When planning your wedding do not forget to decide if you want a Wedding Band or Wedding DJ for your musical entertainment on your big day to ensure everybody will have a good time at the wedding reception, and then booking within 6 to 18 months in advance and up, the time that is required when it comes to professional wedding DJ's and Bands.
The first step is decide whether a Band or a DJ and then know where to find them because who you choose for this special event will have the greatest degree of effect than any other factor, such as the selected location or venue, decorations or food served at the reception.
Musical entertainment can be found from a variety of sources, including your family and friends, but also in the yellow pages, printed ads, surfing the internet, or from other wedding vendors that happily will recommend to you Bands or DJ's if you ask for them, particularly if you believe that all of them are just the same.
Wedding Bands and DJ's have their own unique style, level of professionalism and versatility, and most of the times is not the same hire to just a DJ or Band that perform at different types of events, hire people specialized in weddings, with performing experience and a large repertory to suit everybody's tastes.
Once you decide whether you want Bands or DJ's, contact them and prompt return of your phone calls or emails, because a person who does not reply to your messages or call you back within 24 hours probably is not interested in caring for you, your ideas, interests or the overall details of your event, but do not expect either a reply within minutes or an hour because they may be performing at a wedding.
The willingness to meet with you and present their service and material is as important as it could be with a long time friend who probably will not make you wait or ignore you, particularly in the biggest event of your life where the success of the wedding reception depends on the musical entertainment.
Price, experience and repertory are as important as choosing the person who makes you feel right, because there is nothing worse in the world than hiring someone that does not give you feedback or to whom you will not feel comfortable in such an important day as your wedding day.
