Wedding Entertainment FAQs

The average cost of wedding entertainment depends upon the style of wedding entertainment you choose and when and where you're getting married. Prices can range from a few hundred pounds for a solo act like a singer-acoustic-guitarist or magician to £1,000 upwards for a 4-5 piece wedding band. In general, the more members in the act, the more you can expect to pay. Hiring wedding entertainment near you can help you save money on travel expenses.

You should book your wedding entertainment as far in advance as possible! The most popular wedding bands and performers often fill their diaries up to two years in advance (sometimes even farther ahead), especially during the peak wedding season spring/summer weekends. If you find an act you love, snap them up as soon as possible to avoid missing out.

Plan your wedding entertainment with your guests and your venue in mind.

Ideally, you'll know the location of your wedding prior to planning the entertainment. Hiring your venue first means you'll be able to visualise the sort of entertainment that'll fit the setting and know about any performance or space restrictions the venue has in place. With a date and venue secured, you'll also be able to get the most accurate quotes if you're planning on hiring professional entertainment.

While it's important that you fall in love with your chosen entertainment, you also need to consider who'll be attending and what they'll be doing during each part of the day. Are you hiring wedding ceremony musicians? Consider keeping them on to perform for guests while you have photographs taken. Are there a couple of hours to spare between your ceremony and the wedding breakfast? A performance from an acoustic duo or a close-up magician could be just the thing to keep guests occupied during these quieter moments. Are you hiring a wedding band? Your evening wedding reception music is another decision where you should consider the ages and tastes of your guests - you'll want to add your personal touch while still giving everyone something to get down to on the dance floor!

If you've never planned live entertainment before (and who has?!), all this can seem daunting, but there's no need to fret - a good entertainment agency will have encountered almost any wedding planning pitfall possible and can offer you all the advice and guidance you need to plan wedding entertainment that runs smoothly and without fuss.

There are two school of thought on this one. The first is to spend hours meticulously viewing as many acts as possible so you can be certain you've found the perfect act to fit your wedding, your theme and your identity as a couple. The second is to go with your gut - sometimes you'll see a band, and like in love, you just know they're the one for you. Either approach works.

We'd always urge you to do a little extra research once you've found your ideal wedding entertainment; does the act have great reviews? How about the agency you're booking from? Is payment secure? Are there contracts in place tying the act to your event? A reputable act or agency will be able to reassure you on all these questions.

Whatever you can imagine, there's an act out there who can do it! Wedding entertainment has come a long way in recent years. Enormous demand for live entertainment at weddings has drawn the best young musicians into the industry, who've brought with them a melting pot of musical genres. The styles of wedding entertainment on offer include:

  • Rock and Pop Bands
  • Modern Pop, RnB and Dance Bands
  • Acoustic Folk-Pop Bands
  • Soul, Funk, Disco and Motown Bands
  • Jazz and Swing Bands
  • Rat Pack and Big Bands
  • Indie, Britpop and Pop-Punk Bands
  • Bandeoke / Rockaoke Bands
  • Tribute Bands
  • Vintage-Themed Bands
  • Rock 'n' Roll Bands

And that's just the bands! Other musicians and entertainers for you to consider include:

  • Acoustic Solos and Duos
  • Pro DJs
  • DJ Live Acts
  • Singing Waiters
  • String Quartets
  • Pianists
  • Sax Players
  • Harpists
  • Singers and Choirs
  • Magicians
  • Caricaturists

This all depends on you and your wedding!

Live bands bring spectacle, charisma and buckets of atmosphere; even the sounds of a band tuning up are enough to set the anticipation flowing for an evening of wild celebrations. Plus, most bands will put on a DJ service between their sets to keep up the energy on the dance floor.

DJs meanwhile are ideal if you want more control over the music you'll be hearing. A good band will know a decent number of songs, but a DJ has access to almost any song ever recorded... and they take requests, so you can customise your night on the fly. If your venue has limited space or a sound limiter set below 90DB, a DJ is a great choice to work around these restrictions while still giving an unforgettable night of entertainment.

Why not combine the best of both worlds with a DJ and Live Musician act? Bringing Balearic vibes, these exciting performers feature DJ sets enhanced with live sax, vocals, percussion, guitar, or horns for a thrilling superclub experience.

Recent Reviews

"We had a wonderful evening, thank you. The band were absolutely fantastic! People didn't leave the dance floor all night and we had a great time. The band were helpful in their correspondence with us beforehand. They turned up early, set everything up and were ready to go when needed. The band helped make our evening reception really special and we are so glad we picked them. The playlists between were also a perfect mix of new and older tunes to get all generations dancing. 5/5. The booking process through entertainment nation was also great. You were very helpful in liaising with the band and getting us all the information we needed from the band such as insurance and certification for the venue. Overall very happy with the service!"
Aysa and Jake - Wedding - Stratford Upon Avon
"We were so incredibly pleased with the Dance Floor Fillers and Entertainment Nation. EN made it so easy to find entertainment for our wedding, not only was the website easy to navigate but all communication with Izzy was fast and easy. She was great to work with! The band themselves communicated with us before the wedding asking us all sorts of questions about song choices so that their sets were personal to us. I can't express enough how amazing this band is! Not only did they learn our first dance song for us but they kept the dance floor packed the entire night. We had the best evening and the Dancefloor Fillers were a major part of that. Highly recommend Entertainment Nation and Dancefloor Fillers. One million stars!"
Kathleen and Andrew - Wedding - Northumberland
"From the day we started planning our wedding, music was always going to be a huge thing and we were totally set on having a band. We looked on Entertainment Nation and saw The Rhythm Detectives. The type of music they played was right up our street so we booked them straight away. Everyone at Entertainment Nation was so helpful, providing us with everything I needed and consistently replying to me in really quick time no matter what time I emailed. It was great to speak to a member of the band before the big day so that we could make specific requests for certain songs. They created a perfect set list based on our requests and it was perfect. So many people came up to us after the gig on the day and said how great they were. They really made the night and their performance was perfect. The fact they were a great bunch of lads who were a pleasure to have at our wedding was the added bonus. Would recommend to anyone!"
Joe and Imogen - Wedding - Northamptonshire
"When we first decided to have live music at our wedding, after a little research through Entertainment Nation, listening, watching the videos and reviewing their repertoire, we liked the sound of Ocean Rain. We could not have been more delighted with our choice. From the beginning both Entertainment Nation and Alex, one half of this amazing duo, was so helpful, and gave us so much reassurance, that not only would they be completely reliable, they were dedicated to making our day really special too. They were super flexible and nothing was too much trouble. I had regular updates from Entertainment Nation and the band themselves were professional, fun, talented and thoughtful throughout our special day. They were a pleasure to talk too, and played the song for our first dance live, which made it extra memorable. All our guests have commented on how fantastic they were and we would gladly recommend them to anyone."
Nicola and Steve - Wedding - Kent
"Taylor was simply fantastic. Great communication beforehand, and nothing was too much trouble. He has a laid back style which was great, and my mind was always at rest knowing that everything was under control. Everyone at our party absolutely loved the performance, especially those that were encouraged to join in a bit. What a voice! Taylor also wrote a personalised song for my wife which was fantastic and something that I'm sure we will listen to for the rest of our lives. I'm really pleased to have found Taylor. We've had so many complements about him from our guests."
William F - Party - Kent
"We had a great experience working with this band and they were perfect for our Wedding! The band were easy to communicate with and helpful in all our enquiries. The band learnt a specific song for our first dance which made it extra special for us (thank you!). The sound set up on the day was of high quality and awesome musicianship evident throughout the set. Alongside this the band were great company and fitted in well with our Wedding guests. Highly Recommend! Many Thanks, Alexandra and Will "
