How to Budget for A DJ, Singer or Musician for Wedding Entertainment in Tamworth

If you are getting married soon, you no doubt have a long list of things to arrange for the wedding ceremony and reception. Ordering flowers, choosing a caterer and selecting a dress are relatively straightforward, but if you’ve never hired a musician or band before, you might not know how to go about arranging and budgeting for your wedding entertainment in Tamworth.

Things to Consider Before You Book Your Wedding Entertainment

To help you decide whether you should budget for a singer, musician, band or rather book a wedding DJ in Tamworth, start with the plans you already have in place. What kind of mood do you want to create at your wedding? How much space is available for musicians or a DJ at the venue? How much can you afford to spend? Once you have the answers to these questions, you can start planning your wedding entertainment in earnest.

 

What Affects the Cost of Wedding Entertainment in Tamworth?

  • The number of entertainers you hire will be one of the biggest factors for your budget. A band with several members will cost more than a solo singer or wedding musician in Tamworth. If you are on a tight budget, consider hiring a musician or singer who uses backing tracks to fill out their sound.
  • The popularity of an entertainer can make a big difference to the cost. Well known performers command a higher price. If your first choice is unattainable, don’t be discouraged. There are lots of other bands, musicians and wedding singers in Tamworth who offer excellent quality entertainment. Listen to a few demos and consider alternatives to your first preference.
  • The length of performance time will affect your bottom line. Bands usually do three or four sets at an event. The length of a set can be from 40 minutes to an hour. If you have your heart set on a band that is a bit pricey for your budget, consider cutting back on performance time.
  • Logistics will also influence the bottom line. If you plan your wedding at a remote venue, your wedding entertainer (or entertainers) might charge extra for travelling costs and time.
