Wedding Music, Bands & DJs

A wedding isn’t a wedding without good music! There are so many options when it comes to wedding music. You can hire a string quartet for your ceremony, and a wedding DJ or band (or both!) for your evening reception. Consider an acoustic guitarist for your background music at your wedding breakfast or someone to play the harp as your guests arrive - the possibilities are endless!

Hiring a DJ for Your Wedding

A wedding DJ is a great choice if you want a lively wedding reception - your wedding DJ will know all the best songs to play to get all your guests on the dance floor.

A top tip for hiring a wedding DJ - don’t worry about giving your DJ a list of songs to play at your wedding, but instead give them a list of what not to play! It’ll allow them more freedom to create a great party playlist for you, but will ensure they don’t play any songs you hate. It’ll save you time too!

Hiring a Wedding Band

A wedding band is a great option if you don’t want a DJ at your wedding. Bands create a different vibe at a wedding reception, making them a brilliant choice if you want a live music atmosphere. Chat to your band about what’s on their playlist - they will quite likely learn new songs for you at your request, but be aware it might come with an additional cost.

It’s also worth checking with your band what they’ll do between their sets - they will need to take a break! You can find out if they’ll do a DJ set or put a playlist on to keep people on the dance floor.

Make sure you check with your venue about if they have any sound limits and discuss this with your band or DJ or whatever other wedding musicians you may hire so they are aware of it!

Other Wedding Musicians You Can Hire

The possibilities are honestly endless when it comes to hiring music for your wedding. You could walk down the aisle to a romantic harpist or an inspiring string quartet, or hire musicians to play as your guests mingle at your drinks reception. If you’re planning a vintage style wedding, what about some retro-style singers? Or having a pianist play your first dance song? The possibilities for wedding music truly are endless.

Frequently asked questions regarding Music and DJs

When should I hire my wedding music and DJ?

A year ahead of time you can start searching for your wedding musician(s) or DJ. From four to six months they should be booked and ready to go. From two to three months you can start finalising your wedding songs and start practicing for your first dance!

What is the most popular music to have at a wedding?

A healthy mix of styles that appeals to everyone's varied musical tastes tends to hit the spot. Musicians and DJs tend to offer a wide variety of musical flavours, such as salsa, classical, choir, lounge, disco, jazz, rock, string quartet, regional, Spanish, pop, folk, and top hits.

How should I choose the music for my wedding?

Before hiring your musician or DJ, you should make sure they meet all your needs, your musical taste, your wedding style, as well as your budget. Choosing a musician or DJ can be a daunting task, with so many options and genres, so a great place to start is with your budget, and then envision what kind of music or which songs you want to hear throughout your wedding.

At what times during the wedding is music played?

Music sets the mood throughout a wedding, so it's important to know when there will be music playing, so that you can choose the right songs and genre. Of course, you can choose when you'd like to have music playing, but typically music is played during the ceremony, the couple's banquet entrance, throughout the banquet or at certain times, for the first dance and, of course, the celebration!

What is the average price for a wedding music band?

Prices for wedding music can range anywhere between £100 to £1000. Each price range caters to a unique set of needs and desires from couples. Photographers may offer wedding packages for different budgets, while others may create a personalised quote for your specific needs.
