Volume of Live Music in Your Wedding

Mar 17, 2008
The entertainment in your wedding is very important. Your guest may not remember what they have eaten in your reception. But they will certainly remember the entertainment. To this end you may consider hiring a band playing live music in your reception.

When you have music in your wedding, you have to consider this. You need the music to heat the atmosphere of the reception and encourage your guests to stand up and dance. On the other hand, the music should never become noisy since some guest may choose to sit and have conversations with one another.

In fact, the band you hire should make sure that the sound level of the music will be an optimal one. In most cases you will have amplifiers on the stage. To this end your guests will hear both the sound directly from the instruments and the sound from the amplifiers. It will be a mess if there cannot be a balance. Since you are not experts in the field of sound engineering, it is the obligation of the live band to take care of it. They should have the experience to get a balance of it. Of course you may also discuss with them if you have any special requirements.

The reception venue also plays a crucial role when the volume of the live music is concerned. As a matter of fact a lot of venues are not that good in terms of acoustical design. When designing the venue, the designer has to consider the material and geometry. Generally, absorptive materials such as carpet will make the volume of music lower. It also makes it easier to control the sound level of the music. On the contrary, reflective materials such as glass and wood will reflect the sound. And the sound level will be a lot more difficult to control.

As mentioned, the geometry of your wedding reception venue is also very important when the sound level of your wedding live music is concerned. If it is of poor geometry, it will make the sound level louder in some spots of the venue and on the other hand you may not be able to hear the sound in other spots. You should pay extra attention to these factors when you are choosing your wedding reception venue.

No matter you are choosing the venue or the band, you should always ask questions if you have any doubt. They should be able to help with their professional advices and this will ensure that you can provide excellent entertainment to your guest in your reception!
