Establish whether to have live music

This is the first thing to determine. To some people, music has a special place in their lives because it has had a significant part of their lives. It is natural for such people to want to have live music on their big day. On the other hand, one may be working on a tight budget for a small wedding.

Did they have live music and how did it make you feel? Two, ask recently wedded friends who had live music at their wedding on the effect of music at their event. All this will help you make an informed decision.

When to have live music

Weddings comprise of different points throughout the day such as the ceremony, reception, the dinner or the party. You have to decide on which of these points you want to have live music. You can also hire different musicians to ensure there’s music throughout the day.

Your budget

Being able to balance the wedding budget is a challenging task but the good thing is that you can find live musicians that suit your budget. For instance, if you are working on a budget that is under $200, you can have an instrumental soloist such as a pianist, violinist, bagpiper or cellist. Depending on your budget, you can have a single instrumentalist to several bands playing at different points of your day.

Type of music to have

Finally, you have to settle on the type of music you want played on your wedding. Music may differ depending on the point during the day. For instance, you may want a bridal entry song in the ceremony while have some cool instrumental music at the reception. The type of music will also determine whether you’ll hire a band or a DJ

Hiring wedding musicians for your wedding might be time-consuming which is why we advise you to entrust us with helping you find the perfect pied pipers for your event.
