Everything You Need To Know About Including LIVE Music On Your Wedding Day

Here we're breaking down all the "good" and the “good-to-knows” about booking live music for your event, so you’ll only be left with good surprises on your big day!



Here’s what makes live music an indispensable part of your day--


Adaptability

Each moment of your ceremony is special and the last thing you want is for the entire thing to get clunky because of less-than-smooth transitions between recordings. Musicians who have experience playing dozens of weddings can read each moment and adjust the music to you so transitions are in real-time --without missing a beat!


Atmosphere

Your wedding doesn’t happen every day, and neither does live music. Real live musicians are a one-of-a-kind special happening and immediately communicate the classiness of an event and the specialness of the occasion.


No Technical Difficulties

No one likes awkward silences! Especially during a ceremony. Creating an atmosphere for your day with sound that doesn’t rely on a power outlet definitely gives you that extra little peace of mind.


And here’s a couple more things you need to know about having live music on your wedding day--


Shelter

Musicians are pretty easy going but sometimes instruments are not! Make sure you chat with your musicians to see if they need any sun/weather protection to protect their instruments and perform at their best!


New Repertoire

Most musicians love to learn new music, but finding/arranging, and learning music can take a team weeks to prepare! Make sure you chat with your musicians to see what their policy is on learning new songs, and how much time they need to prepare the arrangements.


Bottom Line

If having a unique live music experience is important to you on your wedding day, then chatting with musicians to see how they can fit your vision is an important step! If you’re looking for more wedding planning inspiration and music insight, jump a call to speak with one of our wedding music experts and we’d be happy to share with you everything you need to plan your day :)
