Whether it’s your favorite movie theme tune or that advert that makes you cry, music makes the world go round and, it’s an essential part of your wedding day. It changes the atmosphere and feelings, which gets everyone on the dance floor to party.

It’s the year 2021, and that means over 365 days of beautiful weddings! But none of those weddings will be as important to you as yours, of course. You want your music to be a perfect reflection of you as a couple and great for your guests to love and party to all night, don’t you?

Although you might have a list of your favorite songs, you might be indecisive on whether to have a wedding band or a DJ, isn’t that right?

Here is why a band is better than a wedding DJ at your wedding reception. So, you can sit back and enjoy the music while you decide.

Why A Wedding Band Is Better

  • Bands are epic. A group of people rocking out on their instruments can be fun and dramatic and get the party started.
  • Music played by a live band almost always sounds incredible.
  • Any love ballads you choose are guaranteed to sound more heartfelt and emotional when performed by a live band.
  • A band can improvise and adjust the tempo of the songs to jazz things up when needed!
  • Even guests that don’t enjoy dancing will have fun watching a live band perform.
  • Band members often make sure everyone gets on the dance floor! Their music is always infectious.



  • While most bands are more than happy to learn a song for your first dance, the remainder of their repertoire might be quite specific. Just be sure to pick the band that plays your kind of music! Before you book, always hear them play at an event first.
  • Band members will always need a break between sets, which can create a lull in the music. But you can still have a playlist ready to fill the gap.
  • A band can often cost a fair amount of money, as each member needs to be paid.
  • A band will require a fair amount of space and many electrical outlets, so make sure you work this out before booking!
