Wedding Planning: Hiring a Wedding Band

Wedding planning can be a stressful experience, and making the right decisions for your big day can be a bit overwhelming and confusing at times. After the main big decisions like, venue, dress/suit, caterers and guest lists comes the wedding entertainment. From getting your guests moving to creating an awesome atmosphere, hiring a wedding band will be one of the best things you can do. Here is a list of reasons as to why hiring a wedding band North Wales for your wedding celebration might just be the best thing you do.

Can’t Beat Live Music

There is absolutely no denying that live music is miles better than hearing it come out of speakers (even if the speakers are amazing quality). The sheer presence of having a live band can instantly change the atmosphere of any venue or event including your wedding reception. Of course no one wants their wedding day to turn into a wild gig or rave, but it can enhance the natural excitement and party atmosphere and make your day really memorable for you and your guests.

Suits All Tastes

The best thing about hiring a wedding band is that there will definitely be a band to fit your preferred genre. From a pop covers band to a ceilidh band, it is guaranteed there will be a band that can fit into your wedding theme in some way. You might’ve been put off hiring a band due to your signature music taste, but there’ll be a band out there for you - proper live music will be better than a standard playlist.

Into 80’s music? Not a problem, there will be many 80s tribute bands out there who dedicate their music to the best artists of the era. Obsessed with one specific band? They’ll most definitely be a tribute band who will be happy to play at your wedding.

Crowd Pleaser

The best thing about bands is their ability to encourage your guests to come out of their shell and onto the dancefloor. Whether it be dancing, singing or even doing the conga, some of the best wedding bands can even get your grumpy grandpa up and dancing (even if he doesn’t know or understand the music)!

Most bands are able to read their crowd, so they will get a feel and understanding of what your guests want. They’ll know what to play and what not to play and can be as interactive as they feel necessary. If your close friends and relatives are quite rowdy, the band will surely play up to this and make your wedding night one to remember for a long time!


You don’t have to hire a wedding band just for your wedding reception. If your venue is flexible, most wedding bands certainly are too! As there are different band types, you can hire a band for another part of your wedding. Imagine walking down the aisle to a brass band playing your beautiful wedding march, or perhaps a harpist playing your recession?

Whether it’s for your ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast or evening reception you can find a wedding band to suit. Perhaps have a cellist playing at your drinks reception for a touch of elegance? It’s your wedding and certainly your way and wedding bands tend to be very versatile!

Book via a Reputable Agency

Yes, this could be consider an obvious one but there are so many benefits, namely quick communication, pre-vetted acts, full terms and conditions and contracting, all the necessary insurance certificates provided for your venue, backup in case of emergency, professional help and advice and lots of time saved searching though just one website rather than hundreds of individual ones.
