Things to Consider

The most important things to consider when considering what kind of entertainment you are wanting for your reception include what vibe you want to achieve, your entertainment budget, and any space limitations for your reception. Do you want a laid-back mood? A non-stop dance party? Will the reception be held in a small space or a giant ballroom? These are just a few things to consider that will help narrow down your choices.

Pros of a Live Band

Having a live band at any event, wedding, or reception creates a mood that is unique and memorable! Your guests will be able to enjoy the live music and will love the ambiance that only a live band can bring. Live bands bring a one-of-a-kind experience, can adjust to any kind of theme, and can amp up any dance floor! Although live bands tend to be more expensive and require a bit more space, they can make any reception an incredible experience for you and your guests!   

Pros of a DJ

DJs know how to bring life to any party – which is perfect for your wedding reception! DJs have the ability to play crowd-favorite songs and make suggestions for curating the perfect playlist! They require less space, are usually less expensive, and can provide more variety in the songs that they play. DJs understand the vibe of the event reception and know how to amp up the crowd. They can also play songs to make your guests want to slow dance the night away!
