Pros & Cons of Wedding Band vs. DJ | Perfect Wedding


My name is Barbara Esses and I do events for
a living. I’m Ruthie Hecht; I’m an event planner and
I work with and for my mother. We’re going to teach you the do’s and don’ts
for the perfect wedding. There are many, many bands today who do weddings
as there are many, many DJ’s. It’s a very hard decision for brides and grooms
as to which they should have. Firstly, a band is more costly than a DJ so
that’s economics that plays into it. Secondly, a lot of people like the look of
a band versus the look of the DJ and that plays into it. Thirdly, DJ’s have extreme flexibility to
change the music and play all sorts of genres all night long going back and forth whereas
bands do play a lot of different things and generally not as much as a DJ. There are also weddings where the bands play
for four hours and then the DJ plays. Cause rather than paying a band overtime,
one can have a DJ take over. One can also go back and forth between a DJ
and a band playing some electronic music the bands can’t play. But generally speaking, get a feeling – bride
and groom – if you’ve been to other weddings or if you’ve seen other weddings, get a feeling
if you’re more comfortable with a DJ or if you’re comfortable with a band.
