Wedding planning involves a lot of work, which means you cannot deal with different things at the same time. So how soon should you book a wedding DJ?
The answer to this question is another question. How important is having a great wedding music for you? Musicians and an event DJ can only be at one location at a time. In case your top choice is already booked on the day of your wedding, then it is obvious that he cannot play for your event. Therefore, if you really want to get your top choice then you need to book early. But if that does not matter that much to you then you can focus on the part of your wedding that you care the most first.
So how soon is soon when it comes to booking a Myrtle Beach wedding DJ? The average couple who wants to hire a wedding DJ must book their first choice at least eight months before the wedding day.
Wedding Ceremony Music Only
Couples who book live music for cocktail time or a ceremony, but not an event DJ who can whip up music for dancing, usually reserve a spot at least 5 months earlier. The first thing you need to do is to decide on your reception music. Then think about what you want your ceremony music to be. However, keep in mind that a lot of people reserve both with just one company or event DJ.
Services such as decorative uplighting are usually reserved a bit closer to the wedding date, at least five months before the big day. The first thing you should do is nail down the entertainment first and then finalize other services including the décor.
The Earliest and The Latest
It is not uncommon for couples to reserve their preferred music with a wedding DJ one year before the wedding date to make sure that they get their first choice of performer. There are those who have booked with Hubbell Entertainment as early as two years before the big day. You might be able to get a wedding DJ two months or even two weeks before your wedding but you will not have enough time to think about the music you want or any other requests you might have.
Why Book Early?
More Selection – your favorite wedding DJ and string or jazz ensembles are more likely to be available if you ask in advance.
Better Price – the rates of professional wedding DJs and musicians may be the same or it may also increase – but they never go down. And although your caterer has the right to increase your bill, if food costs go up entertainers seldom do that. By locking in a rate in advance, you might be able to save a bit overall.
More Fun – planning your wedding is an exciting experience as long as you do not do everything at the same time. The sooner you decide on the things you need to buy and the vendors to work with, the more time you will have to tack your vision decisions like what music theme you want to have at your reception.
Call Hubbell Entertainment and book your wedding music ahead of time.
