The Best Way to Book Entertainment for your Wedding
I was chatting to Tania Irish Wedding Bands as they take care of our bookings for many leading Irish Wedding Bands, Wedding DJs and Singing Waiters. I was wondering how one could make the process of booking wedding entertainment. With 20 years of experience, they gave me a lot of advice that I thought would come in handy to all of you wondering how to take some of the pressure off. We all know that organizing a wedding can be hard and stressful. This Q & A is here to make the process easier for you!
Why should you book your entertainment with an agency?
Tania says “Booking with an agency will make things much easier and take some of the pressure off. All you need to do is send your info and the band you want and the agency will take care of the rest. With an agency, you are sure there will be no double bookings and the band is sure to turn up on your special day. As well as a guarantee the band will show up, they can help you with your queries and give you guidance when you need it.
How to book through an agency?
Look up agencies online, see if they offer bands that you are interested in. Once you’ve made your mind up on your favorite, contact us, make sure you give as much information as possible, the date, the venue, etc.
What are the common mistakes to avoid when booking a band?
Sara explained “It is important to listen to the band you want to book before committing to anything. This may sound obvious but you need to make sure they’re what you want first. Then, make sure you are booking a professional band that will deliver the performance that you want, there are a lot of bands out there but they won’t all be serious and professional. This is where a book through an agency comes in handy. Finally, one of the most important things is to book early. If your wedding is in the summer and on a Friday or Saturday, we highly recommend you book at least a year in advance.
What’s their favorite part of their job?
Getting feedback from the brides after the wedding, telling them how much they enjoyed their night and how easy the process was.
