Of course, cost should always be considered when choosing any wedding vendor. But if we can offer only one essential tip, it would be this - don’t skimp on the budget for music because it sets the tone for the energy at your event. Music is a significant part of your wedding’s overall feeling, so if you hire a cheap DJ or maybe even a friend to play the music, you may be disappointed in the outcome. Make sure to evaluate the skills, personality, ability to connect with the audience, and the cost.
A live band is generally going to cost more because there are more people, equipment, etc. If you can only allow a small amount for music and the band you love doesn’t fit in that budget, consider hiring them for just the ceremony and reception, then have a DJ spin tunes at the reception. A DJ is great if you want a variety of music and genres played at your event.
A band can elevate the experience with unexpected twists on favorite tunes and solos. These are great things to consider when you’re thinking about the vibe of your big day. There is something so magical about live ensembles at weddings. Watching them sweep your guests off their feet while they dance your favorite pop songs or groove to the toe-tapping sounds of your favorite swing standards, the musicians in the Bellagala team have it all.
