There’s nothing quite like a wedding, is there? Despite the many different cultural differences and sociopolitical divisions to which we are all subject today, there’s just something about a wedding that transcends all of that. This is due in no small part to the idealism that a wedding represents. The idea of promising yourself to someone – and having themselves, in turn, promise themselves to you – “for better and for worse, in sickness and in health” is as beautiful as it is universally desirable. A marital union, at its best, is nothing short of harmonious, and so it should come as no surprise that wedding music is one of the most time-tested parts of the whole ceremony.
That being said, for as widespread as Mendelssohn’s Wedding March and other common wedding tunes are, in the same way all unions are unique, each wedding needs and deserves a soundtrack of its own. As such, here’s what you can expect from Bondah Wedding Band for hire.
Bands Big and Small
One of the most commonly overlooked questions with respect to the issue of wedding bands is that of their size. Sure, you’ve probably given some thought as to what type of music you want to hear at your wedding, but what about the size of the band playing it in the first place? Do you want a big band, a small duo, or something in between? And what can your venue and wedding setup accommodate?
For example, if you’ve set your heart on a small, intimate wedding, having a huge wedding band can seem a bit overbearing. By contrast, if you’re having a massive wedding with dozens or even a couple hundred guests, a mere duo might well be drowned out by all of the noise.
The best agencies offering wedding bands for hire will schedule a consultation around your schedule, during which time they will discuss, among other things, which band size best fits your needs.
Setting Up and Set Length
In addition, this initial meeting can go a long way towards determining other vital factors of your wedding. Wedding bands often play sets of half an hour, 45 minutes, or a full hour. You will therefore be able to determine the length of the sets as well as how many you wish to have played during your wedding reception.
In addition, the best wedding bands will handle the matter of setting up for their performances well in advance of your wedding. They will set up everything from state of the art speaker and acoustical equipment to guitars, drums, bass, digital music players, and other necessary items. All of this will be arranged close enough to the festivities for your guests to enjoy while not leaving wires strewn across the dance floor.
Types of Music
The best wedding bands can play all manner of different music, including:
- Traditional music from a number of different cultures
- Classic rock
- Disco music
- Classic jazz and big band numbers
- Modern pop music
- And much more
