Food, Food, Food!!!

The Square One Band, like every other band I know of and have played with, really appreciates a great meal before their performance. We are always very appreciative when our clients allow us to eat whatever the guests at their event are served, and given that has happened many times, we have had the pleasure of eating at some great (and not so great) catered weddings.  Of course, there are many things to keep in mind when choosing the right caterer for your big day. Here is an article that looks at some things to consider when making that all-important decision.

 

Ceremony Music

Many brides (and I say brides because let’s face it guys, the bride’s usually have the final say when it comes to making wedding decisions) opt to have live musicians play during the ceremony. While this is a great added touch, it can often add a significant expense to your overall music budget. If you have your heart set on having live music played during your ceremony,  here are some ways to save money and still be happy with the outcome.

1) Instead of using a string section, find out if the band has a keyboardist that can play string patches on his keyboard. While it may not be as visually pleasing, many of todays string samples sound incredibly realistic.

2) See if the band’s guitarist will play acoustic guitar and have the band’s vocalist accompany him.

3) Find out if anyone in the band plays another instrument, such as violin or cello. This will remove the need to bring an outside musician just for the ceremony.

Until next time, happy wedding planning!
