Wedding Reception Music on a Budget- Money Saving Entertainment Tips

Fabulous Sounding Wedding Ceremony Music, Special Music for Wedding Vows

First Presbyterian Church Waunakee Wisconsin


So you’re on a limited budget.  You think you can’t afford live musicians for your wedding ceremony? But you would like to have some fabulous sounding special music, a great PA system and a state-of-the-art wireless microphone so that every word of your wedding vows can be clearly heard, yet you don’t want to break the bank?  Fortunately you do have some options for wedding ceremony music and there are a couple of steps you can take to reduce costs while still creating a special and unique atmosphere for your wedding ceremony. Here are a couple of tips that can help improve your Big Day and save you some money.


Find Your Own DJ/MC Wedding Reception Entertainment Event Coordinator


While it may offer you peace of mind to book your DJ/MC entertainer through an entertainment agency, you will almost always pay less if you remove the middle man and book your DJ directly. When booking your own DJ/MC, research is critical. While some sites are great resources to find and compare wedding DJ/MC entertainment, be aware that many websites like All Time Favorites Event,,, and charge or take a cut from the DJ/MC and this may increase your total cost.  While the price a client pays for their wedding reception vendors is often directly proportional to the quality of service they receive (which is also directly proportional to the success of their event) paying more for your DJ/MC, than you would otherwise have to, is never a good investment or a sound entertainment choice.


Add the Cocktail Hour


This tip may seem counter intuitive, but you can often get more value for your money (and a discounted rate) if you have your DJ/MC entertainment company provide a PA system, wireless mics and music for your wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Great sounding wedding ceremony music adds that special something to make your Special Day more memorable. By applying these two tips you may be surprised how affordable hiring a wedding reception DJ/MC for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception can be!
