Wedding DJ – Why It’s The Better Choice Over A Band

When it comes to planning out a wedding, people have a lot of different things which they need to consider.

One of the most important questions which you’ll find that people ask is this.

Do you hire out a wedding DJ, or do you opt for a band?

We’re going to be taking a look at why the DJ is the better choice for your wedding.

The Cost

One way in which a DJ is often a better choice for your wedding is because there’ll be a reduced cost.

When you hire out a band, you’re sometimes looking at costs for their time, their fuel to get to the venue, and a lot of other factors which make hiring out a band a much more expensive process than if you were hiring out a DJ.


Now, this isn’t a cruel observation, but a band can’t constantly play non stop.

They’re a finite force, and their capacity is governed by their stamina and knowledge of music.

A DJ, however, isn’t bound by those issues.

The wedding DJ has access to constant non-stop music and does not need to rest or stop, which makes it good for a constant stream of tracks to be played.


Another way in which a wedding DJ is better than a band is that they have access to everything.

While a band is a great idea, what you’re going to hear from any band is a cover of well-known songs.

Some people like the idea of a tribute band, and that’s fine.

However, other people are not as much of a fan and find the original versions of a song to be the far superior option.

This is where a DJ takes the lead regarding flexibility.

They can play any song for you, and it can be the original rendition or a cover by a famous band.

DJs have access to a far broader and more obscure collection of music, which makes them a more popular choice in a lot of situations.

Overall, these are just a few of the reasons why having a wedding DJ would be a better choice than having a band.

While it could be argued that a band is a more traditional wedding, it’s not something which will influence a lot of soon to be married couples.

When it comes to choosing whether to have a wedding DJ or a band, it all depends on how either arrangement will fit into their vision of their wedding.

More often than not, you’ll find that a wedding DJ will fit into more situations because it’s a flexible option for everyone.

Not only do they have access to every possible song, but they also have the potential to be able to play consistently from the start of the wedding to its end.

This makes them quite highly prized among couples as there’s no interruptions or changes during the day, and they can just enjoy all of the music and atmosphere which you’ll find at a wedding.
