How far in advance should I book a Wedding Band?

How far in advance should I book a Wedding Band?

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

Let's take a look at weddings for example. Here at Bands for Hire, we start taking bookings for weddings about 18 months before the date, which I know to some people may seem a little over-zealous. Booking 18 months in advance means you're pretty much guaranteed to secure the band you're looking for so it can be a very good idea.

However, most people plan to get married around a year ahead and so that is the most common time to book. The majority of band bookings are taken 8-12 months before the wedding day and any later than that and you start to miss the boat with your favourite wedding bands.

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