10 Things To Think About When Hiring Wedding Entertainment
1. On your wedding day, you can’t hide bad entertainment.
2. Professional-grade MCs are rare and precious, and are the most important part of your wedding day entertainment.
3. Great entertainment will never be found "cheap". Proven professionals know what they are worth.
4. There is nothing better than a great wedding band, but you have to know how to find them.
5. There are a million and one DJs, but a great wedding DJ is comparatively rare.
6. A great DJ is better than a good band.
7. Business licenses, liability insurance and a backup plan are a must - and worth their weight in peace-of-mind!
8. Hire ceremony musicians with care, as they are under a sonic microscope when they are performing.
9. Regardless of how you will handle ceremony music, you will most likely need ceremony P.A. service so your guests will hear the officiant!
10. Don't hire entertainers who look at your wedding as just another "gig".
11. (Did I say 10?) Be creative and daring! Wow your guests with a night they'll never forget! And remember, chair covers will not be the factor that produces that result - your entertainment WILL.
