Should You Arrange Live Entertainment For Your Reception?

Your wedding reception will feature many important moments that keep your guests engaged, and entertained. You can start the evening with your first dance, and you and your partner can enjoy dances with your parents. Your event can also feature toasts, a bouquet and garter toss, and plenty of foods and drinks for everyone to enjoy. With so many events to track, and so many guests to interact with, live entertainers can be a welcome addition to your reception. Having a live band or a DJ to oversee music will put professionals in the room who understand how to maintain a festive atmosphere.

A DJ Or Live Band Can Help Keep Your Night Lively

If you want to put together a track list from a wide array of bands, you probably have the capacity to do so with your phone. When you have such easy access to songs, why should you consider hiring someone to perform live music, or to serve as a DJ? The reality of using your phone for music is that it can be difficult to maintain the energy of the room. Having someone in charge of your music means having someone who can change their playlist when necessary to preserve a festive atmosphere. You can also avoid awkward moments – for instance, you may not notice that you selected the unedited version of a song, but a DJ can be counted on to limit their playlist to appropriate tracks.

A live band can create a memorable experience, and make your wedding reception stand out to your guests. If you want to host a more elaborate or formal event, a live band can help you remain consistent with your theme. This decision can also provide you with music that relies less on current hits, and offer more variety and surprises to enjoy.

Should You Ask Someone To Serve As An MC During Your Reception?

While a day-of wedding coordinator can help keep your reception on track, they may not be the right individual to interact directly with guests and coordinate different activities. If you have a DJ or live band, you can ask the to relay messages about when different events are taking place, and when you need everyone’s attention. A special master of ceremonies may not be necessary, but if you want to put someone in charge, they can help keep your event on track.

Finding More Ways To Keep Guests Entertained During Your Reception

For some of your guests, the dance floor will have little appeal no matter what you do for music. You can keep them happy with great food and drinks, and count on them to interact with friends at your event. You can also provide special entertainment in the form of a photo booth, or even set up games inside or outside of your reception area.
