DJ Or Live Band? Which One Is the Right One?

 One of the most popular questions when it comes to wedding planning is band or DJ? Sometimes the questions is answered so simply. There are many thing to take into consideration before making your final choice. Today we will be going over some of the pros and cons to each option in hope that you can make the right choice for your wedding. 

Let's start off with a DJ!

Having a DJ adds a more cool and laid back feel to a wedding.  A DJ is in artist in their own way. They are the ones that have to put the mixes together. They need to also are able to see what is working with the crowd and what music is not. 

Pro: Any song available at your request. It is very easy for a DJ to play any song you want to hear and it is going to sound exactly how you expect it to. These are some things that wont be the same when it comes to a band. 

Con: If the DJ doesn't have the right personality it can be a negative turn for the wedding. The music and DJ set the tone for the wedding. If they aren't charismatic and attentive it could bum out the wedding. 

Pro: More budget friendly. DJs are typically less expensive than hiring a live band. This is always a great way to save money and use that for something else. It is just important to ask yourself what is worth splurging on. 

Now lets take a look at the live band.

A live band can have a more formal tone to a wedding. If that is something you are looking for then a band might be the way to go. There some downsides to this choice just like having a DJ.

Pro: A band adds it's own spin to things. Having a live band adds some flare to common songs we hear. This is something a DJ can't quite pull off. They add personality to any song. 

Con: A band might only play one type of music. Unlike the a DJ a live band only has a certain amount of songs and genre at their finger tips. That means they might not be able to play all of the songs you have requests for. 

Pro: A live band fills the room. A live band has such a powerful vibe that it fills any room it is in. A live band is also a very engaging experience for guests. It embodies the word entertainment from the musical instruments to their wardrobe.
