Importance of Wedding Entertainment

The Importance of Wedding Entertainment often gets overlooked by couples. But should it? This is the biggest day of your life, or at least, one of them! And most importantly, it is a celebration. So CELEBRATE! What happens on a wedding day? Once you and your guests are at the wedding venue, the wedding ceremony takes place, you have some photos taken, reception drinks then the wedding breakfast followed by speeches. ALL of this happens within just a few hours – say 1pm to 6pm. You then have another 5 to 6 hours to fill – the same time again as you’ve already spent on getting married, photos and a big meal!

Many couples leave entertainment to the last minute, not realising or thinking about the amount of time left following the wedding breakfast. And also that those not fortunate enough to be at the main wedding also want something to be involved in when they turn up for the reception.

Those that do leave it to the last minute often just go with the default thinking; ‘oh we’ll just book a local DJ’. Come on guys!! This is your wedding day!!

Whilst we appreciate that some DJ’s / discos are good, you simply cannot recreate the atmosphere with an MP3 / vinyl / CD or whatever pre-recorded source played through a PA system. Think about it – when have you been to Wembley Stadium to hear U2’s greatest hits played by…… Chris Evans on his Radio 2 show. You would expect to see a live band.

Its the same with music at your wedding. What a band provides is not just audio, but a visual / audio experience and also a human interactive experience.

The RockPins also offer an independent disco service; DiscoGenius, but we would always recommend a live band (where clients have budgeted for it).

Cost of a live Band

Yes, the cost of a live band will likely be more than a good DJ, but again, look at the number of hours you will be entertained. The RockPins typically arrive at 6pm, set up and sound check by 7.30pm and then provide a mix of live music (3×40 minute sets) from 7.30pm through to the end of the night. Plus we can sing your first dance (for a small fee – if we don’t already know it).
