3. Indulgent entertainment
DJs, a string quartet and even a five-piece wedding band can liven up your wedding beautifully without costing too much. If you need to indulge a special love of Elvis impersonators, jugglers or belly dancers, though, you can easily run out of money. It’s important to keep your wedding entertainment expectations under control.
A wedding band, however, is not the only way to entertain your guests without huge expenses. A local college band is also a good option to consider. Young musicians will likely jump at a chance to get experience and such bands usually cost less than professionals. In general, a DJ will be cheaper than a live band.
