Edinburgh Wedding Bands, Discos & Musicians
Traditionally at weddings in Edinburgh and Scotland there will be an evening reception that will
take place after the wedding breakfast. The majority of couples opt for a disco, a band,
a ceilidh band or a mixture of 2 or 3 of these.
Choosing your evening entertainment is an extremely important part of your wedding planning
as typically this can last around 5 hours or more. You want your guests to enjoy themselves
and get up on the dance floor so it pays to do some research before settling for a wedding
band or disco.
One good way to choose an edinburgh wedding band or wedding disco is by personal recommendation.
Have you been to a wedding or even recently and enjoyed the music? If so, this is one way to ensure
that you get a band or disco that you enjoy. Alternatively you can ask friends for recommendations.
Have a think about the sort of music that you and your guests will enjoy. Many couples opt for a
traditional Scottish ceilidh whereas others opt for a band that plays covers or a DJ with a disco.
If you are not sure, how about a combination of 2 of these? Many bands will play both ceilidh music
and covers or will combine live music with a disco. DJs can also play ceilidh songs and if you are on a budget
a disco can work out cheaper than a band.
Before booking a band or a disco make a short list of your prefered bands or DJs. Visit their websites,
listen to their sample music if they have some and contact them to find out prices.
