Do You Know How to Plan for Your Wedding Entertainment?

Sep 1, 2007
One of the most difficult parts in your wedding planning is the wedding entertainment. In fact, you should not overlook this part since a good wedding entertainment can on one hand hit up the atmosphere of your reception and on the other hand make your guests not feeling bored.

There are may different ways to entertain your guests. You can prepare some games for the guest to play in the reception. A lucky draw can also be a good idea. Wedding slide show is also considered a trendy entertainment in a wedding. You may also prepare some music, hire a live band or DJ so that you can make your guests stand up and dance.

In fact, hiring a live band or DJ is never a simple task. It is even more difficult than ordering your wedding gown. For your wedding gown, you can try thousands of times and you can finally find your perfect choice. However, you will never know how a live band or DJ perform until your big day. As a result, you have to spend some time to research so that you can have an idea of how well a live band or DJ can perform

You can firstly search on the internet. As I always suggest, Google and Yahoo are our best friends when we are searching on the web. You do not need to search for your local band or DJ right the way. Instead you can search for such people all over the world to see what these people normally offer. You can take some time to listen to the online demos so that you can compare different vendors.

After you get a rough idea what these people normally offer, you can start searching for your local vendor. You can firstly have a brief search on the internet. Again, you should try to listen to the online demos in order to compare the services. If a particular band or DJ does not provide online demos on the website, you should not be shy to send emails to ask for such demos. You should always bear in mind that you are contacting the vendor for demos only. Asking for demos does not necessarily mean hiring the band or DJ. You should never make any decision before listening to the demos.

You can make a shortlist of the bands and DJs after you have listened all the demos. You will certainly start contacting them. You will ask for their schedules and also a quotation first. If you think the prices are acceptable, you can ask if live demos can be arranged. Some of these vendors will provide live demos with a small fee and it is worth spending this small amount of money to arrange a live demos.

When you have made up your mind, you should place your order right the way. You will need to go through the whole sourcing process again if the one your plan to hired is booked on your big day by the others. Before you sign the contract, you should ask for every detail such as breaks between each performance section so that there will be no ambiguity at all.
