Not always given as much consideration as other aspects of the big day, the music you pick for your wedding is one of the main things which helps in setting the mood and tone of the day. Whether you choose to have a deejay, a band, or a string quartet is entirely up to you but it is important to keep in mind that each one of these categories gives a different vibe. Here are the pros and cons of each.
1. Wedding Deejay
At most weddings, the deejay usually comes out towards the end because it is usually a signal that the last, more informal part of the wedding is about to commence. Deejays add a very fun, carefree vibe to weddings because their speciality is usually modern, dance or even disco music which means that if you’re after a less serious approach to your big day, a deejay will definitely hit the spot. That said, not many would probably opt for a deejay during the ceremony itself because that part of the wedding is usually a bit more tight-laced. Deejays are also usually the cheapest music option.

2. Wedding Band
The right band can really liven up a wedding’s atmosphere and get the party started. Bands allow the kind of interaction that deejays and string quartets don’t usually provide. What’s more, bands can provide either a formal or informal vibe depending on the genre they play. Bands are also able to provide receptions with a bit of an edge. That said, like deejays, a band isn’t usually suitable for the seriousness of the ceremony itself so you would need to be prepared to get more than one music provider for your big day.
3. Wedding String Quartet
The most formal of all three categories, string quartets are extremely elegant. Although they can be a bit on the pricier side, string quartets are versatile in that you can use them for both the actual ceremony as well as the reception. The one issue with string quartets is that people will feel less likely to mingle and let loose because the music will set a more solemn tone than the other two options, however, if that’s what you’re after, string quartets will provide the perfect amount of sophistication to your day.
