Selecting the perfect musical entertainment for the biggest event in your life can be stressful. If you don’t get it right, your wedding could turn out to be a snooze fest and we certainly do not want that. It’s why we’ve built an entertainment company that caters to couples like you here at Skyline Drive Orchestra. 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. Ask for suggestions from friends and family. But if you’re in the tri state area, just come to us at Skyline Drive Orchestra. We’ve got you covered.
- Types of Entertainment
Types of musical entertainment for your ceremony, reception or dance can range from bands to mariachis, 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. Once you have selected the perfect entertainment, you will need to complete an entertainment contract and be prepared to pay a deposit. It’s usually a very stress-free experience if you work with us.
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. Here at JPL Entertainment, we’ve had band members who have toured with Michael Jackson, Shakira, Bon Jovi and lots of other renowned artists. You won’t go wrong with us.
Discuss selections of music for first dance and parent dances ahead of time. Request if music can be played during band breaks for continual music. Also consider the tone of the ceremony and reception to find music that fits.
Here at Skyline Drive Orchestra, we’re great at handling your wedding entertainment and keeping you and your guests happy for the duration of your wedding. Have you hired a band for your wedding yet? Why not give us a call today?
