Check out this post and get some great tips…How to Hire Wedding Entertainment

posted in: Uncategorized

You’ve got the perfect dress, you’ve got the perfect venue, everything is looking good for your big day..

But are looks the most important thing on your wedding day?

Although its important to have a great look at your wedding, its certainly not what your main focus should be on?

Think back to some of the weddings you have attended, and try and remember the best ones..

My guess is the best weddings you’ve attended had great entertainment, and offered something a little different than the rest.

Can you remember the place cards, or the favors…Probably not..

However, i bet you can remember dancing all night to a great band, or being surprised during the wedding breakfast when the toastmaster starting singing!!

Its the feel of the wedding that matters, and the atmosphere. Having a great atmosphere at your wedding, where people are relaxed and enjoying themselves is what will make the difference and give you and your guests some great memories.

Getting the right entertainment for you.

When choosing entertainment for you big there are a few things that you need to take into account.

Here are my top tips to choosing the perfect entertainment:

TIP 1. Booking Direct or using an agent?

It’s much better to deal with the artist direct rather than booking through an agent or company.

Reasons why

You can get to know your artist
You will be cutting out the middleman
You will get a better picture of what they do
You will get a better more personal service including private consultations etc
You will build up a nice relationship before the event, ensuring a relaxed atmosphere on the day.

TIP 2. Homework

If you have an artist in mind do some homework on them. Ask other suppliers or friends if they have seen them perform and get their feedback.

Google them.

Check the Internet, most artists have a website that will give details on their service, quite often a naf website can mean a not so great artist.

TIP 3. Website.

What to look for on their site?

Demo music is a must so you can hear how they sound.
Video clips are also good so you can see the act performing

Look for feedback or testimonials from past clients, this is the service history of the act. Would you buy a car without service history? If you do you risk the car not being reliable, it’s the same when booking singers.

TIP 4. Volume Levels and Professionalism (Important)

If you are bringing in an artist to perform during the wedding breakfast (recommended) it is extremely important to make sure they set their volume levels correct. The last thing you want is to blast the ears off your guests! They should be professional enough to know how to handle this situation.

It’s not their day, it’s yours, they are there to enhance the day, not dominate it.

This point is important and needs consideration, an inexperienced artist could get this wrong and risk messing up a crucial part of your day.

TIP 5. How to Book

If you like what you see on their site get in contact and ask for a brochure or demo CD.

Once you are happy with the site, brochure and demo CD the best thing to do is arrange a meeting.

When you meet up listen to what they are offering and have some questions ready.

Questions to ask.

1. How long have you been singing?
2. Terms of booking i.e deposits etc
3. Do you come with your own PA music system
4. Ask about volume levels
5. Ask if they have liability insurance, some venues won’t accept artists without it.
6. Ask if their equipment is Pat tested (electrical safety test)

Thats it, these tips are designed to help you on your quest to creating a fantasic wedding day.

By employing these tips you will be one step ahead and have confidence that you are bringing in quality on the biggest day of your life.

Good Luck

Best Wishes
