Have you ever been to a wedding where the entertainment was subpar at best? You want your wedding reception to be the party of a lifetime, and while the venue and food can go a long way, there’s no substitute for good wedding entertainment. As you plan your reception, don’t make these mistakes to make sure your reception is the lively party you want.
- Going the DIY Route with Spotify—You sit down with your phone for an hour, put together a Spotify playlist, and just like that, you’ve got all the wedding entertainment you need, right? Sure, this is a cost-effective approach to entertaining at your reception, but there’s nothing like having a live performer to get your guests excited and out moving on the dance floor.
- Hiring Your Long-Lost Cousin as the DJ—Your distant relative is a DJ on the side, and as a bonus, he said he’ll do your wedding for free! You never know what to expect with this approach, so don’t make the mistake of hiring someone just because they say they play music at weddings and have some sound equipment.
- Not Defining Your Expectations Beforehand—What do you want from your wedding entertainment? Do you only want a certain genre of music? Are you open for your guests to put in requests? Figure out exactly what you want before you start interviewing options.
