Did you know that the celebration part of your wedding is just as crucial as the ceremony itself? You want your guests to have amazing memories of your big day. That’s why you need to deliver the best entertainment choice that will keep you and your guests engaged. Whether it’s a DJ, live music band or comedy act – the choice is yours and yours alone.
It’s been a difficult time for everyone, but we’re all looking forward to emerging from our long COVID-19 hibernation and enjoying live entertainment again from the 21st of June.
With this in mind, here are some tips to help you choose the best entertainment for your wedding.
Decide what you want!
The first thing you need to do before researching entertainment choices is to decide what you want. Do you want to book a band, DJ or comedian? Maybe you want to book all three. It is really up to you.
For example, if you love classical music and jazz, you will probably want to pick a live band. If you also know that your friends love comedy, you may decide to settle on a comedian as well as a live band to meet everyone’s needs. After all, you want everyone to have a good time on your wedding day.
Use Social Media in the Research Phase
There are so many quick ways you can research your entertainment choice. All you need is a working internet connection and access to social media! Most DJs, musicians, and comedians post videos of their performance on social media channels such as YouTube, Instagram and Facebook, so it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.
You can also use hashtags to search for an entertainment style you like. When you find a page you like, review the comments under each post. This is where you are more likely to find real-life testimonials. People who have seen live performances will leave their reviews in the comment section. Don’t just rely on reviews on a DJ’s website – social media comments are even more valuable than this.
- Do they have a backup plan?
- Do they bring their own equipment?
- What if one of the musical instruments breaks?
- How many people are on their team?
- Will they be able to get a replacement?
You can determine the answer to the last question by asking them how they solved a crisis like this in the past.
The best performers get booked up fast, so try to sort it out several months before your wedding day. You don’t want a situation where you have to choose a DJ or music band that is not even in your top five choices.
Choosing the best entertainment for your wedding day can be a lengthy process. Thankfully, you have many tools at your disposal to help you make the right decision. Good luck and have fun!
