Smart Wedding Planning: Entertainment at a Low Cost
Almost every wedding planner in the world is conscious about their intended budget for the event. If it is entertainment that is being talked about here, then you especially have to be keen when it comes to choosing your surprise entertainer of your choice. One does not have to be so disappointed with having an underwhelming performance from a cheap surprise singer or entertainer in this case. Well, it is one lucky timing for you, as this article would provide you the answers to look for the quality performances that you are aiming for on your wedding day.
Firstly, do not be afraid to go around the block. Start with having your friends and family give you some suggestions to go to wherein you could do some comparison shopping in the process. Really invest in some time to listen to those entertainers that could do the job for you. Do not go straight to conclusions if you have found the surprise entertainer that has a lower rate, as there are some singers out there that may charge a bit higher but have some extra juice thrown into their performance. If you are really invested on that performer to really play at your wedding, then be strong in asking for some price negotiations in order to maximize your comparable shopping endeavors.
You must be straightforward with the budget you are willing to put out. You may not have the performance that you are expecting with their presence, but you could get the chance to have some alternative options thrown into the mix. It could either be a shorter presentation or may be have some few performers do the task on stage. If you want some consistency, then have that small indie band play during the reception and ceremony. Having to extend for a number of hours is actually not that costly compared to having a second band do the reception. The mood that was set-up during the ceremony would carry out through the reception by having one band do the whole suggested romantic playlist. You should remember that almost every single thing in a wedding production is negotiable. This would have you state the performances that is needed for that band to play out during the whole event, thus enabling you to cut off unnecessary additional perks.
Know what to prioritize with the budget you have for the wedding. Who knows, secret singers or singing waiters could be a worth it entertainment for the audience attending the event. It is not much of a bad idea to have a custom playlist be the whole entertainment during the proceedings. You would save up more than having to hire a costly DJ or band do the gig. But, there are instances wherein a couple may struggle to go about with their budget if they want to have the latest and ‘hippest’ bands play during their wedding day. This is where you would negotiate to those other sectors designated on your budget.
