created at: 2010-11-22Don’t break the bank to have a great event! Trying to save money while making a celebration can be a daunting task. Over the next couple of weeks or so I am going to run through the main services/vendors employed at an event to show you a few ways you can try to save a little. These postings will include advice and tips on the Event Organizer, the Photographer, the Caterer, the Decor and Flowers, and the Entertainment.

In this posting, I am going to start with the Entertainment.

Whether it’s a DJ or a live Band, this is a big one. You want your guests up there dancing and having fun.

A band is great if they play a variety of music and have an MC. There are people of all ages at your wedding and while Lady Gaga may be all the rage, a little Glen Miller wouldn’t hurt.

A DJ can do it all! They have any music you want, lights, an MC and some come with dancers to get your crowd moving, in case they are shy! DJ’s have different packages depending on your needs.

Entertainment may also include a small quartet or flutist for a wedding ceremony, or a pianist for cocktail hour. There are professionals out there, that have cd’s to listen to and websites where you can see them on video footage. Another option may be a local music school, there may be students that offer their services, or even instructors may play for you at a reasonable price.

If anyone has any questions or needs advice on any party related issue, please feel free to post a question on my blog or e-mail me at bonnie@goldeventplanner.com

Please keep an eye out for my next posting
