Wedding Entertainment Budget

Wedding Entertainment Budget

If you're currently putting together your wedding budget, you're probably wondering what exactly you'll get for your money when it comes to the evenings entertainment. Take a look at some of the following suggestions and email us if you'd like any further help:

£500 and under

After looking around on the net for wedding entertainment, it may seem like a £500 budget will really limit your options but that's not necessarily the case as there are plenty of options for solo acts, duos and jazz bands

DJ and Live music during the meal
Booking a DJ based in your region means you can keep costs down. Our DJ's are based all around the country to make sure your money isn't being spent on petrol! This means you can keep some of your budget for live music during the wedding breakfast. We have a wide network of solo pianists, classical guitarists, harpists and solo jazz acts, so even if you can't find what you're looking for on our site, do feel free to drop us an email and we'll do our best to find a package that suits your budget.

Acoustic / Piano Duo
Another option is to keep all of your budget for the end of night music. At around £500-£600, you could book an acoustic duo to keep the party atmosphere going. Most duo's will put together a set list that contains a mixture of Rock n Roll, Soul, Motown, right through to more contemporary chart songs.

£1000-£1500

This is the most common budget put aside for the wedding band and a number of function bands are available at this price. You'll most likely be looking at a 4-piece band performing 2 or 3 sets throughout the night. You'll find that the majority of bands are happy to play music through their pa system between their live sets. It's often the case that the Bride and Groom would prefer to put a playlist together on their own iPod playlist which isn't usually a problem for the band.

£1500-£2000

At this budget, you'll have the freedom to really go to town on your wedding entertainment. A number of 5-piece bands go out at this price bracket, many offering a DJ package for an additional fee.

£2000-£3000

The world is your oyster! From an 7-piece Motown Tribute band to a full 10-piece swing band. Adding brass to the line-up is certain to really make the night that extra bit special. You'll also have the option to book a DJ as well just to make the night run at full flow.

Whatever your budget, we're here to help. Many of our acts offer alternative line-ups to suit your budget so do feel free to send us an email with what you're looking for.
