Whether it’s a relaxed musician, live band that you want to get people on their feet dancing, or more party vibes from a DJ that you’re after for your wedding entertainment, we think there’s some important questions to ask your Wedding entertainment supplier before proceeding with your booking.

Your wedding music is an essential part of the atmosphere of your reception. The key to finding the right entertainment supplier for you is to read reviews, watch YouTube videos of their performances and make sure their genre and style fits with your theme. Another important thing to keep in mind is budget. According to a survey by hitched.co.uk, couples spend on average just over £1,000 on their entertainment. So, it’s important to know what you’re getting for your money.
