One of the most important elements of your wedding festivities will undoubtedly be the music for your reception. As you start your search for the right band or DJ, a variety of issues will need to be considered. For starters, you will be deciding between the two most popular forms of musical entertainment a live band or a disc jockey. While a band is usually the more expensive of the two, a professional DJ can also cost quite a bit, especially during the most popular wedding months, from April to July.

If you are having an extremely formal or large wedding, you may want to consider a live band in keeping with the size and tone of the wedding. Any reception, however, can be organized beautifully with a professional DJ who knows the tastes of the guests, the wedding party, and follows the preference of the bride and groom. To help you make the right choices, consider some of these questions.

Will there be dancing? If so, what are the ages and music preferences of the guests? If your reception will primarily include slow dancing, and you prefer something more intimate and elegant, consider a smaller size band. However, if you are more interested in having a wide selection of dance music for your reception, a DJ may be a better choice in that they have a greater selection available.

Do you want your guests to have the option of making requests for songs or music styles? If your guests enjoy making requests for sentimental or inside joke songs, go with a DJ. A band will have a limited play list and may not be able to honor requests.

Who will be the emcee? When the bridal party enters the reception and for the toasts, the emcee will need to speak. Meet with several DJs and bandleaders to learn a bit about them and gauge whether their personality is appropriate for your reception.

Whether you choose a band or DJ, always check references and ask questions. Make sure you have a guarantee and contract in writing so unpleasant surprises the day of the reception pop up.

DJs are usually trained professionals who take their role at parties and wedding receptions very seriously. This is often their only means of income and they want to make sure you have the best time of your life. After all, when you are pleased with their services, you will tell other people, which in turn increase the DJs business.

Bands can be a little tricky in that most bands playing for wedding receptions fall into one of two categories. They are either a group of friends who are starting small with the hopes of one-day making it big, or they are a group of professionals or friends who play together for the pure enjoyment of music and entertainment. While one is no better over the other, they each come with a different mentality. Regardless of the situation, you want a mature band, not necessarily in number of years together, but in level of professionalism.
