Want to save big bucks on your wedding? One way to do so is to find cheaper options on having music for your wedding. Whether it’s for the ceremony, for the reception or both, here are some great tips on how to have quality music at your wedding for cheap.
iPod and speakers. Load your iPod up with a playlist of your favorite songs. Put it on shuffle or play them one after another in a specific order. Hook the iPod up to speakers so the music can be as loud as you want it to be.
Hiring a local band. Do you know a local band that hasn’t been signed yet? Maybe they get a few gigs here and there at clubs? Talk to them about being hired to play at your wedding. They will charge way cheaper than any professional bands.
Hiring music students. Students in the music and arts major can play really well, but can’t demand high prices due to their lack of professional experience. They will gladly take up gigs to add to their resume and charge a fraction of the cost.
Hiring a beginner deejay. Seen a DJ at a few clubs and bars that’s just starting out, but knows what they’re doing? Talk to them about deejaying at your wedding.
Hire friends/family. Do you know anyone that is in a band, sings well, plays an instrument well, deejays, or your friends or family knows someone? Hire them on. Even if they’re professional, they may offer you a family/friends discount.
Hire a school band. Are you into classical music and orchestra? This would be great for hiring a school band. Whether it’s a high school or a college or university band, the price will be way cheaper than what you originally thought!
