail hour, a live band or orchestra for the reception, and a popular DJ for the after-party.

Whether you choose a wedding band or a DJ, it’s important to provide them with a list of must-have songs (for your first dance, father-daughter dance, mother-son dance, and more), as well as those tunes that you and your beloved do not want played at your event. Do you like country music or EDM? Prefer the classic love songs or Frank Sinatra-inspired sounds? A talented wedding musician will be able to take this list of likes and dislikes and construct a set of your favorite songs intermingled with tried and true wedding music that will keep your loved ones entertained all night long.
