Book the Best Atlanta-Area Wedding Bands at the Georgia Bridal Show
A wedding band brings a special element of entertainment your big day; the band tends to reach people more personally than a DJ, and adds a live music element to your event. However, with so many Georgia wedding bands available, it can be hard to know which band to choose. Take a look at a few tips to help you hone in on a final selection, then consider hiring one of the bands in our directory for your wedding.
Look for the Right Style
Different wedding bands have different styles, and you need to ensure the wedding band you select has the right style for your needs. A lot of people like a cover band that sings lots of dance floor friendly, sing-along tunes. Others prefer the elegance of a string quartet. Still others want a unique jazz sound for their wedding, or they take another approach altogether.
Before looking for a band, you should hone in on the kind of music you want for your wedding and try to find a band that matches that style. In some cases, you may need to hire more than one band. For instance, you may want a classical music group for the ceremony, a cover band for the reception, and a jazz pianist for the family brunch the next morning.
Listen to Georgia Wedding Bands
Ideally, you should never hire a wedding band unless you have listened to them first. Pay attention to the bands playing at your friends and relatives weddings. If you find a band you like, go to one of their upcoming events and see how they sound. At the very minimum, take time to listen to some demos on their website or watch some YouTube clips of their work.
Take the Venue into Account
Remember, the venue can have a huge impact on how the Atlanta wedding band sounds. If you have a small venue, a full-size band may be two overwhelming. You may want to opt for a couple of guitarists with recorded background music. On the opposite side of the spectrum, if you have a large venue or an outdoor space, a small group may get lost, and you may need to hire one of the larger Georgia wedding bands.
Go Over the Schedule
As they start to talk with different wedding bands, couples need to discuss the schedule. This helps to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that you get what you expect from the band you hire. Let the band know when you want music and make sure they can accommodate that request.
Also, talk about breaks. Wedding band musicians typically need to take regular breaks throughout the night. You need to make sure that works with your schedule, and you may also want to talk about what music you want played during the break. The band may have something, or you may need to dip into your own music collection.
