How Far in Advance Should I Book a Wedding Band?

How Far in Advance Should I Book a Wedding Band?

When planning a wedding, you may be looking to hire a wedding band, but when is the right time to start your enquires?

Most couples book their wedding band 12-18 months in advance. Any later than this, and you risk missing the boat with your favourite wedding bands.

Having said this, there is no set timeframe. We often take bookings for weddings 2 years before the date. Whilst this may seem over-zealous to some, booking 2 years in advance means you're pretty much guaranteed to secure the band you're looking for.

If a band is popular (like all of our bands!) it's safe to say that by January, 80% of their peak summer dates will be booked up. Saturdays are of course the most popular date for any function band, so if you've opted for a Thursday, Friday or Sunday wedding, you can afford to leave it a little later.

Mid-week weddings

With limited venue availability in the summer, many couples choose to go for a mid-week wedding. The benefit of a mid-week wedding is the increased availability of musicians, bands, venues and wedding suppliers. You may even find that hiring a band mid-week reduces the overall price of your wedding band.
