Years from now, what are people going to remember from your wedding reception? They won’t be able to recall the type of flowers in the centerpieces or the color of your tablecloths. And they may or may not remember the food, but they will definitely remember the entertainment. Wedding reception entertainment can make or break the entire party atmosphere. It’s important to find a form of entertainment that fits your event, your personality, and your desires. Continue reading for some tips.
LET'S GET STARTED
Do you want music during the meal? Tasteful, easy-listening music played during a meal can create the perfect atmosphere for making your reception a memorable event. If you want dinner music, be sure to select the appropriate group. Remember, dinner music and high-energy dance music are not the same. Most wedding bands will be able to provide dinner music, as well as dance music, by using a small segment of the full band (usually, keyboard or guitar, bass, drums and one horn). Speak with the band leader to be sure. If your wedding band solely performs high-energy dance music, consider hiring a separate group (trio or quartet) to provide reception/dinner music, beginning with the arrival of your guests and continuing through dinner (usually two hours). Dinner music is typically performed by a small, instrumental group – no vocalist.
