Selecting Wedding Bands - How to Save Money Without Ruining Your Big Day

You're busy planning for your big day and you're already running short of money, right? This is a common lament of all people who are very particular about what their wedding and reception should be like. There are so many wonderful things you could organize for this, the biggest day in your life, that it's hard to keep track of the budget. However, this is something that you certainly have to do because you will unnecessarily get into debt if you don't. Take wedding bands, for example. It's tempting to get the biggest and most popular band possible because you so badly want your guests to have a great time. Thankfully, there are certain things you can do to reduce expenses without compromising on quality.

You have to be very tough when you negotiate with wedding bands because they are expecting you to do so. Feel free to ask for a discount on their published tariffs because there is a strong likelihood that they will offer it to you. Always shop around for options before you make your final selection because this will give you a good idea of what price you should pay. It also helps to give the band a gentle reminder that you are very price conscious and that you are looking at other options as well.

In addition, you should also find out what exactly they require and what equipment they will be bringing with them. Sound and light equipment is usually a big expense and you should avoid having to hire it out, even if it means looking at wedding bands that have this equipment. Alternately, you should choose a venue that is well equipped and which offers an all-inclusive package.

Bands usually charge based upon how long they have to play. You can keep your expenses under control by limiting this portion of the reception. Give clear instructions to the MC regarding when the event should be drawn to a close.

Transportation is usually another big expense. Certain wedding bands expect you to pay for their transportation and even their accommodation if they are coming from out of town. You should try and avoid the second expense at least by hiring a local band. It is very unlikely that you cannot find local musicians who can play the kind of music you want. Spend some time to search for them, using the internet preferably, because you are sure to find a really good band from your town or city. If you really want a particular group of musicians and they insist that you pay for transportation, then you should consider enlisting the help of a friend or a family member to pick them up and drop them back after the event is over.

Once you have finalized all details, you shouldn't waste any time to put everything down on paper. It is best that you sign a contract with the wedding band of your choice and also pay them a deposit so that they know that you mean business. This will ensure that your reception goes off very well.
