You’ve booked your dream band for your wedding reception, but what about the ceremony and cocktail hour music? We’ll admit, having great entertainment can be a wedding reception highlight but it’s also important to consider what music elements will be factored into other parts of the big day. Whether it’s a solo musician, an acoustic duo or trio, having live music to accompany a wedding ceremony and cocktail hour are key.
Wedding Ceremony Ensemble Recommendations: Light, beautiful instrumentals
String Quartet (Dolce)
Cocktail Hour Music Recommendations: Acoustic yet lively arrangements with vocals
Acoustic Duo (Singer + Acoustic Guitar or Singer + Piano)
Acoustic Trio (2 Singers + Acoustic Guitar/Piano or Singer + Acoustic Guitar/Piano + Cajón)
Instrumental versions of your favorite song(s) can be played as guests enter and as you walk down the aisle. And after the “I Do’s”, there’s nothing better than listening and singing along to live music as you sip cocktails and mingle with your favorite people. Downbeat LA offers these add-ons with every dance band booking, so make sure your choice in entertainment can cover all the bases for the big day!
