Pros

  • They provide more atmosphere
  • Encourage people to dance
  • Can be more personable & interactive
  • You can get a band that suits your style and music taste

Cons

  • May not be able to take requests or may be difficult to negotiate learning a new song
  • Can have one sound so may have difficulty pulling off different genres
  • Takes up more space & time to set up
  • More people to feed
  • Can be more expensive- if you want a good one

How do I decide?????

    • Go for what suits your ideals, your taste and your budget
    • Go and listen to both to see the difference
    • Choose a band or dj that specialises in weddings
    • Before booking listen to said band or dj perform and read their reviews
    • Think about your space- is it too small and closed in for a band?
    • and your guests- what would suit them? You do want them to get up and dance!
    • Look for someone with charimsa, a sense of humor- as they will sometimes act as the mc
