Music adds solemnity, drama and emotion to your ceremony and atmosphere and fun to the celebration that night. The music and entertainment is meant to complement the style of your wedding – a formal wedding may require a string quartet at the reception or a more informal one might require the services of a DJ. Although there may be certain songs, tunes or styles of performance that are synonymous with weddings, choosing the music is all about individual and personal taste.
There will always be those events however where it is difficult to get the crowd going. All bands, regardless of how good or experienced they are will have 'quiet' nights, or nights where they'll have to work that bit (or that lot!) harder to get a party atmosphere going. (If a band tells you that they've never had a difficult night you can take it that they're not being fully honest with you!).
