Please help with my timeline (music).

Recommended Posts

Hi!

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

6:15ish ceremony

7pm - cocktail hour

8pm - dinner, first dance, etc.

then we'd have cake cutting around 10pm.

10pm huh.gif have DJ start for more dancinghuh.gif

 

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 midnighthuh.gif

Please help :) FI is fine with either plan, which is nice but I need help deciding! :)

What kind of band is the house band? I am personally using my own music for dinner, and only getting the band for the dancing (it's a Calypso band). I didn't want to have anything too loud and distracting during the dinner, so I'm just going to fill an ipod with various classic romantic songs that appeal to everyone (Sinatra, Louis Armostrong, etc).

 

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!

DJ is in more transformation amazing using in the music mania in the party but house band are of uniqueness because it give the essence of ethnic feel to your own cultural etiquette.

I agree choose one or the other. Maybe you could use Ipod for some music and use the band for the rest of the evening.

 

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.

Yes i agree with the other girls. Do one or the other. It may seem hard and of course you want everyone to have a good time, but both would be too much.

You may have already decided what you're going to do since I see your question is from a month ago, but I'm doing both a band and DJ. However, our package happens to come with both. They do 45 minute sets plus 15 minutes of DJ music in between plus 1 or 2 hours (whatever we decide) of DJ in addition to the 4-5 hours of the band playing. I think I'm going to use the DJ time during dinner and have the band play during the dancing part of the night, or start right around the dessert course. I'm just trying to decide how long we should have the band play. I wonder whether the band playing from 8-1 is too long...

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
