Live Wedding Band FAQ

  • How far in advance should I book a wedding band?

    For you to get the wedding band you really want we suggest you look at booking them at least a year in advance. Booking a live wedding band any later than 6 months before your wedding could mean they are already booked up. Popular wedding bands get booked years in advance so when you see the band you want we suggest you book them quickly!

  • How much is a live band for a wedding?

    Prices for live bands can vary wildly but wedding bands worth booking start from around £600 and can go all the way up to £5000 easily. A good three-piece live band can range from £600 to £1000, 4 piece bands from £800 to £2000 and 5 piece bands or bigger can start from £1000 right up to £5000. You have to bear in mind extra petrol costs, other expenses and off-peak and peak season price fluctuations so for example, if you booked a 6 piece wedding band in the off-peak season that was based near to your venue they could actually cost less than booking a 3 piece band in peak season that’s based 100 miles away from your venue. It’s always worth asking any live wedding band or their representatives about discounts or offers too. For all the information and answers check out our in-depth post all about it HERE.

  • How long should a wedding band play for?

    Typically, wedding bands play for 2 hours usually splitting that into 2×1 hour or 3×40 min sets. Over the standard 4 to 6 hour period that a wedding band stays with you, the live sets usually begin around 8 pm/8:30 pm and finish around 11:30 pm/12 am with background music or a DJ in between. Of course, once fully set up, any wedding band should be able to perform any type of set length at any time you need them to assuming you have agreed on it with them beforehand. Wedding bands do regularly perform for longer than two hours and often past 12 am if required.

  • When should you have music at your wedding?

    You can have wedding music at any time during your wedding but the most popular and suitable times are at the wedding ceremony, drinks reception and most commonly at the evening party after the wedding breakfast. Having a fantastic live band during your evening party is the perfect way to celebrate getting married with friends and family.

  • Can wedding bands perform first dances?

    Most wedding bands are happy to perform first dances at weddings provided the bride and groom discuss their song ideas with them beforehand. Not all songs can be replicated by live wedding bands so it’s always best to check with your band or their representatives first.
