SF Wedding Guide - Bands & DJ's
While not everyone can have Billy Idol sing a live version of "White Wedding" at their wedding reception, San Francisco does have a near staggering variety of wedding reception DJs and bands ready to serenade the aisle procession and rock the dance floor.
A wedding band is one of the most important ways to set the mood at both the ceremony and reception. Some couples want live music for the ceremony, even opting to hire chamber quartets or professional guitarists to serenade the wedding party as they walk down the aisle.
And what would the reception be without a festive dance floor? From cocktail hour and the first dances to family toasts to the bouquet toss, music is a key compliment to wedding traditions. After dinner, old and young alike dance the night away celebrating the new union and older couples can rekindle romance with a slow dance.
When considering the perfect San Francisco wedding band or DJ, the couple should consider what type of music they want. The choice of music will dictate what wedding band or DJ to hire, and will help narrow the search for the perfect San Francisco wedding band or DJ from the onset. Also, does the band include set up and load out times in the time allotted for the wedding music, and will all fees be paid up front or after the wedding reception?
