Wedding Planning Guide - Ceremony Music Tips & Tricks
"How to hire live music band, string quartet or piano ensemble for my wedding"
When to book musicians for my wedding ceremony or reception?
Book early – it is a good idea to start your search 9-12 months before the wedding day. Professional, well established bands and ensembles usually book up to two years in advance.
How to find a top quality professional ensemble or band for my wedding ceremony?
The best place to book musicians IS the web these days. You will find a number of useful resources on the internet – so, do not panic and start your selection process. Great talent search sites – gigmasters.com, weddingwire.com, gigsalad.com. These sites offer a wide variety of different bands, ensembles and soloists. Many of them are well established and have extensive experience in the entertainment business. Read the bands’ past customer reviews, listen to their music samples and watch their videos online. After you get the initial impression and found an entertainer you like - e-mail or call the vendor to make an inquiry about their rates and availability. Do not hesitate to ask about “fine print” - if there are any booking fees or any other hidden fees included in the contract. Do not forget to ask if there are any special offers or promotions they currently run...
