The formalities of a wedding form the gist of the wedding service. And without adding a few items, a wedding ceremony can be quite a lifeless affair. Then again, adding some ingredients to ceremony can turn a lackluster wedding day into a memorable one. Bouquets, venue decor, centerpieces, mood lighting, and food can all enhance the splendor of the occasion, but music can turn it into something magical.

Whether or not the marriage ceremony is formal or casual, traditional or completely unique, the appropriate music creates an atmosphere of enthusiasm like nothing else. Marriage ceremonies with no music may have friends and family thinking “when is this marriage ceremony going to end?” Good music brings romance to the event, keeping guests intrigued and focused.

However, it’s the wedding reception music that can truly make the day unforgettable. Without any music, many guests will probably be running toward the exit after they’ve eaten some food, unless of course there isn’t any food; and in that case they’ll be maneuvering to the exit once they feel the happy couple won’t see them walking out.

The ultimate way to brighten up a wedding celebration is to offer your family and friends some music, and when possible, live. Needless to say, you have the choice to bring in a DJ to provide music, however live music never fails to add more to the event than recorded music. And you usually don’t want a band that plays original music instead of popular dance hits. Original bands have their place and are very exciting, just not for a wedding reception. Using a guitarist, string quartet, or a live wedding party band will make the event so much more enjoyable for all involved, however a live music band can provide enjoyment like very little else.

Wedding guests love to dance, so booking a wedding music band that plays one high energy song after the other is going to keep the guests dancing on the dance floor all night long. When you want your family and friends to be telling you how great your wedding was for weeks or months to come, a live band is the solution. It’s not very often the decor or food that people remember, it’s the entertainment.

Playing recorded music is without a doubt less costly, but if you would like the day to be as outstanding as it can possibly be, you should consider spending a touch more for live musicians. And when your budget is minimal, it may be better to spend less on the less important things, so you can invest more on the music entertainment. Wedding days only happen once in a person’s lifetime, at least that’s the dream, so making certain it’s the very best time in your life means adding live music to the wedding ceremony and reception party. You don’t have to settle for less.
