How To Find Great Wedding Musicians
Once you have an idea about what kind of music you want, talk to the locals.
Local churches, music stores and online search engines are all good resources for finding local musicians or DJs.
Live bands cost quite a bit more than a DJ (often charging 2-10 times more), so keep your budget in mind as you look at different options. It's not uncommon to spend 5-8% of the budget on all of the different musicians, so use our free Budget Tracker to start managing your wedding budget today!
You may choose to have the same or different vendors for your wedding and ceremony — and there are pros and cons of both. At the end of the day, select the musicians (and the music) that will create the environment and experience you want.
