Music @ Your Wedding

Looking for ways to save money on your music budget?
More than likely you will have ceremony music and reception music. The amount of your music budget will determine if the music will elegant and simple or full blown orchestrated!

Ceremony music is played during the ceremony, which includes but not limited to: prelude, processional, ceremony, recessional, and postlude. Would you like to hire a vocalist or soloist? Typically rates range from $50 per hour to $400 per hour (wedspace.com). 

Ceremony Music Money Saving Tips:
  • Hire talented students from a respected music school.
  • Ask a friend to sign or play at your ceremony
  • As your DJ to play pre-recorded music at your ceremony
Keep in mind that music will be a major part of your reception, so you should plan carefully. Music will help create the atmosphere of your wedding. When selecting music, keep in mind the age and preferences of your guests.

Reception Music Money Saving Tips:
  • Instead of hiring a separate group, ask your wedding band to include a cocktail-hour performance by members of the band in their package.
  • Save hundreds by booking a DJ for dancing instead of a live band.
  • Choose a top quality 5-to 7-piece band with a great bandleader.
  • Stay local. If a band travels more than an hour, that will increase your costs.
  • A singer who also plays an instrument will save you money.
