     Selecting the right music can set the tone for your wedding and reception. The question is which should you choose Live Music or a DJ?  How do you decide which one is best for your ceremony?  Haven’t made your final decision yet?  Keep reading to determine which one is the right one for you.

Your guests will be treated to a memorable performance that will have them talking long after your ceremony is over. 

Another benefit of choosing live music is the ability to keep the crowd’s attention the whole time.   Live music is a great way to add to the ambiance and theme of your wedding.


One of the major cons is the cost.  Hiring a band tends to be more expensive than a DJ.  Also, it is not a feasible choice if you already have a set wedding budget.

Another thing you have to consider is the possibility of the selected band being a no-show.  Unfortunately, the unexpected can happen especially when it comes to your wedding day.

Lastly, live bands can take up space which isn’t ideal if you have a smaller venue.

One of the major advantages of the hiring of a DJ is the variety of music that is available.  This is great because you are able to transition to different songs with ease.  Also, guests can request their favorite songs at the reception without the possibility of the DJ not knowing how to play it.

Hiring a DJ is also less expensive than hiring a live band which is an added bonus for couples who are looking to cut down on cost.


Not hiring the right DJ can definitely affect the mood of the wedding. So, take this into consideration when you choosing one.   Another thing is that you won’t have the same effect that hiring a live band brings.  

There you have it.  Whether you select a live band or a DJ be sure to check them out. Furthermore, find the best one that not only reflects both of your music tastes and will have your guest on the dancefloor.
