1. Ceremony:

The ceremony is all about you, these are the memories you will treasure forever. Whether is a Church Ceremony or Civil Ceremony the music should portrait you as a couple, it only has to make sense to you both.

2. Drinks Reception:

At this stage of your wedding you will want your guests start mingling to set out the right mood for your Party after the meal. The entertainment should be a welcome/greet type of act. Plus, the music shouldn’t be so overpowering that your guests have to shout to make conversation. The choices are: go for a sophisticated intimate background act or go for a corky unusual acoustic act. If you want to kick up a notch, there are also other types of entertainment you can add to your drinks reception music.

3. Wedding Entertainment During the Meal:

Although most people neglect this stage, there are some lovely surprise acts you can have during the meal or right after. Any walkabout act starting right after the meal, making sure they walk around for long enough to reach every table fits like a glove on your reception schedule. However, there are a few other surprise options that can help keep all the smokers and wanderers in the room while you wait for the band to start:

Singing Waiters

Rhythm & Beats Drummers

High Impact Surprise Act

Irish Dancers

Choreographed Interactive Irish Dancing

4. Wedding Bands:

Not much to say here, I think we all understand the importance of booking a professional experienced wedding band. The cover band of your choosing can make or break your party (no pressure!) so make sure to research, check out showcases and their Facebook page is also good intel to what they’ve been doing.

The trend at the moment in Ireland is having an instrument player jamming with a DJ, this works really well. If you are Party Animals, and curfew is not a word in your vocabulary, the Silent Disco is the way to go!
