    We're starting to think about entertainment for our wedding, and trying to decide whether to go with a DJ or a band.  Having a great dance party is *very* important to us, so we're willing to spend quite a bit of our wedding budget on this.  Based on your own wedding (if you're already married) and other weddings you've been to, which one is better?

     

    DJ

    - less expensive ($1000 or less vs. about $3000 for a live cover band)

    - much bigger repertoire of songs

    - songs in their original version

    - takes up less space

     

    Band

    - the "wow" factor of live musicians

    - cover band adds their own twist to the songs, which could be awesome if they are good musicians

    - a mariachi band or reggae band would be a fun touch of local flavor

    - can be combined with iPod music for best of both worlds
