Having a Band versus DJ is one of the biggest wedding debates. The music is what brings together the wedding reception. It gets people excited and energetic and ready to dance! Getting people out of their seats and onto the dance floor will instantly make your reception more entertaining and fun for your guests. Not to mention, the DJ or Band will be creating those special father/daughter and mother/son dances. Essentially the music is what can make or break a wedding reception.

First up the DJ!

Whichever option you choose you should definitely see your artist(s) play in a different venue before booking them.  That way if you are choosing between a DJ or a live band you can see them both and make the best decision for you!
