Tips on how and when to book the perfect wedding band. If you’re getting married this coming spring or summer and want live entertainment at your wedding, it’s time to start looking up bands. Choosing a live act can be daunting; how can you choose a band that will suit everyone’s tastes, and sets the right mood for every stage of the day? You definitely don’t want to leave it to the best man and his iPod.

Book early

It’s best to book as early as you can; this way you’ll have your pick of bands. People tend to book over the period from April to October, so it gets very busy then: it’s best if you can beat the rush. Saturdays are also peak wedding time in the summer, so if you plan to get married on this day make sure to book well in advance.
