Having live music at your wedding in often considered a luxury rather than a necessity.
However, as many singers now provide a DJ service at no extra cost, it has became a very popular and wise choice for the following reasons.
1 – SAME PRICE AS A DJ
If you have been engaged for a while, you would probably have already got some quotes from DJ’s ranging from $1000 – $1500+ for the professionals.
For the same price you can have a live acoustic guitarist and singer who also provides DJ sets with lighting all in one package!
2 – MORE MEMORABLE
Yes of course DJ’s, especially the pro’s, will get your dance floor rocking and your guests will have an awesome, memorable night BUT if you book a professional singer guitarist (see video below as an example) your guests will enjoy the ambient acoustic sounds of their favourite songs during their meal/drinks and then also get to sing and dance along to some upbeat live sets. You just can’t beat the atmosphere of a live performer!
If this wasn’t enough, you still get to dance to hours of DJ music as the night progresses, like you would with a regular DJ.
3 – UNIQUE FIRST DANCE
Most wedding singers will perform your first dance for no extra cost. This can be any song you like and instead of having the same track played through speakers as thousands of other couples around the world will and have, you will have a special version which, depending on the song choice, could be the only version that anyone has ever heard just for you and your guests.
4 – SERENADED DOWN THE AISLE
You can even have your wedding musician serenade you as you walk down the aisle!
Ask if your live musician will perform a special song as you walk down the aisle. They would usually have a package to cater for this as well as live music while your sign the register and then as you exit as Mr and Mrs! A beautiful addition to your already special day.
5 – TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!
Most musicians also perform at public events such as cafe’s, restaurants and bars in order to fill gaps in their diaries.
Ask your wedding singer if he/she has any public events coming up so that you can come to watch and even have a chat about your big day and they will no doubt be more than happy to meet you during their breaks.
You can then really see what you are going to get!
