Does Your Venue Allow Live Music?
This is one of the first things you should check before you book a live band for a wedding. You may find there are noise limitations in place or restrictions that mean the venue isn’t allowed to play live music. On the other hand, you could discover the venue has a dedicated space for live bands.
Will There Be Enough Space?
This depends on the size of your venue, the number of guests on the guestlist, and the size of the band. Don’t forget, your band won’t be standing and playing in one place – unless you hire a seated orchestra, of course. It’s best to factor in room for the band to move around.
Is There Power For Your Live Band?
This is an especially important question to ask if you’re planning an outdoor wedding. Before you book a live band for a wedding, you need to ensure they will be able to set up and play all of their instruments without any issues.
When Will You Feed The Band?
Many bands expect some food and drink throughout the night – and there are several ways you can plan for this. You can either pay for them to have some of the food you are serving your guests, or tell the venue to keep them fed and watered before paying the bill at the end of the night.
Learning everything there is to consider when booking a live band for a wedding can make the whole experience a lot less stressful. Now, it’s time to grab your dancing shoes and get ready for their performance.
