Musical Entertainment Tips

Musical Entertainment Tips

Selecting the perfect musical entertainment for the biggest event in your life can be stressful. Here are five tips every bride-to-be should know when searching for the best “quality” musical entertainment.

Locating Entertainment

For optimal availability and the largest selections, start looking for your entertainment no later than 8-12 months before your wedding date. Some of the more popular DJs and bands in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Taos can book up early. Ask them for suggestions.

Types of Entertainment

Types of musical entertainment for your ceremony, reception or dance can range from bands, DJs and mariachis, to soloists, trio’s and string quartets. Entertainment agencies can assist you in locating your entire wedding music. You also need to check with your wedding or reception site to see what they allow.

Price and Contacts

No matter the type of entertainment, take the time to do research. In some cases, the cost of DJ’s can be the same as live bands. Once you have selected the perfect entertainment, you will need to complete an entertainment contract and be prepared to pay a deposit.

Experience

Ask your entertainment how much experience they have had with weddings. Request a biography, song list and sample music. Also, be open to suggestions from your entertainment as they may have recommendations you may not be aware of.

Music

Discuss selections of music for first dance and parent dances ahead of time. Request if CD music can be played during band breaks for continual music. Also consider the tone of the ceremony and reception to find music that fits.
