You can almost see the finish line. The end of your wedding planning is almost there, all that is left is deciding on the finishing touches. Sending out a notice for guests, paying off the vendor, figuring out the details of the marriage license and of course, choosing the best wedding band for the two of you, as well as, your guests. Doing this can be difficult as you’ll want a group that fits the theme of your wedding, can keep people entertained and is experienced.

Word of Mouth
Honestly, one of the best ways to find an artist or band for your wedding is to ask your married friends where they found theirs. If you were invited to their wedding, think back and see if you can’t form an opinion of the band that they had. If you can’t remember, that might be something to keep in mind. If you cringe at the thought, definitely make note. However, if you recall lots of dancing, fun and well paced music throughout the entirety of the event, see if you can’t find a contact for the group from your friend. Read up on any comments you can find about them as well. A long list of happy couples will ensure that you’re making the right choice.
Setting the Theme
Knowing the theme of your wedding is very important, as a band can change this drastically. You’ll also want to be sure that you’re hiring an appropriate artists for your demographic. Listening to samples of the bands music, or covers, will give you a concrete idea of what they can offer and how they’ll add to the occasion in a good way. One of the biggest mistakes that can be made is paying for a group that isn’t flexible. Having clear instructions for the band is also important. Let them know when they should play and what type of music should be played during specific times. Clear communications will make everything easier and more fun.
Of course there are many other factors to think about when searching for musicians for your wedding day but these two are the biggest. You want to have chemistry with the artists and be sure to have an area where guests can tip them. At the end of the day, this is a partnership, and if you want to make sure that your artists will do everything they can to bring out the best in the atmosphere, you’ll need to work together. After you’ve found, spoken to and booked a band, the hardest parts are over. You can finally take a breath of relief.
