Please help with my timeline (music).
Posted 25 February 2009 - 03:12 AM
We are trying to book our music and I'm not really sure whether we should have a band for the entire time or just for dinner and then a DJ for after-dinner. We are having the house band, which is supposedly good and other brides have told me they got people dancing. But we were thinking our friends might dance more if we had more modern music - so we were debating having a DJ for the second half of our reception.
Here's the timeline we are using
7pm - cocktail hour
8pm - dinner, first dance, etc.
then we'd have cake cutting around 10pm.
10pm have DJ start for more dancing
Do you think it is a good idea to have a mix? It would save us some money (DJ is cheaper than the band) and I think people might have more fun?? Do you that's a good idea or is that too complicated??
I was thinking they could transition during cakecutting or just after cake cutting, but I don't know if this would be awkward or not?
Also, if we get DJ then - should we just have it for 1 1/2 hours until 11:30pm or for 2 hours and go until midnight
Please help FI is fine with either plan, which is nice but I need help deciding!

Are you really stoked on the band? You could also just get a DJ for the entire evening and it would save you some money from the sounds of it. I think you'll probably want at least 2 hours of dancing time anyways, especially if you have a fairly active group of guests.
I guess the main thing is what sort of vibe you want to have going throughout the evening, and what sort of guests you have. Definitely not easy to decide this stuff though!

I really wanted a steel pan band but I'm still up on the air because I'm not sure of the variety of music. At least with a DJ you can create a playlist.
